Pros: Fast, easy install, low wattage, six cores for under $90! Comes with pre-silvered heatsink/fan.
Cons: I had to wait until Christmas to install it.
Other Thoughts: Popped out the old Athlon Phenom quad-core and popped in this one with the new heatsink/fan. Easy peasy. Fallout 4 loves it - even with my older-gen GeForce 750i 2GB vid card, it's running at ultra settings.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small, light, easy install, great price, fast transfers, quicker boot with W7. Plugged it in, fired up the computer, went into Windows, activated the drive, formatted - ready to go.
Cons: No way to secure it without an adapter kit, but I knew this going in.
Other Thoughts: Purchased to installed Fallout 4, but used as my OS drive as well. Not very large, but enough for me for now. Load times for the game using ultra textures is minimal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These things work as they should and look good doing it.
Cons: I don't know - how about "You still have to pay for them, they're not free."
Other Thoughts: I bought a set of these maybe four years ago to bump from (2x2GB) to (2x2GB + 2x4GB). Recently one of the 2GB's started causing BSoD's so I picked up another set of 2x4GB Ripjaws to get a total of 16GB. Skinny money, under sixty bucks for 8GB. When I bought my first computer ('94), RAM was $50 per MEGABYTE. At those prices, this (unfeasible at the time) purchase would have cost me $400,000. Ram prices have dropped nearly 99.99% in just over 20 years. Now get off my lawn!READ FULL REVIEW
