This review is from: NVidia GeForce 1GB VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express x16 Video graphics Card+Low profile
Pros: Hardware installed easy. The drivers installed easy. I havn't noticed any problems. It feels like video performance is better especially on WMV and MP4 video compared to what I was using.
Cons: I installed this on a Win 7 PC to replace a 256MB graphics card I bought 6 years ago. I was disappointed to see my Windows Experience Index score go from a 4.6 down to a 4.1 after installing this one. Apparently it doesn't support Windows Aero graphics very well.
One minor disappointment is the package shipped with software to support the card. Sadly the rest of the hardware in my PC doesn't support all the cool features in the shipped software. No way of knowing that ahead of time.
Other Thoughts: It was shipped USPS. My local postal dude mis-delivered it so it took an extra week of bouncing around my town before I got it. I frown on companies that ship USPS.
Any hardware that gets those basic pros that I listed right gets 3 stars from me. The 4th start is for value. The Windows Aero performance prevents me from giving a 5th star.
Pros: This is the most beautifaully designed RAM I have ever seen. The gold finished case made me think it was designed by Snoop Dogg. I wish these chips could appear on the outside of the case.
The speed is incredible it produces a 5.9 Windows Vista score.
If you are into Hip-Hop you need these memory chips.
Cons: It's not diamond studded
Other Thoughts: Case and MoBo manufacturers should get together and design components that allow these chips to appear on the outside of the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Draws low power, doesn't require a fan.
Cons: I have this in an HTPC configuration plugged into a Samsung 46" LCD HDTV. When set to the 1080p resolution this card struggles with video as bad as I did running the mile in gym class during high school. Any high quality full screen video at that resolution appears in slow motion. Which I actually appreciate when viewing p*rn (that "feature" actually bumped up its overall rating in my book).
Other Thoughts: Lesson learned, when a card says its max resolution is just above 1920x1080 it means it probably struggles with it. Also, it's Windows Vista graphics rating was only 5.0. Bottom-line... if using 1080p resolution don't buy anything lower than an nVidia 8600GTREAD FULL REVIEW
