One of the underlying problems with assessing TV tuner quality is the fact that there are many variables that come into play that can affect how sharp, bright, and clear an image looks. Probably the most important of which is source quality. To put it simply, if the quality of picture coming out of your Coax cable is degraded, the picture you will see on your television or your PC will show this degradation.
In our quality tests, we saw that while watching certain channels, our video was a bit noisy. The input signal was coming from a coax like that had been split multiple times, however. With that said, the quality we saw with the TV Wonder 650 PCIe was on par or better than the various televisions in my home, but like we mentioned in our ATI Theatre 650 review, image quality is ultimately very subjective. Nevertheless, we werehappy with the image quality offered by TV Wonder 650 PCIe.
