This review is from: HDMI Male to Female Right Angle 90 Degree Adapter Cable Connector Coupler HDTV
Pros: Works as advertised and relieves strain put on hdmi cable coming out the back of an htpc build. Seems well constructed, and makes solid positive contact for holding itself and cables in place.
Cons: Price is a bit much, but these are not a high-volume item so thats expected to be reflected in the price.
Cant speak yet to the longevity, but if it lasts the ~3-4 years that I expect from any cable or connector, Ill be quite pleased.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to order the correct facing plug. Otherwise you will end up with a connector that points in the wrong direction from what you were hoping for.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: One of the cheapest options available in this length...
Cons: ... Cheapest for a reason. This was bought to replace one of the same model that lasted for about 2 years of interior, static (non-moving) use.
The first one failed because these cable ends are not sealed and either oxidation or more likely an incorrect (ie - acid-based) soldering flux used to connect make the connections ate through four of them.
Other Thoughts: If longevity is an absolute requirement though, you really shouldnt be looking to buy a 12 dollar cable to start with.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have 6 of them in a case and together they are all still inaudible over the ambient (and almost dead silent) 22db noise of a house.
Havent had any issues in over 3 years with them; no whine, no stuttering, no failures.
Built in rubber dampers keep even the flimsiest of cases from resonating vibrations.
Other Thoughts: If you are going to extend the leads on these fans, you will need to splice onto the existing wires. They, as with almost all others, do not have a sturdy enough pcb mounting point to survive desolidering the old leads and replacing them with new ones.
Also, I wish that the black version had black rubber dampers to give a totally blacked out look, but this is easily fixed with some masking tape and paint.
