Pros: Metal, which is perfect for keyring abuse. I got 6 of these to make bootable drives for Windows 10, 7, and other bootable diagnostic and recovery ISOs. Haven't tested the speed. Fits the Windows 10 all versions installer.
Cons: A little larger physically than needed to be for capacity, but not a real con.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great price, specs were reported in the system as advertised, worked just fine in a desktop HP Pavilion
Cons: No flashy package?
Other Thoughts: I was hesitant at first purchasing this for a client, as it was a brand I hadn't heard of, the low price, and zero reviews at time of purchase. Popped these babies in and they worked great! Got 4 in the Pavilion desktop for a total of 16GB. Would not hesitate to purchase again in the future. Also came with extra cover for the DIMM contacts which I reused on the old memory for storage.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Upgraded a 2011 HP Pavilion DV6 from a first gen i3 to an i5, put in a 240gb crucial SSD, removed the dvd and put the 500gb 5400rpm drive using an adapter in its place and upgraded to windows 10. The 4gb of memory was a noticeable bottleneck and I had tried before to upgrade to 8gb but ran into the issue of voltage as I needed 1.5v. After 6 months I found this memory and wow made quite a difference! Now it feels like Windows 10 can utilize the SSD and i5 so much better. Really doesn't feel like I'm using a 5 year old laptop anymore. No memory errors or crashes at all.
Cons: Vengeance decal is a sticker I guess? Can't see it anyway lol.
Other Thoughts: The old RAM was 2x2gb Samsung PC3-8500. The Intel chipset I have supports up to 1333mhz and these chips downclocked just fine and the extra speed was noticeable along with doubling my physical RAM. Laptop is used for streaming music and videos, along with Internet and bookkeeping use.READ FULL REVIEW
