Pros: This a great card and I really regret not having read the fine print. To those that read this, please do your reading. I took advantage of the rebate offer after installing the card and began using my new card. The display ports all worked as they should. There a 4 display ports and two DVI ports. Upon adding another DVI monitor to the card that is when my problems began. The port did not work. Moved to the next port and all was ok. I then decided to get the card replaced with one that had all functional ports.
I have found that after sending for the rebate, the option for RMA is no longer available. Sounds a little deceptive to me. Newegg sent an E Mail telling me that I should make sure the card works before sending in the rebate form. It seems to me that the manufacturer should see that the product is fully funtional. Oh well! Read the fine print. I am still looking for that fine print. Good luck!

Cons: The only con I have is the rebate process. Do not take advantage of the rebate offer! I did and am not a happy camper! Not sure what to do with this great card that I received with a faulty DVI port. The DP ports are ok. Did not find out the DVI port was bad until after I sent in for my rebate. This requires removing the UPC code lable from the box. I was told to make sure my product works before taking advantage of the rebate offer. Newegg was polite, but not helpful.

Other Thoughts: Why are rebates so deceptive? Should be a better way to achieve the same results without navigating through a mine field! Live and learn.
