Pros: Meet expectations. Works great. No problems.
Surprised by the amount of memory the board supports. Wow.
Cons: Reliable drivers for RealTek Ethernet under non-Windows operating systems can be touchy. This board would be better if it used an Intel Ethernet chip.
Other Thoughts: None.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel E1G42ET Dual Port Server Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 2 x RJ45
Pros: Under FreeBSD 9.0 on a GB MB I am able to achieve 1Gb-10% without effort.

Pros: Large amount of data in a single package. Not fast but not slow. Great for my storage and data manipulation servers.
Cons: I am unsure about the quality of these drives. Under heavy usage, SMART reported an increasing number of uncorrectable errors for one of my three drives (all less than a month old). That drive had increasing uncorrectable error counts and randomly went off-line so I filed a RMA. Another disk has a small number of uncorrectable error counts and I am keeping an eye on it. My drives experience heavy usage under ZFS.
Other Thoughts: Although I believe the drives' quality is a question mark, I have bought two more. I use a fair amount of drives and I am hopeful my experience is an anomaly. I have had trouble with other vendors and models.READ FULL REVIEW
