Not backwards compatible to PCIe 1.1

ManCaveSteve, Amazon
22 January 2016
  • Summary: I could not use this card because it is not backwards compatible to the PCIe 1.1 slot in my old HP1230n so I had to return it for one from Invidia that is. I don't know if this is even allowed under the PCIe spec, and figured backwards compatibility is a requirement to be compliant - but perhaps not...

It looks like a regular screen stretched on a flat screen monitor

Kakpadzi, Amazon
20 January 2016
  • Summary: I bought this product when I was upgrading my Win7 to Win10 and the graphic card in my PC will was not compatible with Win10. It came in and I installed it. But when I hooked it to two monitors, the image on the monitor is stretched to the sides.

Not suitable for upgrading high amp CPU desktops.

Christiana Humanisto, Amazon
1 November 2015
  • Summary: This unit shipped with mounts for full and slim installs. However, my new 430amp power supply couldn't drive it even though it suggested a 400amp. I suspect it is because the newer power supplies while high in total amperage actually supply less amperage to the CPU's because the new CPU's are...

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.

BEWARE! DOES NOT include low profile brackets

K. Tams, Amazon
1 October 2014
  • Summary: WARNING, does not come with low profile brackets. The page states that low profile brackets are included, but they are not in the box and the box does not say brackets are included. There is a kit you can buy that has the brackets: XFX Low Profile Bracket Kit Model MA-BK01-LP1K.

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

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.
