Strengths of the product

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

Weaknesses of the product

- 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

Strengths of the product

Weaknesses of the product

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 of the product

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 of the product

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 of the product

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

Weaknesses of the product

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.
