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:

MAXIMUS VI EXTREME
SABERTOOTH Z87
Z87-PRO
Z87-PRO(V EDITION)
Z87-PLUS
Z87-PLUS(VivoMouse EDITION)
Z87-A
Z87-A(NFC EXPRESS EDITION)

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.
