4 out of 5 eggsJust had to pull it.

Pros: Low price. Worked good.

Cons: Died.

Other Thoughts: Purchased in JAN 2011, for a PC that eventually died later that year. Moved to a new PC and ran just fine until recently. Started getting black screen daily during simple tasks, like surfing or PC gaming (solitaire, minesweeper). Had a good run.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Using in a HTPC that stays in my living room. Adding this took the volume level in the PC from "nice and quiet" to "absolutely silent". Video playback is fine at 1080p for local content. Web content from Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, etc can be iffy.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Card

Pros: I needed a low profile card that was only one slot wide that I could use with Ubuntu Linux so I could run XBMC and X-Plane. This card fits the bill perfectly, Ubuntu was able to recognize the card and download a new driver for it.

Cons: The cable for the VGA plug is too short to install in the slot on the back side of the card, I had to use a DVI to VGA adapter instead, but it works fine that way.

Other Thoughts: Using on a Low Profile OptiPlex PC successfully. Just ordered a second one for another system.

2 out of 5 eggscheap price, cheap card

Pros: cheap

Cons: cheaper

Other Thoughts: buy this card for a very old ms-dos program for company
I got two of this last year, and work perfectly. so I buy another two this year, and it incompitable now!
the old cards still work perfectly, how can the same card incompitalbe?
so I think some one had made it cheaper now

1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT buy for Low Profile OptiPlex PCs

Pros: N/A

Cons: VGA adapter parallel style cable is TOO short for many Low Profile PCs.

Other Thoughts: The parallel style cable that connects the VGA adapter to the board is short. The low profile bracket MUST be on the same side as the header pins (and heat sink). So check the orientation of expansion slots in your PC. If the VGA low profile bracket isn't going to go on the same side of the board as the heat sink, this card isn't going to work for you. I've looked around and the only longer cable I can find is for XFX cards.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome price

Pros: dual monitor, bought this on price - don't need gaming specs.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: just simply amazing to get a good video card for so little money. I just needed a basic card to run a home computer with no games, and this works perfectly.

2 out of 5 eggsJury is still out...

Pros: Low price. Great RMA process (see below)

Cons: Not working so good. Has been flaky on several systems, including artifacting on one and booting only to the Windows 7 splash screen on another. Two stars until I get a working card in hand.

Other Thoughts: Video cards should just work, but DOA's happen and I would never fault MSI unless it's chronic and they ignore the problem. I continue to have faith in MSI products.
