Pros desktop management accessories
Cons Sluggish and loses configuration settings at startup
This card is difficult to setup for your display configuration, and loses the configuration when you restart your system. Once you get all four monitors enabled and driven (non-trivial), you must go into Windows display properties settings to get the cursor movement to progress naturally between windows.
The displays have high latency times (time between an event and the time the display gets updated). In addition, in my 2X2 configuration, the mouse cursor changes to the window resize mode in the upper left display for some .NET applications. You cannot put these applications on this monitor.
This card is definitely not ready for release even with the latest drivers. Their tech support is responsive, but unable to compensate for bad design. I recommend you look at alternatives. I will probably not buy another ATI card, and will replace this one when I feel up to spending another $400.
Pros Now I know never to deal with another ATI product. lesson learned
Cons The whole experience was bad start to finish, 2days wasted
Summary This ATI card just plain could not handle a four monitor 20' setup. I Had a problem with the instillation...second stage tech support was hostile and told me it was a defective card. I finally go it to kick in on my own and still had graphic related probs. Tech support again was overtly hostile (second stage) and ignorant as to what to do. Do not waste you time with this card!! Please go with another quad manufacture. These guys blow!
Pros None, it does not work with the Advanced docking station
Cons ATI has determined that Levono has a problem with BIOS
Summary I have been trying to get ATI and Levono to fix a problem with the Thinkpad BIOS for 2 months. ATI has determined that the Thinkpad BIOS does not have enough "extra space".
DO NOT BUY this if you have a Thinkpad T60p!!!
From the ATI support: After further testing, it was determined that this issue is a result of a lock of option ROM apace that is reserved by the BIOS of the notebook and not a result of a problem in the video cards BIOS.
The last conversation I had with IBM indicated that Levono needed to fix this (SOMEDAY). I have spent about $4000 to get a system that will support 4 video units, and have yet to be able to achieve that goal.
