4 out of 5 eggs Decent card, tricky install on Win7 03/10/2011

This review is from: AMD FireMV 2260 100-505527 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express x1 Low Profile Workstation Video Card

Pros: Nice display, works perfectly with the two Dell wide screens I have. Added into a system with a 23" main to give me three.

Cons: Difficult installation on Windows 7 64 bit (home). The drivers that come with it are for Vista, and the AMD/ATI site didn't have clear links to the right ones. Loads of errors (including a disabled main display card) until I finally tracked down the proper drivers and told Windows where to look for them though "update drivers".
Another oddity is the "identify" button in the Catalyst application. Labels them 1,2 and 3 (1 is main, 2/3 the ones on this card). If I have 3 on the right in that app, it's actually on the left in reality. Odd stuff, but simple to work around.

Pros: Nice unit, love the sleeved wires and the multiple power connectors for SATA as well as the length of the wires. Made it easy to route where I needed even in a large case. Whisper quiet operation.
Though only cosmetic, the packing in the box was *very* secure, and it was wrapped in a drawstring bag. Weird, but added to the 'warm and fuzzy' feeling when opening it. (I'd prefer the cash it cost instead) ;)

Cons: Was a decent price ($79 with the mail in rebate), but in the time it took to arrive (2 days), the rebate went from $20 down to $10, and from 'money back' to a "rebate card" that is for buying something else instead of actual money back. Nothing more of a scam than rebates in general, and I'd prefer that they simply reduced the price or made it a real rebate (for the full $20) instead.

Pros: Smooth keys, relatively quiet in operation, but not the quietest I've ever used. Worth the cost.

Cons: Bad "printing" of the keys left three or four of them unreadable. When I contacted the company to ask for replacement keys they said they didn't have any. Made me wonder what will happen if the keys wear down like I'd read happens after a while.

Other Thoughts: Given the slightly annoying key issue, I'd have returned it for a new one had I known. Seems petty, but it's not 100%, and it's a relatively costly board to have flaws and defects.
