Pros: Ordered two BLS8G3N169ES4 for my Macbook Pro 13 inch 2.9 i7 (Macbook Pro 9,2) because of the price, latency and I like Crucial. Booted up in 10.9.1 and recognized 16gb RAM right away. Ran Apple Hardware extended test on all of it without problem. In the short term this ram seems to work as good as any "Apple" labeled memory you can buy and lower CAS 9 latency may prove to be beneficial over the CAS 11 that all DDR3 pc3-12800 "Apple" memory is.
Cons: None for now.
Other Thoughts: I never buy "Apple" branded memory because it tends to cost more for no good reason. Memory companies should stop doing this and just test all their memory in all newer Macs just like they take the time to test it with dozens of different chipsets, motherboards and processors on the PC side. Maybe I am just fantasizing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ADATA DashDrive UV128 16GB Flash Drive Model AUV128-16G-RBY
Pros: Inexpensive. Transfers at listed speeds (15+ write 40+ read) when plugged into USB 3.0. it does spike nearly double that in transfer speeds for short periods of transfer. Suspect it depends on file type/size. Transfers faster than any USB 2.0 drive I have ever used when used on USB 2.0 computers as an added benefit.
Cons: None at this point.READ FULL REVIEW
