1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: What can I say it's a low cost video card.

Cons: Purchased the card 12/6/2014 for a workstation that does not need an expensive video card and it had a 20.00 rebate so I ordered it and sent off the rebate the day after I received the card and now its April and no rebate. After looking on the internet I saw many complaints about Power Color not paying rebates claims and when I went to the website it say there is no record of my claim even though they gave me a claim number. I build computers for myself and other small companies and when a company does not honor a rebate I will not order part from them again. If you not going to honor your rebate then don't offer them.

Other Thoughts: One thing I learned from this never include the rebate in the final price if you are building it for some else.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We apologize regarding your experience with the rebate.

If you have not done so already please email rebate@powercolor.com directly.

Thank you,

1 out of 5 eggsAwful company (PowerColor) to deal with

Pros: Price with rebate was good. But see cons.

Cons: Two issues:

1. Poor performance. My 5-year old Dell SFF with a socket 775 CPU has better native performance than this card does. Wanted this as a backup computer I could hook up to a TV and needed the HDMI output. While it worked, the Windows experience score was actually worse with this card.

2. Never did get the rebate even though timely sent and in their system. They ignored my emails. Asked Newegg to intervene, PowerColor finally responded that it was disqualified, but when I asked them to tell me what part of the terms and conditions of the rebate I failed to meet, again, silence.

In the end Newegg did come through where PowerColor failed. Big kudos to Newegg!

Other Thoughts: Cards with better performance are available from other manufacturers for same or less money.

1 out of 5 eggsGet Something Else Other Than This

Pros: It was cheap after rebate if you get it.

Cons: There are plenty of other cards you can buy from other reputable manufactures. If you opt to get this one because of its rebate, my advice is to don't hold your breath for it.

Other Thoughts: Filled out all the papers and mentioned in the rebate form. three months later - nothing. Emailed to find out what's going on, and was told that the rebate form I sent in was for a future purchase date. WTH This was my first rebate that got denied in 10 years!

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Price while on sale and with a rebate
If you want a cheap card for average computing this would be a good one.
Using drivers downloaded from AMD. No problem with W7 64 bit
Works Linux 64 bit "out of the box"

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Using for viewing on a Sony HD TV 720P
For me it does not run hot, using 2 fans in push-pull. But then again I'm only looking at Youtube videos.
Running like a champ for about 5 months.
my next card I get will support 4K.

4 out of 5 eggsPurchased many of these cards over the years from Newegg

Pros: 1.) The Price
2.) 1GB of memory on a value video card
3.) Passive Cooling so no fan will ever go bad
4.) Supports small form factor
5.) The rebates

Cons: 1.) This video card is made for web surfing, word processing, email and general use. It is definitely not a gaming video card but you get what you pay for
2.) Rebates for the most part have been honored but there are always those few exceptions that make no sense even though everything was submitted correctly and on time

Other Thoughts: If you just need a cheap card to do some basic computing then this is a good card. Buy it when the rebates are offered and you cant beat the price! Do not buy this card if you expect it to do gaming. It will play basic games but nothing mid to high end.

1 out of 5 eggsQuit working

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I installed this in a computer, it worked for about an hour, after that it wouldn't display anything. Contacted PowerColor, and they wouldn't do anything unless I payed to get it shipped to their RMA center. I just threw this card away and bought a card from a decent manufacturer. 0/10 would not buy anything from PowerColor.

Other Thoughts: Save yourself time and money and get something else.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We apologize regarding your experience with the video card.

We usually recommend a quick troubleshoot session with our technician (either by email or phone) before sending a card in for RMA. If you have not done so already, please email support.usa@powercolor.com and our technician will help with the troubleshooting.

Thank you,

1 out of 5 eggsquit working

Pros: Cheap -- at least if the rebate comes. Reading the reviews, who knows at this point.

Cons: After getting it in the computer I wanted, it worked, so I sent off for the rebate. Then I moved the computer into a new room, and suddenly I had no connection to the monitor. Odd, I thought. Try a different monitor -- still black. Try the VGA connector rather than DVI -- well, there's something, but the screen is covered in dots, and Windows blue screens complaining of some avi.....dll error. Onboard video works fine. I have neither the time or patience to try it in another computer, nor do I want to spend endless time trying to obtain warranty service from this company or newegg. Get what you pay for, I suppose; though the MSI card I got for about the same price has been just fine.

Other Thoughts: It's frustrating. IT is not my full time employment, but I like tinkering w/ computers. To have things just fail like this, apparently out of the blue, ends up wasting not only my money but my time, and I only have ~30,000 days to live on this planet, you know?

1 out of 5 eggsPowercolor doesnt honor rebates

Pros: Got the product as described by Newegg. Manufacturer does not honor rebate.

Cons: I ordered this with a rebate just to get a cheap card for my daughters computer. received no communication from Powercolor on there end until I contacted them wondering where my rebate was. After a few emails I was informed they denied my rebate request because I had the check mailed to my workplace. As I informed Powercolor I have all my mail sent to my work address because mailboxes get broken into in my neighborhood. Again no communication on there end until I initiated it. They have my email address and personal phone number. They could have used it to contact me. Now I have to find out if newegg will take it back since Powercolor will not honor there rebates. I would appreciate it if newegg would reach out to me on my options to return this product.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We apologize regarding your experience with the rebate.

Unfortunately our rebate policy states that business addresses will not be accepted in submitting or receiving the rebate. Please be sure to read our rebate's terms and conditions.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid little card

Pros: Great sale plus rebate that made the total cost only $6
works well in my old HP A1730 AM2 DDR2 and in both Dell Optiplex, one DDR2 the other DDR3, that I tried. Even over clocked easy to 700mhz core and 450mhz mem without too much heat on a fanless card.

Cons: No HDMI
minimal OC

Other Thoughts: Terrific option for web browsing, light/older gaming, or making a quiet basic home theater machine. Wish I could have a few more at the price I got.

Of the three companies I submitted rebates to (AVG and Cooler Master) after 2 months Powercolor was the only to have honored it, AVG used 3rd party to notify me I was declined.
