Most Favorable Review

Great overclocking ram

SUPER TALENT 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model T800UX2GC4
SUPER TALENT 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model T800UX2GC4

Pros: I can set this ram as low as 1.8V and still get 4-4-3-8 timings, or set it at the standard 2.2 and get the same timings up to 960! I haven't tried going any higher due to my CPU, but I'll follow up when I can

Cons: None

Overall Review: I had to manually set the timings in my bios, but that is more of a motherboard issue

Most Critical Review

Great when it's working

Crucial Adrenaline CT050M4SSC2BDA 50GB Solid State Cache for Windows 7-based PCs
Crucial Adrenaline CT050M4SSC2BDA 50GB Solid State Cache for Windows 7-based PCs

Pros: Really fast start up times for both booting into windows and opening programs. From the login screen it almost instantaneously shows all my desktop icons and loads up every program.

Cons: Whenever the computer fails to be properly shutdown (ie a crash, or holding down the power button) it has to "restore the cache map", which takes more than 24 hours (I don't know because it's never completed for me) with no progress bar or any indication of how far along it is.

Overall Review: The dataplex software should just allow us to remove everything from the cache and start from scratch instead of trying (and usually failing) to restore the cache. This is a very serious problem an needs to be worked out. It is unfortunate that this occurs, because this is a 5-star product when it's working correctly.

SUPER TALENT 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model T800UX4GC5

Pros: Great RAM

Cons: none

Overall Review: It will only show up as 3.25GB on a 32-bit OS because that is a limitation of 32bit. This would happen for any RAM, you need 64bit to go over 3.25GB
