Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS2K4G3D169DS3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Plug it in and it works, just make sure you get it seated well. I upgraded from 4 gb to 8 gb on Win 10 with a noticeable improvement.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: First attempt at installing, resulted in 8.0 GB installed (4.0 GB usable) Reseated memory sticks and all is good.

Note: Windows 10 notices the new memory and apparently ran a full memory test as the initial boot took close to 5 minutes. All is good now.

5 out of 5 eggs Good way to delay upgrading your AV Amp 01/07/2015

This review is from: KanexPro HDMI to Component with Audio Converter HDRGBRL

Pros: I have an older Plasma TV and a Denon AV amp that does not support HDMI. So to delay buying a new amp and TV, I thought I'd try the KanexPro converter. I plugged in the cables and the power, the picture came in great, but no audio. I found the PC did not automatically send the audio down the HDMI cable. I powered off/on the KanexProUnder and PC recognized the audio. If not under MS Windows, you can go under the Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback and changed the playback setting for the KanexPro.

Cons: Small nit - the red power light is very bright, you'll want to cover it or face it to the wall.

Other Thoughts: If you're hooking up a PC, I'd recommend changing your settings on your PC to make your TV an Extended display, and set the Resolution to the max. It makes the picture much better in my case with a laptop, who display does not support the higher resolution.
