Pros: Bought the card to allow me to use three monitors with my work machine. Does the job very well. Installation was trivial, no issues installing drivers or configuring the card.
Card has worked perfectly with the three monitors, and I've got a 4th video port available if I ever have yet another monitor I want to hook up.
As I sit quite close to the computer I also like that it is a fanless design. No troubles with the card running too warm either, I was a little worried about that.
The card is quite tall due to the heat pipes but there are no issues at all fitting it into a standard sized case. My machine is a vanilla HP Z200 and the card has plenty of room between the upper edge of the card and the case.
I run Visual Studios, MS Office apps, and other similar business apps - for which the card works perfectly. I don't use the machine for any gaming at all so have no opinion on how the card would behave there.
Cons: Nothing, really.
Only thing that's close to a con is the card has a variety of video connectors on it. For me the mix was exactly what I needed to support the monitors I have. Someone else may find the selection of connectors less to their liking depending on their needs.
Other Thoughts: Glad I picked this card, the others I looked at I'm sure would have been good cards too, but this was the right card for me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Physically well designed, pluggable design makes for clean builds. Very quiet, cables are long enough to accommodate nearly any build, quality connectors on the cables.
Cons: Too high a failure rate, I've had two identical supplies fail in under two years of operation. On the first failure (after around 9 months) I thought 'well, these things happen, I just drew the short straw this time'. Now the second supply has failed after about the same amount of time.
Other Thoughts: Computer in which the power supply was installed does run 24/7 so it has many hours on it but very few power cycles. Also power to the computer is through a high quality online backup power supply so it should always have had clean AC input.READ FULL REVIEW
