2 out of 5 eggsWorked great in Windows 7/8 but not in 8.1 (no support)

Pros: (When it worked) great improvement over my onboard solution, small profile, games no longer lagged severely, reduced CPU usage so I could do other things whilst having network intensive tasks running. pretty much did what a NIC is supposed to do.

Cons: After the Windows 8.1 update was applied the latest drivers for this card were removed and replace with Windows 8.1 default drivers that are over a year old and which I can only assume were made to "just about to get to work". There are no drivers for 8.1 on the Intel website so I was forced to use the Windows drivers, problems include:


stuttering music when internet browsing

system hangs when downloading

high CPU usage when downing or using download clients such as Steam.

capping my download speeds (I'm on 30Mb but only getting the equivalent of 10Mb)

download corruptions and lost connections to servers



I'm not sure who wrote the drivers for this card whether it was Microsoft or Intel but they did a terrible job, it's as if all the workload is being off loaded to the CPU and the NPU is just directing the traffic to the CPU rather than doing the work itself which is not what I paid for a NIC to do.

Other Thoughts: For some reason Intel have decided to continue support for Windows 8 (which is currently diminishing with the adoption of Windows 8.1) and don't even acknowledge driver support for 8.1. I don't understand the logic behind this choice and it's probably going to get to a point when Windows 8 market share is below 1% and Intel are still supporting it whilst 8.1 remains ignored.

when I asked Intel about the lack of support they directed me to Microsoft for help who in turn wanted me to sign up to a premium service for $100 with no guarantee that the driver problem would be solved, typical, capitalist M$ trying to turn me upside down and shake the money out of my pockets. If I had $100 on top of the money spent on the Intel NIC to waste on networking then I would've put the money towards a mobo that had an embedded Killer chip rather than screw around with Intel solutions that take up a PCIe slot and expansion slot, at least Atheros/Qualcomm support Windows 8.1.

Protip Intel; ditch 8, support 8.1

5 out of 5 eggsLove this card!

Pros: MASSIVELY improved my transfer rates.

Old NIC built into my motherboard was 100 mbit NIC and was only getting 12 mb/s transfers, I thought this was ok so I never messed with it.

Now I'm getting 87 mb/s. Copying a 4 gig movie file from MyCloud to my desktop took 55 seconds (yes, I timed it with a stopwatch)
- it is a very small card, you dont need a full sized PCI slot for it.
- very good build quality
- well packaged

Cons: black board would look cooler but otherwise no complaints

Other Thoughts: Make SURE you install the Intel drivers. The windows drivers work (win7) but my transfer speed went from 35 mb/s to 87 mb/s JUST from deleting the native windows 7 drivers and installing the Intel drivers (that you have to download).

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Works great in XenServer 6.2. Using it as my dedicated WAN connection inside of my virtualized pfSense 2.1.2 firewall.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Only had a PCIe 1x slot available and needed a 5th NIC in a Citrix XenServer.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, Debian compatible

Pros: Bought to replace a non functioning mobo ethernet port on a Debian Linux server. Motherboard and Debian installer detected it, and Debian installer had zero trouble using it, no muss, no fuss. Also came with both full and half height backplates, which while unnecessary, was a nice touch. Also came with driver cd, etc. which I had no use for. It worked with Linux out of the box. I am happy.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I spent ~ $35 against returning a mobo with a bad port to NewEgg. Some may argue that was a bad deal, but it wasn't worth the hassle to lose weeks in turnaround, wait for parts, etc. I hope this review helps someone else in my shoes looking for linux compatible hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks out of the box for ESXi 5.5

Pros: I have 2 of these NICs and use them in an ESXi 5.5 build. They work great and work right out of the box without any additional drivers. I'm using them to virtualize pfSense 2.1 and so far everything just works great.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you need a reliable NIC with good performance, i'd highly recommend this. If you need extremely high bandwidth, i'd recommend a pro series but for the money, this is great.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Complaints

Pros: Intel, PnP, simple

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I didn't realize how much a performance drag in-board NIC and poorly written drivers until purchasing server-class motherboard and reading several internet forums including Newegg reviews. Item was designated for HTPC. Download speed was almost six-fold improvement. Best investment in recent memory. No more using onboard NIC on consumer motherboards.
