Conclusion

 

Flyvideo have once again given us a great little add-on for the PC users/Home entertainment freaks. With super low CPU utilization and hardware encoding and decoding, this card is one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of using. While a few niggles were present such as not including any onboard RAM for caching (comes in handy incase you have high speed RAID arrays) or the internal soundcard audio connectors, I can still say this card works better than my old one.

 

- Pros

 

High Quality Chipset

 

Supports over 1200 resolutions

 

Low Resources needed

 

MPEG1 Video capture

 

- Cons

 

No Internal Sound connector

 

No RAM for caching

 

Rating - 8.5/10
