Works great for what I use it for.
Pros: Quiet - no fan. No heat problems so far. Great price without a rebate hassle. It seems like some video cards can be a pain to get working correctly. I had no issues at all with this. Used to run dual monitors with DVI and HDMI with no problems.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: I don't do gaming, just needed a card capable of HD video and video/graphics editing. This card does the job at a good price.
Pros: Mostly metal, sturdy frame with open construction for ventilation. Great price on sale, purchased for eight dollars with free shipping. Inserting and removing drives feels smooth, don't have to use a lot of force that could damage the mechanism.
Cons: Cable connections on the back might not be the sturdiest.
Overall Review: A good option for those who only need to swap out drives occasionally, might want to spend more if you need one for heavy use. As covered in other reviews, the main things to remember: 1. Use care when connecting the cables to the back of the unit. 2. Don't try to push the drive all the way in, just until it makes contact, then shut the door to seat the drive. 3. Wait until it goes on sale if you can. Seems like it gets greatly discounted fairly often.
Pros: Great price. No fan to add noise.
Cons: Rebates are a pain, as always.
Overall Review: I don't do any gaming, just needed a card capable of running HD video and occasional video editing with Adobe Premiere Elements. It does what I need, no problems so far. Running dual displays with DVI and HDMI worked fine.
