4 out of 5 eggsPerfectly acceptable

Pros: Thin and fit easily in even with some rather beefy sticks next door. No issues with running at stock, seems to have no issues with alterations dealing with overclocking or timing on the setup it is used in (have had RAM fail in some cases previously).

Cons: Gets a bit too warm for my liking, but nothing very concerning. If you have poor case circulation, though, fix that FIRST before you venture further with these.

Other Thoughts: Nothing really 'wow' about these. They're about as straightforward as it gets, but the message on the side is a nice touch... if a normally invisible one, being as it's inside my PC.

4 out of 5 eggsOne was DOA

Pros: They look and feel like pretty good quality

Cons: My new build wouldn't post. Took me a while to figure out it was the memory. It posts with one of the sticks in, but not with the other. Guess one stick was DOA

Other Thoughts: Now I have to figure out if I should bother to RMA.
I could live with one stick for now I guess. It would be really irritating to delay the whole build just to wait to get RAM back. Plus with RAM prices, is it really going to be worth the hassle and paying shipping?

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome RAM

Pros: No problems ever with the RAM, changed the timings to 9-9-9-24 and haven't had a single issue in the past 4 or so months. It also looks pretty legit.

Cons: One of the sticks came with a bent frame. It's more of a cosmetic issue than anything else and hey, accidents happen. It works fine though.

Other Thoughts: Nary an issue. Love these guys to death.

5 out of 5 eggsGood!

Pros: Works very well. Sleek design, though no one will really see it. DDR3 1600 and was about $36.00 when I bought it.

Cons: None, though it may be a little hard to find if I wanted another 4-8gigs, if for some odd reason I wanted to expand.

Other Thoughts: French type reads "I am so envious of you", or something like that.

5 out of 5 eggsNo hassle - Reliable Brand

Pros: Crucial Brand
Red low-profile heatspreaders (they aren't even a hair taller than the PCB, and are open on top to allow more air flow, I suppose).
Works in my BIOSTAR TZ68A+ - didn't have to adjust anything in BIOs. No hassle.

Cons: None yet. Just upgraded my system's main components and have no immediate plans to overclock.

Other Thoughts: Big, obnoxious rip-jaw-esque heatspreaders aren't very useful, and they tend to get in the way of my CPU cooler (currently using an Eclipse Gemini with dual 120mm fans).

I think these look pretty snazzy, but my main concern was that they were Crucial. Have had bad luck with Kingston DDR2, in the past. Currently using Crucial in my netbook as well, and have zero problems.
