Pros: I've been running 4 of these stick in my computer for very nearly 3 years without a single error. Overclocked well to 1800MHz on 10-10-10-26 timings and 1.35V. Overall I'm actually quite impressed, especially since the OC was achieved at 0.15V below the 1.5V rating, and barely any change to the timings. Truly impressive, G.Skill.
Cons: Only rated for 1333MHz, but considering it overclocked to 1800MHz with nary a change in timings, I'm not really sure this is a con.
Other Thoughts: If you want RAM that can achieve 1800MHz stably, and don't feel like spending another $10 per stick, I would recommend this in a heartbeat. I haven't attempted anything higher than 1800MHz, and don't plan to. Frankly, just having a full dual channel kit at 1333MHz should suffice for whatever it is you're doing, whether it be gaming, virtualization, whatever. This RAM should last you years. However, for future-proofing, I would highly recommend getting at LEAST 8GB.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Raspberry Pi 83-14421 Computer - Model B (512M RAM)
Pros: Incredibly easy to get running with Raspbian, streams 1080p video flawlessly, and has a near-infinite number of uses.
Cons: None. At all.
Other Thoughts: I see a lot of complaints that it's "underpowered." It's not. It's a $35 fully-functioning computer. The key here is $35. This thing is more than you should expect to get out of $35.
Also, the Pi is available through a number of other retailers for $35. For some, shipping might make it more expensive than Newegg, for others it'll be cheaper. Just check out alliedelec.com or element14.com ; both a reputable retailers and offer the pi at $35, however neither offer free shipping.
Pros: Absolute powerhouse. Renders everything I've thrown at it beautifully and far faster than any previous card I've used. As previously stated, it will struggle at 15GB+, but I rarely get projects that large anyway. Chews through videos rendered with Sony Vegas Pro 8, getting roughly 350fps with 1080p video. Not shabby at all.
Cons: Certainly not meant to be in SLI. Productivity dropped with 2 cards.
NOT FOR GAMING!!
