I paid for one of these back in early April to do a variety of things with that
could benefit from offload.  It was supposed to ship at the end of April.
After ignoring me repeatedly, they promised in August it would ship by the
end of September once they received their Marvell parts.

I pushed them to tell me what date they had been promised Marvell parts, and
they wouldn't say.  At the end of September no boards had been fabricated and
I asked for and received a refund.

I would buy it again as it looks like a nice evaluation platform for a bunch
of things, but for the moment I have no time.

Maybe it's shipping now.

So my use was for an ISP edge (PPPoE BMS).
