Passive Cooling, Quiet, Can play 1080p movies and not too demanding games.
This is a good budget card for people who aren't hardcore Gamers, This card will play 1080p bluray movies great and doesn't have a fan making this card ALOT quieter than most other budget cards you can get. If you are looking for a card to use for a server computer, HTPC or even a home computer this card is great! If you are looking for a gaming card you might want to look at the $100.00 range. Although I was able to get this card to play BF3 at playable FPS on low settings.

Experience: 4 Months
can fit a mini back slot
power saving good for a work/ net surfing setup or an htpc.
cannot outperform high end gpus (thats a no-brainer).
screen had some errors of flickering lines until i upgraded the driver
lasted me a long time until i upgraded to a high end gpu. What an experience! Good for a HTPC or an up from intergrated grapics if it doesnt have all 3 video ports. Great product, but not for computer fanatics. Great.

Silent low profile card. Works perfectly.
I purchased this card to replace the one I had onboard. On a computer that is used primarily for surfing the internet, and listen to video. Obviously this is not a video card to play. But for everything else, and the price is perfect.adding hdmi and dvi port is also very interesting.

I recommend it.

-Stays under 45C for the WEI benchmark. Idles at 39C.
-Scores a 5.1 in WEI (5.8 gaming), which means it will run Aero.
-Obviously not a gaming card, but that should be obvious. It's on par with Intel HD3000 graphics.
-Is there some reason we can't buy a cheapo dual DVI card? I suppose you can use the HDMI port, but still, the cheapest dual DVI card is a $55 HD4670.
I was looking for the cheapest PCI-e card sans MIR that wasn't several generations old, and at $30, this was it. I wanted something quiet but that could run Aero+basic office tasks. This card can do that with ease, and does not get hot despite its lack of a fan. Load temps are lower than my GTX470's idle temps.

Cheap on Sale, Good for HTPC use.
If your looking for a quiet HTPC graphics card and need an upgrade this will do the trick. The card includes a micro ATX adapter atleast for me and it works decently enough.

I don't's not a powerhouse by any means but it is excellent for an upgrade as a replacement for most on board graphics cards.

low tdp, passive, single slot, low profile
a tad warm
Using this for a SMP/bigadv folding rig, very good idle power consumption for my PPD/W.

It does run a tad warm for such a low power card though.

Experience: 30 Days

Quiet fanless, low power, great for less intense gaming / multimedia uses
Low-end card, so low-end card weaknesses - not very powerful
This card is great for a HTPC as it is quiet, fanless and has quite the low profile. My motherboard is quite old and it works just fine. The options for DVI, VGA and HDMI out are great, makes switching displays easier.

nice sub 50$ graphics card if you are not thinking about video gaming.
low processing power.
bought for a friend who only browses the internet and casually plays some games. Works great for her. A little bit too hot while operating, but acceptable.

alphabet soup
Experience: 3 Weeks
Price after MIR, low profile bracket included, plays most games on low settings, no fan therefore silent
None for the price
Bought this to replace a broken 4870, and since I no longer game it's perfect for what I needed (my motherboard does not have onboard video).

Has HDMI out so will be great for a HTPC if I ever get around to building one.

Experience: 1 Months
Silent. low profile, relativly cheap
mail in rebate
Bought this for an HTPC build and it has lived up to it has expectations. Nice to have a totally silent video card for a change. Hopefully the maill in rebate shows up soon. Let's face it, cards like this are probably only worth 30 or 40 bucks brand new anyway. Anyhow, if you want a low profile, silent card for regular PC duties, this is a good choice.
