Low Profile Failure
Travis R., Newegg
19 June 2015
Summary: I can't believe something so simple as making a cable long enough for the expansion could be overlooked in design.
Pros: Cheap price, works fine in normal tower
Cons: When using with low profile bracket, the ribbon for the D-sub is too short. You cant place the add-on card 'lower' than full card because the ribbon is 1/4 too short. Sloppy design which could be easily solved.
Summary: I got this card to replace my previous video card which lasted for 7 years. This card has "life time warranty". But it died after two months of light use. I come to the XFX support web site and raised "support ticket". No one looked at my ticket for weeks.
Pros: Low price (after rebate), low profile.
Cons: Low quality, unreliable video card. No technical support. No warranty service
Summary: I bought this for a budget build. Fresh install and the latest drivers and having issues with stutter for 1080p flash videos. 720p is smooth. Maybe due to the somewhat low memory bandwidth at 32 bit?
Pros: Fanless, decent overclocking headroom and temps stay low. GPU: 680 mHz Memory (RAMDAC): 600 mHz
Cons: Getting stutter when playing 1080p Youtube Videos
Pros: Ubuntu 12.10 (64) installed driver cleanly. Works okay. You Tube runs fine, photo processing with Raw Therapee is crisp. Quiet, of course. Card installs easily and does not run into motherboard components.
Cons: Cannot find this model amongt the ten listed in the rebate web page. Knock one point off rating. Hope someone can tell me how to claim the $10 rebate. Screen window movement is a little jerky, compared with an older slower machine with a 3 year old (similar low end) Nvidia card. Same OS, same KVM...
Pros: Plug and play. No fan to burn out and completly quiet.
Cons: My system reads it as slower than the card I'm replacing. I'm really just reveiwing this too rag on the shipping again. Newegg always used UPS for shipping and that meant two or three days. Now they send it the other way first just to drop it in the mail and it takes a week, super saver my ...!
Summary: Despite the low WEI rating, this card can handle most non-gamer desktop needs, and probably older games or even newer ones with some of the bells and whistles turned off. Not bad considering the price. Eventually I'll switch to my 4870 when I gut my older machine, though.
Pros: This card is affordable and can meet the needs of most workstations. It worked great for initial configuration purposes in my new X79 based system.
Cons: WEI rating of 2.2 for Aero Desktop Performance looks bad next to all those 7.8's and 7.9's. Gaming graphics rate 5.5.
Pros: Easy Install, Ubuntu picked up immediately. Plays Full screen YouTube HD movies without a drop in frame rate like on-board hd 3000 did. Can deff tell the difference between the RGB and HDMI outputs.
Summary: Remember this is an entry level graphics card. So if you plan on running modern games then op for the 5850 or higher
Pros: does exactly what its suppose to. I gave it 5 eggs because you have to realize this isnt a gaming graphics card, but it will play most games fairly well. It will play all of the slightly older games at mid - ultra settings depending on the game.
