Pros: Flawless operation for 6 months - Best Looking Memory by far! Obviously - the looks have nothing to do with the performance - but it can't hurt either!
Cons: Price is sometimes higher than competition so look for sales. These look like they really put some effort into the design and quality. I have always been totally satisfied with GSkill in the past but these Adatas have an impressive good looks (that I like) besides high quality. The GSkills have a great durability record and I hope that these are also as durable.
Other Thoughts: These sticks just went on sale at Newegg again and I snapped up another set - and they were sold out in hours. Another plus - If you can't decide between all of the hundreds of GSkill models and specs - these Adatas will make your life a lot simpler too.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought a ASRock Z68 motherboard with a Sandy Bridge i5 2500K and GSkill Sniper Memory about 2 or 3 years ago and never had a hint of a problem with it. When I decided to upgrade another desktop I went with the same scenario - ASRock Killer X - Haswell i5 4690 and Sniper memory. The only problem that I ran into was that my CPU fan that I had planned to re-use would not fit the 1150 motherboard. While I was waiting for the new CPU fan from Newegg I actually read the motherboard manual - where I mentioned things like using ONLY the 2 USB 2.0 connectors until the 3.0 drivers are installed - after the board is operational. So don't use the blue USB connectors - unless you want trouble!
Anyway, besides the awesome looks of these boards, the fact is that if they are installed properly, have the correct CPU and memory, they seem to work perfectly from the first time the switch is pushed and keep working.
Cons: Rebate started 2 days after I ordered it - but still a good price considering the competition.
Other Thoughts: Reading the manual or all of these reviews might keep a lot of people from writing bad reviews. If you like a lightning quick boot up - plan on using Windows 8.1 - something not really mentioned until you see the manual.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Never had a problem with any of my ASUS DVD or Blu-Ray
burners. I can't remember ever having a coaster from any of them either.
Cons: Nothing to complain about - even the price.
Other Thoughts: I have had very good luck with ASUS DVD + Blu-Ray burners and ASUS Routers.READ FULL REVIEW
