I bought this card and feel really foaled by PALIT
Palit Daytona GeForce 3 Ti 200 64MB DDR Tv-out Retail.
and I got this one:
http://home.bip.net/the.millennium.man/gf3.jpg
a)
No DVI connector

b)
No S-Video --> RCA converter
for composite and maybe only for
use of S-VHS, TV or Video set
The tips on this page says that the card only and only is for
(TV-out (only for owners of equipment with S-Video))
and I feel that my swedish reseller (http://www.protran.nu/)
did not know this:
http://www.digit-life.com/articles/gf3palit/index.html

c)
Directx8.1 betaversion

d)
Retail ??? No way !!!
It just shipped in a nice box included
the card and CR-Rom with bad drivers
What is the difference between
RETAIL and BUNDLE in this case, Palit?
False advertising, I suggest

e)
If you are going to buy this card make sure the TV-ship
is developed by CONEXANT. There are two developers making TV-ship for Daytona? Crontel and Conexant and I got the bad one !!!!

f)
And I also feel that this card is a BETA too.

g)
Palit´s homepage have been down for a week now.

h)
And finally I got some response sending over
100:s of mail and they only say:
There are 3 versions.
1. Pure VGA.
2. with S-video TV-out
3. TV-OUT and DVI.
So, what you bought?

- "It looks you are uneducated."

I answered Palit:
Thanks, how could I ever know there are 3 versions
my swedish reseller do commercials that the
card comes with DVI & TV-Out and he only
offer ONE VERSION. Btw, all the testpage
on Internet dont say anything about 3 versions?
-----------------------------------------------------------------
BTW, there?s a green label on the box it says:
g-force 3 Ti200
64 MB DDR w/Tv-out and I just wondering what
"w" stands for?

I bought this card in Sweden from www.protran.nu
Palit Daytona GeForce 3 Ti 200 64MB DDR Tv-out Retail.
Price: 2200:- swedish crones = $220
Because the failure of missing parts I have spent about
400:- swedish crones = $40 for traveling and bought of
cabel for tv-out. Remember also that I have spent
many hours to get this card function included all the
tips I have found on the Internet, but :-(
And is this the results of a bad reseller from sweden too :-(

1.
The first thing I notice was that my retail-version had
been already up-packet. Someone else already opened it.

2.
The second thing I notice was the REATIL version that did not
include any:
- MANUAL,
- CABEL for TV-out.
- DVI-connector
But there was a version of PowerDVD and serialnumbers
in the installation directory?????
Just wondering if it´s legal doing that. I have sent mail to the
developers of PowerDVD asking questions about the bundled
version of PowerDVD.

3.
The thierd thing is that there are only greay-scale for TV-out.
when using a S-VHS connector.
I also tryied a S-VHS--->RCA and used a composite cabel
no picture at all. Read below.**
The tips on this page says that the card only and only is for
(TV-out (only for owners of equipment with S-Video))
and I feel that my reseller did not know this.

4.
There seems to be 2 developers doing TV-ship for Daytona?
Crontel and Conexant and I sure got the BAD one.

5.
FAN, what a little crap is that fan :-)
- Ineffective cooler on the GPU;
- Scarce set of accessories.

6.
And finally my Cristmas was a bit boring, because my
new DVD-player and my new DVD-movie a got for cristmas
only showed up image in greay-scale whith
same bad help from this card.

7.
No new drivers on your page, but who cares anyway this
[-peep-] bad card is going back to the seller or I just let it
go down the drain.

You paid for a Daytona card? What were you thinking?
