Features    [ Edit | History ]

The Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter uses auto-negotiation to ensure the adapter runs at the highest available network speed (10, 100, or 1000 Mbps), and it maintains full bandwidth capacity with the dedicated bandwidth of a PCI Express input/output (I/O) bus to provide connectivity you can count on. Based on the low-power Intel 82574L Gigabit Ethernet Controller, this desktop adapter offers optimal performance in a low-cost, low-power, compact profile. Teaming support and an array of other advanced features enable customers to utilize this adapter as an entry-level server adapter as well.

- Works properly with Windows 10. My other network devices did not.
- I am doing a network backup. This card is about 10 times faster than my previous device.
none, so far.
Router and other nodes must be gigabit compatible. otherwise this slows down to 100mbs.

Best name in the game for network cards
low ping times
work nice for virtual machines
bought a few of these along with a new cisco switch for my house. you can team adapters for fault tolerance and load balancing. I would recommend you install the actual Intel driver rather than the one Microsoft will give you.

very small network card
This card is compatible with esxi 6.0, this is for my home server

Fast, Come with low profile bracket, cheap, works well with Linux
I bought a few of these and they all work flawlessly. The package include the low profile bracket to install it in small form factor PC. Works out of the box with Linux (tested with Ubuntu 14.04 and Debian Wheezy).

True gigabit speed, no bottlenecks
Full feature set
Complete indicator LEDs
Low cost
Low profile card, comes with a low-profile bracket
Upgraded from the PCI version of this card (the GT) to this.

Tested speeds with iperf (simultaneous bidirectional test). Speeds went from 309 - 352 Mb/s on the GT to 903 - 934 Mb/s on this. Speed test is extremely stable over 3 tests, looks like a hard limit somewhere.

Though even most enthusiasts will never use them, this card comes with many enterprise-class features - some of which are accessible through its own boot ROM which will come up on boot.

Some manufacturers have started eliminating the LEDs to save cost, but this still uses the familiar activity/link LED (on if linked, blinking during activity) and the 10/100/1000 LED (off on 10 Mbit, green on 100 Mbit and yellow on 1000 Mbit). It's easy to take these for granted.

It's amazing this is as cheap as it is, actually. You can't really do any better until you get into server NICs...and of course the best of those are also made by Intel!

Don't consider anything else.

Cheap, Fast
None as of yet
This adapter gives me significantly faster network transfer speeds than my onboard realtek port. This is great for people who use media PCs or home servers.

works great on my EVGA nforce 780i board, gigabit speeds for a little cash.
kinda ugly...
i bought 2 of these for a vmware server i have been working on building, they work great, fast transfer speeds, great latency, perfect for the job.

low profile
I picked this up to give it a try as i had read that Intel NIC's were supposed to be far superior to the Realtek that came built-in to my motherboard. Honestly, I can't tell the difference. Maybe if I run some more tests but it's not like my internet experience is faster or my downloads are constantly maxed out. I don't have this in a network so maybe the gains are noticed there?

I don't play a lot of online games where the slightest lag can make a twitchy, energy-drink riddled teenager miss-fire their gun in some console ported FPS game, so maybe that's where the real gains are?

Oh well. I have a second NIC in my computer. wheeeeee....

-Performs as well if not better than $100 NICs
-Small so it wont block airflow
I bought this card a few years ago for my brother and later bought one for myself after getting his feedback from it. My brother who plays WoW arenas competitively found his response times and load time felt a lot ore snappier as opposed to using his onboard NIC.

Plug & Play (Windows 7 drivers installed via Windows update), Good-quality construction, 1Gbps, Copper RJ45, Ships w/ both low profile and full height slots/brackets
I've had this for a little over a week now and so far it has performed as expected. No surprise; Intel is an industry leader and manufactures the best NICs in the business.
I bought this on a referral from an Intel sales rep, after a very engaging presentation he gave through which he enumerated the merits of having a good quality NIC. This one uses copper and can accommodate Cat5 cables up to 100 meters in length. It installs into a PCI Express 1.1 lane, for 2.5GT/s.

Ships (OEM) with both low profile and full height slots/brackets.
