Pros: Sturdy case that can hold up to 4 HDD. Good airflow/cooling. Has replaceable regulated MATX power supply. HDMI output. Great web interface. Jog/shuttle wheel makes searching quick. Has a large bay to install any kind of DVD burner.
Cons: Large size could be a problem if space is tight. Buttons on front panel are a little weak (I pushed too hard and had to take the whole front off to repair it but I fixed it).
Other Thoughts: Wish it recorded at more than 7 frames per second at D1 resolution (720x480 pixels) - must go to model LTD2516HE or LTD2516FD to get Full D1 resolution at 30fps. CIF resolution is 360x420 at 30 FPS and looks good when you play it back through the system monitor. LTS seems like a solid company that will provide firmware updates when necessary.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works well. Fast compared to IDE. Comes with nice NERO and CyberLink software.
Other Thoughts: Dont install the firmware updater program unless you want YET ANOTHER thing loading at every startup and connecting who knows where on the internet reporting who knows what about you to who knows who. Really, how often does a firmware upgrade happen for a burner anyway? If it stops doing what it should after an upgrade you can seek it out then.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low price. Great tech support. Good initial quality. Used this to hook up a 19" LCD monitor on one DVI out and a Sony Bravia 52" KDL52W3000 HDTV on the other using a 30 foot DVI to HDMI conversion cable. Even though they have different native resolutions, this card worked in clone mode despite the fact EVGA tech support said it would only work in Dualview. It might have something to do with setting the TV to "actual pixels" in the aspect ratio choice list (yea Sony!).
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Download drivers from web - brand new one just came out a month or so ago. If replacing another older NVIDIA platform card uninstall old software.READ FULL REVIEW
