Pros: I bought this for the Areca 1680ix SAS array controller to increase onboard cache from 512mb to 4gb. New Egg is good!
Cons: Does not work in the Areca 1680ix SAS array controller. This ram caused the entire computer not to post. unreal.Tekram support confirms this fact.

It's server mem
Pros: Plugged it in and it works as rated. Good relative price.
Cons: Price. Over a year ago I got 4x2GB sticks for $35 a piece, which are now pushing about $60 a piece. I feel like I am getting price gouged. Supply and demand sucks.
Other Thoughts: I was a little worried about single rank vs dual and 667 vs 800 in the same server. I have 4 Kingston 667 dual ranked DIMMS on one bank of DIMMs running at 667 and 2 of these on the other bank running at 800. Seems to run fine, but I did get the equivalent of a BSOD for ESXi recently which I have never had before. It could just be a coincidence.

ECC Ram, not for a Desktop motherboard
Pros: READ BEFORE YOU BUY:
Cons: I checked with Kingston's Tech Support customer service line before opening the package. "This will not work in a desktop motherboard." My board is a Biostar A785GE with maximum memory capacity of 8GB, which falls into the catagory of a "desktop."
Other Thoughts: Because I didn't open the seal on the memory, and because I called for an RMA on the phone, rather than process the RMA on the web page, I will not be charged a restocking fee, and the full purchase amount will be refunded. newegg is in integrity, and so am I.
