StarTech MDP2DVIW Mini DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter Converter - White
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works with no problems with Intel NUC 10/27/2015

This review is from: StarTech MDP2DVIW Mini DisplayPort to DVI Video Adapter Converter - White

Pros: Very fair price and they just work. I use these with all my Intel NUC builds. They work and I have not had a bad one yet or any defective units. Good picture display no artifacts.

Cons: Price and reliability

Pros: Bought 3 boards 1 out of the 3 was DOA. Had to get a RMA from new egg. Don't know if I am buying another.

Cons: Reliability. I don't understand why manufactures don't do a post assembly inspection test. Why because it cost them money to do this so this is what happens. Instead they pull every 100 board made to check.

Pros: Boards are really straight forward and easy to get set up. Overall performance is fine a non over clocked setup which I was after for two new workstations in a office. Some I7's and Crucial Black Ballistix modules with XMP and WD Velociraptor drives, and you got your self a pretty potent machine even for Business use.

Cons: Only thing that bothers me about these boards and it not so much a con . When doing a install Win7 X64 you have to boot into safe mode sometimes during a install of the USB 3.0 drivers and then delete all the USB root hubs. I have lost use of the mouse and keyboard on this board and numerous Intel USB 3.0 boards after doing a driver install. Only after deleting the USB root Hub and letting the operating system redetect everything was the issue resolved. Mouse and keyboard was usable again. There was no setting in the bios that affected this result. ASRock even release a bios update to help this issue but its really just a nuisance

Other Thoughts: Since Intel is getting out of the MB market I have to start using other boards for office platforms and this board is fitting the bill nicely. I just hope the durability is there.

I have build over 500 pc's using only Intel branded boards and only had 5 that were DOA or some other type of issues out of the box. Most of these Core2 PC are still running today but are really starting to show there age now. I need to find a viable replacement and these might be the answer. The Intel NUC's are also nice but they do have limits on what they can be used for. I just don't like the HDMI video on these. The connectors are mini HDMI and will not take any abuse.
