2 out of 5 eggspoor customer support

Pros: Nice looking low profile memory. Works as advertised.

Cons: Patriot to date stands alone as the single company that flat out refused to issue a rebate for their product. I am currently going through a progressively convoluted and annoying series of steps with no resolution in site.

I am no stranger to rebates. I have successfully collected at least 40-50 rebates from many companies and I have never had a single problem until now. So congratulation Patriot on standing above the rest and offering inferior customer service. If you are like me and value customer service very highly as well as collect rebates then I highly recommend that you avoid this company.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Worked out of the package, looks cool, and tests fine.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Worked as it should. For a non overclocker (anymore) this is all I needed and at a great price. Thank You!

1 out of 5 eggsThe blue heatsink symoblizes blue screen of death

Pros: Works until it causes PC to crash

Cons: Bought four sticks of this junk for two different computers. One of the PCs continually BSOD'ed on me, mainly when coming out of sleep mode. In the course of troubleshooting, I swapped the RAM and the symptoms transferred to the other PC. Memtest86 causes reboots. Look elsewhere for your memory.

For what it's worth, the working kit is stable and performs as advertised, but a 50% failure rate (admittedly, a rather limited sample) only gets one egg.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

5 out of 5 eggsPatriot Viper 3

Pros: Not much to say, it's an easy install. No issues, ran memory check. This replaced Corsair memory where both sticks were bad, one did not work at all. The other caused blue screens.

Cons: None so far.
