Summary: I am a computer tech and bought 2 of these over a year ago for my personal 1st generation duo-core and quad-core computers. They have worked flawlessly and are a great bargain price for most functions.
Summary: Got for a slimline computer with limited space and power. The card was OK but the software trashed my computer -- it relies on dotnet 4.0 runtime, which I have installed, but it wouldn't find or use it. Tried for hours to get it to find dotnet 4.0 and in the process of installing, uninstalling, reinstalling, it trashed my system so bad I had to reinstall Win 7 from scratch and set my whole system back up, a 40-hour process.
Summary: Works great on our old Dell E521, the original NVidia integrated graphics were very sluggish with HD video and photo editing. This new card breathed life into our old computer, I wish I had purchased this graphics card sooner! It now plays HD videos with ease and Photoshop runs surprising well. While it by no means surpasses our i7 system, for being around 7 years old I am very impressed.
Summary: This is the first time I've ever build a computer where I the mainboard did not have integrated video, the Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 was a pleasant surprise. I don't play many games(Half Life 2), but this video card brought my game to life. I would recommend this card to anyone who would be interested in getting better video performance from their PC games.
Summary: Lets not mistake this for high end. It works great as a bidget card for someone not doing anything heavily graphics intensive. Would recommend for any office desktop as a bump up from on board. Not for anyone trying to get HD quality or a gaming experience.
Summary: bought this for a workhorse computer, not a gamer, This card is the lowest rated item on my windows index with a 4.5 desktop graphics performance, oddly enough it scores 6.1 in 3d business and gaming performance. Good little card.
Summary: I was surprised by how good this card is. I bought this card to replace a nvidia card that had a fan go bad. This card has a heatsink which performs well. also it is low profile so it fit nicely above my other PCI card. My computer now runs cool and is virtually silent. I use the card to watch movies on my TV and the picture is beautiful the software for the card allows you to control the video display accurately.
