4 out of 5 eggsJust don't plan on video games

Pros: The card has performed according to its specs. It's great to have the flexibility of four displays, in any size up to 30", any orientation; just no real limitations other than four outputs. The card had a very advanced design for its time which is why it is still competitive. For my uses, which is 2D web, document, video and apps, it performs great with no slowdowns. Be wary of the USB based multi head options because they are very compromised performance wise.

Cons: It scores 4.4 on Windows Aero graphics which is pretty slow. It is the slowest piece of my system and this isn't a new system, it's 3 years old. Video games are not really going to happen because you will see frame rates of less than 15 fps even on old games. But for the money you can't complain; the video card makers charge insane amounts for their new current gen 4 head video cards. There's nothing else on the market now at this price that I would prefer.

5 out of 5 eggsdoes what it says on the box

Pros: I bought this as a replacement for a 4-display Matrox G450 card I had that went t its up. I was lucky that I had the displayport to dvi adapters from that card since they weren't included with this one. I have had no problems with Windows Vista and Win 7 driving four DVI displays. Easy to set it up and it has worked well.

Cons: 3D perfmance is pretty abysmal, fine for Aero graphics and that's about it.

Other Thoughts: Overpriced at this point but for some reason the manufacturers all rob you if you want four video outputs. I guess it's all those stock traders ripe for the plucking. A modern GPU with four displays is 500-1000 dollars! I see people have had a hard time getting the cheaper ATI quad card to drive four DVI displays which this one does no problem. I would like to try out those cheap Korean e bay 27" displays but they all require dual-link DVI which this card doesn't seem to do. Ah, first world problems.

1 out of 5 eggsCard seems to have problems

Pros: I use this card to run a 30" (primary port 1) & 2x 24"(port 2 & 4) monitors. One of the 24"s are in portrait mode. It worked great up until today.

Cons: On Monday morning, I woke the computer up to find the main 30" monitor not working and the portrait 24" acting as the primary. Once I shut the computer down, and powered it up, the 30" came back on and was the primary for the BIOS and initial Widows boot sequence. But when the login prompt appeared, the 30" and portrait 24" had switched, with the 30" in portrait mode, and both 24" in landscape. The separate wall papers were switched too. The 30" is now regarded as on port 4, and the portrait 24" is now regarded as port 1. I think that the portrait monitor was originally port 4, but I can't recall.

A Google search found a post on the NVidia forums where others were having this same problem. No one has posted a solution yet. Other posters mentioned that they saw this problem on Monday morning as well, likely after leaving the machine running over the weekend.

Other Thoughts: I use this card at work where we operate under least user privilege settings. So my ability to troubleshoot as been restricted. They have us leave the computers on, and logged out, on the weekends so that they can do maintenance. So turning the machine off is not an option.

5 out of 5 eggsMy PNY Quadro NVS has been running without fail for 5 years

Pros: I own the older PNY Quadro NVS 440 and run 4 monitors with it. It's been working for 5 years now without fail. I use it for financial trading, Forex currency trading and stocks also.

Cons: I can't think of any except that it's maybe a little pricey depending on your viewpoint.

Other Thoughts: Another user review here mentioned the great PNY support and in particular John at PNY. He's right, John is great and has helped me several times with patience and skill when I have messed up my multi-monitor set up with software or OS mistakes that were my own fault.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The card works well so far

Cons: For the price, you think they could have thrown in a few HDMI to DVI adapters

5 out of 5 eggsGreat video card

Pros: After the board correctly configured, It runs great. Great graphics, no noise, and low heat. It supports 4 DVI monitors at 1920 x 1200 (can be higher).
PNY technical support is great.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I hope PNY send more document with the board for configuration. But after call PNY, the technical support help me solved the problem. It's great to get John from PNY to support my setup. Very happy!
Newegg support is also great. Thanks!
