Pros: It is well built and can hold what it claims, if you need to you can tighten the screws on the arms to hold the monitors in position tightly. Nothing like having more than just your old 2 monitor setup.
Cons: The main pole holding it up could be a bit taller but not a problem, and also with 4 27'' lcds it doesnt give you much wiggle room to angle the monitors.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Nippon Labs AD-DPM-HDMIF Displayport Male to HDMI® Female Adapter
Pros: It works fine for Video Audio IF you are only using 2 displays at a time.
Cons: This doesn't advertise if it is a passive or Active converter and it is in fact a passive which sucks in my case. I wanted to support 3 monitors at once but with this it doesn't support a 3rd monitor.
This works fine as a converter but ONLY if you don't want more than 2 monitors working at a time. 2 eggs off for misleading.
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: It worked fine for what i used it for for 1 year..
Cons: It comes default in the Bios as IDE and not AHCI.. WHY? I'll tell you, because AHCI creates errors randomly, when its turned on properly in bios it creates problems with installations corrupting data, even when compressing and compressing files it causes problems.
And i know its not the HDD im using: Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD5000HHTZ 500GB 10000 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s
And we are talking about fresh installs of both win7 and win8 64bit, there was no room for error in these tests.
I then changed it back to IDE and the program i installed many times and failed with AHCI now worked with IDE.
I ran it as IDE for a year not needing the AHCI features but i formatted after changing to AHCI because now i do need AHCI.
I also have corsair 1600 ram that runs at 1333 even when i manually set it in the BIOS to run at 1600MHz it errors and forces it back to 1333 after restart.
This board is trash and doesn't do what it is advertised to be capable of. False advertisement.
Im normally a fan of GIGABYTE but this really let me down..
Other Thoughts: I also have a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 and that board i do trust, the GA-970A-D3 micro-controller must be off with AHCI because it corrupts data at random.. it runs the OS fine but things will corrupt or wont work at random.READ FULL REVIEW
