I purchased this NIC for a spare computer I have. The other computers we have in our office send backups to this PC so the gigbit interface was essential to prevent a reduction in network performance. Vista immediately recognized the card without driver installation and we've been running smoothly ever since.

I was was looking for an inexpensive 10/100/1000 Gigabit PCIe card. This happen to be the least expensive one I could find.

It is being run on a dual boot system Win 7 and Vista Ultimate and works flawlessly. Easy Install, good price. It Works without heartburn, my kind of card!

I bought this NIC due to I have a Dell T05 server which doesn't have support for PCI standard 32bit NIC. Works perfectly in linux (Ubuntu 9.04).

First, for those curious: This is compatible with Vista and Win7 64-bit, Fedora 64-bit, and OpenSolaris 64-bit.

This was the cheapest card on the market, installed easily, and worked with all of my test operating systems. It never quite made it to gigabit speeds, I could never tell for sure if it was the card, the switch, or the other end, but it was always at least 750mbit and that's good enough. Initially it was very stable, I'd have given it a 5-star, but after several months, it just disappeared from my server's Network Connections and I completely lost contact with it. Rebooting didn't help, but cold booting did. When I opened the system to check the seating, I found the card was extremely hot despite adequate case ventilation, especially the capacitors. There is no heat sink on this card, and I believe that in trying to save a few pennies without one they made the card prone to early failure. Since then the disappearance has happened more frequently, at first every other week and now daily, despite increasing the cooling. Unfortunately, I think the card damaged itself, maybe it just isn't made to be on for more than 8 hours a day in an office. Guess I got what I paid for and nothing more.

I bought this card after my on board Ethernet adapter failed. The card was an easy install, even included a mini-mount that I did not need. The only issue I have with the card is that occasionally I have to reset the Ethernet adapter or restart my computer to get a working connection, not sure if this is on the routers fault or the card. Other than the occasional start-up connectivity issue the card works great.

I purchased this StarTech NIC six months ago to use on a Dell XPS 700 Desktop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit in order to setup up a bridged connection for a PBX running on a Vmware virtual machine. I chose the Startech expansion card because it is a Gigabit card and uses a PCI-E x1 interface, which was the only slot available on my Desktop, as the other PCI-E expansion slots are either occupied or inaccessible from running a dual-graphics card setup in my rig. When powering up after initially installing the card, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit recognized the NIC but could not find a driver for the card and suggested to check Windows Update for a driver. Since I also have an integrated NIC on my motherboard, I was able to check for a driver running Windows Update, which found a driver that was also newer than the driver supplied on the product CD. Windows Update has continued to update the driver as available as well. After Windows Update finished, the card was immediately recognized by Windows as a Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC. I then went on to setup a bridged network connection in Vmware for a virtual machine which I use as a PBX. The Vmware virtual network editor recognized the StarTech NIC and I successfully setup the bridged connection for the virtual machine to run the PBX on a dedicated IP address as it requires.

On a subsequent clean installation of Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack One 64-Bit on the same Dell machine, the card was automatically installed during the operating system setup, so it appears the driver is now built-in to Windows 7 Service Pack One.

This Ethernet Lan card works just great in the slot I brought it for. It did not resolve my Software issue I was looking at, but it does not take away that it works just like a LAN card should and the price was withing my predetermined budget. I would purchase StarTech again.

I always worry when I see that it's a StarTech, but there is really no reason to. I keep buying this brand and have not had any issues with it at all. It's a very economical brand to buy and holds up well even in harsh environments.
