The installation of this card went very smoothly. There was adequate documentation available, both in print and online, to help with the special features, as well as with the configuration. The Catalyst Control Center is a very handy utility that is easy to navigate and has many features that I would have only expected on a more expensive card. One drawback was that the heatsink and fan looked a little undersized and would probably be the big limiting factor in overclocking, but the board design makes upgrading it much easier.
At first glance, this card appeared to be way too small to be of any performance value, but after testing, I quickly realized that the size was really a benefit of the 65nm fabrication process that this card was built with. I really like the fact that the HD 2400 Pro is so compact in design but can still deliver so much power and performance at moderate game settings. It would easily fit into any size case or multimedia enclosure.
The PowerColor HD 2400 Pro is definitely not a top of the line video card, but it is not meant to be. The card, when configured properly, can deliver blazing fast performance that is, at some resolutions, not far from the high end cards. For the overall cost and what you get for your money, the PowerColor HD 2400 Pro is a good choice for the moderate gaming system.
