HDMI sound cuts out sometimes

Gregory A., Newegg
11 January 2015
  • Summary: I had pretty minimal expectations for the card, but unfortunately it fell a bit short.
  • Pros: Quiet, uses little power.
  • Cons: This card is in my multimedia box connected to my TV, so it was only intended for watching movies and shows. I'm using the HDMI out to carry the audio and video, but unfortunately this setup sometimes results in the audio cutting out for a second or two, which didn't happen with my previous card.

User Review

Calvin W., Newegg
21 October 2014
  • Pros: Appears to be a fine video card with good features
  • Cons: Unable to find out how good this card is because would not bood on my older board (MSI K9A Platinum). It fit the PCIe X16 slot, but would not post, even with a 550 watt PSU. Upgraded the bios to AMI 1.9, but still no post.

Performance drop from Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2

Bruce H., Newegg
10 June 2014
  • Summary: I guess the difference between 128-bit GDDR2 and 1GB DDR accounts for the performance drop. I'm disappointed; I feel like I wasted $40 on this new card. I've reinstalled the old card.
  • Pros: Fan-less low profile card that worked fine in my system.
  • Cons: I purchased this low-profile card in an attempt to improve the performance of my Acer Aspire. I previously had purchased a SAPPHIRE 100253HDMI Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 from NewEgg (now out of stock) to improve over the performance of the integrated Intel graphics (which it did). I wanted a fan-less card, and I thought that upgrading to a HD 5450 with 1GB DDR3 would be an improvement. However, the opposite is true: performance actually dropped after installin...

Not compatible with Lenovo thinkcentre M57p 6073

Libo Y., Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Pros: low profile bracket included
  • Cons: After installing it on either of my two Lenovo thinkcenter M57p 6073-aw5, none of them could reboot. Then I googled it and found this video card has compatibility issue with Lenovo thinkcentre.

Forget About The Rebate...

William D. Meyer, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: After sending in all the proper documentation, my claim was rejected... Sapphire stated that I was missing my invoice sheet and yet when I check their own scans of my documentation it shows the all necessary paperwork. I will not buy another Sapphire product because of this bad experience. The actual product seemed ok.
