5 out of 5 eggsAwesome RAM!!

Pros: Fast, fast, fast!! Cool look with the the tribal dragon, has 2 mini red led lights that light up when the system is on.. nice touch/surprise. No issues as of yet, don't foresee any issues with it.

Cons: No heat spreaders.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Best deal on DDR2 ram and especially for it's speed. Works great on my HP m9077c core 2 quad and my windows 7 wei is now at 7.1 for memory alone. Compared to the 5.2 from the oem ram I'm thrilled.

Cons: None so far but I find the red led's to be a waste unless they can be used as a diag tool.

Other Thoughts: As usual Newegg rocks socks all the way around. Price, shipping, availability.

3 out of 5 eggsBad Specs

Pros: Great Memory except had to manually set the configuration to make it work.

Cons: NewEggs voltage info is incorrect (1.9v - 2.5v) GeIL rate the memory at 1.8V

Other Thoughts: I bought this ram because of the voltage capabilities.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this stuff!

Pros: Never had a problem with it. When I got them I ran Memtest for 12+ hours without any errors showing up. They used to be incredibly cheap.

Cons: They aren't so cheap anymore?

Other Thoughts: I bought these here in March, 2009 for only $85 (for 8 gigs of RAM!). I was a little concerned because they were so cheap, but they were on the MB vendors list, so I went for it. I decided that I didn't like the MB (Gigabyte MA790X-UD4) so put it & the Geil away for an Asus M4A79 Deluxe with Corsair RAM. I was constantly plagued with "Hypertransport Sync Flood Errors". I couldn't figure out the problem. I decided to try the Geil memory on the Asus & all my problems were gone. Haven't had a problem since (11 months).
I decided to try & get the Gigabyte MB going for a spare PC for whatever and was bummed to see that the price of the Geil has almost doubled since my original purchase. Maybe I'll just get 4 gb instead ...

5 out of 5 eggsGood going so far.

Pros: Great deal for 8GB of ram. Just finished a full pass in memtest86+ 4.10 a couple of hours ago without errors. Decent subscore in Windows 7 of 7.2.

Cons: Only miss the heat-spreaders.

Other Thoughts: I can't stress enough good ESD prevention no matter how long you've been building systems. Take care when dealing with computer equipment; its your time and money.

While the design with the LEDs and Dragons are fun, a design in the future that incorporates a heat-spreader, possibly with custom holes punched through, could incorporate the same theme. LEDs shining through from the board behind such a heat-spreader could be a more appealing option both for aesthetics and functionality.

3 out of 5 eggsNot sure on these

Pros: Cheap, looks good, 8G set. Newegg RMA/Customer service are awesome!

Cons: No heat spreader.

Other Thoughts: I suppose you get what you pay for. Had to RMA these due to a bad stick. Might be better off getting 2 sets of 2 instead? At least this way if you need to return anything, you might be able to keep 4G of it running while you wait for the RMA of the bad set.

5 out of 5 eggsbest chips around

Pros: Everything. I've tried this brand before, and like always, it's been perfect. For this new computer I made, I originally tried AllComponents RAM, but after replacing it 3 times (yes, it failed, I complained, obtained new ones, etc), I finally gave up on those. Popped them in, and worked perfectly. This is the brand for me.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Not that it matters, but they look cool too.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sir/Madam,

We would really like to help you for the faulty memory replacement as a whole kit instead of just one single stick.

Thank you.

1 out of 5 eggsAmnesia

Pros: No wonder it glows red; it's a warning!

Cons: It is very disappointing to install faulty memory on Christmas Day, and then spend the next few hours attempting to isolate the offending stick. (Unfortunately, I bought the memory before the reviewer JW had posted their comments.)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please write us (tech@geil.com.tw) if you need any help.
Thank you so much.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Memory

Pros: None so far - haven't received an 8Gb set that works yet.

Cons: 2 bad sets received so far (1st one RMA'd back) - I'd stay away from this memory. Trying to return the second set to Newegg, but their website says "ineligible" since the original order was over 30 days ago (even though they only shipped me the replacement set 10 days ago).

Other Thoughts: Have had great luck with Newegg up to this point - but will never order Geil memory again.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please go to http://www.geil.com.tw/support_request or send a mail to tech@geil.com.tw to resolve issues.

Thank you.
