CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
As I said earlier, for the money and the software included, if you are in the market to turn your computer into a handy TV with A/V functionality and don't have the ability to use a PCI version, you really can't go wrong with this product. It is easy to install and setup, comes with ATI exceptional multimedia software along with GemStar's GuidePlus which on it own is worth over US$200 for its' subscription. The image quality is just as good as all the TV wonder and All in Wonder videocard's that I have tested in the past. With a USB 2.0 TV solution, there is no need for compression software which absolutely murders image quality.
Buy it, install it, and watch it. It is worth the money.
- Great Software Bundle
- Easy to Install
- A/V inputs
- CPU Usage a little high
- Channel Changes are a little slow.
