SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E500B/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast Fast Fast. Multi-tasks well. Long-ish warranty. Put it in and go.
Just about spot on speeds. Top 10 performance on nearly every benchmark, at less than $0.38/GB

Cons: Not an 850 Pro. Doesn't tuck me in at night.

Other Thoughts: When these drives go on sale, they cost nearly the same as the mainstream drives, for top-end performance. I spent too much time looking at benchmarks and watching for deals, only to come back to the Samsungs. There were other drives that would pop up here and there, but you can save yourself a lot of research if you just get this drive.

Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model TLYD38G2133HC10QDC01
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: (Was) inexpensive. Overclocks as advertised. So far very stable. Gold looks good on a black motherboard

Cons: Not as affordable as it was.

Other Thoughts: Installed to 1600 default, but opted for XMP #1 in BIOS (advertised speeds) and voila.

Installed on ASRock FM2A78M ITX+ with A10-6800K. I was astounded by the speed difference between 1600 CL9 (stock) and 2133 CL11(ish, cause its 10-12-12...). It does bump the heat a few degrees too, but that makes sense since the proc spends less time at idle waiting for data from memory.
