Klevv Cras 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4-24000) Memory Model KM4C4GX4A-3000-16-18-18-36-0

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Played with this memory for a few weeks and from a performance standpoint I can't fault it. Outside performance considerations there are a few cons, listed below. For the pros:

-Quality chips, all 4 pieces worked out of the box without issue, XMP worked.
-Excellent heatspreaders, designed to maximize surface area to dissiipate heat, best I've seen yet. Highly attractive modules, looks like something you would imagine installed in Skynet. : ) They are beautifully dense!
-Overclockable beyond the published ratings. Don't hold back playing with these!
-Great LED accents along top of modules if Red/Black color schemes are your thing.

Cons: - Very tall sticks, recommend CPU colling be liquid cooled to avoid heatsink bulkiness interfering with space issues.
-Price, these are highly expensive when compared to other high performance DDR4. They definitely perform as good as anything else out there but when taking cost into consideration you will pay much more for a few percentage points of improved performance......if that! Some other products can stand to do as good and slightly better, depending on the batch you get, for significantly less money. However, if this memory were produced on the scale of Corsair and G.Skill I think the price would be more comparable. Economies of scale and all that.

Other Thoughts: I was very fortunate to receive these modules for review considering I was starting a new X99 build. I used these in a Gigabyte Gaming 5 and both products played very well together. Meshed real well with the color scheme on the board as well. If you have the money, this kit will get you performance and proper looks!

These sticks have some great OC potential in the right hands, if you're not looking to OC and push things to their limits I would stear clear of these sticks. Clearly, they are for those who love to meddle with tech and wring every bit of juice they can.

OCZ Vector 180 VTR180-25SAT3-120G 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Other reviewers have spoken very well already as to the performance of this unit. I'll just add here what is most important beyond that and that is price for performance and not just price per GB which is often overlooked in the enthusiast segment for SSDs. These drives are excellent under both criteria and a great choice in the 120GB segment for BOTH price and performance. Speeds are awesome! If you are looking to do a budget build with a speedy OS Drive and a lower cost bulk data mechanical hard drive then this is a perfect unit for such a build. In practicality, I've come to use it as a mobile USB flash drive by purchasing a standalone adapter, in this particular situation I used a case. I can recommend the Silverstone TS10 which converts to USB 3.0 in an slim aluminum chassis for $22.99.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a license key for Acronis cloning software, you'll have to download the software from Acronis directly which is not large at all.......for those who wish to clone their existing OS on a current HDD to this slick little SSD.

HP Laptop EliteBook Folio 1020 G1 (L4A53UT#ABA) Intel Core M 5Y71 (1.20GHz) 8GB Memory 256GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 5300 12.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The newer series of Elitebooks that came out in Q2 are what last year's series should have been. HP has finally caught up with it's competitors in the premium line. Most units are now offered at a starting resolution of 1080p and this unit can do 1440p, although I run it at 1080p. Screen quality is top notch for a 12.5", ultrathin and the touch component works well. Viewing angles are very good so sharing with people sitting directly next to either side is good for collaboration. Unit comes packaged with 3 years of NBD onsite support. Adding ADP for 3 years to match is relatively cheap at $169.00 MSRP, use sku UZ281E. All other features shown on the specifications are as advertised. Lightweight and superfast for all business uses except those requiring discrete graphics like working in Autocad or Revit.

Cons: The one major hit the Elitebook line took this time around was the elimination of the Numpad on their 15.6" models. Clearly there is enough room on the unit for it, they just decided to use the same backlit keyboard part as the the smaller 14", 13.3", and 12.5" units in the Elitebook line. It's a great backlit keyboard as far as ultrabooks go but not having a Numpad for the 15.6" models should be considered sacrilege.

Other Thoughts: If you want something light and capable that will do you well for at least 3 years of use then look no further. For a dockign station go with sku D9Y32UT#ABA. Also, there is a special edition model of this Elitebook that takes the weight down from 2.8lbs to 2.2lbs!
