Kingston 64GB microSDXC Flash Card + SD Adapter Model SDC10G2/64GB

4 out of 5 eggs Way faster than they claim! 01/06/2016

This review is from: Kingston 64GB microSDXC Flash Card + SD Adapter Model SDC10G2/64GB

Pros: FAST reads! Specs say 45 MB/s, I got 75.8 MB/s! (Transcend USB 3.0 card reader in USB 3.0 port)
Works well for my 20 Mpix camera

Cons: Not a full con, but ho-hum write speeds of 20 MB/s (Same card reader and port). Since I bought it for a camera, write speeds are kind of important

Other Thoughts: Write speeds are disappointing, but it works still, so no biggie

Transcend TS-RDF5K USB 3.0 Support SDHC (UHS-I), SDXC (UHS-I), microSD, microSDHC (UHS-I), and microSDXC (UHS-I) Flash Card Reader

Pros: USB 3.0
Most SD and MicroSD formats
Looks nice (piano or gloss black, clean rectangular shape)
Works like it should
Feels solid
Cap fits tight enough to not fall off, not so tight you can't get it off.

Cons: Its wider, so it will cover adjacent USB ports on many laptops, BUT I knew this going in, and it would be difficult to make a full size SD card reader that holds the card securely and wasn't an inch wide. No eggs off.

Other Thoughts: Yes. I bought it to offload digital pictures from my camera faster than the included USB 2.0 cord included with the cam, which it does flawlessly. Because of its size however and card slot locations, I wouldn't use it as an everyday flash drive.

Pros: Very fast ram, especially running at 1.6V. Great value for such performance.
Red is the color du jour, and the red heatsink tops on this one makes a presence in my case.
Heatsink top is removable if you need clearance, Clarence.
For my latest board (ASRock 990FX Exteme 9), XMP 1.2 and 1.3 work and test stable using OCCT & Prime95.
You can use the heatsink as weapon if everyone loses power and we go back to the dark ages.

Cons: It didn't work at anywhere near advertised speeds in my previous board: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 rev 3.0. Not only would XMP not work, but I couldn't manually get it close either. Best I could get was somewhere around an 8-9-9 at 1600 (not horrible, but...)

Other Thoughts: Though it certainly should have worked on the Gigabyte board, I'm not holding the performance on the Gigabyte board against this ram. I couldn't get another set of Ram to work on it at advertised speeds either. Didn't really like going above 1600 MHz.
