5 out of 5 eggsIt even shines your shoes...

Pros: up and running stably for nearly two months now--no complaints.

4 out of 5 eggsAs Advertised

Pros: Wide support; works right out of the box for ESX/i 4.

Cons: Price.

Other Thoughts: For ESX builds, I recommend buying the dual controller Pro 1000 PT flavor. It's not that much more and it's PCI-express.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Dropped it in my ESXi server and it just worked. Fair speeds (as good as you can receive over copper).

Cons: 64 bit PCI-X card hangs over the edge of a 32 bit PCI slot. It's a long card so make sure you have room behind your slot if using a 32 bit slot.

Other Thoughts: Best bang for the buck for a small sever that requires solid bandwidth over a copper connection. I bought one to turn a small shuttle bare-bones (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856101064) into an ESXi server and this card supports it. I would defiantly look for one of these if the need arose to purchase another NIC for a server.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works great. Dependable. Fast. Etc ..

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I puchased this because my basic network card in my system didn't work with VM Ware. This card is one of the few that are supported by VMware ESX Server. If your thinking about VMware this is the card to buy... best bang for the buck.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent NIC

Pros: Intel quality backed by a lifetime warranty. Excellent performance. Stellar drivers with lots of configurability. Comes with a low-profile card bracket.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Installed in Slot 6 (133Mhz PCI-X) of a Dell Poweredge 2600 to replace the dead onboard network interface. It has worked flawlessly from day one.
