Pros: It fits in my computer, and it probably works well when it works.

Cons: This product uses a Realtek Chipset. Realtek has not released any driver that the tech support at Rosewill could help me locate for this driver that is compatible with windows 8.1. I have somehow found plenty of comments on Newegg claiming this product "works great" with windows 8.1. While the Rosewill techs were nice, they were not knowledgeable. Three separate error codes came up when trying to use this device and install the correct drivers, the techs I talked to had no idea what these errors meant. The best recommendation I got from their support staff was to "Wait until a driver is released." Are you kidding!? So offended am I by the staff of Rosewill and so upset I am at Newegg for not addressing this in anyway in their product information (not to mention the copious unchecked comments of "It works fabulous in 8.1"), that I'm strongly considering turning the currently useless $1500 computer I have sitting at my desk into a doorstop.

Other Thoughts: I do have a return processing, but somehow I'm sure I'll get buttfucked out of shipping cost at the very least. I won't be buying any other Rosewill products for the lack of help I'll get assuming something is wrong with it. I guess it's my fault for assuming Windows 8 supported = 8.1 supported.
