Does not support 4K even though it says it does 4/3/2017 9:44:41 AM

Pros: It works up to 1920, but not higher

Cons: This card is advertised as supporting 4K, but it doesn't support anything above 1920. Someone else logged the same problem, and MSI responded saying that there was nothing wrong with the card. We are going to call and email them to see if they can sort this, so we'll see whether they can help and will update accordingly.

Otherwise avoid this card if you are looking for 4K.

Great Little $24 card for a mini ITX mobile build... Can Play Xcom 2/ Long War 2 with Tons of add ons. 30 fps 3/29/2017 6:59:18 PM

Pros: Price
Full Screen gaming is so old school /I like multi windows open while gaming in window with CPU z and Hardware monitoring tools displayed at same time. Cant stand the flicker from full screen to Desktop or vice versa
If you can get over full screen gaming you can have good gamin experience with lower settings..
Windowed gaming 720p or lower and can have a good gaming experience with the right tweaked settings.
low power itx is running in a car

Cons: none

Overall Review: Would Buy again I have crossfire and high end video cards but wanted something that drew low power for desktop mini itx gaming in a car... Amazing....

Great card for dual monitors or HDMI movies 3/24/2017 4:52:25 PM

Pros: Plug and play. No fan to die down the road.

Cons: it wasn't free

Overall Review: This is not meant for high end gaming. It is meant for adding dual monitors or HDMI to a system that only has VGA. For the guy thinking it would be better then a single 6850, he has no idea what he is talking about. The passmark score on these is around 250. A single 6850 score over 2000. 250 x 2 is only 500. The extra memory doesn't make your GPU better. Do some research before you buy your next card.

Horrible Card 1/1/2017 3:07:49 PM

Pros: Made me appreciate the much older video card I already have.

Cons: Well got 2 of these to crossfire for hoped extreme performance improvement over my Radeon HD6850. Instead even with 2 of these my performance dropped to 10% of what a single 1 GB video card gave me. This is a terrible product and is certainly not worth buying.
It is also being advertised wrong as it is clearly stated on the box that it is a DDR and not a GDDR. Do yourself a favor and find something better than this.

Overall Review: This is not even close to worth the money. Yes the install was easy but the performance was literally worse than I got with my laptop with integrated video. So basically it is worse than not even having a video card.

Works great for what I use it for. 11/22/2016 9:01:31 AM

Pros: Quiet - no fan. No heat problems so far.
Great price without a rebate hassle.
It seems like some video cards can be a pain to get working correctly. I had no issues at all with this.
Used to run dual monitors with DVI and HDMI with no problems.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: I don't do gaming, just needed a card capable of HD video and video/graphics editing. This card does the job at a good price.

How does this work with a 4K monitor? 4/9/2016 8:17:42 AM

Pros: works OK at 1920 X 1080

Cons: I bought this for use with my Seiki 39" 4K resolution monitor that ran nicely at 3840 X 2160 with my previous card. This card is advertised as supporting 4K resolution, yet no matter what I try, I can not get any better than 1920 X 1080. Does anyone know how to set this up to fix this problem? I'm running Windows 10Pro and it recognizes the card in Device Manager as the Radeon R5 200 Series. It is used just for movies/videos, not gaming. Thanks for any advice, I hate to have to return this item.

Overall Review: So far does not do as advertised, supporting 4K.

Card Advertisement is a Lie 3/28/2016 12:38:15 PM

Pros: Unknown

Cons: I bought this card thinking it was built with (G)DDR memory. It clearly states all over the box that the memory is DDR...Not the same. I am, quite frankly, surprised that NewEgg didn't know this or was wrongly advertised or called it GDDR on purpose to sell the cards hoping no one would notice. Either way, I now will have to go thru RMA process to get another card with GDDR

Overall Review: If you are buying this card for GDDR...don't waste you time
