eh, its 'ok'
Pros: it does read and write dvds sometimes
Cons: bought a couple of these, getting 1 out of 10 dvd burn issues. Obviously quality control by ASUS has gone way down hill. And for the price of the media I guess its not even worth the effort to RMA. Avoid ASUS, if you want quality go elsewhere.
BSOD after a year
Pros: This memory stick started failing after a year. I ran full diagnostics on the computer and it kept failing at the memory. Then all of a sudden the computer booted up OK and stayed on Windows 7 x64 for many months. All of a sudden last week the computer crashed with a BSOD, ran the tests and memory again fails. Starting an RMA to gskill...
Cons: well looks like the postage will be a good amount of the cost of buying a new memory stick. If the manufacturer truly backed their product they would pay for the shipping back on their account and even offer an advanced RMA where there is a credit card hold for the memory in the event you don't ship the part back.
Overall Review: For shame on G-Skill for a poor RMA process.
keeps going and going and....
Pros: by far the best thermal compound I have used. Arctic Silver has never done me wrong on over 100 installs!
Cons: absolutely no cons on this product
Overall Review: I have purchased several of these over the past couple years, always change out the stock Intel goop for this on new desktop and server builds.
Dead after a day
Pros: NONE. AVOID HITACHI!!!!!!!!!!!!! (also should be avoiding western digital as those have been getting a lot of DOA recently from my experiences)
Cons: The RMA through Hitachi was HORRIBLE. There was no advanced RMA option, so I had to send the drive out, and had to wait weeks to get a new one because it was shipped from Singapore!
Overall Review: I should have done an RMA through Newegg, but wanted to see how Hitachi support was since I purchased several of these for a NAS. I have had lots of RMA issues with Western Digital drives over the past several months also, seems to me Seagate has been holding its own on my desktops and servers....
