Silicon Power 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model SP008GLSTU160N02NE
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Compatible when paired with another factory installed 8GB module on my laptop even though it the factory memory was 3 years older and an entirely different brand and manufacturer. This was surprising and welcome!

Having both DIMMMs filled made my laptop snappier and I turned off the page-file since 16GB is plenty. You could turn off page file with 8GB but might have "out of memory" errors sometimes.

Going from 8 to 16GB made my laptop noticeably faster.

Cons: Rigid clamshell plastic packaging is always a pain to open.

Other Thoughts: If you're planning to upgrade, use CPU-Z software to verify that you have a free RAM slot. If it's going to be a 2nd stick of RAM, the other should probably be "CAS# Latency 11" (CL11) and "dual rank".

My laptop came with two SO-DIMM banks and one of them was empty. The other had an 8GB Hyundai HMT41GS6AFR8A-PB manufactured in 2013.

I was pleasantly surprised that this new module, which was manufactured in 2016 (3 years later), was 100% compatible with it.

I ran Windows Memory Diagnostics after installation just to be sure it was solid and it was.

Test System: Lenovo Flex2 with Intel Core i7 4510U

Silicon Power 64GB Jewel J80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP064GBUF3J80V1T)

5 out of 5 eggs Waterproof, Tiny, and Stylish 09/27/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 64GB Jewel J80 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP064GBUF3J80V1T)

Pros: Truly waterproof. Vigorously ran it under water, shook it off, plugged it in 10 seconds later and it worked immediately.

Very slick design. It's a tiny little thing and the seamless zinc housing make it a sturdy, stylish, and smooth device.

This is probably the sturdiest (and best looking) flash drive I've used.

Comes pre-formatted in a single 60.0GB FAT32 partition. None of that U3 file system, auto-start crud.

Lifetime warranty but doubtful you'll ever need it. Seems very reliable.

Cons: Fairly slow to the point USB2.0 and USB3.0 read and write speeds are exactly the same.

No LED indicator

The little ring would be more useful if it had a way to detach it from your keys.

Other Thoughts: Became warm on read tests and almost hot on write tests.

I'm pretty sure this is a 64GB microSD card in a slick USB case.

I can see anyone who fishes, hikes, camps, or works around water using this. It's rugged and truly waterproof.

22.5MB/s average Write speed

36.6MB/s average Read speed
40.4MB/s burst Read speed

Silicon Power 128GB Elite microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter, Speed Up to 75MB/s (SP128GBSTXBU1V20NE)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Significantly faster than internal memory when installed in a lower-end Samsung phone. The phone is now much smoother and no longer getting, "photos will soon fail to save" warning.

Best value and performance for price than any other microSD card of this size.

With the increased performance and enormous capacity, I won't have to buy a new phone now, which will save me hundreds of dollars.

When installed in a SD slot on my laptop using the included adapter, HD Tach reports read speeds of 63MB/s burst and 51.7MB/s average and 0.7ms random access. This is pretty good for an SD card.

Copying a 100GB file to the microSD card averaged about 20MB/s the whole time.

Cons: It's not a con for the card, but Android doesn't let you transfer apps to the SD card. Only saved files and photos/videos.

If I could transfer the installed apps to this card, they would probably run smoother, too.

Other Thoughts: Check to make sure your phone can support 128GB microSD. Many phones only support 64GB so don't spend more than you have to.

For installing in a phone, just insert it, format when prompted, then transfer the files from internal to SD memory in the storage settings. This can take a while but once done, it's done.
