The SIIG CN-GP1021-S1 adds a high-speed Gigabit Ethernet port into PCI-Express (PCIe) enabled computers with low profile or standard height chassis. It auto-negotiates intelligently detects and determines 10/100/1000 Mbps and full-/half-duplex, and reduces CPU workloads for enhanced system response and network scalability.
What Is It Really?
Pros: Good price, SIIG is a pretty reliable name.
Cons: Well, this really contains a RealTek chipset - which didn't do me any good 'cause i needed it as a second NIC, and the on-board chip in my PC just happens to be exactly the same as the SIIG (RTL) chip. so it won't work - the same single set of drivers for 2 identical pieces of hardware in the same PC. Wish these brands would disclose whose chip they're using to avoid this trap.

Great X-Box Connection
Pros: I wanted to connect my new XBox 360 without installing a router or wireless hardware, so I connected my Vista 64-bit machine to the Windows Media Center using the built in "Extender." Works great. I needed this board because my cable box took up the only Ethernet port I had on my PC.
Cons: Nothing negative to report.
Other Thoughts: The Ethernet cable is 100 feet long, but the reception is great. I can stream recorded TV to my TV and access all of the files on my PC... like music... no problems
