5 out of 5 eggsWonderful entry card

Pros: Light, small, stays cool, doesn't need a strong power supply, and got it for $15 AR.
Runs just about anything I've seen on it at medium/low settings.

Cons: No complaints here.

Other Thoughts: It's not the strongest card, but this card's been passed around to/between friends looking into jumping into PC gaming just to try out the keyboard/mouse setting.

5 out of 5 eggsGood image quality and quiet

Pros: Silent - no fan. Better image quality than nVidia card it replaced. Plays HD video and Blu-Ray fine. Good for light gaming, too.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Was getting nice image quality with previous card, an nVidia GTX 460. Moved that card into a dedicated gaming PC and installed this Radeon HD4550 in its place. Was surprised to see improved picture quality when watching HD video/movie streamed from Netflix and from Blu-Ray player.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Basic Card

Pros: Multiple outputs
Good card for the price

Cons: None, really

Other Thoughts: My dad wanted a dual-monitor setup on his PC in his office. His work PC is used almost entirely for business applications that are very non-demanding on the GPU. This card fit the bill perfectly and we haven't had any problems with it.

4 out of 5 eggsReview Update

Pros: The card is great for a basic computer that is going to surf the web, watch HD videos or light gaming. The price is right.

Cons: The first one I received was defective and had some pretty nasty burn off smell.

Other Thoughts: I used Gigabyte's RMA service and am happy to say the turn around was pretty quick and they repaired/replaced the card without a hiccup. I will continue to buy Gigabyte products because of it.

1 out of 5 eggsRebate cheaters

Pros: card is OK

Cons: The lying thieves denied my rebate due to the UPC code not being attached and on their own "view documentation" link it shows it is taped to the form! There is no way to respond to their denial form the page.

Other Thoughts: No wonder people complain about getting cheated out of rebates!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Card

Pros: Runs games well. It has all of DVI, VGA, HDMI. It works great and drives my new Asus 21.5 LED screen that I bought recently, beautifully. Plays my old games beautifully.

Cons: It's a 64 bit card. I've been getting an education lately and realize 128 bit bus cards are just plain faster. Add DDR5, faster and more energy efficient.

Other Thoughts: Be Green. Look at the energy consumption out on the net in card comparisons. There are a lot of cards that are even 256 bit that are now becoming EE. Look for DDR4/5, 256 bit and no need for that extra PCI-E connector that might require a PSU upgrade. Heck, buy EE PSUs from NewEgg. I replaced all as they failed with EE bronze or higher from NewEgg.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat in my HTPC

Pros: Fanless/Quiet which is perfect for an HTPC setup. More than enough horsepower to handle what I am throwing at it (Windows Media Center and Hulu connected to a 1080P HDTV).

Cons: None for me. On a wider scale I could see it having limited use for gaming.

Other Thoughts: My old video card was a old GeForce 7000 series and it could not play Hulu without stuttering when connected to my Vizio 47" TV. This card fixed that immediately.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for MediaServer

Pros: Cheep, small frame fits into smaller cases, low heat

Cons: Wouldn't be enough for gaming

Other Thoughts: I am running this on a Server2008 environment. It takes some work to get the ATI drivers installed, but once on the latest version Audio/Video both work through the HDMI. I am using this in a MediaServer running Boxee hooked to my TV and have no issues with heat.

4 out of 5 eggsAdded a Point

Pros: Good, inexpensive card.

This replaced a Gigabyte HD2400 (also from NewEgg) that had exactly the same form factor. It added a point to my Windows "Experience" without costing much money.

I bought it because of performance issues recording multi-channel (Firewire) audio in Vista that seemed to be related to screen updates. Unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem. That took upgrading to Windows 7. Too bad I didn't buy THAT from NewEgg, but I had a recording session and couldn't wait.

Cons: Bad Vista! Bad, bad Vista! If you don't behave I'm going to lock you in the closet while your big brother Seven gets to play!

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Cheap, includes DVI, D-Sub, and HDMI connectors, no fan.

Cons: Not free.

Other Thoughts: Good basic video card, nice performance for the price. I really like the passive cooling, quiet is important.

This actually produced the lowest score (4.9) in the "Windows Experience Index" (whatever that means) of all the components in a new build, but then I skimped on the video card because I don't need much, don't play 3D games at all.
