2 years strong
Pros: Ive had 2 of these, one in my wife's pc and one in mine for over 2 years. Not raided or anything fancy, just used as a regular hard disk with windows vista and 7 on them. Have had no issues whatsoever out of them. Excellent drives.
Other Thoughts: Some people will try to make you believe these drives are only for use in RAID arrays. This may be their intended purpose, but they work just fine for every day use. Don't believe everything that you read on the internets by people claiming to have over the top tech knowledge. Most people claiming they have programming level tech knowledge are liars and had no idea what they were doing nor had any business attempting to build their own pc. Take some of these reviews with a grain of salt.

Pros: Low profile for slimline desktops. Standard PCI install and comes with everything you need - no adapters to buy separate
Cons: The ATI Catalyst software can be quirky on some machines and throw an error message from time to time, but I'm not faulting the card for that.
Other Thoughts: You may experience issues with certain computers if their BIOS does not allow the onboard VGA/DVI to be disabled. I have one out of 30 workstations that did this to me and it baffled me for a good while. I ended up having to use the onboard as monitor 1 and then use the VisionTek as montior 2 (and 3 if needed). Just FYI

fix the description
Pros: cant say
Cons: cant say
Other Thoughts: i returned this because it was listed with newegg as a PCI-E card but when i received it i found it to be a standard PCI card. on the flip side newegg is taking it back without any problems.
