G.SKILL Ripjaws 32GB (4 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1866 Laptop Memory Model F3-1866C11Q-32GRSL

Pros: If you opt for this when spec'ing out your new iMac it will cost you an additional $600 (slightly less with an education discount). Other vendors have this upgrade for ~250 but Newegg has the best price by far at ~159.

Upgrading the existing was easy (it is the only user replaceable item in the iMac,,.well one that doesn't void the warranty). Booted up like a champ and I have been flying around Lightroom & Photoshop since. If you are on the fence, just do it.

I have to give wicked props to the G.Skill online chat available through Newegg. They were quick to respond and let me know what I needed to order to work with the iMac. Thanks again

Cons: None what so ever.

Pros: Ordered four of these for my diskless Pegasus2 R4 I picked up. I popped them into the disk trays and they all spun up and I went to work initializing my RAID5 setup. Many hours later I was greeted with a wicked fast RAID5 array and have been loving it ever since. I would have no hesitation on purchasing these drives ever again. I will be ordering some more for some spares.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Props to Newegg on their packaging. I have been ordering from them for numerous years and this was by far the best packaged drive set I have received from them!

Intel 525 Series Lincoln Crest SSDMCEAC090B301 mSATA 90GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I just popped this into my Drobo 5N and it is off and working it's magic. I lean towards Intel for their SSD quality and have never had any regrets.

This drive isn't officially listed on Drobo's site as compatible but I took a gamble and it paid off.

Cons: None but I will report back if this changes
