Serves its purpose but not with my TV 08/18/2012
I only have a few blurays capable of making this card struggle and even then it does a fair job.
No TV-Out port (older Nvidia cards had the port and let you connect pretty much any analog cable to it; my 260 GTX has it)
Can't really handle games
Runs a bit hot if air isn't being pulled directly over it
These are all fairly obvious and mostly minor things though.
My Mitsubishi 65" DLP HDTV disappoints me yet again. It has 3 component hookups and 3 HDMI hookups. The 3 HDMI hookups are completely useless when it comes to watching broadcast tv (Satellite and Cable both cause it to randomly and frequently lose signal for entire seconds). There's no practical way to connect the 210 through component. So, I'm pretty much out of luck for getting it to work with my TV.
I can't blame the 210 for my TV being faulty but I still took an egg off for the lack of compatibility with almost anything analog.
I really wish newer cards still included the old TV-Out ports. I'm probably going to end up using my old GTX 260 in my media center, since it does have the TV-Out port.
