With the utmost respect to the bit-tech hardware review team - why did it take so long? These have been around for months. I've been using them in builds since the start of this year... It's been at least 5 months since I (a humble system builder) got my hands on my first set of these.

It's a great review of a brilliant product, but I can't help but feel that it's about 4 or 5 months late :?

[edit]

It may be the spongy customer Wi-Fi connection I'm on at the moment, but none of the images are loading for me. Can someone check them?

We're not usually in the habit of reviewing individual watercooling fittings so didn't really see a need to review them when they were released. However, these came our way as part of a group test and they were so good we felt compelled to review them.

Clear your cache?

They're not loading for me either and neither are the click to enlarge links.

I see - that makes a lot of sense, thanks for clarifying ;) For the record, they are without a shadow of a doubt the best fittings I've ever used as well. Bitspower compression fittings come a close second and I've never had problems with a single BP fitting from the hundreds I've used, but these are like Bitspower on steroids :D

Definitely no pictures on any articles for me this morning either - I just remoted into one of my servers back at base and they didn't load for me there either.

[edit]

I was using FF as well, tried them in IE and they worked.

For those that are using FF and the images aren't working, what version of FF are you using? (Help>About Firefox)
Combatus 20th June 2012, 11:19 Quote
I've just cleared my cache and tried IE and FF on another PC and they work on there. Very odd but we'll get to the bottom of it!

Firefox 13.0.1 here.
Skill3d 20th June 2012, 11:26 Quote
Firefox 13.0.1 too

Now the bottom one is working on the compression fitting review in FF

I've just added that - the one with the various coloured barbs? I'll try re-upping all the photos and see what happens.

Didn't even know about these thing's but now I do I will probably be using them in my next build.

no problem with images appearing for me (Firefox 12.0)
BigDaddy600 20th June 2012, 11:36 Quote
No images for me (except the last one) in FireFox 16.0a
Combatus 20th June 2012, 11:37 Quote
Gene at Monsoon just sent me a funky image of all the coloured barbs - I uploaded this and people seem to be able to see but not the other photos. I've re-uploaded the originals to this and the shakmods cable braid article. Let me know if this has made a difference!

12.0 at the mo, but downloading 13.
new pic works, but others still do not

The images are being blocked by AdBlock Plus (and similar ad blockers) because they're 300x250 with 300x250 in the filename - a common ad format. Turn off AdBlock Plus and the images will magically appear.

confirmed

Or just disable it on that single page from the options menu.

Just thought I'd say, this isn't something we've done purposefully to force ad-block removal. We've used similar images sizes and naming standards for ages. Just seems that the ad-blockers have changed their recognition system.
