This review is from: IBM-Lenovo FRU 04W3919 12.5" WXGA HD SLIM LCD LED Display Screen
Pros: The screw holes for the bezel were present (unlike some knock-offs available.)
Cons: Lenovo says 04W3919 is an IPS screen. Techorbits says you are not buying an IPS screen here.
In addition, they sent me the wrong screen (04W3920) and said they do not have mine in stock -- even though they list it on 2 other sites. Seems like a bate-n-switch to me.
Other Thoughts: They did refund me once I returned it, but it took 4 weeks. They do not pay for return shipping which costs $10-$15.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: VERY cool temps. Very quiet. Runs movies great without stutter. GDDR5, 2Gb memory instead of 1.
Cons: NOT PCIe 3.0. Don't know why they said it was! 64bit instead of 128bit.
Other Thoughts: Replacing a Gt 430 with busted fan. My idle temps are 29c. Highest 37c (when playing live TV in Media Center. My old card used to log 74c when the fan worked.) Also .wtv and 1080p files used to stutter in MPC-HC. Not now, even with madvr. I don't game at all so this is a great card for me. I got a deal, but if you game get the Gt 650 for about the same price.
Tip: Produces better sound than my motherboard (ALC892.) I connected my HDMI to my TV, and then my RCA sound cable from my TV to my 2.1 speakers. Oddly, my sound is MUCH better. I guess it bypasses Windows extra processing of the signal and let's the speakers get the unmolested sound. (I also don't use Realtek drivers, ever.)
Pros: Great card for HTPC
Runs cooler than same EVGA model
Slightly faster than EVGA model - 25GB/s vs 22.4GB/s
Cons: Don't know if anything was fixed on this card but the metal bracket was left bent at a 180 degree angle where it's supposed to be at 90 degrees -- plier marks and all. Doesn't sit straight either. Seller could have corrected this. -1 egg. I'll fix it.
Other Thoughts: I've been using a GT-430 by EVGA for a year or so. Don't need much more since I'm not a gamer so I decided to migrate it to my new system build. Bought this to sell with the old system - Dell Vostro 200. It takes the 300w PSU to its limit but I've never had a problem unless I connect 3 HDD's and try to play a DVD. Removed 1 HDD and the DVD player works.
This card makes the world of difference when trying to run that 1.67gzh cpu. Speeds things up nicely.
