4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad, to be honest...

Pros: Got them cheap at the time... easy to install, durable.

Cons: One died after 5 years. Not going to bother with an RMA or replacement, as my desktop has come a long way since 2008 when I first put it together, but the lifetime warranty didn't do me much good, hence 4 eggs instead of 5.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for some cheap-ish RAM for an old system, this will probably fare pretty well.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: Cheap, pretty

Cons: High failure rate.
Be aware that Crucial's "lifetime warranty" is useless.

I has four of these in a system. One failed.

Crucial simply responded that they no longer have them in stock and cannot replace them.

They offered to substitute some generic memory not compatible with my remaining Crucial sticks.

Waiting weeks for incompatible replacement!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

The 1GB DDR2 Ballistix has gone EOL so we do not have a direct replacement as the components used are no longer produced. For the lifetime warranty we'll offer a comparable or compatible product as it's the only option or a store credit at Crucial. Please talk to a support manager, if you have 4 matching 1GB sticks perhaps we can offer 2 2GB sticks of Ballistix DDR2-800 that we do carry if it is compatable with your system. We will do our best to find a solution, we also offer cross shipment but a credit card is required for this option. Our apologies that this has caused you any problems.

Regards,
Crucial

4 out of 5 eggsFirst bad stick in many years

Pros: Lasted for almost 6 years, Lifetime warranty

Cons: Having one stick go bad and having to go through the process of returning it and waiting for replacement RAM.

Other Thoughts: Back in the 1990s I was a lab tech, we used only Crucial RAM. We installed thousands of sticks of Crucial RAM without any problems.

I am hoping this is a fluke and is not part of the many formerly reliable brands that have in quality and longevity. Crucial stands by their product with a lifetime warranty, that's a big plus in these days of 1-year warranties.

2 out of 5 eggsSticks caused BSOD

Pros: I've had a good track record with Crucial memory in the past

Cons: I had two sticks. I started having issues a few months ago. Finally traced back to a failed RAM, turned out to be the Ballistix. Then two weeks ago, again with the BSOD, troubleshooting revealed that my second Ballistix RAM stick was the culprit.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully Crucial.com will make good on their claims of customer support. These were expensive when I bought them. These were the first RAM that have ever failed on me in 9 years of building my own computers.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy - stay away

Pros: Appeared inexpensive, fast rebate processing (you will need rebate money for RMAs)

Cons: Cheap quality, lots of problems. Purchased 4 pairs or this RAM over the period of six months. All of them caused BSD, system hang on different ASUS and Gigabyte motherboards with Core 2 Duo processors. RMA'd two pairs but still faulty. I am not going to waste my time further. Changing all four pairs with other brands.

Other Thoughts: This product qualifies for recall, especially batch 97432.

4 out of 5 eggsGood RAM

Pros: Great Ram, running this on my gaming rig, with a mobo that only runs up to 1.95 v for the RAM. says it needs 2.2 v to run at 4-4-4-12 but i was able to force the timing down to 4-4-4-12 @ 1.95 v. runs fast!

Cons: None atm, besides that its marked at 2.2v needed, a little high.

Other Thoughts: I would buy it again, if i had a different mobo.

2 out of 5 eggsThey Break

Pros: Easy to install, fast when it works, overclocks very well. I have mine up to a little over 900 mhz at stock timing (4-4-4-12). Crucial has a very efficient RMA process.

Cons: I have ordered this ram twice (for a total of 4 x 1 gb of ram) and one stick ceased to function completely a week later while the remaining 3 all had a problem a month in which seems all to common on forums where the sticks begin to cause random BSOD until you take them out of your computer for a while. Once reinserted, they would work some more but eventually the problem comes back. After RMAing all 4 sticks, the 4 sticks I have now have been working for a couple of months (they sent me slightly different sticks).

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind RMAing ram then look no further. My friend will probably have to RMA all 4 sticks of his ram soon as well since he has been starting to get random blue screens. It isn't a manufacturing defect that causes this, but a problem with the ram's design. If you have a P35 chipset, then definitely get different ram. If you don't, then it might be worth it to take a chance if this ram is on sale.
