    Pros:

    Sodding brilliant card! I got this to run in my linux box with debian and motion. After a bit of faffing about with kernel module parameters it runs all three of my cameras at full frame rate.

    There have been no problems at all once its working, so I'm really happy with this card.

    Cons:

    I have heard stories of capture cards cooking, so I ordered a pack of http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.15361 for $3.31 and stuck one on each large chip. Hasn't been a problem yet.

    OtherThoughts:

    Don't loose the breakout cable - you couldn't buy it separately.

    Also, I have no idea what would happen if you connected a monitor to the dsub15 connector that was used. Perhaps that was a dumb idea by the card maker. Maybe that sku 17848 would be better - it looks like exactly the same card.

    Bottomline:

    Motion rocks with this card http://www.lavrsen.dk/foswiki/bin/view/Motion

    Zone minder under linux should work too.

    Now to find a respectable CCD camera for that spare input :)
