This review is from: Coboc 3 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
Pros: Price. Thin/flexible.
Cons: Not as advertised.
Other Thoughts: According to the specs this is ARC-compatible. Not so. Repeated attempts failed. Switched out with another manufacturer's cable and ARC connection worked flawlessly. Guess you get what you pay for.
This cable was included in a bundle purchase (various lengths). Can't speak for the others at this point but may eventually try each of the remaining cables at some point just to satisfy my curiosity. Not holding my breath.
Pros: Nice physical setup. Installation "seemed" painless enough, however...
Cons: ...I just can't get it to work!
Other Thoughts: Well, I held off on this review the first time around hoping the RMA process would rescue me. Not the case. I'm having the very same connection issues with this replacement adapter as I experienced the first time around. It just plain and simply won't work on our W7 64-bit system. Oh, I may be able to get a single connection, if I'm lucky, but if I have to re-connect for any reason whatsoever (restart, wakeup, unplug/replug the adapter... whatever) forget it. The first time around several emails with Rosewill tech support over several days failed to produce a solution to my woes. Their repsonses were timely, no complaints there. Beyond suggesting attempting various downloads (which I had already tried) they didn't have much else to offer and ultimately suggested RMAing, which I did. The replacement adapter is performing exactly as the adapter it replaced. Each and every time it throws up the Windows Network Troubleshooter, attempts a repair and fails, I'm left with being told to checkREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installation is easy enough. However...
Cons: ...Did not provide USB 3.0 service to attached port.
Other Thoughts: As an earlier reviewer mentioned no matter how many times I tried I could not get the card to provide 3.0 service to the attached port. I attempted drivers from the included disk as well as downloading 2 drivers from the manufacturers website. I made several attempts with each to no avail. Each time I plugged in a flash drive I got the popup stating I needed to attach the drive to a 3.0 port for proper speeds. Plugged the drive into the rear-mounted MB 3.0 ports and the drive functioned normally. It was just a "no go".
I am in the process of my first-ever Newegg RMA.
