G.SKILL 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model F3-8500CL7S-4GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked fine initially.

Cons: Failed after only 18 months and not even heavy use and corrupted my Windows 7 installation beyond repair.

Other Thoughts: Memory should not only work, but should out-live other components in the computer. That his failed in only 18 months tells me G.Skill is cheap and not worth saving a few bucks to risk losing a day and a weekend to trouble-shooting and recovering from the damage caused.

1 out of 5 eggs Not reliable 05/05/2011

This review is from: ASUS GX-D1081 Power-Saving Gigabit Switch

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: This switch has been nothing but a PITA for me.. The switch needs to be reset every day or two. My network is very low traffic, mainly NAT for cable internet, but suddenly the internet will quit working so I unplug the switch's power and plug it back in and everything starts working again. A switch should never need to be reset like this so 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: I buy a lot of Asus products but have never had good experiences with their networking products. Also have a brand new router on my desk that would not get WAN address via DHCP for anything, right out of the box..
