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 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: The card runs okay for easy tasks such as web surfing and Microsoft Office utilization. I tried to play what I thought was a graphically undemanding game (Crusader Kings II) and it immediately produced a significant amount of artifacts that required rebooting. I believe the heat sink design is the issue. Its not attached very well.
Summary: We put this in a computer used for recording. Prior card started interferring with the other hardware components. We did have to upgrade the drivers after installing. There are 3 monitors hooked up now and everything is working great!
Summary: I paid $35 for it and it works great as a replacement for the stock integrated card. This card will start to be old soon and if this was another 3-6 months from now I would have looked for something else. It plays what I need it to perfectly. I play an MMO online and can crank up the graphics once this card is installed. Easy to manage as well through the software interface. If you need a high end card then look for something but most games will play fine with this card.
Summary: Needed a better video card than the default Video that came with the Dell Optiplex 745 Small Form Factor PC. The card needed to be not only half height capable but also be thin for side clearance. It also had to run with a sub 300 Watt power supply. HDMI port needed as well, as the PC is setup for use with my Plasma TV. This card fit the bill on all fronts. It brings the Average G3D Mark Video up to a 244 from the built in GMA 3000's almost nil score.
Summary: Bought this card for HTPC build and it works perfect with windows and XBMC. No problems so far, htpc is also a server and is on 24/7. No temp sensor so i cant tell how warm it gets, but thats ok.
