As for people talking about this being enterprise storage technology. They use fiber for that with expensive fiber switches not Ethernet and not something you'd be able to afford at home.

What's the point of reviewing something like this. In the first part of the review they say "the internet is variable". That's your key right there. There's no point in speeding up your connection to your cable/dsl modem when everything else from here to whatever is unknown. 300 bucks on a card like this and connecting it to your typical linksys router with the new VxWorks firmware with limited number of NAT connections it's about as dumb putting huge spoilers on a ****ty car.

good intel NIC does the same, and doesn't cost that much.

I'm sure this can be optimized in the current NIC's management utility, Intel PRO/1000 GT comes to mind.

However I'm interested to see how this will handle mic/sound over voip services.

btw, you need to update the pic in your sig.

I've used a D-Link DGE-560t ever since my first PCI-E 1x slot that I didn't know what to do with.

Does the card speed up the big gigabit network transfers (keeping a low cpu usage too) ?

It will be interesting to see what this new card can do. It is still expensive (more than double that of a non-server Intel NIC). But at least it's cheaper now than the previous version and have more features.

Whatever it does, I doubt it needs to cost $100+, or even $50+

Afaik it is a processor running a Linux kernel that can accept applications in the RAM memory on the card. Which allows it to run a Firewall and stuff like that on hardware level. That makes it a bit more complex than a normal NIC.
