Pros: - Fast read speeds
- Fast write speeds for files not excessively large
Cons: - DRAM cache-less, uses system ram as a cache
- Write speed drops part way through when transferring very large files
Overall Review: Bought as a scratch drive for video editing. Putting raw recordings on this makes seeking/scrubbing way more responsive than a cheap SATA SSD (with SLC cache)
Pros: - CMR drive
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: Real world file transfer speeds of 100 - 110 MB/s with large files
Pros: - Fast timings
- Max capacity for some store-bought systems
- Huge upgrade from the single 4GB stick with 11-11-11-28 timings
Cons: - Difficulty of removing modules from packaging
Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a store bought mid-range PC looking to upgrade without spending tons of money. Combine this with a GTX 700 series and a beefier power supply to turn that mid-range workstation into a gaming PC.
Pros: This cooler performed rediculously better than the stock cooler. It's easy to install, just a little time consuming.
