2 out of 5 eggsDid I get a used product?

Pros: -Does what it's supposed to. Works, for now. See cons.

Cons: Everything about the shipping, handling, and delivery was sketchy. This was ordered from Newegg.

-The product box I received was not sealed
-The product box looked like it had been opened before and had the lid jammed back on. Inner wings of box were crushed, not something that should happen if this product was brand new off the factory floor.
-The card itself was not sealed in its antistatic bag.
-The shipping box had absolutely no protective material of any kind, and the label stated it was from CA, while my tracking info mentioned it came from PA.

Other Thoughts: After purchasing from Newegg for the past 5 years, it was really a shame to see such sketchy handling of their products. I would have thought these kind of things from an auction site, not a company like Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsCard works, but you are very limited

Pros: The card works as advertised
Blazing fast speed
You can daisy chain components
Can enable use of Apple Thunderbolt Display

Cons: To use the video, you must connect a big displayport wire from your video card to the Thunderbolt card. This isn't a huge deal, it can just be unsightly if you are going for a single-wire setup from the pc.

It absolutely will not work unless you have one of the following motherboards:


Other Thoughts: I originally purchased the card (and subsequently a compatible motherboard) to be able to connect my Apple Thunderbolt Display to my PC. While the display works fine, I've found that unless you are running PC peripherals, there will be no driver support, so all the added functionality from the display (eg. USB, Brightness, etc) does not work.
