1 out of 5 eggsDefective - poor customer support

Pros: Fanless. Great video quality when it worked.

Cons: During video playback, would get random white horizontal lines in the picture and sometimes the picture would flicker.

Opened a ticket with their customer support. They responded once within a few hours, but only to make sure I had the right drivers installed. I followed their instructions and replied that it didn't help, and 2-3 days later I still haven't heard back from them. Had to return.

4 out of 5 eggsGood video card

Pros: Dual monitors, easy install. Runs Cool.

Cons: I'd rather have 2 dvis or 2 d-subs. It has one of each and a hdmi. The software install is a tad buggy on Xp, but easy to overcome any issues.

Other Thoughts: I got this one to replace my first video card with fan and shroud. It only lasted a year before the fan started hitting its shroud.

I put a dual pci fan under this one and it runs at 94f. That's very cool....and no fan to beat it up. I've had a dual pci fan on my backup computer for 4 years without issue.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: Inexpensive graphics card with no fan which means it is totally silent, just what I was looking for. It doesn't use a lot of power and will play video games with decent settings. The video playback is great for the price too. The giant IBM looking heat sink looks good paired with my motherboard (Gigabyte UD3A990fx) also.

Cons: Not a big deal but sometimes during video playback and occasionally with internet surfing there will be a single and thin horizontal fluid like opaque ribbon on the screen?

Other Thoughts: This is exactly what I was looking for. A fan-less no noise card that plays HD video well, looks cool and can do some gaming. I wanted to buy something on the cheap until buying something like a Sapphire 7750 pcie 3.0 with ddr 5 for a greater price, also with no fan, quiet and a cooler look. I'm tired of my gpu fans crapping out on me because it is so dusty where I am:post dust bowl. Probably will never by a card with a fan ever again as long as they keep making these heat sink monsters. I love these things.

5 out of 5 eggsSilent, Solid performance, Low heat

Pros: Purchased elsewhere , and I am using in an aging HTPC rig. I am now able to play Skyrim (High detail on a 720p television) quite beautifully. WEI went from 4.1 to 6.7 in graphics. Even under load in Starcarft, Skyrim, and L4D2, no noticable heat is generated, so far this card is superb. Also, the heat sink, while long, fits completly in one slot, unlike many passives which overlap adjoining expansion slots. A big plus in an HTPC, where space for expansion slots is at a premium.

Cons: None really, DDR3 as opposed to DDR5 lowers performance quite a bit, but also lowers the power needs, and thus the heat output.

Other Thoughts: At this time, this is a pretty new card, so there is a lack of reviews, which daunted me at first. Don't wait for the next gen of AMD/Nvidia cards as they will offer little advantage over the current generation in terms of performance per watt. Which is the best benchmark for an HTPC card.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks ok for me

Pros: I like the fanless, doesn't appear to get warm to touch. I don't game, can't say I notice an improvent over my prior card ent 240 but am satisfied.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this hoping it would give me access to the pcix slot next to it but it was still too wide. Broke off some of the lower aluminum fins, bought a $5 pci extension cable and was then able to use my pci slot.
