Pros: It worked in my friends older Dell Inspiron 610 laptop just fine. Boost in speed from 512meg to 2gb was very noticeable.
Cons: Crucial is notorious for selling bum sticks here and there, but so far, so good. Had to remove keyboard on the laptop to install a DIMM, but thats Dells fault.
Overall Review: A great buy if you're not looking to upgrade your older laptop just yet.
Pros: yes, it does transfer a a very fast rate. awesome for huge files. being made out of metal (instead of plastic) is great.
Cons: the orange LED is very bright. the opening only takes the supplied lanyard - not a keychain.
Overall Review: this would be a 5 egg flash drive, but not being able to put it on my keychain knocks it down.
Pros: Dropped in my newly bought Sony Vaio laptop. Works perfectly, with no problems. Oh, did I mention they cost a LOT less than buying from sony?
Cons: Only wish I could put more than 4gb in my laptop...... Make breakfast? Oh - I bought it here for less than it is now.
Overall Review: My laptop came with only 2gb of memory. Waiting for Vista to load took forever. With this, it boots right up. Thanks Newegg !
Pros: Nice to see ASUS' reps trying to put good reviews next to their product.....
Cons: The "memory remap feature" does not work! This is not an operating system flaw, it is 100% motherboard related! Nowhere on Newegg.com or ASUS' crummy website does it say that you will get less than 3gb of RAM available, even if you're using 4gb worth of RAM! REPEAT: it's not OS related, it's strictly the motherboard!
Overall Review: ASUS doesn't say this anywhere, won't admit it, and then tries to cover it up by saying its' the users fault!
Pros: Well, it's cheap. Capacitors look like they can handle any voltage you put through it. It's small. Started on first try. Bundled software underclocks the cpu when power isn't needed. 6 USB's are nice. Can run RAID. Ran my E8400 out of the box, which Abit doesn't care to offer - yet.
Cons: Have to warn people - DONT buy four 1gb RAM chips! It will recognize less than three, even WITH a 64-bit OS! Asus didn't care to answer why this was so.
Also - yes, don't buy a Zalman or other big cpu cooler - unless you have an XL size case, which I had. In my thermaltake armor, I routed it to the side of the cooler, which was lucky.
Overall Review: Has some very annoying flaws, but has some potential to overclock. Worry about support from ASUS.
Pros: Keeps the CPU super-cool: My E8400 Wolfdale (at stock 3.0ghz) runs at 29C idle and goes up to only 40C playing Crysis after an hour. Can't wait to see it OC'd. Can be pointed up, down, left, right - mine's pointed to the left, where it shoots hot air straight out the back of my Thermaltake Armor.
Cons: It's big - yes, other reviews say it, but it's BIG. Don't drop this in a small case. This one is a copper/aluminum alloy - all copper has, in theory, better heat reducing capability.
Overall Review: The green LED looks cool!
