Coboc 25 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)

3 out of 5 eggs Occasional Noise 09/27/2014

This review is from: Coboc 25 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)

Pros: Usually works. Pretty thin cable that snakes easily. Plug ends are not overly large.

Cons: Once a week or so it creates some obvious white static / noise on the image when I start using it. Unplugging and then plugging back in one end or the other always gets it working pure, though sometimes it takes a few attempts.

Other Thoughts: Once I get a pure connection, it stays pure for the entire viewing session.

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.
