CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model CMSX8GX3M2A1600C9
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Speed, and sleek design

Cons: They're not compatible with all laptops, buyer beware!

Other Thoughts: I've tried everything to get these bad boys to run in my Acer Aspire 5733 and I don't know what's causing the problem. I've tried only installing 1 stick or RAM (4GBs), I tried swapping out hard drives, reinstalling Windows, etc but all I get is either a loop on booting Windows or a blue screen so I assume they aren't compatible with my laptop because Windows boots up no problem when the old memory is reinstalled. What's weird is the only difference between the memory that's installed and these Corsair sticks is size and that's it. I made sure my laptop supports 8GBs of RAM before I bought them and everything, the bios sees them just fine but windows still won't boot. I ended up trading these to a friend of mine to avoid returning them and they work no problem for him on his HP DV6.

Pros: This thing is absolutely amazing! You can tell just by looking at it that it would've been a great laptop if the one I had would'nt have messed up so bad.

Cons: I had problems with this thing right out of the box, from the time I pressed the power button to the time I started trying to use this thing. Right out of the box I was having problems with the video card not working properly; the movie/video would start playing but after a while, there would be short pauses kinda like the video/movie was trying to buffer except I wasn't watching them on the internet (later I found out it was doing this to videos on youtube as well). Aside from that though it worked pretty well until I started having problems with the touch sensitive buttons. Ever time I turned the volume down or touch the bottom of the laptop in certain places, my wireless would shut off and I would have to then turn it back on and let it refind the network I was just connected to. I tried everything including recovery to try and fix my problems but nothing worked.

Other Thoughts: I really hate to say this but HP support has been absolutely terrible; if you are having problems like this out of the box, send it back to newegg because when I tried to tell HP what was wrong in both emails and phone calls, they apparently ignored me in both situations; however, they did end up attempting to repair it but they ended up replacing hardware that had nothing to do with my problems and now I'm stuck with a very expensive door stop...thanks HP.

SPARKLE Calibre Series GeForce 9600 GT P960GGBOX 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: This card is definitely impressive; I could tell right out of the box that this card was going to be amazing and believe me, it is, it's much better than the 8600 GT I used to have; and what really had me was the LCD monitor that can display voltage, fan speed, or temperature, or it can cycle through all of them.

Cons: The only thing I can complain about is wings; they don't really make much difference as far as cooling goes. I think they're more for show than anything else but don't let this discourage you from buying this card.

Other Thoughts: Although this card doesn't pack as much of a punch as it's more expensive versions, It still packs a pretty good punch for its price.
