Pros: I have had a few of these. Solid construction, and just seem to work fine.
Cons: None I am aware of.
Cons: As the title says. I installed with the RocketRaid 622 controller into my Windows 8 system to use as a member of a large storage space. Everything went well for the first hour or so, then the unit disconnected (all drives lost) and one of the four drive healthy lights went out. After discussing with the manufacturer I was advised to return it - it was indicative of a backplane fault.
(Newegg's RMA process is so great!)
My second unit failed within 4 hours with the same condition (different channel).
I am not prepared to go for a third (it costs $12 to return each failed device).
Looking at comments prior to purchase I saw some questions on reliability. I thought I would be OK, often people have problems because of misconfiguration of drivers etc. which I am competent enough to solve, but it looks like the overall manufacturing quality, and/or design, of this unit is flawed.
I will look for a different manufacturer.
As an aside, the eSATA controller worked like a charm out of the box.
Overall Review: Newegg should review carrying this device as a product based on the RMAs.
Pros: It worked the way it said it would.
Cons: Spanned HDMI only, Overscanned monitor
Overall Review: I should have read more, my fault, but I bought this card to run two independent HDMI screens. It will NOT do this, it will create a single spanned screen if you connect two monitors, which is not what I wanted.
Also on my Viewsonic VX2453mh-led monitor I have to set the resolution down from true HD to 1804x1014. Not sure if this is the card or the monitor, to be honest. I don't feel like troubleshooting.
Pros: Just worked. My mother could have set this up because there is nothing to do!
Overall Review: Needs to be plugged directly into wall. Extensions with protection will suppress the signal. (This is true for all units using this technology I believe).
