5 out of 5 eggs Awesome product & running great since September 2012 02/25/2014

This review is from: G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR

Pros: -low profile (interference with hyper 212 evo was my concern, worked perfectly tho)
-no heat issues
-purchased in september 2012 and been using them every day since with no issues.
-xmp profile has them running @1866
-was looking for a step up from 1600 to match the money I put into getting a gigabyte z77x ud5h over a lower quality mobo
-price. $55 with free shipping and i got a free 4gb micro sd card that I actually use
-packaging was secure but also simple, two wonderful concepts that should always be together

Cons: none to think of

Other Thoughts: my mobo runs these @1600 perfectly fine as well.
When i bought this ram in 2012, the reviews were great. Now it is almost march 2014 and the reviews are even better. G.Skill made a magnificent product here, will definitely be a repeat customer when i can afford to build another computer
I am very glad i bought ram when i did.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -faster than advertised = 502write /515read max (see other thoughts)
-easy install w/ screws included (includes adhesive bracket to fit in 9mm? space if you need it, i did not)
- good price = $70.99 shipped (shipping was 99 cents)
- runs cool
- no issues, ran on first boot and had a smooth as butter w8 install

Cons: not really a con, but not a pro either to me- heavy duty plastic packaging was a pain to remove (pro to others maybe? I love seeing a company protect their products, but this was excessive in my opinion)
-eggsaver costing more than the 3 day shipping used to. Come on Newegg....
- doesn't include free ice cream coupon?

Other Thoughts: Helpful: My actual drive capacity for use was about 111GB. But that runs true for any storage drive, whether ssd or hdd. i knew that so i do not mind one bit. You should also know this if you are buying any storage drive, please stop getting mad about it :)
Maybe helpful?: I was using crystal disk mark getting ridiculously slow speeds for this ssd on a sata3 port on my gigabyte z77x ud5h and was starting to doubt buying an ssd, then thinking i need a new mobo... you know the drill when you think something is broke. well an hour later I get atto disk benchmark out of frustration. Found out crystal disk mark is worthless for all my drives, including 3 other HDD (all that fretting for 6 months about why my drives were slow....)
Max speeds on Intel z77 chipset Sata3 for Kingston v300 SSDnow 120gb running ATTO Disk Benchmark default test:
Write: 502MB/sec max
Read: 515MB/sec max
Advertised on packaging - 450MB/sec read/write max

definitely not helpful: My Rig (she's a beaut):
-rosewill blackhawk mid tower case (replaced all fans this year with cougar brand 'silent' fans, 3x 120mm & 1x 140mm) *wonderful quality case if you need air cooling with space for a big gpu and everything else*
-i5 3570k OC'd to 4Ghz / 4.2 on turbo w/ seidon 120m
-msi gtx 560ti 448 core (OC'd and still kicking)
-gigabyte z77x ud5h mobo
-g.skill 8gb 1866 ram
