Pros: This has 3 video outputs and currently running two monitors. It performs well and stays cool with the giant heat sink.
Cons: I purchased this video card for a low profile Lenovo desktop computer and the video card is low profile. But, The back plate that mounts to the computer is NOT low profile. Very few video cards do come with a low profile mount plate. This one did not. It made mounting the card very difficult and there is nothing holding the video card in place other than the electrical slot. I have to support the video connectors from pulling the card out of the electrical slot. By taking the mount plate off I have lost one VGA connector. So running HDMI and digital video connectors
Pros: This unit was very inexpensive for a GPS unit that included traffic alert updates and lifetime maps updates. The unit was actually pretty quick to update maps from a laptop. nThe screen is very nice and wide, and the lane assist works great.
Cons: The unit came with outdated maps and sent us on some wierd road routes rather than the most direct. The unit also had the habit in untimely situations tell me to turn right when it really was a left turn. I updated the unit to the most current maps and most of the wrong way turn info was cured. The traffic alert info was not very acurate. it sometimes kept us on a hwy past the turn that we could have detoured around the traffic.
Overall Review: Overall for the money, it is a good buy, as long as you update the maps immediately before you install in car.
