This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: The board is blue?
I do like that it has 6 SATA ports but that's becoming standard with many boards.
Cons: Not really a con but I failed to notice it didn't have built in graphics.
The bigger problem is after only 3 months my CPU fan died and when I replaced it and turned the computer back on I get the beep code 1 long 3 short which is documented as a keyboard error. I tried multiple keyboards PS/2 and USB with the USB in different USB ports.
Only twice in the past hour and a half did it boot successfully once I used to check the BIOS settings and the other was booting to windows but windows had to restore since it failed to boot the other times and required a reboot.
The display only worked on the two successful boots every other time the screen was blank not even showing the POST information.
This review is from: PNY A-DM-HD-W01 Mini DisplayPort (male) to HDMI Adapter (female)
Pros: PNY brand?
Worked with audio
Cons: PNY brand I thought would be better than a generic adapter, guess I was wrong.
I used it last night was the first time I used it, even taking it out of the packaging, to watch about 5 TV episodes from my laptop with out any problems.
Today about 35 minuets in to a show it just gave out, I tested it with multiple different HDMI cables, two different laptops, and checked my settings to make sure no software messed up the output.
If I held it just right I'd get a signal but the picture was showing only the reds and it had some screen refresh static. To RMA it would cost me almost $10 in shipping which was a little less then what I paid for it.
I must have just got a bad one since the reviews are mostly good here only complain about the audio having issues which should have been a sign the connection for the cable isn't that good. I'll probably open it up and solder the joints instead of spending double.
Pros: Go up to 1680x1050.
Crisp clean display.
Black boarder plastic.
Easy On Screen Display(OSD) menu.
Button icons clearly visible.
Small blue LED to show power.
Cons: No DVI connection.
No height adjustment for stand.
Other Thoughts: Mine has a bright dot(A bright dot is a white defective dot that is over 1/2 of the whole sub-pixel under black pattern). Its located on the right side center about 3 inches from the edge. Asus has a unique 1 YEAR Zero Bright Pixel Defect (ZBD) policy I don't know if it applies to this LDC but I hope so.
If not for the bright dot I would give it a 5 Star. I'll update this review as I work with ASUS on this issue.
