Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sapphire Radeon HD3650 512MB DDR2 Dual DVI / TVO PCI-Express Graphics Card (Personal Computers)
This card worked ok for about a month. Then the computer started freezing up, crashing, and not restarting. Event log on the OS and bios didn't indicate anything. Ended up removing the vid card and plugging the monitor directly into the mobo. Now the computer is fine. This Sapphire card was screwing something up.....
2/20/09 Update: Beware this company! If you card dies after the amazon warranty period, you have to deal with the company directly. Even though the card has a 2 year warranty, they charge a minimum $15 RMA handling fee, so you're out at least $20 (15 + return shipping) just for them to look at the card. That's almost half the cost of a new card from amazon and you'll likely get a refurbished model with a 90 day warranty. Not worth the hassle. Amazon should stop selling this company's products......
4/2/09 Update: Sapphire RMA claims it would void the $15 charge since the card died so quickly. I had to eat $5 to send it to them, but they sent me back a working card. We'll see how this one burns in (so far there has been on seize up). I would change the number of stars for this product (probably 3) but amazon doesn't allow it.

You just didn't talk to them right, Saphirre in my experiences with them in repairing other peoples computers (these bargain bin cards are really popular)... Has been nothing but positive. Visiontek on the other hand, is the reason I will never buy another ATI product.
