For the nth time, again i bought a wrong or defective or substandard multi-media item from CD-R King. This time, it’s a VGA cable for my LCD monitor. I had it last December but it is just this week that i had it replaced with a good and working one.
The trouble with the VGA cable i bought from CD-R King @ a cheap price is that it fails to reflect the true colors on the monitor. I noticed the discrepancy the first time i’d used it on my Xenon LCD monitor and my PC last December 2009. Though, the colors from the DVD player and TV are correct but when i shifted to PC, there is no GREEN.The green turns into yellow. The red color is becoming black.
Again, to establish if the cable is really the culprit, i tried another cable from a working PC as my first step in diagnosing the problem. The cable is working–the true colors are being reflected on my monitor. So i bought a new VGA cable from another store and installed it on my PC and LCD monitor. It works.
The VGA cable i bought from CD-R King is long and it’s entirely black in color. While, the new cable is shorter and the plugs are blue in color. Compare the images below:

As i pointed out here in my blog during my previous posts, a lot of multi-media items sold in CD-R King are below its customers’ expectations. The management have been mum on the customer’s complaints published anywhere on the net because they don’t believe in the media.
The only redress for us disgruntled customers is NOT TO BUY @ CD-R King anymore. I already stopped buying items there after i bought a USB WiFi Adpater dongle that has a conflict with the Windows Log On system and Welcome Screen. My first sad experience with the store was when my MP4 player was damaged and it wasn’t restored anymore because of “NO SPARE PARTS AVAILABLE” from the store.
Join my crusade, go for the STANDARD and durable items!!!!
