Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Importer520 Gold Plated HDMI Female to DVI-D Male Video Adapter (Electronics)
Received item when promised, but it was in bad shape (not from shipping).
One of the pins on the DVI connector was bent over and another pin was half as long as the others.
I didn't even plug it in because I didn't want to risk damaging my equipment with this cheap connector.
A SIMPLE visual inspection before shipping would have revealed that the product was damaged... I guess that's to much to ask.

While the bent pin is obviously an issue, pins being shorter/longer than others is there for a reason.
The longer pins are ground pins, they are meant to contact the ground on the connection BEFORE the hot pins, this avoids the chance of a spark shooting the gap and causing major issues with your card/cable.
