5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

Pros: Straightforward install. Computer recognized it immediately. 8 Gb!! Got it on sale from Newegg with a Rebate.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I installed this in my Thinkpad t430 to supplement the 4 Gb I already had in it. 12 Gb total is overkill but the 8 Gb RAM was on sale.

One thing to note when installing it in the T430 is that I had to push MUCH harder on the ram to get it to lock into place than I have with any other laptop I have upgraded. I don't know if the computer's tolerances or the RAM's are tight but keep that in mind when installing. For a few minutes I thought I had purchased the wrong stuff but once it locked in there were no problems.

5 out of 5 eggs32GB DDR3-1600 in a laptop!

Pros: I have a Sager NP8130 Laptop with the following specs
-Intel Core i7-2670qm @ 2.2GHz
-16GB DDR3-1333 RAM (4x4GB)
-120GB Intel 510 SSD
-nVidia GTX 560m (1.5GB GDDR5, 192-bit, 192-cores)
-Win7 Pro x64.

I installed the 4 Patriot SODIMMs in place of the original 4 SODIMMS (2 under the bottom hatch on the case, 2 under the keyboard), and rebooted the computer. The computer started up without a hitch and all 32GB were read.

RamDisks can be made with this RAM, especially when 4 are in use. I made a 16GB RamDisk with a 4.3GB / sec read and 6.5GB / sec write speed.

Made with Micron Chips, which are stable and share properties with their enterprise RAM counterparts. Quality of the PCB build very high.

CPU-Z and HWINFO both read the full 1.6GHz of the RAM in spite of Intel officially stating that the 2670qm can only handle 1.33GHz RAM. Good on the RAM for not being clocked down.

The one-off nature of having more memory inyour laptop than everyone else :-D

Cons: A bit pricey, but if you have the need for a larger ramdisk in a laptop, or you want futureproofing, it's justifiable.

Bit more heat under laptop, but Sagers are LEGENDARY for heat dissipation, so not worried.

For the Sager, other 2 DIMM slots were under keyboard.

Other Thoughts: If you need enough ram to make a ramdisk on a laptop, this is the memory you need. On most i5 laptops, two can be used to make a 16GB total; with a quadcore i7, up to 32GB. Installation was no different than any other ram, but for those who have 4 SODIMM slots, be weary that you may have to dig under the keyboard to find the balance of the slots.

The use of 32GB DDR3-1600 is NOT something to trifle at, but if you do intense photoshop-work, video production, etc., the RAM can be used as a RAMDisk to improve production performance and reduce un-necessary writes to a rotating or solidstate disk.

Be wary of your laptop's ability to vent heat. Higher-speed RAM makes more heat, and that heat has to go somewhere. DDR3-1600 is faster than the standard DDR3-1333 in most laptops, so you may want to assure you have the thermal leeway first.

But if you want tons of RAM for a RAMDisk scratchpad, or to run photoshop or other creative suites... you came to the right place.
