Summary: It is completely quiet - sort of a given with no fan. I play absolutely no games, just spreadsheets, Word docs, some mapping and a bit of video editing. It has been satisfactory for all of these. I have experimented with higher quality videos, especially in editing, and it is marginal for this type of work. I also purchased on sale, so the price was really cheap.
Summary: The EVGA GeForce 210 Passive 1024 MB video card works fine when attached to a computer monitor. I dinged-it one star because it had some troubles displaying the full HD-TV (1920x1080 resolution) on a 10 year-old Samsung Plasma TV (it would overscan, so would cut off part of the image around edges, but other video cards displayed correctly on the Samsung Plasma). But that's not where I wanted to use this video card anyway, so I'm satisfied.
Summary: I needed to take advantage of changing the card from a long slot to small slot. It looked very straightforward (and was). However, I wanted to confirm my guess re: changing footprint and height of the card(s). Though it says on outside of box it has this capability/feature, no where in the documentation does it provide directions. After about half hour of searching their website/forums. I was able to confirm my guess and very easily take advantage of the feature.
Pros: VERY easy installation. No need for CD - but did update drivers online once started using.
Cons: Needs instructions to take advantage of promoted feature of card. (see below) otherwise, none.
Summary: Purchased to put in an older system with a dual core AMD Athlon with 8GB DDR2 in August, 2014. I run Linux operating systems only, and the integrated radeon graphics with the AMD processor are awful on Linux. + Works great for HD content, which is why i purchased it. + Silent! + Low temp operation despite passive cooling. + Will run some games (Even Borderlands 2 on lowest settings, minimal lag) + Perfect Linux compatibility with binary nvidia driver.
Summary: For a low cost video card, this card worked great right out of the box and linked with my motherboard without any problems. The driver worked great in Windows 7 and I've been enjoying splitting the video load between the motherboard chipset and this card. I'm running a Gigabyte FM2+ AMD A88 motherboard with an AMD A10 7800 R7 and 32 GB of 2133 DDR RAM. I installed a fan which blows onto the boards heat sink, which seems to help keep it a little cooler.
Summary: I got this for my wife's computer which is about 7 years old so she could play some Steam games. First, if you're wanting something that will let you play AAA games, this isn't even close. However, if your wanting something to improve the overall performance of your desktop for a good price, this is a good option. It works well, a breeze to install, and seems to be quite stable even when working with an AMD chip set.
