5 out of 5 eggsPerfect video card for a workstation

This review is from: PNY VCNVS300X1-PB Quadro NVS 300 512MB DDR3 PCI Express x1 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: I'm using 2 of these inside of a workstation and couldn't be happier. They are powering 4 monitors at 1440x900 each. Realtemp says they don't peak more than 60C, which is pretty cool considering they are passively cooled (heat sink, no fan).

They only take up 1 slot each so room in your case should not be an issue.

512MB at 64-bit of memory is plenty for 2D applications and 2 monitors.

Cons: The video output on the card is some odd display type that resembles a DVI port calld DMS-59 (59 pins). Because of this you MUST use the included pigtail adapter that converts DMS-59 to dual VGA. Kinda lame, but oh well.

Other Thoughts: If your monitor only has HDMI or DVI-D inputs, look elsewhere for a video card. You can convert VGA to DVI-D.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy for Dell PowerEdge

This review is from: PNY VCNVS300X1-PB Quadro NVS 300 512MB DDR3 PCI Express x1 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: Video works awesome in safe-mode.

Cons: I wanted to add a dual monitor card to my Dell Poweredge T100 running Win7 x64. I thought this card would work but I should have done research first. This card did not work and after talking to tech support we came to the conclusion it will not work in my system.

Other Thoughts: If you have a PowerEdge T100 then don't buy. If another PowerEdge then do your research first. There appears to be a lot of forum chatter out there about Nvidia chips giving black screens after windows startup logo so make sure your system will work before wasting your time and money.

Manufacturer Response:

NVS300X1 and Dell PowerEdge T100 in Win7 x64 is require disable integrated video via device manager in windows 7 control panel. Dell BIOS don’t disable integrated video automatic and not option in SBIOS.
Once you install NVS300X1 in Dell T100 & connect display on integrated graphic , now you can open windows control panel -> system -> device manager -> disable integrated video than reboot computer. Computer will boot on NVS 300.

1 out of 5 eggsVideo works, but sound corrupts the system

This review is from: PNY VCNVS300X1-PB Quadro NVS 300 512MB DDR3 PCI Express x1 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: I purchased 10 of these cards because they have the small x1 PCIe connection. The video works and they look great, but for whatever reason PNY decided to add audio to the VIDEO card. Since my MOBO has audio already it causes conflicts and I don't get any audio at all. If I disable the PNY audio in the bios it then sends all the audio to the PC speaker and can't be turned off.

I called tech support and they are USELESS!! Before I even finished my sentence they found out it was an HP desktop and immediately pass the buck by saying call HP. So I call HP and we run test and everything works fine without the card. Put the card back and audio is forced through the PC speaker. I call PNY back and same run around. 2 minutes into the call without ANY troubleshooting or suggestions my answer was "I guess the card is not compatible". Luckily several other companies offer the same card.

Cons: The card works great with video, but I can't keep them due to audio problems that PNY refuses to offer ANY support on.

Other Thoughts: Although I prefer dealing with support in this country sometimes I do prefer getting help from other countries because at least they are willing to try and help you fix an issue. Over paid, lazy Americans unwilling to help is why other countries now support more than 80% of all Tech related companies. Wake up America!

Manufacturer Response:

NVS300X1 has DMS 59 pin to Display port cable option, Display port require to transport video and audio ( digital) via single cable. It is part of display port standard.
You can chose audio driver during driver installation ( custom) – not install audio driver. You can also select audio play back selection in audio section in Win7 control panel.
