I repurposed an old AMD dual core PC for a freenas box that only had fast ethernet.
I upgraded the onboard fast ethernet with this gigabit ethernet PCI-e NIC. Also, I upgraded my WIFI router to gigabit ethernet. And finally, bumped up the RAM from 4 to 8 GIGs on my main PC which also has gigabit ethernet built into the motherboard. Everything mentioned here is WIRED Gigabit Ethernet.
Wow, what a difference!! This WIRED LAN setup went from laggy and slow to blisteringly fast!
I can rip two DVDs at the same time, and still stream Netflix and surf the web without any lag.
LAN_Speed Test: Before, with fast ethernet, 80 Mb/s; Now, with Gbe, 500 Mb/s.
Highly Recommended !!!
Not a big deal, but, use an ethernet cable with a jack head that does NOT have a BIG plastic grip. I tried to force a jack like that into the plugin port and it was not pretty. I had to switch out cables before I found a jack with a grip small enough that would click ALL THE WAY into the plugin port. I don't know why they do that, cause those grips are more trouble than necessary.
Also, I had to force the PCI-e bracket down a bit before the cable would snap into place. It was kinda frustrating.
Knock off one star.
Don't go cheap. This card is cheap in both ways. It's cost me more to buy this, mess around with trying to get it to work, and it's not even worth paying shipping to get it back to get a refund. If you're looking for a cheap NIC, get one locally for $30-$40 so you have a physical door to knock on...or you risk it like I did. It comes with the territory. Buy at your own risk.
