Cons THEY CALL IT 9800 AIW PRO? THEY SHOULD CALL IT THE 9800 AIW Lausy Card Guaranteed.
Pros good quality
Cons usualy packs up after 5 years
Summary good quality
Pros there is nothing good about this product. the people who rated it good, did so before they allowed this card enough time to go haywire. because IT WILL.
Cons Software bugs galore. No tech support. Very difficult to understand software configurations.
Summary Please save yourself the aggravation and DO NOT buy this WORTHLESS video card. (Unless you enjoy spending HOURS frustrated and angry sitting at your computer updating drivers over and over again, and having your computer freeze). What a mistake this was. I will NEVER buy from ATI again.
Pros Hardware was easy to install
Cons The customer support was non-existant
Summary I believe I got a bad product and got no support from ATI. With several years experience building systems I could not make this card work right and ATI did nothing to see that their product was working as it should. ATI should be ashamed of building a product that they would not stand behind.
Pros Satisfactory TV performance, DVR feature, games run well enough
Cons ABYSMAL software, color sometimes gets distorted
Summary It seems like everytime I need to configure something differently, that feature will work (sometimes), however make another not. I have had this card for a few months now, and I have yet to reach the equilibrium of hardware and software functionality. As a video card, I have had only minor problems such as displaying distorted colors, however that tends to correct itself after a while. It runs Call of Duty 2 very well, though not on extreme settings. In all, I mostly got this card for its TV tuning capabilities because I already had the Radeon 9800. It still plays television, though for some reason I cannot use ATISched.exe which schedules programming. This was a big let down because I wanted this for its DVR capabilities because I wanted to record shows. I wanted to record shows because the conflicted with my schedules, so I was left dissappointed.
