Rosewill HDMI Pro-10 10 Feet Black cable M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome price for an awesome HDMI cable! 12/07/2014

This review is from: Rosewill HDMI Pro-10 10 Feet Black cable M-M

Pros: It is a 10' HDMI cable that costs only $2.99! Works just as well as more expensive HDMI cables and supports both 3D and 4K monitors. The 10' length was necessary in order to replace an existing 6' VGA cable (which cost $17) that was unable to be routed out of sight between a new 24" LED backlit LCD TV/Monitor and the computer case. Now there are no visible cords between the monitor and the computer case. Also, the video and sound go directly to the monitor from the EVGA videocard that I installed in the computer, so the old Dell speakers are no longer necessary.

Cons: None whatsoever. Great HDMI cable at a great price that does exactly what it is advertised to do. Rosewill and NewEgg rock!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: I still have a hard time believing that this cable only cost me $2.99. Three to four years ago, a pair of 6" HDMI cables cost between 30 and 40 dollars. What is even more mind-boggling is the price of a VGA cable at a local discount store (17 dollars!) Between cost and capability, this HDMI cable is a no-brainer in comparison to using a VGA cable (if you have an HDMI connection available on both your video card and your monitor, that is). Rosewill scored big with me on this one!!!

EVGA 01G-P3-2615-RX GeForce GT 610 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Great videocard for adding DVI or HDMI to your rig! 12/07/2014

This review is from: EVGA 01G-P3-2615-RX GeForce GT 610 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: I got this card at a nice price ($10 off regular price) and it added a DVI (dual-link) and an HDMI port to the video connection capability of a friend's computer. This was my first time dealing with upgrading from a VGA connection to an HDMI connection on an LED backlit LCD TV/Monitor, and this card made it a painless upgrade!

Cons: I was looking for a little more ooomph! in adding this card to a computer whose WEI score was 4.2 in Windows 7's Aero graphics and 3.4 in business and gaming graphics capability. This card only raised the machine's Aero score to 4.3, but improved the 3D gaming and business graphics score to 6.2. Overall improvement in WEI went from 3.4 to 4.3! Not bad at all, but I was looking for a little more. My fault, so not worth taking away an egg for (see Other Thoughts). Note that there was no included driver CD that accompanied this card, but for anyone who has even a smidgen of technical know-how, this should not be a problem as you can always download the most current drivers from EVGA's site or simply go to www.nvidia.com and let it scan and detect the videocard and then you simply download and install the latest drivers from there.

Other Thoughts: This card became an immediate necessity after a complete overhaul of a friend's computer took an unexpected (but ultimately fortuitous) turn. While replacing nearly everything in an old Dell Dimension 3000 computer (with the exception of the two optical drives), and upgrading from Windows XP SP3 to Windows 7 SP1, the old CRT monitor that originally came with the computer finally gave up the ghost in a puff of smoke. My friend then took her grandson out (on Thanksgiving afternoon) to a Black Friday event at the local discount store and scored a beautiful 24" LED backlit LCD TV/Monitor that had a myriad of video and audio connections on it, including (of course) an HDMI connection. One of her old Dell speakers had developed a bothersome crackle in it, so this videocard appeared to be the next logical upgrade that was needed. Once I got the card installed (along with an inexpensive 10' HDMI cable from Rosewill), it was simply a matter of using the monitor's manual to get the HDMI connection to the card properly recognized and the rest was a simple job of installing the proper drivers from the manufacturer's website. The picture and the sound that are sent to the monitor from this card are perfect and crystal-clear. Please note that this card is probably between three and four years old, but it proved to be a great upgrade in this case and was just what the doctor ordered.

VANTEC 2-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI-e Host Card Model UGT-PC312 Renesas/NEC Chip

5 out of 5 eggs Great USB 3.0 PCI-E card! 12/07/2014

This review is from: VANTEC 2-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI-e Host Card Model UGT-PC312 Renesas/NEC Chip

Pros: I bought this card at $10.00 off the regular price and got a very good deal on it. It cam with a SATA-to-Molex 4-pin adapter for connecting the card to a SATA PSU connector for the additional power needed by the card to be truly USB 3.0. Thank goodness it came with a driver CD!

Cons: I thought that I would not need the driver CD as drivers on a CD for a product are usually outdated and the manufacturer's website has the "latest and greatest" drivers for their products. Not so with this card! The drivers that I downloaded from Vantec's site did not work at all! Fortunately, the drivers on the disk worked and all is well with a motherboard that had no USB 3.0 ports of its own.as this card has provided two excellent ones.

Other Thoughts: This card is great for anyone who is looking for a way to get USB 3.0 capability into a machine that has only USB 2.0 ports available. This card is easy to install and works perfectly. Just don't try to download the drivers from Vantec's site as they have issues. Just use the included driver CD and you will be fine.
