    I just bought a couple of the IBM branded i340s from eBay. As far as I can tell they're legit. But it sure is becoming a crap shoot buying anything, even from big name retailers like Amazon.

    I would recommend fishing line. And don't pull on the heatsink, twist.

    haha, looks like super faker, PCI ID is belong to Intel i350 PCI ID :p. I bet mac address is a clone or random hex number. the PCI ID is a clone!!

    for example:
    in your system, onboard Intel NIC tell the real truth :D

    when a manufacture needs to sell the product, they have to register their to get unique pci ID

    you can search pci id intel on -> PCI Devices , go to subsystem, go to device ( if available).

    this is an example of realtek NIC on foxconn motherboard

    If you really want to be "put off" buying anything

    Watch this documentary

    The Fake Trade - Top Documentary Films

    It's pretty bad when a company decides to make a new factory in China..... not only to have their products faked.... but when things are that bad they CLONE a Whole "Real Factory".... often right next door.... to pump out the fakes.

    o_O

    I dont want to eats eggs ever again.

    That same seller has many other counterfeit items for sale. It was actually the same seller where my fake i350-T4 came from.

    I guess now we need to keep in mind some OEM brands can't be trusted as well unfortunately.

    Well thanks for letting me know. It looked pretty good except for the embossing. I was seeing stickers regarding complying to canadian regulations and the HP box and stickers, just didn't seem likely to be a counterfeit re-brand.

    sigh.

    Seems to be authentic to me. Even though the images are low resolution, it does seem to have an embossed Delta ethernet transceiver chip. It is used and from a USA seller. And the large inductor has white front on it unlike the counterfeit yellow ones.
