Summary: I upgraded our home computers from windows 7 to windows 8.1 and also upgraded from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0. The only thing left was to upgrade our network card from 10/100 to 1GB. After much research I decided to go with "TP-Link 32-bit Gigabit PCIE Network Adapter TG-3468", glad I did! Just plugged it in and it worked fine, windows 8.1 automatically installed the drivers and it has been working GREAT!
Summary: This has been the greatest gadget for the money I could have hoped for. I even got it in despite my 2 EVGA GTX 480's they are the true board hogs. Thanks Amazon for having what I needed when I needed it the most. You Guy's Rock, was delivered super fast, have had no issues with it. Definite 5 star rating here. I would recommend this to anyone wanting an inexpensive solution. Also comes with a smaller back-plain for shorter cases. Whoo, hoooo!
Summary: I have a Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboard and it seems to be a common problem that the onboard LAN stops working. Two years of having the board with no problems until recently, I tried all the fixes to no avail. So I looked around and came to this product, it was simple to install with helpful directions and at a great price. I recommend this product.
Summary: We had a Dell machine at work that had its onboard NIC crap out on it. It runs Windows 7 SP1 X64. We needed a cheap, straightforward replacement to the dead NIC and this was the first result that popped up on Amazon. One of the best things about this card was how simple and straightforward the packaging was. It came in a small box, about the size of an old video game cartridge. In it was the warranty info, install instructions, and minidisc driver CD.
Summary: The motherboard NIC in my home server toasted itself. This was a nice upgrade because said mobo had only 100mbit ethernet. Pros: - does it's job - fast - pcie - out-of-the box linux compatibility (tested with debian only, worked immediately with no driver installation) Cons: - limited by PCIe speeds, so you may not see a full gigabit in speed (more than fast enough for me though!
Summary: I bought it cause I needed this item quick! It was for a project for school! I did my research to make sure it fit on the computer, ordered it. It arrived quickly. With my fingers crossed, I installed it. Just hoping nothing went wrong cause I had to do a project! Item works spectacular! I have had it for over a month not and it is flawless! Great buy, great packaging! I do recommended!
