Pros: Decent upgrade, but negated by failures
Cons: Failures within months of use
Other Thoughts: I bought these from a brick & mortar store. One stick of the two started failing within a few months. PNY replaced them under warranty but one of the sticks was defective out of the box. The other failed within a 1-2 months of use. Thank goodness for the lifetime warranty, but I won't be buying PNY anymore.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Boosted system performance (temporarily)
Cons: Failed within a few months.
Warranty requires original receipt.
Warranty limited to original owner.
Other Thoughts: My laptop ran well for a little while. Then within a couple month I got BSOD reboots randomly. I didn't figure out it was the memory until after I started reinstalling Windows 7 and the installation kept failing. MemTest shows one of the sticks is riddled with errors. Given the warranty limitation and this product failure, I won't be buying any more PNY products - not worth any money savings.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works with Windows Server 2008 R2. Super quiet. Solid construction. Super fast speed of eSata. Includes SATA to eSata adapter/bracket.
Cons: Heavy, bulky (thick), power adapter occupies three outlets side-by-side in a powerstrip
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for alternating overnight backups. Didn't experience the drive sleep problems in other reviews. The fan on one of the units became a little noisy. Eventually, the enclosure became unstable. Backups started to fail. The server would recognize the drive at first but during disk access it would disappear and I had to power cycle the unit and rescan devices in Disk Management to have it recognized again. I'm trying to get warranty service,READ FULL REVIEW
