Simply bad and bad service from Saphirre

X. Caine, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: I'm gaming using a 30" LCD Bought this to upgrade my previous card that started to be a little short... (an 8800 GT) This was a total loss of money. This card is very noisy, and prevents me from playing any game over 1280 resolution. If i do try to use any higher resolution, that usually ends with a wonderful system freeze among a concert of fans.... Pretty bad experience with Sapphire tech support too..

Only buy if you enjoy RMAs

C. Converse, Amazon
7 August 2009
  • Summary: This card runs quiet and performs admirably even in most newer games... ...at least for a few months. Then it will die. If you're lucky, it will die within the reseller's return window, and you can either let them pay the shipping to return it or just get something else. If you're not, you'll have to deal with Sapphire and you will absolutely get to pay shipping to make their crappy card go away and bring another crappy card to your doorstep to replace it.

Quality Control?

A. Cook, Amazon
31 May 2009
  • Summary: Pros - 2GB of Video Ram on a single Card - 4 DVI Ports - Included Software Bundle pretty decent - Includes all accessories you would need (including a PCIe power adapter, DVI - VGA Adapter, and DVI - HDMI adapter. - Metal Fan Shroud - Good power consumption, according to reviews. Cons - Cannot use 4 monitors in Crossfire mode - My copy came shipped with a slightly bent PCB that displayed just ribbons and flashes.

Disheartened.

J. D. Salmons, Amazon
2 April 2009
  • Summary: I love AMAZON. But was very disappointed to get an opened box! (End of Feb.) I quickly ordered a 750 watt trans.- (yes you'll need that) This card was really big! 11.5 Inches long! I was very disappointed that it was "dead on arrival." The installation CD is worthless. Could not get any tech. support. Downloaded User Guide only goes up to 3800 Series?Sapphire may now have a good driver. Card would not boot! Vertical color striped ribbons, Blue screen, Hash.

id stay away, perhaps i got an earlier model.

pan, Amazon
28 February 2009
  • Summary: the minute i turned on the pc it was like a wind tunnel, i tried to set the fan manually and the min setting of 20% was VERY VERY loud. i do not need silence and am pretty tolerable to noise but even during gaming it was very annoying. the fact that even in desktop and mundane tasks it never throttled down was unbearable. i tried to xml edit my profile by downclocking and setting the fan lower but 20% was the lowest it would go still.

Falsche Foto

Galyna Zhmutska, Amazon
26 August 2009
  • Summary: Falsche Foto, habe vor kurzem die Karte bestehlet aber ich habe andre karte bekommen (gleiche Spezifikationen aber benötigt zwei slots auf mainbord). Also, offensichtlich Amazon hat das falsche Foto gestellt. Der Verkäufer Avides war fair und nimmt es zurück.

Pilotes ininstallables ! J'abandonne

fredpas34, Ciao
23 January 2009
  • Summary: La catastrophe !! 3 jours de galères et des dizaines de pages sur des forums (dont celui d'ATI) pour installer le driver sans succès. Tout essayé, désinstaller .NET, réinstaller DirectX 9c, ... modifier le fichier .inf, rien n'y à fait. Je vais donc la ramener pour une Nvidia GeForce GTX 260. Je n'ai jamais eu un seul problème avec Nvidia, je passe sur ATI et voilà le résultat.
  • Pros: Pas eu l'occasion d'en voir
  • Cons: Ininstallable .  La carte n'est pas reconnue lors de l'installation du pilote
