1 out of 5 eggsdont waste your money

Pros: good price
1 gig of memory
full size or low profile

Cons: low quality

Other Thoughts: I have sent this card back 3 times so far. Getting the manufacture to respond is a challenge and they take forever to repair or replace the card. This last time my pc was down for 2 months waiting for the card to be replaced and when it finally came in the replaced it with a 512 meg one instead of 1 gig. If they would have contacted me and asked if they could replace it with a different card I would have worked with them but instead they choose to rip me off.

3 out of 5 eggsWhy is this still sold?

Pros: Its a decent card, for 2007-2008 games on low settings.
dual monitor.
HDMI.

Cons: completely wothless compared to today's low end offerings that can be had for the same price. Ex. Radeon 6450 is at least twice as good.
I see these at be$tbuy and think why in the hell these are still sold. You couldn't even give me one.

Other Thoughts: Buy a used 8500 GT on eBa-y if your heart is set on getting some low end 8 series card from circa 2007. at least it produces decent frame-rates in COD 4.

1 out of 5 eggswhere were all these reviews before

Pros: Worked for a while...Price, but not the least expensive.

Cons: Stopped working and froze my computer after 9 months of mild use. It was in my workstation and was never used for gaming or movies, only newegg tv and internet use. Just starting to explore possibility of getting it replaced/serviced. we shall see.

Other Thoughts: I don't remember any negative reviews when I first was shopping for an inexpensive video card. If all the reviews now were posted back then I would probably have passed on this purchase. Reviews are a significant aspect, for me, of the decision making process.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Absolutely none at all

Cons: Fan bearings went out after about 6 months of ownership and manufacturer customer service is non-existent

Other Thoughts: I shipped the inferior product back to the manufacturer, they shipped back to me without the correct bracket that I had sent with it. Paid about $10 shipping. Then I had to buy a new bracket kit from newegg for $9.99 because their non-existent customer service never called me back about the bracket. Once I got the new bracket installed it worked for about 2 weeks and the same problem with the fan bearings returned. I will now be purchasing the better video card that I should have in the first place :( BEWARE of this product, spend the extra 10-20 bucks for the better one!

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: None - Unable to use

Cons: Bought this as an upgrade to a mini tower emachines that required Low profile and the bracket included is for a full tower case plus the bracket isn't removable so cannot even buy a smaller one to make it work. Very disappointed this was part of an xmas gift so my daughter could play her new sims 3 game.

Other Thoughts: They really need to state what size the bracket is and if it's something that can be changed in the description especially when they claim low profile because it's obvious most people look for low profile when they have space issues.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: None

Cons: Update: Fan bearings went out after 6 months of ownership, shipped to manufacturer, manufacturer shipped back to me. I don't know if it works yet because they shipped it back to me without the correct bracket to attach to the case, I have one of those slim line type towers, they removed my bracket, attached the regular bracket and failed to include my bracket in the box. The video card was hastily packaged. I called Sparkle support twice and left 2 messages, they still have not returned my calls, it has been 5 days since the first call and 2 days since the second call. Guess I'm gonna order the bracket from newegg today :(

Other Thoughts: I will never ever do business with Sparkle again. Unacceptable product quality, and non-existent customer service

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid

Pros: Worked fine for a few months.

Cons: Fan bearing has went out after less than 5 months of use.

Other Thoughts: If the fan had made it only 1 year, I would have been annoyed, but I would have accepted the "you get what you pay for" attitude. However, to screach and barely turn after about 4 1/2 months is beyond not acceptable. I will not look at a "Sparkle" product of any kind again.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Low price

Cons: Fan bearings went out after 6 months of ownership causing card to overheat and PC to shut down. I am shipping to the manufacturer for repair tomorrow. I am responsible for shipping cost to manufacturer, the manufacturer will pay shipping cost back to me. I will report my experience back as soon as I receive card back

Other Thoughts: I guess you get what you pay for but the company promises a lifetime warranty if you register the product on their website within 30 days of purchase, if not its a 3 year warranty. And that's product lifetime meaning as long as they manufacture it

1 out of 5 eggsCheap but useless

Pros: Cheap

Cons: The driver is not compatible with Windows 7 Ultimate.
called several times the tech support and left message, no response from their side. Never buy these cheapo video cards. I wonder why Newegg sells a product with worst support from manufacturer.
