Pros: * Runs Linux like a champ.
* Temperatures stay reasonably low.
* Very small form-factor - love this part.

Cons: * None than I'm aware of.

Other Thoughts: I built a 1-foot cube to house these bad-boys. I have a 120mm fan blowing directly at it. My cube can hang 8 of these using the VESA-mounting plate with a fan across from it. I'm using it for rendering Blender animations. At idle, it is around 37 C. After being under full-load for 3 continuous days it peaked out at 73 C. Very satisfied with the heat levels (which was my main concern).

Pros: * Has multiple outputs (HDMI, DVI, D-Sub). One of the last of the dying D-Sub breed.
* Performs well.
* Runs cool.

Cons: * Took me a whole day to figure out how to make Screen-Tearing go away. Finally found a solution that works with any desktop environment running gnome-shell.
* No other cons really. Now that I know how to fix the Screen-Tearing glitch, I have no complaints (so no eggs were docked).

Other Thoughts: To fix the Screen-Tearing issue in any gnome-shell based desktop, add the following to "/etc/environment':

When I found this solution, I was filled with blissful rejoice! Hopefully others will find this solution helpful.
