Bought this card so that I could specifically connect my PC to my TV and enjoy some 'HD' video such as BBC iplayer.

The card went in very easily and the install procedure was quick and pretty simple. The supplied software recognised the Sony W5500 without a problem (connected with a Philex 5m HDMI cable bought from Amazon).

The main problems I had came when I tried to watch some HD video content on the TV. The first noticeable issue was that the picture on the HDTV at 1080p output, whilst excellent, was surrounded by black borders. Having googled the problem I realised that by default the software is set to 'underscan' by a certain amount so that the image displayed is only around c80% the size of the original. Disabling 'underscan' on the catalyst software (Desktops and Displays, right click on HDTV, click configure, Scaling options and move slider all the way to the right). Problem solved and a sharp, virbrant 1080p image filled the TV screen.

The next problem came when I tried to use the card for its intended purpose, playing video on the TV (set up as an extended desktop). The video quality was excellent but I noticed the sound would drop out every few seconds (5-10-15 - it varied), quite annoying when trying to watch something and present on avi, mkv and streaming video. After a lengthy google search - I'm by no means an expert on PCs - it became apparent that this 'drop out' of audio was due to a power saving feature known as 'powerplay' which drops the clock speed of the card when appropriate, to save power. This fluctuation in clock speed was causing the sound drop outs.

The solution this time came from a third party.

I purchased this as a replacement for the card in my home PC. For the price paid it is amazing value for money. I use the HDMI output to connect it to my TV in the living room and the card will output 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.

The card has no fan on it so it is completely quiet. It comes with 3 brackets which allow it to be installed in both half hight and full hight cases.

It has an onboard sound card also, which allows output of 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound via the HDMI output connector.

However I have had a problem with the audio on the card. If you switch the TV off and bring your computer out of standby, then put the TV on, sound is disabled. The only way to get around this is to restart the PC.

Also I am lucky enough to have another PC that I have put a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210 Graphics Card in. I find the Nvidia card decodes video streams slightly better (less noise) and also outputs HDMI deep color at 36 bits per pixel. This card outputs only 24 bits per pixel.

The hardware for this product is so easy to install, take out the old card, plug in the new one. Simple.

The software on the other hand... Took me 6 and a half hours last night, but eventually got it. If you get the "mom.implementation" error from your current ATI software, you cannot use the CCC to change the settings of the card which is highly frustrating. After 6 hours trying to install the software, this is what it takes (if you get the error mentioned previously);

Uninstall ALL ATI software. Everything. Get driver cleaning software and remove it all, there should be several ATI items to remove.

Then use cookie cleaning software to remove all cookies (I used CCleaner which is freeware)

Search "My Computer" for all files and folders with ATI in the title, easiet to sort it by Company and look for ATI Technologies

Once all history of ATI ever being installed or even looked at on your machine has been removed, restart the computer.

Don't install the driver software yet, open up the disk under my computer and install the CCC Software, then install the device drivers.

Restart the computer and you should be able to use CCC to configure your driver to what you require. I have mine on a 40" HD.

Apart from the severe struggle, this card is good.

I bought this card to replace an nVidia Geforce 8 series one which, despite being less than a year old, had started glitching and overheating (and I bought that one because the previous nVidia Geforce 7 the computer came with broke after just a few years use!). The card was affordable, was easy to install, and produced smooth, glitch-free results.
...But as I said in the title, it does have an odd quirk. Specifically on machines with an inbuilt soundblaster card. Since this is an HD card, it will automatically take control of your sound output, and then cause the soundblaster (which tends to be set to 'auto' priority by default) to vanish from your list of audio choices. To get around this, the usual solution is to reboot your computer, open the BIOS and set your soundblaster card to 'enabled' instead of 'auto'. This should make the onboard sound trump the graphics card and you can enjoy sound and graphics together!
Apart from this minor irritation when setting up, I'm very happy with the card. It's not high-end, but will still perform nicely on games like Neverwinter Nights 2, Halflife 2 and Oblivion on mid-high settings.
