Summary: Ordered 2. One worked good, the other crashed. No problem getting a replacement. Replacement works good. On both of the machines I'm running these on there is a noticeable difference between the picture quality between the dual screens.
It's Fair for the Price. Nothing Special but works.

Summary: I have had this card for awhile now. Gaming is OK if everything is set to the lowest settings. The card start to show glitching after 1 month casual use like going on Social Media Pages. This card is OK if someone doesn't expect heavy duty anything. This card just won't do it. I may have to get a different card to be able to run my Graphic Editorial Programs.
Summary: This was delivered to my local Wal Mart in a timely manner. It installed easily into my computer. But, there were several problems after I installed it. I lost access to the BIOS, control panel, and "sleep" function. An internet search and question to Radeon's web site did not provide any solutions. I finally had to reinstall Windows 8, then 8.1 after removing the Radeon graphic card.
Pros: Works as advertised; plays all the kids games well; simple to install software; no issues so far. Kids are happy with the graphic card.
Cons: Not a true low profile card as advertised. Slightly taller than computer case can accommodate. Small screw hole is indeed misaligned. All these things were mentioned by other reviewers and are true. I made it work for me, but may not work for your small case computer. buyer beware.
Summary: If you have an HTPC and you need more horsepower for playing Blu-Ray quality videos, this should do the trick. If you're looking for a cheap casual gaming card, look elsewhere.
Pros: It's marginally better than the IGP on Intel Core 2 Duo workstations. It fits nicely in small cases. DVI out and HDMI out make it easy to connect to a variety of display devices and TVs. It plays 1080p video flawlessly on a Core 2 Duo machine.
Cons: It's dog slow for gaming. If you're buying this for any game made after 2004, you're going to have a bad time. The half-height bracket doesn't line up properly with the mounting hole over the HDMI port, so it's not as secure as it should be. It gets really hot when lightly stressed, and will crash or cause glitching in any graphics-heavy game, even Minecraft.
