  Product Profile : Hercules 3D Prophet II MX 400 
 
A solid card, but nothing special in an already saturated market. If the price is right, it's a good bet. For more information, visit Hercules' website at: http://www.hercules.com
Performance: 6/10

The card performs well in 16-bit, but fails to keep pace with the more efficient Kyro II in 32-bit color.

Stability: 10/10

No problems with the card or drivers whatsoever.

Quality: 9/10

To date, we've not yet had a problem with a Hercules product. And if we did, Hercules' toll-free tech support number makes a quick solution easy.

Features: 7/10

All the necessary hardware features, like T&L, are in place, although it would be nice to see some optional S-Video or TwinView outputs.

Price: 9/10

At less than $100, the card is priced very attractively.

Overall Rating: 7/10

Overall, it's a good card. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, however it's nothing spectacular either. If the price is considerably lower, we'd recommend it over the 3D Prophet 4500. However, at a similar price, we still feel the Kyro II-based 4500 is a better performer.
