BYTECC AP-DPDVI-005 DisplayPort to DVI Cable Adapter 0.5ft (6

5 out of 5 eggs Very Solid and Lasts 02/24/2013

This review is from: BYTECC AP-DPDVI-005 DisplayPort to DVI Cable Adapter 0.5ft (6") w/IC

Pros: Works very well on my Lenovo T510 laptop. I use it at work, keeping the DVI side secured into my 1080p monitor's cord. Every morning I plug it into my laptop's DisplayPort port, and every evening I take it out. Been doing this for over a year, and it's lasted. Connection is always solid; does not wiggle throughout the day.

Cons: It could be an inch longer, but that's just for my own setup. Still works rather well at the length it is.

4 out of 5 eggs Does not Follow ACPI Spec 04/29/2012

This review is from: EVGA Z68 SLI 130-SB-E685-KR LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Intel Motherboard

Pros: BIOS (UEFI) easy to navigate. Manual is particularly good with pictures. The reflash BIOS button is nice; I used it a few times. The BIOS and board did not get in the way while I was researching the problems I had below.

Cons: Seems that it does not follow the ACPI (power management) specification correctly. It works OK for Windows, but not for Linux, including with the latest kernel (3.4.0 is what I tested). Have to boot with the acpi=off parameter. So Linux cannot turn off the computer or sleep or hibernate, and the fans run at full speed. I have created Ubuntu bug #973933 about it.

Difficult to tell exactly how many and which ones of the SATA/eSATA II and III ports can be used (research this before you buy if it's a concern, I'm still not sure myself). The manual fails in this one topic.

4 out of 5 eggs Noise Filter Works Other Way Too 06/16/2010

This review is from: Tripp Lite TLP606B 6 Outlets 790 joules 6' Cord Black Protect It! Surge Suppressor

Pros: Long cord.
EMI/RFI line noise filtering seems to work.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: My computer's switching power supply has been giving me some trouble, as it's been making my room's light noticeably blink off about once per second. I bought this for the EMI/RFI line noise filtering, hoping it would work the other way too. It didn't completely stop the blinking, but did change it to be much less intense, and more like 10 times per second. Now it's difficult to notice.
