Pros:

First this is not intended to be a "bad" reveiw and in no way should reflect on NewEgg as they are always great. The memory works as it should and the specs match what is listed on the website. Gave me a scare when first installed (post error beeping) but after reseating twice it began working.

Cons:

Specs for this memory has is slower than it once was.

Other Thoughts:

This review is really a bit of a complaint to Corsair. I purchased (2) x 1GB of this memory three years ago for my son's computer partly because it was about the fastest thing going at the time that was compatible with the computer it was going in. When I decided to add more memory to his computer I ordered the same model memory. My fault for not verifyting the specs but the model number and everything was the same "CORSAIR XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400". When I went to install it I was suprised to find the newer memory was slower than the older memory???

The 3yr old Corsair XMS2 memory has 4-4-4-12 timing.
The new Corsair XMS2 memory has 5-5-5-18 timing.

My fault for not verifying the specs were the same before ordering but and I am very disapointed that Corsair is selling the same model memory with much worse specs.

Also disapointed since I could have gotten CAS 4 memory from another well know manufacturer for about the same price.
