Summary: I bought this ethernet adapter for setting up pfSense. Everything works great right out of the box. I would look at Intel's ethernet adapter if I were planning to have a permanent setup or if I were looking for the best performance. However, this fulfilled my needs at a great price compared to Intel's ethernet adapter.
Pros: -Cheap when price matched
Cons: -Not as good as Intel's Ethernet adapter performance
Pros: This is a great ethernet adaptor for anyone who has a busted Mobo ethernet port. Great price, Installs fast only takes three minutes, and both Vista and WIndows 7 can detect it without even installing the drivers. Its a must by for anyone in a Ethernet Card crisis.
Pros: I've never liked PCI slot devices. But for once I find a product that doesn't need to be babysitted for drivers and stays up when I need it. I would completely recommend this product to those that have older PCs without LAN, or looking to dual LAN
Cons: I know you're not suppose to crank the screws overly tight but I would feel better that the bracket didn't bend so much when being secured.
