Pros: Runs all my games on fairly high settings. Struggled with Witcher 3 but thats a demanding game. 2 slots for extra ram upgrades.Easy upgrade to windows 10
Cons: Keyboard backlights did not function for me. This is really not an issue for me.
Other Thoughts: This laptop is great , i recommend it if you can find it in stock and are looking for a deal on a refurb.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, Efficient. fits in my motherboard quite easily. Stylish, I like sniper camping people so the name suits me. Price is good.
Cons: It can't get me a cold beer from the fridge.
Other Thoughts: I have been using two of these sticks (2x8gb) for awhile now and have no complaints. It was twice the cost when i bought them back then. I recently upgraded to windows 10 so I decided to get two more. So I'm now part of the 16gb+ club. (4x4gb)
Windows 10 feels kinda ram hungry in my view. I considered going for ddr3 2800 trident ram but would it really make a difference? Doubtful my system would get much faster than it is. If you want speed ram helps but your hdd is the main source of speed when it comes to loading times. Go with an SSD and watch your system scream whether you have 2800+ or 1600 mhz ram. I for one am content for now. I recommend this RAM but if your motherboard does not support 4 slots you should consider getting two of the 8gb sticks instead.
That being said, If you upgrade to windows 10 and game heavily like I do you should consider that 16gb is the new 8gb as 8gb of ram is the new 4gb. It's enough but is it really? It's more like a minimum now in my view.
Pros: Amazing for the price. I use it as a dedicated gaming drive secondary to another drive for less often played games. Games that used to take minutes load up in seconds with this beast . Most noticeable with battlefield 4. It used to take forever to load a map with a standard sata 3.0 gbps drive. This drive gets me in the game fast.
Cons: Didn't fit in my 1x PCI-Express slot as i had thought it would. not that it matters I don't use my 2ndary PCI-E slot. but if you only have two slots and you use SLI or Crossfire you'll want to consider other options
Other Thoughts: Have to download the software from the website to enable the primary ssd portion of this drive to be strictly for cache. Eventually plan to upgrade to full SSD tech when drives higher than 2 or 3 TB become available and the price goes way down . til then this will do nicely.READ FULL REVIEW
