Summary: Was a good buy 5 years ago when I purchased it and has held me through until now when its time to start looking for an upgrade.
Pros: Solid card. Haven't had any physical issues or defects with it. Fits nicely in my ATX Mid-Tower. Doesn't feel flimsy. Still running after 5 years. Doesn't overheat. Single fan card is not a power hog.
Cons: Experience driver issues from time to time. Keep your drivers updated. After 5 years the dust is starting to get clogged even with regular cleaning. The fan faces down in the case so its difficult to access for cleaning. Power connector sticks out the side towards the case panel so it's a little ...
Summary: I ordered this card almost 2 years after it came out just to see how it performed. and it works flawlessly, my only gripe was that the tracking information was incorrect and the product was in my mailbox days before the site ever told me it was even in my city.
Summary: This HIS Radeon 5770 is an adequate graphics card, graphics card technology fly by so fast that it isn't worth grabbing the highest end card, if you are a gamer, even a mid level card can get you by, if you are not a gamer, this card is already above what you really need for general consumer use.
Summary: After reading some of the horror stories about HIS customer support, I don't think I am going to bother with that. I will gladly put up with the jet engine-esque noise coming from the unit, but now, less than a year later, I am going on the market for another card.
Pros: Good card for what you are paying for. Effortlessly runs most games that I throw at it, including Skyrim on high settings. Doesn't seem to run very hot, either.
Cons: I bought the card almost a year ago now, to throw into a low-end gaming rig that I was building at the time. The whole rig, including the card, ran great until about a month ago, when a really loud fan noise started coming from the computer. I just replaced the case fans about two months ago, and...
Summary: Half of this product worked for a while. It was installed on a new Win 7 system. After installation I began getting Windows 7 Blue Screen with blinking CPU power light every time the screen saver activated. It was a nuisance to have to restart computer.
Summary: Packaged well, on delivery no damage to the package. Card works with legacy X16 PCI Express even though its a X2 product by design. Card is fast for the money and I know this is subjective but it seems as if the picture quality on both games and movies is better than Nvidia products.
