5 out of 5 eggsFast RAM!!!!

Pros: Crazy fast, fired up and ran perfect. No problems whatsoever. Runs at the exact specified timings just as the manufacturer listed.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Have to change BIOS settings to get it to run at 1066 which was no problem.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it worked

Pros: Works well at its rated speed with specified parameters. Can even go a bit higher from 1066.

Cons: One of the dimm stopped working. Couldn't get a hold of manufacturer for replacement. One of the reason I purchased it was because of its warranty. I don't think it will be in this life time that I'll get it replaced. :(

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram, Da Bomb

Pros: Great sticks. Perfect ram for my Asus P5QL/EPU. I love the little red eyes.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Ram installs as 800 so you will have to change it to 1066 in the BIOS. This is stated in the documentation that come with this ram.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Great RAM, LOW PRICE! Installed on my PVR, have 4 gigs of this ram. Case glows red from the un-earthly devilish glowing eyes.

Cons: None. Happy this product did not steal my soul...

Other Thoughts: If this ram was invented back in the mid-evil times, swordsmen would have to fight off the dragon of doom!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory

Pros: Was in a pinch in trying to get the memory I usually get for customer builds when I saw this, took a gamble and added to the cart.
Stuck them in the motherboard, closed my eyes and hit the power button... These sticks are GREAT.
Noticed that the motherboard clocked them at 200mhz(DDR2 400) so I manually changed it to 533mhz to get the full 1066mhz and that was a night and day difference in performance. Took around a full minute at the first speed and now takes under 20 seconds to boot Windows 7 up completely.

The red LEDs are a really nice touch. The case does not have any windows, but you can still see this ominous red hue from the fans - really cool.

They have been warm, but nothing to get worried about.

Cons: Packaging from the manufacture isn't all that great. When I got them they had popped out of the slots and were banging around like a poorly wrapped Christmas present.

Other Thoughts: The system this went into:

AMD Phenom X3 2.3Ghz
2Gb DDR2 GeIL 1066
500Gb WD HDD w/32Mb Cache
ASUS M3A78 780G w/HD3200 Graphics
Windows 7 RC1 7100 32bit

This is a great combination of parts. I think Windows 7 is going to be a great OS that will be taking full advantage of multi-core processors and much better use of RAM.
