Pros: Seems to work and haven't ruled out using it for other devices.
Cons: Expected better... I expected that thick, sturdy, shielded rubber feel but this feels more like thin, stiff, plastic sheathing. May be of lower quality than the one I got from the cable company; will have to check them side by side to confirm...
Other Thoughts: I had hoped to use my HDTV as a computer monitor via HDMI as the supplied VGA input lacks HDCP support. Am using an ATI 6850 card which offers native HDMI support and went with this cable directly to the HDMI out on the TV. I was much better off with dual link DVI-D cable via a small DVI female to HDMI end. Don't want to blame the product unnecessarily but thought that a straight HDMI to HDMI connection would offer the best video. I was wrong. Use of this cable got progressively worse and so I went back to my old connection after a week. Will keep it around as it may be useful for something else (other than a PC to HDTV connector).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CyberLink PowerDVD 13 Ultra
Pros: These products are, in fact, nice while they last....
Cons: Reviewers should demand information about Cyberlink's "End of Life" policies, which will render their blu-ray software useless if you don't pay them again for an "upgrade" once they're designated "End of Life." The previous reviewer, Richard, is correct. I was burned this way with PowerDVD9 which stopped working in 2012.
Other Thoughts: If Cyberlink were to clearly announce when "End of Life" takes effect in the product specifications, then consumers might make a more informed decision about the actual usefulness and value of this software. But because they never will, your value to them as sheep to be marketed to may be greater than the value of the actual software is to you. I, for one, do not appreciate being hounded to pay money to update a product I've already legally purchased just so that it will continue to work. Imagine if your hardware had a secret "end of life" policy by the manufacturer that rendered it unworkable by a certain date - there'd be a tremendous uproar! To be fair, Cyberlink isn't the only company guilty of this deceptive practice, others do it as well. Unfortunately, that doesn't make it any less deceptive. I invested in a PC and software to do MY work, not somebody else's. I would advise those considering this purchase to demand and consider truthful and accurate information from the manufacturer on the life of this software before spending $100 on it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Team F108 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Golden) Model TG032GF108N3
Pros: Worked OK while it lasted. USB 3.0 speed was good.
Cons: Purchased in April 2012, dead by Christmas 2013.
Other Thoughts: I never saw it comin'... It used to light up at the end and flash while it was working. The light stopped coming on and neither BIOS or Windows recognized it any further. Comatose; can't wake the little bugger up. Nearly 20 gigs of data down the drain.READ FULL REVIEW
