Hey.

So, I work for Bigfoot Networks who makes the card, but I'll toss up the reviews that I'm aware of:

There should be an AnandTech review, and a few other bigger profile sites coming out with them soonish. In the meantime, Newegg has customer reviews up too:

Other than that, anyone around here picked one up and given it a spin?

It's not worth it. I've red many reviews on the first few models. Most people see some difference, usually only on benchmarks, but it's definitely not worth the price tag.

Complete waste. If you want yourself a good NIC, get an intel pci or pcie one, they can be had for ~$30-40 on newegg, and the ones made by intel are overall possibly the best NIC's you can get. The ones from bigfoot are only really good for gaming, and even then you don't get much of an advantage out of the card.
