Summary: Great card with out of the box support for ESXi 5.5. Just built a new home server and was able to disable the Realtek NIC the mainboard came with, and install this card to get ESXi 5.5 running. You can't beat this if you are doing a home ESXi lab.

Summary: Easy install. Original unit came with a low-profile bracket but I contacted the shipper and the mailed a full size bracket out to me very quickly without any hassle. Once installed Windows automatically found the drivers needed.
Summary: Is this card general purpose for all motherboards not limited to proliant? I am looking to use a 4 port gbit nic card to implement lacp 802.3ad to match the throughput of my smart switch, also on 802.4ad lacp. Does this card meet my needs?
Summary: Bought this NIC for my file server to be connected to a large NAS Data Store. It has been super fast once I figured out how to enable the advanced features... Windows recognized the NIC as an HP Server Nic and installed drivers.
