Summary: Lasted 20 days, and its already puking. Have been getting AMD Driver crashes more frequently, now there are faint green bars during startup in the BIOS screens, and now finally stopped letting the system get to Windows, Old Sapphire AMD 4870 reinstalled, system came right up. This is installed on a system with no case, completely open, and being fanless it should have no problem with working at room temp. Going to exchange, and try again.
Summary: I purchased this to replace a Radeon 5670 in my HTPC. It worked but I am running OpenElec XBMC and it would not pass through HD audio stream to my receiver. My previous card would do it once and then hang up. It would appear ATI Radeon cards don't like to play with Linux and HD audio. I bought a GeForce GT 610 and it works beautifully.
Summary: Windows Experience index went down to 4.2 for Aero Desktop Graphics when replacing an older NVidia GT240. Not sure if its me or the card. Overall I notice no improvement or degradation in my HTPC.
Summary: I bought this card because it is quite as there is no fan and it has 2GB RAM. After installing and configuring discovered that video on my i5 is choppy and colors are not real. I put my old 256MB 4650 card back and no issues. Going to return it back to TD.
Summary: Would not configure in a new HP Z220 Workstation. I am an IT professional and spent over an hour and a half trying to get it to work on more than one monitor. There is no technical support for this hardware. Very disappointing. The item I got to replace it worked flawlessly.
Warning: DVI-I port actually works only as a DVI-D port, so wont work with VGA adapters

Summary: The DVI-I port that you can see in the photo of this card actually only works as a DVI-D port. It does not send both digital and analogue signals like a DVI-I port should. There is a warning note in the box telling you of this fact, and that it wont work with standard DVI to VGA adapters. So if you want to attach two VGA monitors, it's not possible with standard DVI to VGA adapters.
Summary: The description states that a low profile bracket is contained, but when it turned up, the box doesn't have one listed on the box! I bought this to go in my new HP N54L Microserver. I've now had to buy a separate bracket to get this card to fit. Seller please remove the bracket from your description as this is false advertising.
Summary: Bought this on the back of the product description and a couple of reviews indicating the cards had been fitted to the HP microserver which needs a low-profile bracket. Unfortunately the one shipped to me did not include the required bracket and the 'box includes: ' notes on the side of the box did not list it. Have to assume contents have changed on the recent batch @Amazon. Pity as card was delivered bang on time for me but sadly couldn't be used.
Summary: This card is not really an upgrade. As others have found, it actually drops your WEI scores. Check out my review on the Sapphire HD6670 that I purchased and see the difference. Yes I know the HD6670 is twice the price, but what's the point in downgrading your system for the sake of £30.
