2 out of 5 eggs Decent card, but Don't expect to get the rebate though! 10/16/2013

This review is from: ASUS GTX660-DC2O-2GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros:

The GTX 660, much like the GTX 460 is a good card if you want decent mid-tier gaming performance without producing a lot of heat & noise.

Cons:

ASUS is still using 4myrebate.com which is actually owned by Systemax (who is the parent company of Tiger Direct & Circuit City as well).

They are notorious for not honoring rebates. They have you fill out a request to send in a rebate electronically, which you then mail in with the UPC, etc.. like a traditional rebate.

Because they start it electronically they leave it in Processing when you check it, so you think it's being put through the system.

Then after you realize it's been quite a long time and still no rebate, you check the status. Then you find out they have denied it for every reason in the book. You try to contact them and all you get is a automated response telling you to call a phone number that makes you wait on hold for an hour before you give up.

Point being, this card WOULD have been 4 or 5 stars; but ASUS made the big mistake of using a shady rebate company from a company with a crooked history.

It's not worth the hassle & aggravation involved.

Other Thoughts:

ASUS if you're reading this, get your act together!

STOP using 4myrebate. Until then I won't be factoring in the rebate to the cost for ASUS when comparing products to other brands.

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings,

If I may, I would like to help. What rebate were you having issues with? If it is an ASUS rebate, which it sounds like it is, I may be able to help. Please contact me back through email, and we I will be able to look into this further.
