Pros: It's a functional replacement if you just need a new PSU.
Cons: The part numbers indicate that it's the high-voltage protected version, but it's not.
Overall Review: I can't rate it up or down since I'm not using it, but I can say it's not what I ordered.
Pros: Good performance on 30 watts. The fan is quiet, and framerates were decent. It was as easy to install as any other video card.
Cons: Can get a little toasty if you don't know what you're doing. I used MSI Afterburner to lower the target temp, which was originally 83. Running that hot will shorten the lifespan. And I'm not running a serious gaming rig, so if that's your thing you probably want something bigger. If you want high frames at a high resolution, definitely pass.
Overall Review: I got this because I needed a GPU with a low TDP that didn't overhang my PCIe x1 slot. It's not world-class, but it hits a sweet spot between cheap and low-power on one side, and acceptable performance on the other. It's sort of the high end of the low end; decent performance for most people, but it doesn't cost a lot or use a lot of power. I'd recommend it if you've got a cheap business PC with only integrated graphics, as this most likely won't necessitate a new power supply unit.
