Pros: purchased for my ASUS g750 laptop, that I purchased with a standard 5400rpm disk, and the free migration tool works great with some tweeking, which I will explain later, but after the transfer, I had no issues with the system accepting the new drive, and my system now boots up in less then 10 seconds.
Other Thoughts: the only problem I ran into was with intels free migration tool, and the problem only came because asus created on the factory 1TB harddrive, an OS partition and a data partition, and the program doesn't allow you to not copy a drive partition, if there are 2 partitions on the disk, it has to create 2 partitions, with a minimum size of 80MB. To get around this, I simply had to delete the data partition in disk manager, which allowed me to ignore that space to create 1 system partition and then the other system recovery partitions asus had.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: great memory, never had any problems, especially with G.skill. Replacing 4 gig kit of 6400 from original MOBO build. (memory was still good, but i switched motherboards/processor and used the old one to build another system to use as a server, so i had to buy memory and thought, might as well buy the faster memory for my new mobo)
Cons: none so far, unless you count the price. ( i dream of the day were state of the art memory is only $10 a gig, but we all know that will never happen)
Other Thoughts: Purchased to replace my 6400 kit from a 3.2 ghz Pentim D build to a 3.0ghz core 2 quad build and since i had to purchase a set of memory for the server, decide to get the higher speed since my new board supported it and the old didn't.
Also, i never OC'ed, but that is because any bios changes i make caused my post to fail so I have to reset all changes made. I don't know why I have this problem, but it isn't a result of the memory.

This review is from: Microsoft XBOX 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
Pros: Great HD viewing for Netflix
Cons: Would NOT work with media center on Windows 7 Pro 64 streaming, i would try to select a music playlist and the connection would drop with the router in the other room with at most 2 thin walls between. Purchased after christmas returned within the week.
Other Thoughts: I am using a draft N netgear single band router, so its most likely that the issue was with my routers N protocols and not the adapter, which is why i didn't mark it to low, because HD wireless was great for netflixREAD FULL REVIEW
