5 out of 5 eggs G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GAR 12/30/2014

This review is from: G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GAR

Pros: XMP enabled and works as quad channel on ASUS P9X79 Deluxe. Yes I know it is dual channel kit but when I bought it, it was the cheapest config to get to 64GB. Tested memory for almost a day with memTest86+ and has no error. Low profile is exactly what I need to fit under Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler.

Cons: Price... Memory prices was depressed a year ago. Went up quite a bit this year.
I can only buy 5 kits. I bought 4 but should have bought 5. Could use it in my AMD system.

Other Thoughts: A lot of the negative reviews are over 1-2 years old. They are due to G Skill made a mistake with the memory timings programming. This has been resolved. Usually when things like this happens they pay extra attention. You can buy with confidence.

G Skill needs to make more low profile high speed high quality memory. I still air cool my CPU so the RipJaws line, although I own them too, is not always appealing to me. This RAM kit really hit a home run.

Pros: Fairly stylish exterior. Nice finish. Round Corners. Low Price. Has nice LED indicator

Cons: I have doubt about its capacity. Short USB charge cable

Other Thoughts: I tested this with 2 full charge cycles of the battery with an iPhone 5. Each time I charge my iPhone 5 from a single digit or the mid-teens to full capacity. Both times I was able to charge my iPhone 4-5 times before needing to charge the battery. The capacity of the iPhone 5 battery is only 1440mAh. So if you multiply 1400*5 then the capacity is only around 7-8000mAh. I understand there is energy loss in conversion, but my Anker with 11000mAh can also charge my iPhone 5 5 times before needing a recharge. So this is an disappointment. I was hoping for 6-7 times charge so I can take it for a planned trip, now I need to bring a charger. -1.5 Eggs. The USB charge cable is of high quality, but is only 6 inches long. If it is a foot or 2 that would be much better. -0.5 Eggs.

Northwest 10000 mAh 10,000 mAh Power Bank Dual USB Output 5 Adapters Flashlight 72-105PB

Pros: Has Battery Life Indicator. Flash light. Easy to use. Lightweight

Cons: The readings for the 1.0A and 2.1A output are very hard to read. It would be nice if there is some contrast printed on it. The flashlight is not too bright but just okay. Also, I don't think it is quite 10000 mAh as I could only charge my iPhone 5 3 times (from around 15-20% full) before requiring a charge for the battery

Other Thoughts: Got it for around $20 so it is a good value. Will see how long this lasts.
