ATI Radeon HD 2400 Video Card
21 August 2009
Summary: After purchasing a blu-ray drive for my desktop computer I found I had to have a better video card for the drive to play Blu-ray movies. After researching all available video cards, I purchased the ATI HD 2400 Pro. The new card works great and was easy to install. It was also the best value price wise compaired to other cards with similar features and specs. Now I can watch all my blu-ray collection on my computer.
Summary: Bought this card for the tv out capability for use with my video editing suite. Thing is, couldn't get the tv to detect the signal from the s-video out. Turns out the VGA and s-video cant be used simultaneously. You have to use DVI and s-video or DVI and VGA. So don't spend hours scouring the internet and downloading drivers like I did to try to get it to work any other way. Good news, DVI/VGA adapter is included in the box, I guess I didn't take the hint.
Summary: Few things to consider when buying this graphic card, it only has 256mb ddr2 and its not as fast as the 2600pros in core speed or memory speed, however for 50$ and with direct x 10 support this card has some serious power, on my system it ran Unreal Tournment 3 with all settings maxed out, and ran it well. You can run Crysis on high but you will suffer quite abit of frame rate loss.
Summary: After checking at your supposed discount stores like Comp USA,Circuit City and Best Buy at over $100.00.i think for my needs 50 bucks was a great deal and after getting some bad tips on installation from manufacturer it turned out fine.
Summary: I purchased this card to hook my media center computer up to my 50" plasma. Although the packaging says HDMI output you have to purchase a DVI to HDMI cable. [...]. In all of the literature it said HDMI with 5.1 audio. When I installed the card it disabled my onboard audio card. I thought the video card would send audio out through the DVI to HDMI cable. It does not. Contacted customer support on December 28th, 2008 and I still haven't heard back from them.
Summary: Before I start... and since someone gave this item such a scathing review... which he felt compelled to cut and paste to numerous websites... let me be clear: It is important to fully research any product before you buy it online. Web vendors usually default to the information provided by the manufacturer's marketing department. Caveat emptor. Any time you buy online. If you purchase something blindly, you get what you deserve.
Summary: product is advertised as a HDMI device and even offered with a 6 ft HDMI to HDMI cable as a pair. However when I actually received item it is in fact a DVMI output, not HDMI as advertised. This means you would have to purcahse a DVMI to HDMI cable, rendering the "pair" totally useless and a false advertised statement. Other than that it is exactly as shown and advertised,howevr this "simple" discrepency is enough to cause concern as to sellers integrity and honesty.
Summary: Beware, there are significant software problems with this card and a few others put out by ATI. I purchased this card several months ago, and although I am satisfied with the hardware,the software is lacking. Since puchase, ATI has released two software updates for this card, but all original problems persist -- screen flickers, and sometimes totally blacks out, requiring system restart. I've read many message boards on this card and found these problems are common.
