Pros: It wasnt DOA. Driver installation worked without an issue.
Cons: Very slow performance in Lenovo R500 laptop using the latest Intel drivers. Wireless N negotiated the full 300Mbps connection, but performance was sub-30Mbps (2-3MBs) within 10' of the access point. Product was slower than the Intel 5300 wireless card that it replaced (8-10 MBs consistently).
Other Thoughts: Others seem to be getting good performance from this card. Issue may be related to laptop antenna wires or the model of access point that is being used (AMPED AP). YMMV.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Card is completely silent since there is no fan.
Plays HD video/audio over HDMI with no issues.
HDMI DTS audio pass through works fine to surround sound receiver.
Works with VMware ESXi "pass-through/IOMMU" virtualization.
No issues with current generation catalyst drivers as of this writing.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: If you are looking to virtualize your HTPC (XBMC, etc) then I can confirm this works fine with at least VMware ESXi.
ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 (Confirmed IOMMU support)
AMD FX-8320 Vishera
This review is from: COOLMAX V-600 600W ATX12V version 2.2 Power Supply
Pros: Relatively inexpensive for a 600W. Plenty of connectors.
Cons: Dead after little more than 1 year.
Other Thoughts: Purchased from a retail store. Was installed on a system with minimal power draw that was turned off most of the time. Since it was out of warranty I removed the cover to test the internal fuse, and sure enough it was blown. Replaced the fuse and a diode blew on the next power up. Another part in the PS is causing a short/overload. Not worth the time and money to desolder/replace more parts. Swapped with a PC Power and Cooling 400W. No issues from that so far.READ FULL REVIEW
