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.
Summary: I purchased this card for my free ESXi 6.0 Hypervisor. This card was detected immediately. I am considering purchasing another one for my PC just to have. This card originally cost $500 or more during it's time when it was top of the line.
Summary: Outstanding Device. I coupled this switch with a TP-Link TL-SG2224 Smart Switch and enable LAG/Active LACP. It allows my to have true Teaming and will support large packet sizes. I have four 802.3ad aggregate links on this switch...and it runs great.
