Summary: I was looking for an AGP good card and I got this as a present, i thought it didnt have a fan, maybe its not that good, but since I had it, I havent had any problems with it, I even added the TV Guide recently at home, i was able to play my Wii and PS3 on the computer through this beauty, so it is a very good AGP Card, one of the best cards.
Flaky and deteriorating performance, terrible support

Summary: I bought this card a year or so ago and at first it was tolerable -- occasional lockups that required powering the computer on and off, bad sound occasionally, generally slightly buggy software. It was after I decided to upgrade to the latest software that it really fell apart. First, deleting your old software requires you to uninstall at least five programs with add/remove programs, kill a running program with the process manager, search the registry for entries and...
Summary: This is actually a great piece of hardware. I use it in conjunction with the HDTV wonder I have been very happy with both. This is the trick, ATI makes great hardware but horrible software and drivers. This card should be used with BeyondTV, Windows xp Media Center edition, Or the new windows Vista with the Media Center. Do not install the crappy ATI software that comes with the card. If you do you will not be happy.
Summary: I've owned this for over a year now, and I'm completely satisfied. The drivers/tv software come in 1 CD and it takes a while to install, but it is automated, so you don't install a million things yourself. I play BF2142 up to medium settings, schedule TV recordings of all the tennis i've been missing, use Studio 9(included), take out commercials and burn DVD. It has been the golden middle for me, plays games like BF / TV and does not cost a fortune.

Summary: Sounds like a few of you need to get a real computer to put this video card. I have this card installed in my Media Center and has been since November 2005, it has played and recorded TV shows everyday since then. I have my Media Center PC hooked directly into my 32" LCD TV that has a VGA input, the quality of the TV signal is typical analog just as if the cable was plugged into the back of a cable ready tube TV, I have never experienced any skipping or jerking in the...
Summary: The ATI graphics work. I got the TV Tuner to work. However, I am still having with getting the composite signal from my VCR to work. ATI should provide an easier way to connect this graphics card to the VCR or DVD player.
Summary: I opted for this card, because of the advertised "free remote" I paid $ 10 extra for shipping to get the "free remote" I never received the remote - customer service said they tried to deliver, but I wasn't home (excuse me for having to work for a living) and so I'm out the $10 and of course, no remote most disappointing was the indifferent attitude of customer service I'm so sorry I had the audacity to bother them
Summary: I tried this card on 3 different PC with 3 different cases and motherboard and the card did not fit in any of them. The card did not go all the way down into the PCI connectors. Really surprised. Motherboards where around 2 years old. I returned the item.
