Summering: I could not get the card to work properly on Windows 8.1 x64. Intel has stated it is only offering "In Box Support" for this card - not full support - which means drivers downloaded from their site will *not* work under Windows 8.1. (Windows 8.0 is okay.) Even manually downloading the drivers and point Windows at them will not work. (Search for "Is my Intel Ethernet Adapter supported in Microsoft Windows 8.1".
Summering: The card itself was fine, the seller was fine - my issue was this card didn't have drivers for Windows 8. So all you Windows 8 users, do your homework on drivers. I had to send it back. Again the seller was fine.

Summering: I purchased this for a Windows Server 2012 build. I did not realize that the onboard intel nic would not install under Windows Server 2012 (due to Intel not supporting it with the drivers that work under server 2012).
Summering: Bought to replace an onboard Realtek network adapter that was intermittently dropping connection in a Dell computer with W7 since upgrade to fibre broadband, fitted in a few minutes but initially could not get it to connect, before I could get it to work I had to manually update to the latest drivers online it then connected straight away and has been stable and reliable since, would recommend as a good upgrade.
Summering: Needed gigabit card to put into an unused PC which I wanted to use as a file server, which meant I also needed a card that supported 9kb jumbo frames, which this one did. Pretty much plug and play on windows 7 and offers a lot of features. Also came with a low profile bracket for those with small form factor machines. Would definitely buy again.
Summering: Aardig snelle netwerkkaart perfect voor mijn Nas. Eenvoudige installatie, online is de driver te downloaden voor windows gebruikers. Via ftp haalde ik snelheden van 12,8MByte = 102,4Mbit aan upload/download. Deze waren vrijwel gelijk. Geen tot weinig drop packages. Erg stabiel met vlag en wimpel door de ping test (snelheid van reactie in ms). Mijn server word gebruikt door 8 mensen tegelijk met een gemiddelde upload van 26,3Mbit pp.
Fördelar: Geschikt voor itx en atx kasten, Snel en weinig drop packages, Makkelijke installatie, Ideaal voor thuis servers en gaming pc's
Summering: When my mother board lan chip started to become flakey, I knew I needed a new Lan card. It took only 5 minutes to install. After I turned on the PC, my Win 7, 64 Bit, AMD CPU found it immediately, and after only 2 min, it installed the corect drivers, and did an automatic setup. It worked PREFECTLY the first time. No problems with transition from onboard Lan chip to a PCI-e add on card. It worked FLAWLESSLY. It's not the cheapest, but it sure is the best.
Wow! Just shows how poor integrated network chips really are!

Summering: It's only when you use a quality network card like this one that you realise just how rubbish the chips built into common mainboards really are. Stunning performance on my switched gigabit network, and a significant increase in throughput and reliability while at the same time reducing CPU overhead for large network file transfers. Impressive all round!
