Description
Now you can benefit from the Intel® PRO/1000 MT Desktop Adapters that maximize system performance and increase end-user productivity for mainstream PCs. Next-generation desktops will feature high-bandwidth applications encompassing voice, data, streaming video, video conferencing, and long distance storage area networks that will be hindered by Fast Ethernet technology. Fortunately, most copper networks are running over standard Category-5 cable that supports Gigabit speeds, allowing desktops to realize the full potential of these high bandwidth applications.

disappointing reliability
1 Star Review   By member beefydog - Apr 19, 2007   

Strengths: very fast

Weakness: loses connectivity every now and then for no reason

I bought 4 of these for 4 servers and was very disappointed that one lasted 1 week before ceasing to function and another one has connectivity problems that I traced to the card (eliminating switches and cables). I switched to Broadcom cards and they run perfectly. Intel should stick to CPUs - these cards are a disappointment! Worse, I notice most vendors will not honor refunds on these (I wonder why...).

1Gbit network at glance
4 Star Review   By member npasic - Dec 20, 2006   

Strengths: 1Gbit network speed

Weakness: not for small size desktops

This network adapter should bring your server or desktop to the next level of network speed with astonishing 1000Mbit or 1Gbit speed. It is easy to install into any computer with free PCI slot and software installation is a snap

4 Star Review   By member aaron45 - Nov 30, 2006   

Strengths: I bought the product Intel Pro/1000 MT desktop adapter. It worked good with my desktop no problem at all. I received the shipping fee only 1$ from the website Overstock.com and delivered on time.

Weakness: no

The Product included with the software cd . It got the program quick install guide easy to install for my computer and it worked in just a few minutes. I would like to buy more product from the Intel Corporation again in the future.

GB Adaptor
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Good stable NIC, low CPU utilization

Highly recommend this card to anyone. No problems and Intel has the latest drivers available for download. Must use Cat 5e or Cat 6 for optimal performance. Prices on these cards are low.

PRO100MT on Fileserver
5 Star Review   By member rniedzial - Mar 9, 2006   

Strengths: Great card, easy to install and amazing performance on throughput on my file server. Only limit now is the HD speed.

Weakness: None.

I had an older 10/100 card that I was using in a fileserver box at home, which was causing horrible performance issues. As best as I could tell some sort of ACK collisions, my transfer rates were pitiful. Installed the PRO1000 card and presto, the only bottleneck now is the HD transfer rate. I benchmarked my max throughput at about 820mb/s.

Fast and Furious NIC
5 Star Review   By member alexchre - Feb 1, 2006   

Strengths: Fast, less cpu usage, more bandwidth, room for expansion of network

Weakness: nothing besides using up another pci slot

I upgraded from a crappy microsoft 10/100 card to this one, and even though I have yet to upgrade the rest of the switches on the network, this card has made response on the server a little more "snappy" as you might say. This card is definitely faster than the microsoft card. The installation was very straight forward. No drivers needed to be installed even though intel included a nice network diagnostics suite of software with the card which I haven't tried out yet. I installed the card on an old gateway, 800 MHz Pentium 3, 384 PC133 MB RAM, two HDs 1-300GB and 1-30GB. The motherboard is Intel branded, so I thought the adapter would work without a hitch and it did.

Solid Gigabit card for the price
4 Star Review   By member wsuff - Sep 26, 2005   

Strengths: Price Well known brand Autodetected on both Linux and Windows (2000)

Weakness: None of yet

It is a very solid card. It was highly recommended to me to go Intel versus some of the other brands due to quality. Part of me considered this just to be hype but now that I own their card I see why. It was painless to install and was detected without issue in my systems. Centos and Windows 2000. Over the pass few weeks it has been a great improvement to be able to transfer at up to 1000 Mbits versus the 100Mbit max I had before. Overall latency has also improved so I consider it a wise decision if you transfer alot of files between machines since the great speed increase is terrific. Of course this would me you have your machines connected to a 1000Mbit hub/switch othewise you won't get the speed increase over 100Mbit.

Excellent mid-range card
5 Star Review   By member stalex - Jul 29, 2005   

Strengths: Multiple VLAN support, Jumbo frame support, reasonable price

I decided on this card because of its jumbo frame and multiple VLAN support. Multiple VLAN support allows to use both Jumbo and non-Jumbo VLAN's if you want jumbo frames, but not all devices support it. I have yet to see any issues.

5 Star Review   By member blackcapten - Jun 21, 2005   

Strengths: Fast, bought it for the future, backward compatible to regular networks

Weakness: none thus far

I bought this card to be "future ready" to setup a gigabit home network. Right now I am not maximizing the speed, but hopefully I will upgrade in the future. This would also be great if in the future the internet bandwith coming into everbody's home gets increased. This card would probably be a logical solution to allow computers to access a high speed internet network. Its probably a bit off into the future, but I can start with getting a gigabit home network setup. Another reason I bought this was to replace my on-board networking interface which I find to be not as fast sometimes. The card is extremely easy and if you're a techie there's a lot of little options you can adjust. Intel is known to make good network cards, I have owned other Intel cards as well and they work perfectly, never a problem and they always maximize the speed. Intel is also good about keeping drivers updated, simply visit their site and plug in your model number and download the current driver.

5 Star Review   By member abhijitb1 - Oct 5, 2004   

Strengths: Greatly increased LAN bandwidth

Weakness: None that I care about

My computer is hooked up to a college network, and with my old 10/100 adaptor, the Internet used to be very slow for a T3 connection (about half the speed of an average DSL connection). After I got this Intel Gigabit Adaptor, it's like the top popped off! My computer downloads at screaming speeds now (about 3 times as fast as cable modem). This is because our school is on a gigabit network. I highly recommend using this adaptor if you have a gigabit network (or even if you don't, for future compatibility) because it will auto-detect your network settings and use the highest speed possible. It also has some of the lowest cpu usage I've seen.
