Pros: Price vs. specs. HD video is smooth
Cons: None so far but I'm not a gamer or video intensive user
Overall Review: I needed a card with two DVI outputs to go to my monitors without adapters. Since Displayport vs. HDMI vs. who knows what will not be settled in the near future this card postponed the issue.

Several degrees cooler
Pros: Fans made the SMART temperatures several degrees cooler then without it
Cons: Some say fans are loud. Since I was expecting to hear the fans when I got them installed I thought, "that's not so bad". Yes you can hear the fans but I can live with it.
Overall Review: Excellent! Driving the SMART temperatures down was exactly what I needed and that is what this product does.
Pros: Linux has native support in most distros although I had to use the "testing" repository for the firmware in Debian 10 Buster. I expect shortly firmware will be in the stable repository. Windows works great too. My 12 year old really likes it.
Overall Review: It really woke up an old twin Xeon HP-z800-Workstation with 24GB of RAM into a gaming PC for my 12 year old. I repurposed the original Nvidia Quadro card elsewhere.
