Pros: none

Cons: One stick came bad. I ordered 16GB which cost around 200 bucks. You would think that for what you pay you are entitled to a working product. Or at least one that wont give you so much trouble. It took me so long to figure out what was going on with this system build I went over the 30 day RMA period and couldn't get me money back. One stick slowly failed after a few weeks. Then gave me errors during windows installation. It took me a long time to figure out what was going on. I tried on different brand boards types an different CPUs and hard drives thinking that there was issues else where. All along was a stick of ram that would boot on any board yet cause software corruption. I really hate you corsair. I think you are really bad people. Do you have any idea how much time you wasted of mine? Ripping apart my computer over and over? Playing the mail game sending parts back and fourth to newegg was hell.

Other Thoughts: Well 3 stick out of 4 isn't bad. But when they go bad it can be hell trying to figure out what was going on. I hate corsair!

1 out of 5 eggs Complete epic fail in everyway... 09/19/2013

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-A75-UD4H FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I can't believe this field is even a requirement. Proceed to the cons for the real story.

Cons: Not 1 DOA... But 2 DOAs! Two DOAs... I can't believe it. I was without a computer for 2 months playing the mail game trying to get this stuff sent back and fourth. Just to keep being disappointed. The funny thing was that they boards booted fine. There was massive software corruption stemming from the SATA ports. Updating bios to F7 did nothing both times. The first board slowly failed. The second was a failure right out the box. I will be staying away from GIGABYTE at this point. I should of just went intel like everyone was saying. This is what you get when you go budget.

Other Thoughts: Rip off!

Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9500420ASG 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have had no issues with my drive. Been going strong for more then a year. People are experiencing a click noise issue with recommendations on the Dell website to update the firmware. I didn't do so because I don't have those issues. I also just bought another drive just like it for my other laptop. I'm sure it will be fine as well. I think a lot of the failures had to do with the click of death coming out of no where. But like I said I have had no issues and the drive is excellent and I bought another that showed up and works just fine as well!

Cons: None really. I think that they firmware issues are probably fixed and that I should be fine. If you getting the clicking noise issue then update the firmware for it and that will fix the controller on the drive and hopefully straiten out the head.

Other Thoughts: Best of luck to you guys!
