Pros: New 15nm Toshiba MLC NAND. 4 year warranty. Comes with Acronis free data migration key.
Other Thoughts: Owned this drive for about 1 week now. I upgraded from a almost 3 year old Crucial M500 480gb ssd. I mostly play computer games.
This drive feels faster than my old M500, the M500 for instance when I jump into a match for Battlefield 4 and enter a map the textures for the map would not be loaded and I could run around for sometimes 20 or 30 seconds waiting for textures to load. This PNY CS2211 loads the texture instantly, no waiting at all.
Another game I have tested was Tom Clancy's The Division. Using the M500 when fast traveling around the map it would take about 30 seconds or so. This PNY CS2211 takes on average maybe 10 to 15 seconds at most to load and fast travel around map.
The Acronis migration software is easy to use. I cloned 180gb of space from M500 to this PNY drive in about 8 minutes.
Pros: Easy to setup. Currently have this set installed on a Asrock Z170 OC formula mobo with a 6600k. As of today on gskills website they have this ram not being compatible with the mobo im using. But the ram works just fine, XMP profile easily enabled in bios. Ram works very well. Make sure you update your bios.
Other Thoughts: Passed memtest and windows memory diagnostic tool, no errors.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These are short low profile sticks. They are not tall and flashy like other ram modules brands. Currently using these in a Asrock Extreme 4 mobo with a 5820k @4.5. Xmp profile easily enabled in bios. These modules work really well.
Other Thoughts: Tested Aida 64 memory and cache benchmark.
Stock xmp profile for 2666mhz is 13-14-14-39 CR2.
Read 50760, Write 50274, Copy 55328, Latency 59.3 ns.
2666mhz 12-13-13-38 CR1
Read 52021, Write 50289, Copy 55831, Latency 56.9 ns.
I have been running the lower timings 12-13-13-38 CR1 2666mhz for the past few weeks and has been rock solid.
I tryed to overclock the ram to see if they could go faster but the mobo or memory controller on the cpu cant handle anything higher than 2666 mhz at the moment.
I do alot of gaming and some video rendering and recording stuff. I have thrown everything at these modules and they have been a very good purchase for me.
