Nice card. Simple install

Mike P., Newegg
6 June 2015
  • Summary: Time will tell, but, the boot delay is a bit of a bother.
  • Pros: Intel quality.
  • Cons: Interesting post install process. Card became primary interface and insisted on trying to do network boot. Had to actually plug it into a live port on a switch before it would allow POST. Recognized by Windows 7 and Linux without any fuss or driver search.

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.
  • 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.

Works for Hackintosh.

  • Summary: Other than having to add the PCI Vendor ID to the built-in Intel Ethernet kext, this works well on a Hackintosh.
