1 out of 5 eggsPoor Customer Service

Pros: Memory was cheap.

Cons: Customer service is not as good or flexible as other companies. If your memory fails like mine did don't expect them to go out of their way to own up to their "warranty" regardless of the form email they send you.

Other Thoughts: The memory failed (confirmed defective by G Skill) and they refused to replace the memory because the sticker was torn. I requested an explanation of why a partially torn sticker (not sure how it got that way) would absolve them of their responsibility to replace a faulty product. The only response I got was, "that is our policy."

Personally, I am annoyed by companies that use the "fine print" ways to get out of living up to their guarantees. It reminds me of dealing with insurance companies.

My suggestion is pay an extra $5 or $10 for a company that will truly stand by their products.

I had a similar problem with some OWC RAM and they replaced their memory immediately without question & offered to send new RAM before I had even returned the defective one. Their comment to me was "don't worry too much about the sticker. Unless the memory has obviously be tampered or is not ours we will replace it even if the sticker is damaged." G Skill lost my trust. Buyers beware.

Dear Customer

We apologize for the inconvenience. There is no fine print, it is clearly stated on the memory itself and RMA policy that if the sticker is damaged or removed, it will void your G.Skill lifetime warranty. We stand by our products 100% from any defects, and we will make sure G.Skill memory works flawlessly in your system, but there are two minimum key factors: 1. the warranty sticker is not damaged or removed 2. the memory is not physically damaged

As long as the above is maintained, you will be covered by G.Skill for life.

Thank you

Quality and customer service are our top priorities.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems

Pros: Nice packaging. Good quailty. Worked on first boot. I have purchased G.Skill memory for most of my Computers, PC, Mac, Desktops and Laptops and never had any problems. What else can I say it is RAM either it works or it doesn't :).

Cons: Would be nice if it cost less, but it is an older style and a good brand.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked briefly; died.

Pros: Was a good price, worked cleanly in MacBook Pro (at the start)

Cons: Died after < 2 months.

Other Thoughts: Not sure I'd buy G.Skill again; used them to max out my workstation, no problems there, figured I'd up the wife's MBP memory from the same vendor.

Was watching a hulu.com video this morning when *BAM*, machine died, and 3-beep post error messages upon reboot. Installing factory-supplied RAM fixed the issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't believe what you read

Pros: None. They don't work. I bought these originally for my mac mini but it was too early to accept more than 2GB, my fault. Tried them in my Macbook Pro. No good there either. Since I've missed the 30 day return policy I have two worthless chips.

Cons: Read the above entry

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the money

Pros: Bought three of these, two for my Late 2007 Macbook and one for my 1st gen 24" Core 2 Duo iMac. Both machines recognized the new RAM without any incident and are working better than ever.

Cons: Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: This RAM is well worth it for non-aluminum iMacs and Macbooks. If you have an aluminum Macbook or iMac, you want DDR 800 RAM, not 667 like these.
