Pros: Worked right out of the box when set XMP via motherboard toggle switch on my ASUS z97 Deluxe. Default it clocked to DDR3 1333 spec @ 1.5v.
Previously I was running 16GB DDR3 1866, so I don't expect this to increase my gaming FPS.
My main motivation for upgrading to 32GB was the cheap price, and it will help when I'm running multiple vmware images. I can now dedicate more ram to each of them.
All in all, no compatibility issues here. Make sure you have a motherboard capable of higher DDR3 speeds.
I ran a quick 20min test of prime95 with no memory or system issues.
Cons: No real con, but initially I had a reboot loop pre POST. I solved it by switching to the XMP profile via a hardware switch on the z97 Deluxe motherboard I'm using.
I'd recommend you default your previous memory settings if you're upgrading an existing system with custom memory settings as it was in my case.

The motherboard memory qualified vendors list doesn't list this part number directly, but instead lists F3-2400C11Q-32GXM(XMP) - which has the same exact timings and voltage at this 32GB kit part number - F3-2400C11Q-32GSR.
This review is from: Lite-On EBAU108 External DVD-Writer - Black
Pros: - Uses single USB for power & data!
- No glossy fingerprint magnet plastic.
- M-Disc support if you like that sort of thing.
- Average sound vibration
- Very light
Cons: - plastic feels cheap... but seems strong. It's supposed to emulate brushed aluminum. Not bad I guess.
- Very short USB cable included...It's about 5 inches.
Other Thoughts: Let's hope it lasts, I'll use this drive to boot isos I have around rather than USB flash boot, especially on older hardware that doesn't do USB flash boot well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's fast. I get more or less the advertised numbers. I've had this running as my boot drive for Win7 for about 8 months now. It has not presented any issues.
Cons: Used Acronis 2012 to clone my original drive.
Other Thoughts: I also have a 512gb M4, a 840 256gb Samsung, and an 240gb Daytona, and to be honest for regular desktop apps like office, lightroom, and web browsers, I can't really notice the difference in speed.
I only have about 90gb used on this drive :p
