Pros: I wouldn't know any pros because the one I received was DOA.
Cons: Blurred screen on BIOS start, blue screen before Windows could start.
Other Thoughts: Newegg is the best!

Good for Dell C521
Pros: Thinner than I believed, and the low profile plate that was included works fine with the low profile chassis of a Dell Dimension C521. Quiet and not too hot. Works prefectly with the latest GPU drivers available directly via NVIDIA (MSI's via the website are outdated, as are those on the included CD-ROM)
Cons: The ribbon cable for the VGA port out is just barely long enough to allow for compatibility with the low profile brackets on one side (right) of the DVI low profile bracket. This turned out to be unnecessary, as I only needed to use the DVI-D out. However, it looked like a potential weakness in working with the existing layout of the PCIe-x16 slot on an older motherboard
Other Thoughts: This was a tremendous value for the money, especially after MSI rebate, for improving on the inadequate integrated graphics (NVIDIA 6150 LE) coulpled with an AMD™ Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core processor on a Dell Dimension C521. After finding that I needed only the DVI-D output to the monitor, and several reboots to install the latest graphic drivers, the monitor is working really well at it's native resolution of 1440x900 pixes, under 32-bit Vista. It's perfectly fine for the basic needs of the desktop machine in which it's installed, for a non-power-user.
