    Does anyone here like Killer NICs? Personally I always far prefered Intel, but it's been a few years since I last used a Killer product and they may have improved in the meantime.

    They haven't especially. One of the tech sites had a look at them recently and concluded something like the hardware wasn't anything special, the main advantage was just the software IF you need QoS, which almost no home users do.

    Not a Killer fan either. Fairly useless IMO (have it on my MSI board), plus the software is just more bloatware that pretends to do something. Rather have 2 Intel NICs personally.

    This - I assume Intel still supports GbE adapter teaming? That could actually be useful, at least in theory.
