"Terrible Product, even worse support"

CNET
12 January 2005
  • Pros: Works easy enough under Win XP if you know what your doing for install. Forget trying tech support as it is not existant and I am supprised ATI has not been sued over this crappy product.
  • Cons: Cheap HDTV card. Good quality HDTV over the air signal. Won't exceed your expectations if you have none or low ones. You'll save a headache if you know not to try to contact ATI Tech support
