5 out of 5 eggs Excellent 06/09/2014

This review is from: EZOWare Black DisplayPort to HDMI Video Adapter Converter

Pros: Excellent little adapter.

Cons: none

Galaxy GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) DirectX 11 70XKH3HS8GUX 1280MB 320-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Well it's a great card when it works. This one is giving me pixelated graphic's over HDMI that leads to a hard freeze. Eventually it just quit giving video output altogether. It felt flaky to begin with knowing I have to install a driver just to get the HDMI to work on it. I used my wacom cintiq till I had it installed and it's as if the driver unlocks the mini HDMI allowing it to give video output to that port. As usual though just about everything I buy these days in computer hardware lives either a week to a month. It's almost all garbage these days. Seems like none of the engineers can get their act to together and make something that works for AMD boards. I am on a Asus M4A89GTDPro/USB3 board with 890GX chipset. If you have this board I recommend selling it. I replaced it already thinking it had defective PCI E. I have gone through several video cards and replaced my powersupply as well. And nothing seems to work with this setup!

Cons: First I'd like to say newegg does some false advertising on this card. The pictures you see here for the $200 model is the model that goes for $190 basically. I don't get why I'm paying 10 bucks for the wrong shroud that covers this card. It does however have same serial. So whatever they are doing over there they need to lower it 10 cause it's really no different then the GTX 470 that goes for $190. I'd have to check again but I think it's also 320 Bit GDDR5 memory. If that's different then I can see the price being $10 more. But the fact the model seems to be exact same model annoys me a bit cause I like the appearance of this card advertised more. It's not a big deal but I'd like to get what I think I am paying for.

Other Thoughts: My other thoughts is wondering where the computer industry is going. I feel if you have the cash buy a $200 or above board. You'll feel better knowing you might not end up with constant issues. I have replaced my entire machine around video cards thinking it was a powersupply or motherboard issue. Memory always checks in with no errors etc. Worst part of this constant hassle with RMA's is I have spent $100s in RMA's for products that don't work or end up dead. I have been building machines for over 15 years and the latest line of cards are just coming up flawed.
These companies should offer to pay for the first RMA. It's not fair to rip off the customer when you have computer parts that are defective or just simply don't agree with certain chipsets etc. Not my problem. I'm playing you for a product that should work and instead I'm getting ripped off on a daily basis. It really ruins my interest for computers. I might just get out of this hobby if I have to continue doing this.

Pros: Ya know sick of this. Every time I buy computer tech anymore it's either dead in two years to two months or don't work right. One of leading contributors to cheaply made tech is Saitek. I thought I'd try restoring my trust in this company but just like my keyboard this mouse is dead in two months. The laser has stopped working. Don't bother apologizing directly on here Saitek. That doesn't help me when I have to PAY to keep sending back hardware that don't work. I think it's time as customers we just stop supporting companies that can't wait to build something cheap sell it for a high price and it's not even worth half the price you pay. Go with Razer it'll live about a year or two. Better then 2 months for 60 bucks. Then a RMA shipping cost on top of it which will cost me probably another 10 bucks I'm sure.

Cons: There is something to be said about technology today. I have never had so much defective hardware in my life. I've been on computers a long time and the faster this stuff gets the more unreliable it is and these companies have the audacity to charge you a high price on top of it. I'd like to see some American companies rise again and about to start looking into which ever American company has built a mouse. I bet it last. Tired of you wage slaves working for free building this garbage. If you want to start doing customers a favor. Stop making us spend so much time on RMA's. Ship us another mouse etc without us sending you back the product first. Not my fault you can't get your story straight. You get so much bulk returns it's not like you're checking to see if it's defective. As soon as it shows up you send me another. So do it without a return first policy.

Other Thoughts: DON'T buy! End of story. Egg has always been fast but maybe they should create quality assurance team to see if these companies even measure up to sell computer tech that obviously has hidden defects and life spans that are unacceptable for the price you pay.
