PRODUCT COMPOSITION


Hightech's 9200SE offering is targeted towards the consumer that needs a cheap, high quality videocard for their new system. Currently HIS has set the MSRP at a measly US$80 which will translate to a shelf price in the US$60-70 range once retailers start competing.



The card comes packed in your everyday sized videocard box. Packaging is neat and protects the product rather well.



Seeing that this is a fully functional VIVO card, HIS decided to through in some extra software along with the installation and user's manual.


Software Included:


- Driver's CD
- 3D-Album (Digital Photo Editor & Album)
- PowerDVD 5 (Standard Version)
- MLEAD VideoStudio7 SE (Video Editing Software)


The bundle software allows the buyer to take advantage of the VIVO features without having to purchase any additional software. I found it commendable that HIS chose to include this valuable software with a product that has such a low sticker price.



The hardware included is a six foot S-Video cable, a DVI to VGA convertor and the VIVO dongle.



The VIVO dongle consists of both composite and S-Video inputs and outputs for added flexibility.



The Excalibur 9200SE VIVO is a very simple videocard constructed using a blue PCB. You have a choice between two models with the only difference being if you want 64Megs of onboard ram or 128Megs. Personally I would recommend 128megs to anyone purchasing a videocard in today's market for sufficient headroom.
