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.

  • 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.

Get Something Else Other Than This

Sean H., Newegg
16 March 2015
  • Summary: Filled out all the papers and mentioned in the rebate form. three months later - nothing. Emailed to find out what's going on, and was told that the rebate form I sent in was for a future purchase date. WTH This was my first rebate that got denied in 10 years!
  • Pros: It was cheap after rebate if you get it.
  • Cons: There are plenty of other cards you can buy from other reputable manufactures. If you opt to get this one because of its rebate, my advice is to don't hold your breath for it.

OK

15 March 2015
  • Summary: Using for viewing on a Sony HD TV 720P For me it does not run hot, using 2 fans in push-pull. But then again I'm only looking at Youtube videos. Running like a champ for about 5 months. my next card I get will support 4K.
  • Pros: Price while on sale and with a rebate If you want a cheap card for average computing this would be a good one. Using drivers downloaded from AMD. No problem with W7 64 bit Works Linux 64 bit "out of the box"
  • Cons: none

Purchased many of these cards over the years from Newegg

Robert R., Newegg
7 March 2015
  • Summary: If you just need a cheap card to do some basic computing then this is a good card. Buy it when the rebates are offered and you cant beat the price! Do not buy this card if you expect it to do gaming. It will play basic games but nothing mid to high end.
  • Pros: 1.) The Price 2.) 1GB of memory on a value video card 3.) Passive Cooling so no fan will ever go bad 4.) Supports small form factor 5.) The rebates
  • Cons: 1.) This video card is made for web surfing, word processing, email and general use. It is definitely not a gaming video card but you get what you pay for 2.) Rebates for the most part have been honored but there are always those few exceptions that make no sense even though everything was submit...

Quit working

Herschel R., Newegg
6 March 2015
  • Summary: Save yourself time and money and get something else.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: I installed this in a computer, it worked for about an hour, after that it wouldn't display anything. Contacted PowerColor, and they wouldn't do anything unless I payed to get it shipped to their RMA center. I just threw this card away and bought a card from a decent manufacturer. 0/10 would not ...

quit working

Brad R., Newegg
28 February 2015
  • Summary: It's frustrating. IT is not my full time employment, but I like tinkering w/ computers. To have things just fail like this, apparently out of the blue, ends up wasting not only my money but my time, and I only have ~30,000 days to live on this planet, you know?
  • Pros: Cheap -- at least if the rebate comes. Reading the reviews, who knows at this point.
  • Cons: After getting it in the computer I wanted, it worked, so I sent off for the rebate. Then I moved the computer into a new room, and suddenly I had no connection to the monitor. Odd, I thought. Try a different monitor -- still black. Try the VGA connector rather than DVI -- well, there's something,...

Powercolor doesnt honor rebates

24 February 2015
  • Pros: Got the product as described by Newegg. Manufacturer does not honor rebate.
  • Cons: I ordered this with a rebate just to get a cheap card for my daughters computer. received no communication from Powercolor on there end until I contacted them wondering where my rebate was. After a few emails I was informed they denied my rebate request because I had the check mailed to my workpl...
