Length-wise it's only as long as it needs to be, just reaching the first few pins of the PCIe slot. You can throw this into any spare such slot, even the larger ones that support higher speeds.
There was zero setup in Win 7, Win 10 and Fedora. All detected and enabled the card just fine, and it operated at full speed. You do however get provided with a driver CD for earlier versions of Windows.
Thus far, it's been extremely reliable and has provided great speed across the network. It just sits there and does what it's meant to do; what more can you ask?
The install was quick and easy using the supplied mini-CD, and the only extra I had to do was to stop the old motherboard 100/10 Ethernet socket on the Dell from flagging up disconnection. All the relevant status lights on the local gigabit switches etc now indicate a Gigabit connection, but only after I had replaced one of the installed CAT5 cables.
But I am not getting a 10x increase over the previous 100/10 Ethernet which mostly ran at a solid 100Mbits/s on big file transfers, more like a transfer of 250Mbit/s to/from the RAID and 350Mbits/s to/from the Media Server. I assume the limits include the slow old hard drive in the XP Dell and the old motherboard. More after the upgrade to a faster bigger drive and W7 which will be happening in the next few days.
Other reviewers have suggested it might slow down after a few months. I'll report here if it does so.
Addendum. 19th August 2013.
W7 had no problems with the card being installed, it just worked. The figures above have improved slightly to just under 300Mbits/s with the RAID and 400Mbits/s with the Media Server.
Addendm 2. 13th February 2017
Still working well, no loss in transfer rates at all, and after updating to the latest drivers from TP link it is fractionally faster on 1500 byte packets (biggest standard Ethernet MTU – Maximum Transmission Unit), and now in theory could support up to 9K frames. But I’ve not actually bothered to try a bigger MTU or jumbo frames though because several items on the rest of the network cannot be configured to handle them, and everything must have the same MTU.
