Pros: Decent card but......
Cons: Sapphire Denied my rebate stating that the barcode was not included. The Crazy thing is they had a link showing all of the documentation that I sent and it clearly shows the barcode TAPED to the Rebate form. Are they Blind or do they simply not want to Honor the rebate? I will never buy a Sapphire product again and my company spends Tens of Thousands of dollars a year buying Sapphire.
Summary: Bought this because my and all the new TV's don't have PC inputs. Older computer, Windows Vista on a dual core Celeron. Very easy to install. Put it in the slot, connected the monitor to it, booted and let it install basic drivers, then installed drivers that came with it. Rebooted and then connected it to the TV. It worked right away on my LG 32 inch Tv with the HDMI input and the sound is included in the HDMI ouput. Now I have a smart TV that I can watch movies on.
Summary: I purchased this card as an experiment with one of my servers. It works great and I have had no issues. I use that server as a development server now that I can run graphics programs on it. Very pleased with the product.
Summary: For 25 dollars it is a deal. Better than just the chip set on the MoBo with shared virtual memory. Sure its not a Radeon 7990 but that's not why you would consider this unit. It is great for web browsing and media. It is not a gaming card. A good value.
