Pros: Works with Windows 2012, price, gigabit connection.
Cons: The only con I have for this adapter is that once the card was seated in the pcie socket the mounting bracket didn't reach the back of the computer case so the slot for the mounting screw didn't line up. I had to bend the bracket a little to get it to line up.

Summary: We received the Intel I350 T2 nic in two days by way of FedEx. The product was in the clear plastic Intel clam shell and that was in a FedEx bubble wrap envelope. The card was brand new and never used.
Summary: Not sure what "Disgruntled" is talking about when he says this adapter is "NOT compatible with DELL." I installed this NIC in a Dell PowerEdge R520 server and had no issues whatsoever.

Pros: Works fine, on my ASRock Z68 Professional Gen3 motherboard. Excellent throughput, ESXi 5.5 installer recognized it without incident, and listed on VMware Hardware Compatibility Guide. Seems to run cool as well.
Cons: None noted thus far, but didn't really try to get I/OAT working yet, although that is not something I currently require.
Summary: Bought two of these to support our iSCSI network traffic on Dell Poweredge R610 servers. After installing the card, the server booted with error "Warning: Performance degraded. CPU and Memory set to minimum frequencies to meet PSU wattage.
Pros: No idea, they never worked
Cons: Apparently incompatible with Dell PowerEdge servers.
