Good Dedicated NIC For VM’s, VLAN Tagging Support A Plus, Windows 10 Driver Built-In
Reviewed in the United States on April 28, 2020
I got this network interface card (NIC) to add into my workstation. I run several virtual machines (VM) and I wanted to have a NIC to dedicate to that VM instance. This did that perfectly. Good news is it support VLAN tagging which helps in my environment while the Workstation’s NIC does not. Nice.
NIC cards these days are pretty much a commodity at the low price end of the spectrum. You can get some very nice cards that offload more processing but if you have 8 or more cores how much does that really matter? This unit was nicely packaged with full height back-plate attached but includes a low profile back plate in the box plus screws and even little screwdriver. No driver disk included or needed. Just plug and play in a PCI Express slot.
In my IT practice I occasionally need NIC cards when a built-in NIC has died or for some reason a second NIC is needed. At a low price this gives me everything I expect in a commodity item and more (VLAN tagging). All considered this delivers at a 5 star level and good value in my opinion,
