Pros: This card, *when it works* delivers great 2D and 3D graphics performance and frees other system resources to run their best. For anyone whose daily work involves graphics, CAD or video editing, this card greatly improves the experience.
Cons: PNY Quadro boards are expensive and they fail sooner and more frequently than customers have a right to expect of a premium product. PNY gives you a guarantees for 3 years. If your board fails within that period and PNY will cheerfully replace the broken board. But the day after that 3 years, when the next failure comes, you will be plum out of luck. The policy goes from "service with a smile" to "tough nuts". At that point, you need to purchase another $1000 board to get back up and running. Potential buyers should check around the internet for user reviews, communities, and help board posts which verify this.
Overall Review: If you can justify the price as a 3-year cost, knowing that the next failure will mean buying another new board, go ahead and purchase this. Otherwise -- if you expect products to last their claimed "long product cycle" and if you don't expect to have to pay out another $1000 every 3 years for a board that becomes worthless when the warranty expires -- then you should look elsewhere. Many manufacturers work with customers for obvious product issues even after warranty. PNY does not.
Pros: Fast boot. Fast program open. Fast photoshop transforms. Fast file downloads. Fast.
Cons: Occasional blue screens from sleep. Not sure whether this is due to the Revo Drive.
Overall Review: Easy install of Win 7 64 on Asus p58D board.
Pros: Connections are solid and drive works.
Cons: Flimsy construction, flexes like a spring. It will not mount with Coolermaster quick-install toolless pins as on their 932 case. Consider other options if this is your case.
Overall Review: Better to spend a few bucks more for a solid tray-type solution, if you need this functionality.
