Perfect for your Hackintosh project
Pros: I bought this card solely because it was listed as being a drop in for Mac OSX. As such it works perfectly in both Snow Leopard and Lion.
Cons: $70 is for a GbE network card for a Mac is ridiculous! I got it on sale for $40 and that is still pretty expensive for a network card in this day and age, even for Mac peripherals.
Other Thoughts: The only reason I gave it less than 5 stars is because of the price.

Pros: I don't know if this card is worth the money I paid for it? It's a Generic Marvell Yukon 88E8053 based Ethernet Controller. It is faster than the Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20) that it is replacing. It is a Yukon II card that is a upgrade from other older Yukon controllers. Speed test are about the same as old card but pages load so much faster now. I gave it 4 stars only because of no driver disk and the fact that website drivers froze computer 3 times trying to update drivers.
Cons: No drivers disk included but you don't need them if running Widows 7. Just let it install drivers from windows. SoNNeT web page drivers didn't work and froze up computer trying to install them.
Other Thoughts: Marvell Yukon II 88E8053 based Ethernet Controller. SoNNeT should update drivers on website.
