Meh

Pros: The stick that worked is still in my box. It works at the speed advertised.

Cons: One stick quit working after the first few uses.

Other Thoughts: I never RMA'd the bad stick because I kept the old stuff and it only made a difference of 2GB

First order was defective.

Pros: This RAM is a bit cheaper than other brands, barring sketchy no-name chips straight from China. It looks nice, feels well-made, works like you'd expect RAM to, I suppose.

Cons: Well, the title covers that pretty thoroughly. I was putting the finishing touches on my new PC, and Windows wouldn't stop blue screening after I installed it. I figured out that it was the RAM causing the blue screening, so I sent it back and got a good set of chips. The exchange was easy enough, but it sucked to wait because a company couldn't ensure that their product worked when it left the factory. I tend to receive a lot of defective components, it seems.

Defective pair...

Pros: Not much to like when neither would function. I guess the heat-spreaders look nice?

Cons: Both sticks faulty. Everything was properly configured in the BIOS, and a set of the same purchased previously functions fine in the same system with the same configuration. Both new sticks together, system failed to boot with a lockup at windows load half of the time, other attempts resulted in memory-related BSOD.

Tested separately, one stick would result in sporadic BSOD's and would rarely make it to post, the other tested alone would allow for loading of windows but repeatedly resulted in windows installation corruption (missing system32 files, windows explorer hangs and failures, running any memory-intensive software or games resulted in BSOD and/or restart loops). Eventually I swapped these sticks out and replaced with the original ones, and at that point windows *still* would not load and I needed to spend most of the day re-installing and re-configuring windows due to what I can only assume was a corrupt installation due to this RAM.

I attempted every configuration, played with timings and voltages to rule that out, and in the end the system is back up and running fine and 100% stable with the original set of this RAM which I purchased years back. Either or both of these sticks introduced in any arrangement with or without the old set results in telltale symptoms of faulty RAM.

Windows memtest passed, memtest86 threw errors immediately and that was enough for me to pull them out, too bad that they corrupted windows on the way out of the system.

Maybe bad luck, but when offered a warranty replacement through the manufacturer I opted to not have a replacement of the same, but am instead going to try a slightly more expensive (but seemingly also more reliable) manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: -I would not recommend this product to other people. Mushkin was a favored brand of mine for many years, but based on my own experience and what I've been reading, quality and consistency of DOA's seem to be looking pretty dim.

-I've had an SSD from Mushkin die within 1.5-2 years, which is not very good for a rather expensive drive that was used pretty lightly. In addition to this, the first set of Mushkin RAM that I've ordered in a long time is DOA. I have cold feet, going with another company. Maybe bad luck, but I don't plan on taking my chances with the same company again, at least for a long while.

-Newegg support was fantastic in assisting me, as this build is for a client and it's a bit time-sensitive. Hugely disappointing experience, the blow was softened considerably by Newegg offering to make an exception and allow an RMA which normally would be refused due to lack of original packaging. Thank you Newegg, this is why I shop here.

Product DOA - Second attempt 1 of 2 sticks DOA

Pros: None

Cons: First 2 sticks and 1 of 2 of second attempt - Memory DOA - obviously not tested just packaged and shipped.
Really disappointing for what was once a well regarded name in the memory industry.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this to anyone - other than someone I really didn't like and wanted to cause frustration in their life.

Great Memory from a Great Company

Pros: Works as expected
Mushkin's customer service was excellent

Cons: One stick was DOA, but Mushkin came through in the end.

Other Thoughts: I bought one set for a new build and had trouble loading an OS. I removed a stick of RAM to discover that was the issue and contacted Mushkin (their ticket system works well) to get it replaced. Within 24 hours they replied and gave me the info I needed to send it out for a replacement. I bought the second set to keep my rig running while I mailed out the first set. I received the replacements in about a week. So I'm happy. Excellent product and great service.

5/ 5

Pros: Works as advertised and a good upgrade from my previous 8GB. I did run into a hiccup where only 14 of the 16GB, I bought, was available but I just resat the RAM and that fixed my problem.

Cons: I need to type something here.

Other Thoughts: I've bought this product before, a few years ago for a different build, and I knew this RAM would be reliable so I came back for more.
