One card that is important to compare this card to is Hedge Fund. Say that you have 5 credits and a Hedge Fund, playing that card will allow you to rez an ice that costs 9 instead of the previous 5. If you instead have a Bioroid Efficiency Research instead, you can spend 2 less credits to rez and ice costing whatever you want. This means that the card is only better then Hedge Fund if you rez a piece of ICE costing at least 8, and that is not even counting the downside of the ice possibly getting de-rezed and the lack of flexibility.
This is a list of all bioroid ice costing more then 7: list
Looking at the list, it's currently only 6 cards, some of which are not great. The top contenders for using Bioroid Efficiency Research on now are Janus 1.0, Wotan and Fairchild. Each of these are quite annoying to break, and cost so much that Bioroid Efficiency Research is worth if over other operation economy.
With only 3 really good targets in the entire game, this card is very niche, but might have some place. There are some other support for running these super expensive bioroids, in the form of Sensor Net Activation and Accelerated Beta Test. Scoring either of those makes having several copies of super expensive bioroid ice in the deck a lot better. There is also Howler and Awakening Center, but they don't seem great. Eliza's Toybox is also in faction and have a similar effect.
Lastly Enforcer 1.0 is another card that is difficult to rez, and might give some extra value of Bioroid Efficiency Research, however it's quite difficult to justify rezzing otherwise, making it a dead card in quite a lot of situations.
So this card might make it into a deck some day, and might be worth revisiting when Janus 2.0, Heimdal 3.0, Ichi 3.0 and/or Enforcer 2.0 comes out, or any other super expensive ice comes out.
