Other Thoughts: I transferred 4GB of music files from my SSD to this Flash Drive, it took 36 seconds, and a few of the music files were ~ 30 minutes long, the rest were normal length.
Although slower than spec, it does not get "hot" as some have reported, possibly due in part because there is an exhaust fan in my medium tower case adjacent to the SanDisk Extreme Pro, and the Pro is running at a slower than spec speed.
Pros: One stick was very fast. Passed Memtest 86+ with no problems at 1866, no matter what memory slot it was in.
Cons: The second stick DOA.
I ran Memtest 86+ on the second stick and there were MANY hundreds of errors within less then 10 seconds. I put both sticks on a shelf and it they are still there - unusable. -- Can't have dual channel with one stick...
Other Thoughts: I tried all of the normal check proceedures, such as running one stick at a time in each of the four RAM slots, I went so far as to turn the speed down.
The stick that failed would run at 1600 but not 1866. I paid a lot of money for this RAM at time of purchase and expected better.
Also, I became very ill soon after the purchase and I have had this RAM too long to return it to Newegg.
I have built more computers than I can remember. And, I am simply disappointed with this "higher quality" RAM.
Pros: Same as 11 Months ago.
Cons: I forgot to mention:
Same as 11 Months ago, except -- it does get hot when I listen to music from it for a few hours.
Also, gets hot when not being used in my front USB 2.0 slots. When in my rear USB 3.0 and not being used it gets warm but not hot.
Other Thoughts: I have 3 of these and they all run the same speed and have been reliable, except for getting too hot when being used in a USB 3.0 slot, or any to no use in a front USB 2.0 slot.
