4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good video card. S-video is kinda funky and the adapter they sent with it does not fit at all. Good software, loaded into Windows XP with no problem. Runs a little hot, but very quiet fan. Great buy for the price. Delivered in three days.

Cons: None. Product does what it needs to do.

Other Thoughts: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks on Linux

Pros: I needed a video card that would work with Linux and I took a chance with the Radeon X1550. It works fine with Linux Mint, a Ubuntu derivative.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Worth The Board It's Printed On

Pros: All 4 of them worked for at least one week. We decided to put them in 4 Ultumix TM GNU/Linux computers as an NVIDIA alternative because of problems we've had with Proprietary NVIDIA drivers in the past. ATI seemed to be the way to go and would be if not for the poor design of these cards by Sapphire.

Cons: There is no cooling for the 256 MB RAM. We didn't overclock these cards at all. We Ran Tremulous, Urban Terror, Open Arena, and some other 3D GNU/Linux games on them. One by one the computers smoked and the whole screens turned black. When we opened the computer and touched the cards (after they were off) the memory was so hot it burnt us (lawsuit?) We have one remaining computer that still runs fine with the ATI card in it but we want to try to return them all because we don't want to mess with sapphire any more. We've played enough games with them literally. We have a no smoking policy at our business and these cards can't comply with that so we have to throw them out on the street.

Other Thoughts: What a way to ruin perfectly good chips.

4 out of 5 eggsO.K. For The Price

Pros: If I can actually get it to work in a machine other than an eMachine, I’ll be happy.
I’ll have to pop it into another system…

Cons: Not working in an eMachine

Other Thoughts: Annoying rebate procedure, why can’t they just make things easy!
