Pros: Cooling: large fans and copper heat pipes keep the core cooler than my 7950 Twin Frozr.
Hynix memory: no modified BIOSes needed for good hash rates.
Memory cooling: RAM chips make direct contact to cooler via pads.
Adjustable voltage: Core voltage can be changed with Trixx (no memory voltage control though).
Cons: Analog VRMs: No VRM temperature monitoring, unlike higher quality digital VRMs.
VRM cooling: VRMs are cooled by a PLASTIC bar held on with PUSH PINS. Bar is directly under a fan hub, meaning lower air flow. Despite all this, I haven't seen any throttling when overclocked to 1000 MHz and undervolted.
Other Thoughts: ASIC rating: I ordered four of these and their ASIC qualities are all in the low 60% range. Don't order expecting an amazing overclocker.
Sapphire RMA: As with all Sapphire products, RMAs are handled by the retailer (like Newegg). You cannot get an RMA with Sapphire directly.
This review is from: PNY MHL Adapter A-MH-XX-K01
Pros: - It works, plain and simple.
- Smaller size than most other adapters
Other Thoughts: Some tips for all MHL adapters in general:
- Plug HDMI into adapter first, then power into adapter and lastly adapter into phone/device.
- Test your adapter with the stock kernel before give a negative rating. Custom kernels and ROMs are never perfect when it comes to MHL and USB Host mode.
- Spend the extra $10 and get a name-brand adapter. A lot of MHL problems are caused by cheap, generic (or worse, Chinese knockoffs of real name-brands) adapters.
This review is from: Rosewill RCAB-11019 15 ft. USB 2.0 A Male to Micro B Male Cable (5-Pin), Black M-M
Pros: - Nice and long
- Good price
- Transfers data normally
Cons: - Does not support fast-charge (see Other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: Fast-charge is a mode that, when all components involved support it, can charge your phone or device at 1,000mA or higher. It's how the charger and USB cable that came with your phone/device can charge it from empty to full in two hours or less.
When the USB cable isn't designed for this mode (like this cable), it's limited to the standard USB specification of 500mA or less. This means it will take four hours or more to charge your device.
