This review is from: VisionTek Bigfoot Killer 2100 Gaming Network Card
Pros: Physically the card does what it says when it works, dont expect it to work wonders but I was seeing some all around better pings and more importantly perfectly stable pings in BFBC2. Unless your rig is maxed out you might find that spending the money on a more vital component to be a more gratifying experience performance wise.
Cons: Software package and support is laughable at best, their best response is "try older drivers". The first thing you'll notice is the card repeatedly telling you it's firmware and driver do not match and it will reflash, all will seem fine for a few power cycles but rest assured within a day or two on a cold boot it will give you the same message and then proceed to reflash the card. It's such a problem they even mention it in a popup message following the initial installation but they simply tell you to go to their forums for assistance where they will then tell you to try older drivers witch did nothing for me, the problem keeps coming back regardless of how many fresh formats and installations of windows i tried.
Most importantly, if you own windows blinds or other stardock software do not purchase this card, the software package/drivers fail to function if windows blind is installed on your machine, it's a known problem that tech support will inform you of after you contact them
Other Thoughts: The potential befits of the card soon become outweighed by it's incompatibilities and driver/software package short comings.READ FULL REVIEW
