Pros: Low price, ease of installation, support for optical devices.
I received the card from Newegg very quickly, and as per the description and the reviews, it was a minimalist solution, having only the Windows drivers in the box on CD. I was surprised to find that an SATA cable was included, which made it much easier to connect the LG SATA DVD drive I had and an older WD 500 GB SATA hard drive.
It took me a while to figure out which BIOS setting on my PC would give me access to the BIOS setup on the card, but once that was done, everything checked out.
I'm using the card with Xubuntu Linux and had no problems setting the card as primary, booting off of a DVD and the drive, or having the drivers loaded automatically.
