Do you have a problem?

This is one of those products that I just have a hard time finding something really wrong with it.  There is nothing really that sets it apart from any other GeForce 2 MX that is particularly bad.  They all have pretty much no software bundles, so I can't compare that.  I said the exact same thing in our MSI review, and I just have to say it again - GeForce 2 MX RULES!

In Conclusion

Other than the pesky soldering of the fan, I don't see a problem with this GeForce 2 MX.  It is a solid choice as any.  Add to that the TV-Out, and you have a choice that is even... solider.  Add to that the fan on the heatsink, and you have one of the most solid GeForce 2 MX cards around! The memory overclocked well, too!

I don't think it would be fair to other cards in its this price range to compare them with the GeForce 2 MX.  3dfx knows it, and NVidia knows it.  Compared to other GeForce 2 MX's, the Winfast shines with its heatsink-fan, and the overclockable ram.

Stuff That Kicks Ass:

  • Awesome card for the price - hands down beats anything in its class

  • Ram Overclocks very well

  • A fan on the heatsink! What a novel idea!

  • TV-Out, if you care about such a thing

Stuff That Sucks:

  • No real software bundle to mention...

  • The fan connectors are soldered to the board

  • Slightly more expensive than other GF2MX's (without TV-Out, it should be about the same)

  • Other than being slightly faster, this card isn't much different than any other GeForce 2 MX

Overall Score: 96%
