Pros: NewEgg RMA'd the card with no delays. NewEgg also let me replace it with a different brand. Five eggs for New Egg. Happy customer after 13 years.
Cons: Just idling this card ran so hot I could not touch the heat sink. While loading the drivers, I started to see hash on the screen, then BSOD, then no video.
Other Thoughts: Purchased this video card to try to keep an old PC going with a new widescreen monitor and Win7. At least it did not fry the moboard when it smoked. : )READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SPARKLE GeForce 210 Series GeForce 210 700039 1GB 64-Bit PCI Express x16 Video Card
Pros: Inexpensive upgrade to keep my old PC going with a new widescreen monitor and Windows 7. Compatible as advertised with PCI Express 16. No fan - quiet.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Replaced another more expensive video card which burned up before I had all the drivers loaded. This one also has no fan, but I can leave my hand on it without discomfort.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low power, crisp image, self-alignment with image signal, decent pedestal.
Cons: None so far - it's been plugged in for ten minutes!
Other Thoughts: I was surprised to find the power cord looked more like a phone charger than the expected three-prong 120V cable. It's labelled 19v 1 amp! Oh yeah, this is an LED panel.
Upon power up - the image was incredibly sharp and bright (had to lower it to 75% to make it viewable) - and the monitor automatically detected the video signal and self-aligned - with no input from the user!
I replaced an ASUS 242H that has had intermittent power problems, and was shocked how 'poor' that one is now that I have a 'reference' (this new LG panel). I have two 17" 4:3 LG panels that I bought in 2005...they're still going at grandpa's house. I think LG is a better value for the same price we paid two years ago for the ASUS panel.
