- Worked out of the box
Fast, around 25MBps (with Gigabit Switch)
Wake on LAN
- Bit Pricey, but worth it...
- Replaced another NIC with this one, because it stopped working after a week, works out of the box, after configuring the network settings of the server, I couldn't make the WOL function work because my motherboard maybe didn't support it. Over all it's a good purchase, I did regret buying for a moment but I'm very satisfied with the performance of this card.
freeNAS 8 + freeBSD8.2 good to go

- A bit pricey for what it is and what I use it for
- I exchanged my D-Link for this one since freeBSD refused to load the driver for the D-Link (could just be my limited experience with freeBSD). The Intel card worked like a charm. It's a little on the high side of what I'd like to pay for a PCI NIC, but then again it works.
Does the job, somewhat

- Had to buy this card because my onboard LAN was not compatible with Windows 7. Installed, worked like a charm, good transfer speeds
- After some online gaming, the Internet would slow down to a crawl. Resetting the router did the job, but only happened with this computer, all other wired devices work fine.
- Pretty good for a PCI card, but expected better overall performance from an Intel device on an Intel Mobo.

- Works great with Win XP. I cant fault this card with this version of windows . It worked flawless and faster than onboard networking by far.
- AS PER INTEL website this card will not be updated for drivers for Windows 7 64 bit. It does work on my computer but will not configure gigabit speeds under Win 7 64 bit. Never Has never will . Same is true running WHS. It works but is really noticable when transferring large files.
- Time to invest in an updated NIC that is FULLY supported with respect to drivers if you run Win 7 64 bit.
Problems with static IP and Windows 7 Ultimate

- It worked fine with DHCP (dynamic) IP address,
- Doesn't work with static IP.
- I couldn't get it to work with a pre-assigned IP address. It would work for a while but after a reboot it would forget the default gateway. Web searches showed that this is a common problem and Intel doesn't officially support Win7.

- - Compatable, works with Windows 7 64bit. Didn't even have to install drivers manually.
- - Maybe a little expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for.
- Purchased this card to do away with problems I've been having with a flakey integrated solution. Took a mere few minutes to have my system back up and running again stable.
Uninstalled motherboard network drivers, rebooted and entered BIOS to turn off integrated network ports, turned off computer and installed the Intel card, rebooted the computer and let windows automatically install the drivers for me and connect to my network. No intervention required on my part. Simple.

- Works with all systems. Not sure what other reviewer was doing, but it works well in 2008r2 32 and 64 bit. This is the most compatible card out there and stock drivers work on it. Works great in freebsd.
- buy this card for compatibility if other cards fail.

Not Windows 7 x64/Server 2008 R2 Compatible!

- Says it is compatible with Windows 7 x64 and Server 2008 R2, but DOES NOT WORK. When I used it on the systems, it would install and seem to work correctly, but would not pickup an IP Address from my DHCP server, nor would it work with a static IP. Driver is from CD Only, no updates provided.
- Tested on 2 Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterpise boxes with both DHCP and Static IPs. Neather worked.
Tested on my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with the same results.
Best Nic for home Labs...
