PowerColor Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 AX5450 1GBK3-SHEV4 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap. Don;t expect much.

Other Thoughts: The card died and I contacted PC about an RMA and they denied it saying the card was past the warranty period. Today I've exchanged 6 emails with them showing the purchase dates (I've bought 2 in the past). The last one I emailed a copy/paste of the invoice and they responded and said they wanted the actual invoice so I printed, scanned and sent as a PDF.

For those who've dealt with PC tech I have to agree that they are a royal pain in the petute and make it hard to purchase from them. Personally I'm offended that they seem to think I'm lying.

HP Desktop PC 8200 Intel Core i3 3.1 GHz 4 GB 250 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good price. Boots reasonably fast.

Cons: At 250gb the hdd is simply too small - uses 2.5" and NO room for 2nd drive

Built-in video is minimal - no room for add-on card

Drivers out of date (ran Slimware Drivers Free to update)

Other Thoughts: Arrived in a box that was partially open. Poor packaging. Unit itself is clearly "worn" on the exterior. Win 7 Pro but needed nearly 250 updates.

MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti DirectX 11 N650TI-1GD5/V1 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent Price

Cons: DOA.

Other Thoughts: I bought and tried to install in two systems. Both black screened and required restore. One system had to be totally reloaded (Win 7).

I sent the card back to MSI at my expense. It took them a couple of weeks to get around to it and today I get an email. They said "We apologize for any inconvenience, but we are currently out of stock of suitable or comparable replacements for your unit(s). In this case we will need to provide you with a refund based on the market value of $113.00 Will you accept this refund?"

I emailed back that I had just paid $130 from Newegg. they emailed back and said they could make an exception and pay me the $130. I then asked them to cover the shipping cost back given the circumstances.

They replied and said no shipping cost coverage. I won't accept without coverage of shipping given the circumstances and the time it took me to fix 2 systems.

I recently bought 2 MSI mITX mobo's and if this is how they handle issues I won't buy MSI again. Given the amount of equipment I buy someone else will benefit.
