SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3D/US
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I read all the reviews about how amazingly overclockable this RAM is. I couldn't believe that it was really as good as all the reviews but it IS! These are very low-profile and will fit under any heatsink. They run cool, too.

Cons: Not as flashy-looking as RAM with heatspreaders (but this RAM doesn't need heatspreaders, even overclocked).

Not free?

Other Thoughts: Running this @ 2133mhz 9-9-9-24 1T 1.5V. I'm sure it could go to 2400mhz if only my motherboard allowed it.

OCZ Solid 2 Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast drive, great price/performance ratio (for a SSD), reliable Indilinx controller. Huge upgrade from any mechanical drive.

Cons: Not as fast as some Indilinx drives due to relatively slow memory. SSDs in general are dramatically faster than mechanical drives, but there still is some waiting for boot and for launching of large applications.

Other Thoughts: 60gb with Windows 7 makes this a great drive for both your OS and your collection of most-used programs. However, it is probably not enough to install all applications that many enthusasts will have Install these less-used apps on a separate drive and all will be fine. Of course, also keep huge audio/video collections on a cheap mechanical drive. This had great price/performance ratio at the price I bought it at, but this isn't the fastest SSD on the block so be sure to shop around.

Crucial 512MB 144-Pin SO-DIMM PC 133 Laptop Memory Model CT64M64S4W75

5 out of 5 eggs Crucial works good like memory should 08/26/2008

This review is from: Crucial 512MB 144-Pin SO-DIMM PC 133 Laptop Memory Model CT64M64S4W75

Pros: Popped it in and it works perfectly in an old G4 iMac. Going from 512mb to 1gb breathes new life into the old beast.

Cons: $75 is pricey for 512mb of RAM, but when it's old-school PC-133 SODIMM, what are you going to do?
