Low cost adapters are slowly allowing more to increase network speeds for desktop machines. The advantage of 1000 MB/s is very desirable when moving a lot of files from one machine to another.

The new Syba card is passively cooled as the more recent controller is made on a smaller node. This affords more flexibility for storage servers and gaming machines alike. Most NAS units have a slot for a network card and stuffing one of these into the unit can dramatically improve the performance.
