Pros: Easy to install, low profile brackets included, passive cooling.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Installed this in a HP Compaq dc5850 sff with a 240 watt power supply. Card is working very well so far. Installation of the card disabled onboard sound card. Easy fix re-enabled in bios.The card is mostly used for videos and light gaming. It is performing very well.

Doesn't work for all DisplayPort's

Pros: It works.

Cons: It works, but it doesn't work for the pc I purchased it for.

Overall Review: I bought this to use on a HP EliteDesk 800 G3 Mini with DisplayPort 1.2. I get no signal to monitor. However when I plug it into my main rig with DisplayPort 1.4 it works perfectly. I was under the impression that DisplayPort revisions are backwards compatible. I would have given this 5 stars if it had worked for what I intended it for. Revisions really need to be put in the specifications.

Decent monitor for the price.

Pros: Inexpensive 1080p.Easy installation.Price!

Cons: Like others have stated the color is a bit washed out.I don't have as much of an issue with the color.It's the contrast that is horrible.Black/dark areas in movies are terrible.Ive managed to tame the brightness,but the contrast is another story.Games look pretty good on this monitor.It's just movies where this monitor falls short for me.

Overall Review: Overall it's really not a bad monitor....just takes some tinkering with the color/brightness.Good luck with the contrast though.
