Pros: Works fine in (see title)! Tried couple sets of another major brand which is usually reliable but those didn't work at all. Either defective or the Mac being fussy! Returned them to the big mail order outfit in WA state! These G.SKILL are cheaper than those even with sales tax so I'm a happy camper! Debating getting another set for mid-2010 MacBook Pro 13".
Cons: None with the product... only that the shipping process used a middleman to deliver to USPS which took forever and would appear to be unnecessary to travel the 17 miles from warehouse to my door.
Other Thoughts: I used G.SKILL before in older PCs & they seem to be as good as any while a bit less expensive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Socketed in no problem & running stable so far in a new build using JEDEC standard timings (5-5-5-18). @ 1.8V.
Cons: None yet... don't expect any... they are Mushkin!
Other Thoughts: Gonna let my build settle in before I tweak the timings. Will leave voltage alone. This is my second set of Mushkin, with my other set (Silver Line) running great long term FSB OC'd with no issues. Will report if anything sad develops!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GeIL 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Laptop Memory Model GX2S6400-2GB
Pros: About as fast as you are gonna get in a SODIMM format. Low latencies at all speeds programmed in SPD at standard voltage.
Cons: None, except memory of all types has been getting rather more expensive lately!
Other Thoughts: People complaining about heat probably compare to slower speed stuff... all my memory runs hot! I don't expect any issues long term beyond normal failure risk. There is the warranty though!
I did notice that the chip packaging is smaller than my other memory which may affect how the heat is dissipated but not the total amount of heat generated.
