Summary: This card is on the LAN side of my IPfire router and providing approx Gb/s throughput, as advertised. Streaming movies in particular are much better. The router buffers it, and then it's smooth. That's not just because of this part, it's because of the Squid proxy, but this part is doing its, um, part.
Pros: Linux support
Cons: none yet, will contact Newegg if it fails or starts acting up
Summary: I ordered this when the motherboard connection on our desktop went bad. I plugged it in to an open slot, followed the quick installation directions, and within minutes had a working connection with speeds better than what I had with the old motherboard connector.
Summary: No complains, great price, gigabit speed, remote reboot feature (not tested), PCI slot, low profile, compatible with window server 2003, win7 and XP. What else can I say? I transfer a 8GB file across the network at 93MB/s that is the fastest have ever seem my network transfer a file of that size. Very happy with this product. One recommendation use an antistatic risk band when installing, that how I fried my previous network card.
TP-LINK TG-3269 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit PCI Great Value for the Money

Summary: I have a lot of machines that I need to upgrade to Gigabit Ethernet. I was looking for an inexpensive solution. This product fit the bill nicely and did so at a decent price. I could get 5 adapters for what it would cost to buy one elsewhere. This can make a huge difference when planning to do several upgrades. Also, the product is supported out of the box on the Linux Systems I added the cards to.
Summary: I bought over 20 TP LINK NICs over the past month to upgrade my network. Yes I like them, Yes they work, Yes I recommend them. And Yes for the few that may ask, they work for VMwares ESXi hypervisior.
