4 out of 5 eggsJust what was needed

Pros: Card provided the required performance to reincarnate a low profile computer with video. Low cost made it attractive as well as the included low-profile adapter's for the output jacks.

Cons: Fan looks a little on the cheap side but no real empirical data here.

Other Thoughts: This was to fix someone else's computer, so I don't know if it has survived the month. But in my testing, it allowed me to surf the web. Good enough for their young teen and pre-teen daughters.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card for the price.

Pros: Cheap. This card was a great upgrade for a x1650pro and cost less than $30. The card has many resolutions, it is low profile, and it is quiet.

Cons: This is not as much a con, but I got blue screens when I tried to puch this card on a 720 Flat Screen TV. Come to find out that all of the resolutions listed in the display settings that only half are 720 and the other half are 1080. Not much of a problem unlsess running a blue ray player, then welcome the blue screens until you can find the correct setting. The Geforce GUI helped resolve that issue becasue it states which settings are 720 and 1080.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a cheap card to replace an aging card this is your best bet. If your looking for a card for a blue ray player in an HTPC, make sure to check your system settings as well as your TV settings. Configuration can be tricky if running 720. 1080 should be a smoother process.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap. FAST SHIPPING

Cons: It crashed my whole system, wiped out the mother board and never once worked. I called tech support and there was a man with a mexican accent and a barking dog in the background who told me to uninstall my windows drivers so the computer would look at the PCIExpress card. It did as instructed and lost everything. All I wanted to to was add a second monitor. VERY VERY BAD PRODUCT!! NO TECH SUPPORT

Other Thoughts: RUN!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Graphics Card

Pros: Think its definitely a nice graphics card for the price. I have a client that wanted a new video card to play older games such as Diablo and plays them with no issues! Comes with metal inserts to make a low-profile card.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not bad for price

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked good out of the box.

Cons: After playing 2 nights of Call of Duty 4 on low settings it burned up and Died. I have Rma'ed it and waiting on a replacement.

Other Thoughts: Decent for the price. I would get a better known brand next time. The Sparkle website is under dev and I had to call in to get service. I sent an email and have not heard back and its been 2 weeks.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card, if a little whiny

Pros: Supports VDPAU, so it's absolutely wonderful for media in Linux.
Supported the component breakout cable I got with another Nvidia card from a while back, so my "progressive scan" TV (480p) doesn't look like garbage (480i) (I hate interlaced video).

Cons: A little whiny, but I'm cheap, and the fanless cards that support VDPAU are about twice the price. Maybe I'll replace the heatsink/fan someday...

Other Thoughts: I'm using it in a HTPC box. While I am content, I'm not happy with the noise this thing generates. Don't get me wrong, it's tolerable, but you will notice it when no one's talking on the TV.
