Summary: The one I just bought (from this ad, though not from "digitalcpu" unless it changed its name) shipped from Hong Kong (no mention of that in the listing) in an unmarked anti-static box with anonymous software. It has a vanilla slot filler and has no Intel QA stickers, though it does have the Intel logo etched out of the copper on the back and silkscreened over the varnish on the front.

Summary: I was upgrading my network backbone to Gigabit and I needed a PCI card for my 2003 server since the server hardware is older and does not have any PCI-E slots. This card works well. I don't know why other reviewers had trouble finding drivers for this card. I went to the Intel site and found them easily under: Product family Network Connectivity Product line Intel® Desktop Adapters Product name Intel® PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter However, I will say that the "All in one"...
Summary: Have a 10 year old Intel P-4 MB desktop computer with onboard adapter and was running Windows XP.After upgrading OS to Windows 7 could not log on to the internet. The problem was my 4 year old Lynksys router did not see my old netwok adapter. The last upgrade Lynksys made was for Windows XP.Bought this PRO/1000 GT,plugged it in the PCI socket,didn't even have to install the software, and the computer connected to the internet instantly!
Summary: The PWLA8391GT chip on this CCA is, a decade later, still great. Driver support is an obvious, and so is the performance. Consistent throughput with literally no errors, these things can last longer than your actual computer.
Summary: Just like the old days of 10mbps and 100mbps NICs from intel. It just works, no driver download nessesary with windows and many other operating systems and it just works exactly as you'd expect. What else is there to say. Oh right, you get extra options too that allow you to team NICs using things like LACP port channel. It can even include your non-Intel NICs in the etherchannel group in most cases.
Summary: This was easy to install and did not require any drivers for Windows Server 2012 R2. I have a small desktop that I wanted to use as a test bed and it worked perfectly. I have two dedicated Ethernet connections and I am running multiple VMs with Hyper-V. No problems what so ever. Get it!
