This helps the community to move software forward and to make it even better.

Pro Under active development
Hyper development has basically stalled out.

Even the question was "...for Windows", it's nice if you can use your tools over different platforms.
A lot of things can be easily configured, e.g. color theme, size, window frame behavior, tab location, cursor style, hotkeys, etc.
Pro Excellent interface
At start opens last session terminals. Also has terminal tabs.
Pro Integrated GitBash, Cmd, PowerShell, and WSL

WinSSHTerm is free for anyone to use.
Pro Keyboard shortcuts
Keyboard shortcuts are especially valuable for professionals.
Pro Supports X Server
There is easy, automatic integration with X Server and starts/stops can take place with the launch/exit of WinSSHTerm.
Pro Supports file transfer
The user can start a WinSCP session inside WinSSHTerm, without the need to duplicate the session in WinSCP.
Pro Highly portable
The user can run WinSSHTerm from a USB drive on different computers.
Pro Ready for production use
There are no annoying bugs in WinSSHTerm. Navigation tools and keyboard shortcuts are a great time saver, especially if you have to manage multiple connections.
Con Some functions still fail
It's huge. The amount of resources it consumes is not justifiable.
Con Slow with input lag
Sadly, Electron strikes again. The input lag is noticeable and annoying. Startup also takes like 2 seconds or more (On an i7 from 2016 with SSD).
Con Cannot remove the default profiles
For example, you installed Arch Linux for Windows Subsystem for Linux some time ago, but now you have deleted it and currently use Ubuntu on WSL. After that, if you decide to try this terminal emulator, you'll find Arch there without an option to remove the profiles already included in Terminus.
Con Easy to be confused with different brands of the same or similar name
Like Terminus (Russian production company), Terminus (font) or Termius (SSH client).
Con No multi window support
Can't split tabs into multiple windows.
Con Not a true terminal emulator
It's a PuTTY interface and it's mostly used to access remote machines through ssh, so it may not be very suitable for working on a local machine.
