Good deal!

Jason H., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Remember to sign and date your rebate application before you mail it.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Windows 8.1 drivers are available, very compatible. We used this one to add a video card to an older Asus motherboard with integrated video for which Windows 8.1 did not have a driver available - this card did the trick and enabled us to avoid having to buy a new motherboard & CPU.
  • Cons: Card is somewhat slow and has an older GPU. Mail in rebate takes a while - I received the rebate card 37 days after mailing the rebate materials. I've had good luck with this rebate processor: 'Rebate Processing' (4myrebate) in El Paso,TX ~ 30-45 days to receive the rebate vs the other rebate com...

Bad Rebate service

Kenneth K., Newegg

  • Summary: Good budget card but plan to pay the full price it seems impossible to get the rebate they promise.
  • Pros: Got the GPU and it works as expected. Budget card with 1gb ram does the job
  • Cons: Don't count on getting the rebate I sent in all the documentation but my rebate was declined. They sent me a link to what I sent in and it was all there but it says receipt missing but I printed it from my slice account that tracks all my parches and keeps copies of the receipts.

Rebate Scam

darryl l., Newegg
12 June 2015
  • Pros: Functions.
  • Cons: I knew the rebate would be denied. They use the same scam-artists that every tech hardware company uses, down there in El-Paso TX. Somehow the Invoice I attached magically disappeared. I even took pictures of everything I put in the envelope with my phone. Total Scam.

User Review

Steven H., Newegg
14 April 2015
  • Summary: One thing I learned from this never include the rebate in the final price if you are building it for some else.
  • Pros: What can I say it's a low cost video card.
  • Cons: Purchased the card 12/6/2014 for a workstation that does not need an expensive video card and it had a 20.00 rebate so I ordered it and sent off the rebate the day after I received the card and now its April and no rebate. After looking on the internet I saw many complaints about Power Color not ...

Awful company (PowerColor) to deal with

neil g., Newegg
14 April 2015
  • Summary: Cards with better performance are available from other manufacturers for same or less money.
  • Pros: Price with rebate was good. But see cons.
  • Cons: Two issues: 1. Poor performance. My 5-year old Dell SFF with a socket 775 CPU has better native performance than this card does. Wanted this as a backup computer I could hook up to a TV and needed the HDMI output. While it worked, the Windows experience score was actually worse with this card. 2....

A good upgrade over the video systems included on most motherboards

Obsoleta, Amazon
26 March 2015
  • Summary: This is an inexpensive video card that is being used to upgrade the system included on the motherboard. It is a great improvement, and works well. It is not a top of the line card for serious gaming, but for casual use. It has a VGA, DVI and HDMI port built into the card.

Just OK!

Ron, Amazon
19 March 2015
  • Summary: A bit difficult to set-up. Lots of steps needed to get it to properly work with my monitor. Overall, it is ok. Not as good as the previous Radeon I had.
