Great Value

Strengths:

- Intel NIC = very good support across platforms - Strong performance - Inexpensive

Weaknesses:

- Not well supported by FreeBSD before version 9.x

Additional Comments:

I use two of these nics in BSD-based servers, pfsense and freebsd. It's poorly supported before FreeBSD 9.X. Current builds of my server applications use FreeBSD 9.x, so it's all good. I long-since have preferred Intel hardware as it seems they prioritize stability over performance, which I value. I've had very rare hardware problems with Intel.

Incompatible with BSD-based OSs

Weaknesses:

Incompatible with BSD-based OSs. I am trying to build a pfSense firewall, and this card isn't compatible with it. It also isn't compatible with Smoothwall or m0n0wall.

Additional Comments:

I'm very surprised that Intel made an ethernet card that isn't compatible with BSD seeing how all common firewall OSs are BSD-based.

Great NIC for everything

Strengths:

I am using this card everywhere. Win7 x64, Proxmox VE (2 NIC's in pairing mode), Win2008 SBS x64. I have tried this card with XenServer. It works flawless and is fast. It is worth every penny and a good investment.

Weaknesses:

None!

Additional Comments:

If you are looking for a great card, that has a good price point, than get this one! Do not waste your money on other brands, Intel is the best.

Works with VMware vSphere 5

Strengths:

Hassle-free installation into VMware ESXi/vSphere 5 Server. Fast card, no nonsense, no d(u)cking around with drivers.

Weaknesses:

None that I have found yet.

Additional Comments:

Drop-In replacement for the built-in NIC on my Asus P5Q Turbo so that I could build a white-box VMware vSphere server out of my older system. Disabled the Onboard Atheros LAN and installed this card. Worked out-of-the box the first time, and seems to be faster than the onboard LAN.
