Lasted long enough

Mr. D., Newegg
3 October 2012
  • Pros: For a basic no frills card it did the job in an older build for over 4yrs before finally crapping out. I really can't complain for what I paid back then. Not that this review matters now as it seems it is a discontinued card ;)
  • Cons: None!

Still Running

Mr. D., Newegg

  • Pros: Simple install (as RAM should be!); After over 4yrs of service in my older somputer they're still handling perfectly fine. I'd definitely recommend this!!
  • Cons: None!

Warning - Not what pictured - may not fit in your computer

S. Wilson, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a major headache with this card. As mentioned in the other reviews, the photo of the item is deceiving. Being a silent card, it has a massive heat sink rather than a fan. My problem was with the length of the sink, not its width.

Great Video Card Replacement for nVidia GeForce 8300 OEM Dell card.

Draconis Vedanta, Amazon
15 August 2010
  • Summary: This unit was inexpensive and improved over the original which failed one (1) week out of warranty from Dell and has a history of over-temperature issues. The new 8400 GS card has no fan but sports a very large heat sink.

  • Summary: I had been under the impression that i could link the spdif-in on this card to the spdif-out of my M-Audio Audiophile card, and that didn't work at all. But it does work with the motherboard header specified for just this task.
  • Pros: cheap, silent, one of few 8400gs cards with an spdif-in header for hdmi audio. You CAN push audio through a DVI connector - all you need from the DVI connector to do HDMI w/ audio is single-link DVI-D. Look up the connector pinouts if you don't believe me - there are no special pins for audio. Th...
  • Cons: Does not come with SPDIF cable or a DVI to HDMI adapter, and i needed both of those things. Heatsink completely blocks neighboring slot. I don't have any low-profile systems and just needed to replace another fanless 8400gs card with one that has an audio header, and i would have preferred a full...

Great for an HTPC, but not exactly what is pictured

JoeSchmoh, Amazon

  • Summary: This is an good card that I'm using in an HTPC. It has all the video decoding support needed for this and it can do a decent job with many games. Plus the card has no fan, so you get this in an absolutely silent package.

good price

  • Summary: I would think MSI should know it's own products enough not to allow the heat sink design on their product to cover up the channel 2 SATA port on their own board. (not a big problem if you plug in a 90 degree SATA cable before installing the card)
  • Pros: Installed on a MSI board, worked perfect right out of the box, before any drivers were installed. Runs cool for a fanless, thanks to the 45 square feet of heatsink (joke)
  • Cons: heat sink makes it difficult, if not impossible, to use the neighboring pci slot on some MB's
