Summary: This is a great graphics card for the media center PC I built specifically for playback of streaming video from a NAS server in my office to the small quiet PC in the living room. The Plus is that both Audio and Video stream through the HDMI port on this card making it a perfect solution for playback of video for the budget price of this card. Plays perfect 1080p streams so this card fit my purposes perfectly.
Summary: Installed easily on my Win7 machine. I use the for watching internet on my 40" Samsung TV. It didn't like the new driver from Windows update and had to revert to driver from install CD. Tried newest driver(s) from Zotac website and still won't work. Even installed card in another Dell machine and the newest driver(s) will not work. Disappointed in that but the install CD driver works.
Going to install this in my Dell Poweredge 2900 Server

Summary: I was given a Dell Poweredge 2900 from work. It has Dual Intel Xeon Processors @ 2.3ghz, and 8GB DDR2 ram. I plan on putting this card into the server in the 8x slot. I am going to use my server as a SteamOS box. I heared it was possible to put a 1x PCI chip in a 8x PCI slot, so i am going to see how this works. If i get it up and running i will let you know how it performs.
Summary: The Zotac GeForce GT 218 with 512MB DDR3 PCI Express X 1, DVI HDMI VGA Graphics Card it right into my HP Small Form Factor PC. There's not much room in this PC, but the card fit and functioned beautifully. The price wasn't too bad and the shipping was fast! I recommend this product. I actually repair computers full time.
Summary: An Absolute piece of junk.I also own an Nvidia GT220 and there is such a BIG differance ln Performance.No comparison between the two.SPEND the extra money to get a much better quality product.
Summary: This graphics card doesn't have drivers that are compatible with Windows 7, 64 bit. Also, there was insufficient information in regards to system compatibilty for this product. It did not work with the computer system that I bought it for. Shipping took longer than usual as well.
Summary: I noticed that videos on my Dell Inspiron 530s were starting to look choppy. The system has plenty of memory, and I'd rather not upgrade my computer right now, so I thought I'd risk a few bucks to see if upgrading the video card might work. The Inspiron will only take low-profile cards, which limited the selection. The $38 I spent on this product was a bargain -- not only do videos look more smooth, but window scrolling is faster, web pages render much more quickly, etc.
Summary: I have no complains about this card. Just make sure you do have a PCI-Express Slot on your motherboard. I disabled on board video by turning on PCI express 16X in the Bios setup. I purchased it to use the HDMI out from the card. Everything works good. What impressed me the most was how much of a Plug and Play item it is!
