Card works as intended! *Review revision*

Josh W., Newegg
9 March 2015
  • Summary: Earlier I wrote a review stating that this NIC would not fit in my GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard. While it does in fact not fit in the pci-e x1 slot due to the northbridge cooling, I had completely forgotten about the compatibility with other pci-e slots. Right now the card is quietly doing it's thing a few slots under my GTX 760. Works great in a x8 slot!
  • Pros: It just works.
  • Cons: Only my stupidity.

Incompatible with some motherboards

Josh W., Newegg
9 March 2015
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this as I believe my onboard nic is on it's way out. Looks like I'll have to do my first ever return for a different card.
  • Pros: Price, great reviews, Intel quality.
  • Cons: Sadly this nic does not fit in my Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5. The card hits the NB heatsink. Not docking any eggs for this (5 eggs is perfect and we know that doesn't exist :D ), it's totally my fault in not seeing this first.

Slight price premium for a trusted Intel component. Works great.

  • Summary: A little pricier than some other options, but the premium is still small to get a trusted brand name like Intel.

Bummer that...

TheNum55Guy, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • Summary: This adapter has updated drivers for Windows 8.1 BUT it is not supported by the Intel PROSet for Windows Device Manager, and Advanced Network Services (teaming and VLAN) software. :( Since this adapter only has In-box support not Full support in Windows 8.1 I do not recommend it if you will be installing it on a computer running Windows 8.1. Intel has Full support for this adapter on both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

  • Summary: The price was right and the adapter worked as expected right out of the box. Nothing unusual either good or bad. Plugged into the PCIE X1 slot on the motherboard. When the machine was powered on Windows 7 recognized the adapter and installed the device drivers. I dual boot the machine into Ubuntu Linux and Ubuntu also recognized the device and installed the device drivers. I would expect nothing less from an Intel product.
