5 out of 5 eggsHigh Performance, works great with FreeBSD/FreeNAS

Pros: Intel server-grade hardware
Consistent, high-speed throughput
Works perfectly in Link Aggregation (LACP) setups in FreeBSD/FreeNAS (9.2.1.7 tested)

Cons: No boot-time firmware/BIOS access/reporting may be an issue for some (not for me).

Other Thoughts: The 'con' listed may not be a con for everyone. The card's features are accessible through management software apparently. Personally I would have liked to have seen at least a 'Hello, everything's fine' BIOS message at boot, but there's nothing. Perhaps that actually IS a feature you can turn on, but we're not running a Windows environment here and thus haven't bothered to try the management software.

For my needs, it's extremely fast and stable in a LACP LAG, and was plug-and-play with FreeBSD 9.x's bundled drivers.

I've yet to have any issue whatsoever with Intel NICs. You get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggsGood board, at least for me.

Pros: Under FreeBSD 9.0 on a GB MB I am able to achieve 1Gb-10% without effort.

Cons: The BSD folks do not yet support larger MTUs.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate: Works with ESXi 5 - But Not in Certain Slots

Pros: Intel

Cons: None so far (other than possibly the issue in Other thoughts -- but I don't know if it's the card's fault or the Supermicro motherboard's fault).

Other Thoughts: Update to my other review (couldn't figure out how to revise it):

This card does work with ESXi 5 using out of the box drivers. It just doesn't work in slot #6 (an x8 slot) on a Supermicro MBD-X9SCM-F-O. After moving it to slot #4 (a x4 slot) it works fine.

3 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work With ESXi 5

Pros: Intel

Cons: Doesn't work with ESXi 5 out of the box, and I've searched high and low unsuccessfully for an add-on driver. Wasted $177!
