Great for the price.
Pros: Great price. It greatly increased the graphics rating on my computer and my games don't lag at all any more. I am an MMORPG player so I don't have the highest graphical needs. This isn't a high end card but anyone that can read or do research can figure this out. Unlike the previous reviewer, I don't notice noise on this at all. Perhaps they didn't secure it to the board with the enclosed screws? I am very satisfied with this card.
Cons: My only reason for 4 eggs instead of 5 was that the disc that came with the card didn't work on my computer, nor did the one I downloaded from their site. I almost put my old card back in but decided to try installing through the Windows Device Manager and it was able to load the driver. It is working great for me now that it is installed though.

Loud, So very LOUD
Pros: It works. Basic low end graphics card, not a good HTPC GPU, but if you wanna give a 12 year old something that will run games on a budget that you don't care if they will ruin, this card fits the bill.
Cons: Takes 2 PCI back slots in a computer. (Why? The fan is extra tall.) It is extremely loud, to the point where it is the loudest thing in my entire case. When I am streaming to the TV I have to turn up my television a bunch just to hear it over the fans on this thing, its atrocious and if I didn't already send in for the rebate, I would opt to return it entirely instead.
Other Thoughts: If you don't care about noise level, its fine. It will play basic games seemingly fine and streams, but then again what card can't do that? I originally bought this to go into a different computer but due to the cards innately bad design (really why does it have to be a 2 layer card, its mostly blank space with a gawdy heat sink,) and lack of other mounting solutions I am left with a awkward turtle of a graphics card.
