Pros: Thin and flexible. Could be a good thing if running the cables through a tight grommet.
Cons: It's so thin it feels like it is cheaply made. Makes me wonder if it is properly shielded and has all the internal wires to fully comply with the HDMI specification.
This cable doesn't appear to send the signals to sleep/wake a monitor, thus further indicating to me that it may not meet all specs.
Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these cables for a dual monitor setup and both had the same issue. Neither told my monitors to go to sleep when my PC is shut down, so my monitors cycle through the "no signal" dialog then eventually power down completely. Then once the PC is turned on, it doesn't wake the monitors from sleep mode and I have to manually cycle the monitors' power to get them up and running again. I've used several different brand HDMI cables around this price point and never had any issues. I'd recommend looking elsewhere for an HDMI cable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS GRYPHON Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: New board shipped with Z87 C2 stepping which fixes USB issues.
Newegg was extremely fast with shipping.
All the other "Pros" still apply.
Cons: See previous review.
Other Thoughts: I was able to find a damaged motherboard online for cheap with compatible RAM clips as replacement for the one that broke. Still not happy it happened but at least it seems to be a cheap/easy fix. Will likely use the fixed board in a file server build in a few months. In hindsight, I was probably a bit too critical with a 3 egg review before long as it was an isolated incident. The new board is installed and working great. If I were to review it again I'd give it 4 eggs. Only hangup still is the price as it is about twenty dollars more than some competing boards.READ FULL REVIEW
