Summary: I could care less if item is in commercial packaging or in a zip lock bag as long as the components are complete. These cards are worthless to me w/out pictured low profile bracket. The seller is ServerPartDepot - there is no Intel silk screen anywhere on the PCB. The full height bracket is press-attached to the PCB so that even if a low profile bracket were provided, it could not easily be attached. Extremely dissatisfied.
Summary: I received this NIC today and was surprised to see that it was not in original packaging as indicated by the product picture. It also lacked a very vital component... the low profile bracket. I ordered this card to fit into a Micro-ITX case which requires the use of a low profile card. This is disappointing. The item description specifically states that it is low-profile compatible and includes the bracket.
