Pros: Relatively quiet. Not bulky like the 260 GTX it replaced. Has all the connections I need. Worked without a hitch on first install as Nvidia cards usually do.
Cons: None for my applications.
Other Thoughts: I'm streaming live video online (not games though), and so far it hasn't choked once. While processing that video, I've also had dual monitors working at full HD, and still no problems. The card has two DVI outputs that can do analog signal, so I can adapt them to plug in D-sub 15 pin displays, which is what I have. It also has HDMI output, so I could have a third display as long as it has HDMI in. Also, I'm planning to install three Avermedia capture cards, and with my old 260 GTX it would be impossible as it was obstructing one of the PCIe slots. This is working on a Windows 8.1 machine and so far I'm very happy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Capture through HDMI or 15-pin VGA port. Works perfectly with OBS. Video lag is almost unnoticeable.
Cons: Software didn't work so well for me, even after the latest update a few days ago.
Other Thoughts: If you read my earlier review, I mentioned I am capturing video from the second display of a Mac computer into a PC to show keynotes/powerpoints, videos, etc as supporting material for a video stream through Open Broadcast Software. I can use OBS to capture specific windows/programs/capture devices/displays, and the problem was some lag artifact on the bottom of the video when capturing the avermedia recording software window, and it would show on OBS as well, although the problem is independant of OBS. I then decided to ditch that method and capture straight from the card without the recording software. That worked like a charm. I hope it wasn't a fluke and gets messed up later, but with the software it worked smoothly only under certain circumstances, but for the most part, it didn't work well.
Now I'm wondering how well multiple cards on the same PC would work.

Pros: It does what I need it for. Tested it on a computer I have laying around and it works flawlessly.
Cons: None, but I guess if I absolutely had to complain about something, is just that I wish the plastic felt more rugged, but I mean, that's if you force me to demand a complaint.
Other Thoughts: Going to be used in a setup I have to split the video source from a Mac into a set of projectors, and a capture card on a PC using an active splitter so I can broadcast live video/powerpoint presentations exactly as they appear to the audience. I'm really excited to see the results.READ FULL REVIEW
