The OEM was/is not the problem, the platform choice is (which leads to a different discussion, about market understanding/approach/strategy and such).
The NEX 1000 should be a lot better though, since it's based on the Aurum Pro.
Still, a bad choice of OEM, IMO.
They though they could pick some mediocre (at best) platform, put a handle to nowhere on it, put EVGA labels on it, and sell it with premium price and hoping their consumers didn't read any legit reviews before buying their product.
Hell, they don't even include some mounting screws for NEX1500, and also would be nice if they include a case badge/stickers for this "premium" products
What a mess, EVGA.
They should stick to selling 13 different types of GTX 680
