1 out of 5 eggsPoor design

Pros: Extremely compact, very good general purpose video card when it works.

Cons: Runs extremely hot, very poor heatsink design, will only last you a year or so. Buy only if you're expecting to replace it within a year.

Other Thoughts: This card has a fatal flaw, completely overlooked and ignored by AMD - the heatsink is not up to the task of cooling this board sufficiently. Over time as the heatsink becomes heat soaked, it cannot radiate heat quickly enough and the aluminum will eventually begin to warp. Eventually the warped metal will bend the board itself and the contact patch with the GPU die will decrease. The result is a dead video card within a year or so, rendering this $100 video card nothing more than a doorstop.

What's worse is that AMD refuses to admit their design deficiency. They did release a card with a revised heatsink with cuts/slots running parallel to the card, but the same thing continues to happen. If only there were an NHTSA of computer hardware to force these companies to perform recalls.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Cool

Pros: Runs very cool. I had one of the previous ATI dual fanless cards and it ran so hot you could not touch the heatsink. This one runs very cool.

Cons: None yet. Easy install in Win7. One thing I don't like is all the 'stuff' that the driver installs. Several hundred megs worth. I installed the software this way then dug out the real and necessary driver files from the Windows 7 'Driver Store\Files repository' folder. After restoring the machine with Ghost I then installed only the critical drivers via the Device manager.

2 out of 5 eggsBad design

Pros: Price, features

Cons: Poor heatsink design

Other Thoughts: I've had two of these fail in about 6 months time, out of the 12 we purchased. The replacements have had a different heatsink design to allow parallel airflow to move across the card, rather than perpendicular to the card.. (Heatsink only had perpendicular slots, not parallel). Both cards that have failed thus far have bowed from heat making the heatsink bend outward from the GPU.

AMD won't do anything but replace these one at a time, so avoid them at all costs if you want to deal with RMA at all.

4 out of 5 eggsNice and Quiet

Pros: Nice presentation package, easy install. Tried this type cause fan noise problems with other amd cards. I would leave off the CCC software if you don't need it and just install the driver. Every blue screen error I've encountered recently are CCC related. Easy fix w/ CCC update though were not gamers here.

Cons: Haven't heard anything from my user, so far so good!!

Other Thoughts: Gonna be interesting to see how long these cards last. All things considered!

4 out of 5 eggsMicrosoft Windows Multipoint OS 2011

Pros: Installs easily. Low profile. Very low power requirements < 25 watts. Quiet (no fan.)

Cons: Haven't been able to configure dual head for a projector on Microsoft Multipoint OS 2011.

Other Thoughts: Purchased a Dell R210 server to use for Microsoft Multipoint OS 2011. No one knew including Dell nor Microsoft that this server is incompatible to Multipoint. Also using Plugable's multifunction devices.

Because Dell is still using video technology from 1998, it is incapabable of working with multiple sessions. Also, the PCIE slot would not put out more than 25 watts. This card was a life saver in that after install, Multipoint worked exactly as expected saving the server from becoming an expensive paperweight.

We are successfully running 12 workstations plus the server on Multipoint. The server has a xeon hyperthreaded quad core at 2.93 ghz with 16gb ram. Running 10 workstations on Youtube puts the server at about 90% cpu power.

Note: the Dell R210 only has one slot available meaning that no hardware raid card can be installed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Low Power, No Fan, 3Yr warranty

Cons: DVI Dongle

Other Thoughts: Putting in new PCs. Sandy Bridge will not let us keep any of our existing PCI video cards. Typical PC setup has 4-8 monitors for us (Biz graphics only). Use two of these cards plus on board for 7 monitors. Firepro 2270 x1 works well too. Also FirePro 2460 for 4-Head card.
