5 out of 5 eggsGood Cheap 10Gb for ESXi

Pros: Using for data & iSCSI traffic on ESXi 5.5 servers direct-connected to HP switches. Speed is not an issue with this card. Great for small to mid-size enterprises, cheap enough for desktop use (if you have 50 micron fiber running all over, and who does that?)

Cons: Although this is on the compatibility list at VMware, my DELL media loaded ESXi 5.5 boxes did not have drivers, so I did have to SCP the drivers onto the box & run a manual iinstall/reboot required. If I used Intel, I likely would not have had that problem.

Other Thoughts: I'd buy them again, the downside is, if I upgrade the ESXi version, I will likely have to reinstall the drivers again, All my servers have multiple NICs, so it's not a huge problem, just adds 10 minutes to every upgrade, which is not that frequent. For the money, they are awesome.
