Older ones (and it IS difficult to make sure you're not getting one in
certain places of the world) had hardware problems, which caused lockups for
example.  The driver compensates for this, but it really is a pain on high
packet load.

Also, AFAIK, only the e1000 has enough hardware assistance for one to get
about six of them to cooperate and not lose packets.  This is certainly not
a problem if you're using one or two e100.
