Low-profile bracket short circuits the card
I returned the product as doa. It worked fine for me when attached to the full-profile bracket, or without the bracket. However, i purchased it specifically for the low-profile bracket support. After changing the two screws and installing the short bracket, the card completely ceased to function: no lights for link or activity under esxi 6, windows 10, or unbuntu 14.02.Again, it worked with the full height bracket but not with the low profile bracket. Seller (x-media usa) happily took the card back and issued a full refund. Good interaction with them, but the product didn't suit my needs.
