CompUSA had a $35 rebate on it (made it $100 - $35 = $65), except it expired 2 weeks ago. I am guessing the price will eventually come down from $100 in the not too distant future. And yes, if you read reviews on the card on the web, there are reasons that it's cheap.
Funny, I posted over at the AVS forum about the sync issue WAY before anyone else did, and I kinda got laughed at. . . ."just my machine problem". . . .
The audio sync issue is with the ATI DVD software. I went through that problem with ATI for over a month. I helped my friend build a HTPC, and he bought the AIW card. And it is not just with the all in wonder card. He ended up exchanging the card for an ATI video card and a soundblaster live card. . . .still happened. Returned the Soundblaster card and bought an M-Audio 2496 card; still happened. Tried using WinDVD instead of the ATI player, problem disappeared!!!!
If you are having sync problems with an ATI card, try TheaterTek or WInDVD. . . .I can easily make the audio and video go out of sync with almost any setup using a Radeon card and ATI DVD player!!!
