Pros
Easy install, breaks up recorded video files into burnable sizes
Cons
"Best Quality" recording file sizes are huge
Summary
No complaints at this point, everything works the way it should, havent had any integration or software issues. I hope the file sizes shrink considerably with reduced recording quality, or I am going to need another Terabyte

Pros
PCI-E slot, for the new age lol
Cons
not any better then my 4 year old hauppauge 150
Summary
Like everyone else, the drivers on the CD are useless.

Running Windows 7 32bit (because of my Hauppuge 150's) and had to download drivers from the ati website for vista 32bit. once those were installed the card worked.
I did turn on the compability mode to Vista SP1 anyways, not sure if that even mattered. But the card works now, and at first look it looks exactly the same quality like my other hauppauge 150. But the price is right

Im running it in my HTPC that is running SageTV as a frontend, and no issues adding the card to sagetv at all, picked it up without issues.

Pros
Sale Price
Cons
not a lot of functions
Summary
I bought this card for a friend who wanted to watch TV on her computer. The card does the job, but for some reasons, each time Media Center opens, it must search for the card (it takes about 30 secs before she can see the TV). Sale price is good, but I don't think the product is worth the full price. A remote would be also nice...

Pros
Inexpensive
Cons
File sizes a bit big.
Summary
I really have no complaints with this card. It was on sale and did exactly what I needed. I didn't purchase this to capture video as I already had other capture cards and a DVD recorder, but wanted it to watch TV.
The picture quality is pretty good, and it works as it should.
I did try the video capture, and it has bigger file sizes than my old Leadtek card for the same resolution. I have an ATI AIW that uses the same software, and it is the same. I wish I could use my old Winfast software on this card (I tried and can't).
That being said, I would purchase this again.

Pros
-Cheap on sale.
-Very good picutre quality.
-PCI-E card low profile.
-Improve weak cable signal.
Cons
-No FM
Summary
This is a very good card if you're only watching cable, it improves the picture with filters and work even with weak signal strength. Got this on sale for $25. There no FM. Easily installed to Vista 64 MCE and works excellent. Great card for anyone who just want to watch TV on PC.

Pros
It works.
easy to install.
cheap(on sale)
Cons
no remote.

It was super easy to install the software works great, it even comes with instructions for those who are less hardware savvy. If this comes on sale again i would definitely recommend getting it.

Pros
Cheap!! Works with analog cable. PCI express
Cons
only works with analog, cheap software
Summary
Works great for what it is. The biggest draw back for me is the software will not display the picture on my second screen. I can watch TV on my main screen but as soon as I drag the window on my second monitor the picture disappears.

Pros
Installation was dangerously simple. Can work with rather poor signal.
Cons
No cable/adapter provided for the s-video/composite input (I do have an older ati box that does work though). No low profile bracket included.
Summary
For the price that I paid, there is no word to explain my satisfaction. Worked without any issues as soon as I turned the pc on. I tested it with the provided software, and while not the best one around, it does work well, and right away. A tv in the same room cannot get any good signal from the cable while that tuner can. The only drawback I experienced was that I had to trim the bracket that came with the card so it would fit in my htpc, while the card is low-profile, the bracket isn't.

Pros
Easy to install, PCI-E card, & a great price with a rebate
Cons
No FM
Summary
I installed this card and then tgurned on my computer, I guess since the processor, graphic card and this TV card are all ATI/AMD product it automaticly installed the drivers and was working with MS Media Center in a minute or so. It was too easy. I worh recomend this card to everyone but exspecially if like me your system is all ATI/AMD products.
