Pros: Cheap replacement for when lightning took out the Network Adapter on my wifes mother board. Had bought a wireless adapter (not from Newegg). The wireless version was spotty at best and lead to endless complaints from my loving wife. This card has operated in a flawless fashion since I installed it, and NO driver installation was required. I would defiantly buy again if lightning strikes again.
Summary: Great way to go and inexpensive. My original FIOS package came with a 10/100 router that I replaced with a 10/100/1000 (Gigabit) router. The best way to go would be to get this Gigabit card made for a PCIe bus, but my only PCIe socket is already used for an ATI graphics card. So using this on a PCI bus allows my internet to connect at 1000. I use Linux MInt 17 Cinnamon. http://www.linuxmint.com/ Noticeable speed improvement.
Pros: Works in Linux (Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 32-bit) with no tweaks necessary. I did not use the included CD for any drivers. The machine is an IBM 8133 desktop. dmesg | grep hinted at gigabit working and a simple large file transfer confirmed gigabit speed. I bought this because the IBM 8133's built-in gigabit adapter doesn't support jumbo frames. This TG-3269 is supposed to support them, but I haven't tried it yet.
Summary: I originally got this to run OS X on my hackintosh. ;) It does not work very well with Yosemite so I decided to go back to windows and I then installed the card on my wifi only server to make it hard lined. Although it does not run very fast for file transfers, it runs my Minecraft, Media, VOIP and file server all without a hitch. Great Card!
Pros: It gets the job done. Firm and well built.
Cons: Only 11mb/s file transfer speeds with smb on a Gigabit link.

Summary: The built-in Ethernet connection on the ancient Windows XP computer at work stopped working. MIS wouldn't fix it. This fixed the problem. Should I get their paycheck? :) Nice feature, it included a bracket for small form factor (SFF) computers, I have one of those at home, getting PCI cards for it can be a pain. It arrived with the standard bracket attached, by the way.
great card working the first time without a lot of installation troubles

Summary: The network adapter card worked just as it said it would. it is a good feeling knowing when you order something, that it will work when you receive it. Many times things in my life are held up for waiting for something to work, and it does not, but this time, right on time. Thank you for the assistance in a lightening struck computer, that all was not lost but recovered successfully.
