Summary: I just purchased this HD5450 video card I took it rite out of the box installed it in second's. The software was so simple. Video card performs really well so far. For the price I can't complain. Fits my budget.
Summary: I purchased this card to make an HTPC out of an old Acer X1200. The onboard graphics on the x1200 were not quite up to the task of playing recorded 1080p content with Windows Media Center (WMC), which is my HTPC tool of choice on Windows 7. I had some constraints to work with. 1) The X1200 is a small-format micro-ATX case, which means I needed a low-profile (narrow) card.
Summary: I needed a quiet video card for a pc that is in my recording studio. This card is very Quiet.... No problem to install and set up on Windows 8. I have never been wild about ATI video drivers and AMD hasn't made much of an improvement. The drivers are very feature rich, there are just some glitchy awkward aspects with setting up multiple monitors. It is all up and running with just an occasional hiccup...
Summary: I bought this card few months ago for 35 free S/H and it is still performing well. It does run a bit hot when watching video because there is no fan. Besides that, solid card for streaming. 3 years warranty with Asus, can't go wrong.
Summary: I would advise everyone to buy another brand. It just does not work correctly if at all. I tried it in multiple computers with different results in each all bad. I am not a novice. I started with and apple IIC and worked my way through every IBM compatible version and every windows platform ever made. I built more computers than I ever bought. This card is crap.
Summary: I use both on a daily basis. One is in a Dell GX280 Desktop Computer and the other in a Acer Aspire. The packaging was well done,shipping was fast. And both were easy to install and setup. The price was not bad either. I use these for Netflix and video games with no problems.
Summary: EDIT: I want to begin by saying that Amazon packed and shipped this item just fine. Works okay in a Dell Dimension 8400 P4 3.2ghz hooked to an ACER S230HL monitor, running XP MCE with sp3. (Replaced an ATI X300 128mb card that came with the Dell). Installed easily and so did the driver. Runs cool watching YouTube videos. Can now watch most 720p with no skipping. Have only seen 52c temp so far. (I'm not a gamer).
