    We are discussing adding a reporting tool to the extension, but until we do that please post your mismatched Newegg URLs here. That way we can look at what is going on.

    We caught a matching bug this morning that has been corrected. Your submissions of mismatches helped us identify those, so please point these out when you can, thanks!

    Asrock Extreme9 Motherboard matches to Asrock Extreme 3 on Amazon

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005POPQZA/?tag=extension-kb-20


    I've noticed also it seems to have lots of problems matching Radeon Video cards. It almost never matches the correct model, ie: if your looking for a 6870 it will match a shitload of wrong ones or even link Nvidia cards to Amazon like GTX 670 cards. I haven't been posting them as I see them, but I'll start if it helps. Here's one I found in less than 5 mins.

    Radeon 6870 newegg

    and

    direct Amazon link is a 6450 card.

    How does hoverhound actually work?

    Does it maintain its own cross reference link database, or does it use the Amazon search function?

    I've been bitten by the Amazon search function a few times when I've been in a rush. It has a tendency of showing similar items, rather than items matching my exact search terms, causing you to buy the wrong thing if you don't CAREFULLY read the whole thing before ordering.

    I think you can right click the hover hound button and it will bring up a menu to report the mismatch.
