Not Actually Low-Profile

mjohanso, Amazon
18 June 2015
  • Summary: The product description was misleading because the video card I received did not come with low-profile brackets. It included a brochure that offered low-profile brackets as an extra cost. Otherwise, the video card works great and the image quality is very good.

No low profile brackets included!

Billy Joe Sammy Jim, Amazon
22 May 2015
  • Summary: The card works fine for what it is, but it is NOT a low profile card. At least, the brackets aren't included even though the board would fit. I'm not waiting in XFX to ship them, I've ordered another card and will be returning this one.

foolish buy

Whatmorecanyousay "Bob", Amazon
6 February 2015
  • Summary: My bad, ORDERED this before my AMD Lenovo arrived with integrated graphics. Read specs indicating much lower performanc than A8 multi. Sent back. It appears i would need to spend $160 for pci board or have better performace. Oh well only need top end monitor to justify. Not gamers

Had to RMA

Yuri K., Newegg
26 December 2014
  • Summary: Bought this for my HTPC, so HDMI capability was crucial. Alas, this was exactly one function that didn't work. Also, the unit's operating temperature was a big concern - I could barely touch the heatsink. Had to RMA the unit.
  • Pros: Cheap, small, no noisy fan, low profile option
  • Cons: Runs hot, so maybe (potentially noisy) fan is a good idea, HDMI output didn't work.

Video Card doesn't come with Low profile Brackets

Steve, Amazon
9 October 2014
  • Summary: For those purchasing this video card to be used in a Small Form Factor Case or SFF (I purchased it to use in a SFF), be aware that i purchased this item on 10/8/2014 and the Video Card I received didn't come with the Low Profile Brackets as described on the product page.

runs hot but ok so far

Andrew S., Newegg
21 August 2014
  • Summary: I also recently bought the MSI card that is essentially the same for the same price and its better
  • Pros: Its cheap, it does work, loaded without any problems
  • Cons: Runs at 80c so maybe sensor is out or something, but it is running. A little disappointed in Newegg which had it on the rebate search page even though the rebate had expired the day before

User Review

NICHOLAS WL_S, NCIX.com
11 June 2014
  • Summary: HD 5450's are a dime a dozen, but I chose this XFX one as there was a sale. However the one issue is the VGA ribbon cable is not long enough even compared to photos. Due to my low-pro case setup, I needed to place the VGA on a slot on the backside of the card, however due to the length of the ribbon...
  • Pros: Solid basic upgrade over integrated graphics
  • Cons: VGA cable not long enough!

No 1920 x 1080

Harold "Harold", Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: This board does have the big advantage of not having a fan, so a big failure mode is off the table. The big disadvantage of the card is that it does not support the standard high definition resolution of 1920 by 1080.

Ken W., Newegg
30 April 2014
  • Summary: I ended up using an ASUS EN210 SILENT which cost me only 5 bucks more and 1) faster 2) doesn't flicker 3) installed without glitch
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: I purchased this card for use in a home theater, but found that output from the HDMI port at 1080P flickered quite a bit making this card less than great. Could not get the ATI Catalyst Control Center installed. Blue screened every time I tried to install it.
