3 out of 5 eggsso so

Pros: Fits the HP Microserver
Its relatively fast
expensive

Cons: works with Windoze but difficult to get it working under Linux.
You have to compile the drivers which can be difficult for noobs.
never did get the HTTP web based management working.

Other Thoughts: the driver download section is difficult to use, you can end up at a web page that has old drivers / manuals
