Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) My original review appears below. Now, 4 months after installing the graphics card I can report that it has totally failed. I would change the rating to a 1, but have been unable to do that. As indicated by the other reviewers, the graphics card is not passively cooled as shown in the description.
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: 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.
Delivered not exactly the item advertised on the Amazon website

Summary: The card I received has a cooling fan on it. Nevertheless, the card shown on the website and the card I wish to buy was supposed to have passive cooling as it's shown on the website. All the documentation accompanying the card is so generic, does not show the exact model of the card, that I'm not sure yet I received EXACTLY what I'd ordered. So, have in mind this discrepancy before you buy if the type of cooling makes difference for you. The card is working, though.
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: 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.
