Incomplete order no warranty

Vernon S., Newegg

Higher lantency than HP NC364T

Frederick F., Newegg
14 October 2013
  • Summary: For some reasons, if you plan to drop this in for a pfSense router setup, you'll need to shop something else. This leaves a 4x higher latency than the old HP NC364T NIC (40ms compared to 10ms). It does run much cooler though.
  • Pros: 1. Small footprint, low-profile 2. Runs warm, not hot 3. Intel chip
  • Cons: 1. Higher latency than a 07-era NC364T NIC (at least on pfSense 2.1)

  • Summary: Fast - simple install and inexpensive - would buy again and recomend to anyone!

Amazing NIC

Korrey M., Newegg
23 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for my new home router build and it's a rock solid solution if you need dual gigabit ethernet ports for split networks.
  • Pros: I've been a fan of Super Micro for 13 years now, and not once have their products let me down. The NIC worked on the first try and has native Linux support, which is what I needed for my new router build. So much better than my old Intel PCI-X dual port gigabit NIC. The old card would overheat so...
  • Cons: Super Micro stopped manufacturing their stuff in the USA, and outsourced to Asia.

Two bad cards, poor QC

Justin S., Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Summary: My guess is the second switch powered off because it detected a short circuit at the port, which would also explain why the NIC surface mount component fried. I do not know why it did not fry when connected to the first switch, except possibly that the second switch is PoE capable, while the first...
  • Pros: Probably the lowest priced card available with dual ports and using Intel chipset.
  • Cons: I tried two cards and neither worked correctly. I tested the first card with two different servers (running ESXi 5.0 U1 and Windows Server 2003 R2) and four switches from three manufacturers, including two Cisco 3750Gs. All switches are gigabit capable, and all are managed. The card would pass tr...

Works as expected.

Michael W., Newegg
17 October 2012
  • Summary: I needed a two port NIC to pair with a Supermicro Atom Board with a Single PCI slot. This fit the need. I installed this card with pfsense 1.2.3 on a Supermicro MBD-X7SPE-H-D525-O. All is well and detected out of the box.
  • Pros: True Intel Chips, Supermicro Quality, and a bit cheaper than the Intel branded unit.
  • Cons: None that I've experienced.

Great Card

Linda M., Newegg
26 September 2012
  • Pros: Inexpensive server card based on intel chipsets (not those cheap junk Realtek ones) fast card setup as a 802.11ad LCAP connection and works great.
  • Cons: None so far, works like a champ right out of the box.
