Most Favorable Review

Excellent value and performance for Late 2015 27" 5k iMac

G.SKILL Ripjaws 32GB (4 x 8GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1866 Laptop Memory Model F3-1866C11Q-32GRSL
G.SKILL Ripjaws 32GB (4 x 8GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1866 Laptop Memory Model F3-1866C11Q-32GRSL

Pros: Installed in a Late 2015 27" 5k iMac, incredible value and performance. Installation was very easy, completed in just a few minutes. The RAM works flawlessly.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this to a friend and would purchase again. I have used G.SKILL RAM in a number of MacBook and iMac computers, and it has always performed wonderfully, it's a brand that I trust.

Most Critical Review

Decent board for the price

ECS NFORCE3-A 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 ATX AMD Motherboard
ECS NFORCE3-A 754 NVIDIA nForce3 250 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Cost, bought as part of a bundle with Sempron 3100+.

Cons: ATX Power connector goes right over the CPU fan and does not push down all the way because there is a tiny capacitor in the way. The placement of the IDE connections is terrible. Only 2 3-pin fan jumpers. The motherboard was NOT compatible with my Matrox G400 AGP video card.

Overall Review: I bought this as part of a bundle with a Sempron 3100+. Overall the board is working great. I had read all the reviews and prepared by downloading the Nvidia chipset drivers prior to installing the motherboard so there were no problems there. My Matrox G400 video card caused the system to reboot when the video card was put in higher than VGA resolution - others have seen similar results with Matrox cards. I would have definitely bought a different board though if this wasn't part of the bundle, but now that it's working ok I'm satisfied.

Works great in my BB Pearl

Pros: Price, speed

Cons: None

Overall Review: I bought this to use in my Blackberry Pearl 8130 and it works flawlessly.

Works great in my Macbook

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model F2-5300PHU2-2GBSA
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model F2-5300PHU2-2GBSA

Pros: I bought this to use in my MacBook with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo based on the fact that 2 previous reviews had good luck with MacIntel products. So far I am very satisfied with the performance.

Cons: None

Overall Review: This is an excellent dual-channel memory setup in a Mac. It's certainly much more cost effective than buying the upgrade from the manufacturer.

Great RAM for the price

Patriot 1GB DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model PEP1G3200LL
Patriot 1GB DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model PEP1G3200LL

Pros: Low latency CL2.0 high-performance DDR at a great price.

Cons: Patriot Memory technical support informed me that sometimes they allow their memory to pass quality assurance testing at higher voltages, sometimes as high as 2.8V. It is expected that with overclocking or a dual channel setup you might need to bump the DRAM voltage up, but with a single channel setup, there is no reason it shouldn't run stable at the nominal 2.6V as advertised.

Overall Review: The original module I received was very unstable. The computer would reboot randomly after only a few minutes of use. By bumping the DRAM voltage up to 2.8V I was able to get the system to run stable. I contacted tech support and they suggested that for a single channel setup that the RAM should work at 2.6V without a problem. Newegg quickly RMA'd the defective RAM and the new module is working great at 2.6V.
