Pros: Reliable on multiple operating systems and hypervisors without an additional driver. Low power consumption. No fan. PCIe x1.
Cons: Not a high-end gaming card.
Other Thoughts: I run a lab at a major tech firm and am frequently asked to bring up prototype or unusual computers. If the built-in video doesn't come up, this is the card I reach for. It works on numerous operating systems, and many of the systems I deal with don't have PCIe x16 (or even x4) available. Stick this into the PCIe x1 slot and magic happens. Once you get video working, it becomes much easier to diagnose and fix the problems preventing the system's on-board video from working.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Koutech Add-On Card Model IO-MPEU230
Pros: I bought 5 to use in a product development lab. 100% of these cards worked fine 100% of the time. Note that this is a mini-PCIe and will not fit in a typical PCIe port. If you have a genuine mini-PCIe port, it is a piece of cake.
Cons: Our software guy tried to install the card driver through Win 7's control panel. Doesn't work. No drivers that way. You need to run the executable on the included CD. It has an NEC chip, so use that installer.
Other Thoughts: Just what I needed. Hard to find. Thanks Newegg!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked fine. Simple replacement.
Cons: Died after 13 months of light use. Very disappointing. A hard drive should really last longer than 13 months.READ FULL REVIEW
