Most Favorable Review

They work!!

Patriot Viper 4 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Extreme Performance Memory, Black Sides / Red Top Model PV416G300C6K
Patriot Viper 4 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Extreme Performance Memory, Black Sides / Red Top Model PV416G300C6K

Pros: My mobo read these and so far so good!!

Cons: None at the moment.

Overall Review: These were on my motherboard compatibility list and all is good. I tried to install another ddr4 memory that was not on the compatibility list and the mobo would not post.

Most Critical Review

USB 3.0 Flash Drive

SanDisk 256GB Ultra CZ48 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 100MB/s (SDCZ48-256G-U46)
SanDisk 256GB Ultra CZ48 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 100MB/s (SDCZ48-256G-U46)

Pros: It is faster than a 2.0 USB Flash Drive. Large capacity @ 256gb. Price is OK I guess.

Cons: Not as fast as an external SSD drive. I should have bought that instead.

Overall Review: If you don't mind the slow speed compared to a external SSD than this is probably a good buy for you.

Good Quality Motherboard

ASRock X570 PG VELOCITA AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X570 PG VELOCITA AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This mobo is heavy and solid, feels like quality parts are used. Face plate is molded on which makes it easier to install. With my components it is fast.

Cons: No e-sata plug in. I have a pc case with an e-sata cable. (probably never use it but would of been nice to have one). Almost plug and play. Windows load time takes about 25 seconds after I turn on the computer.

Overall Review: I installed the mobo and all components in my pc case before testing and guess what it would not post. I got 3 digital debug numbers. Got in contact with Asrock tech and they told me to take out memory and video card and start mobo with only the cpu and restart. I noticed the digital debug numbers were different this time. Then I installed memory, and again digital debugs were different. Then I installed the video card and the digital debug numbers were different again. That did the trick. I got post and everything is working fine. I'm guessing the bios are set up so that it has to register 1 thing at a time. The parts I use: AMD Ryzen 5800X Patriot Viper memory 16gb (2x8) GeForce GTX 1050 TI. (I don't use this for gaming except for Facebook games and didn't want to spend too much on a video card) I am satisfied with this product and would recommend.

ADATA Swordfish 1TB PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280, 3D-NAND Internal Solid State Drive

Pros: Plug and play. Installed this in my laptop after I took out the slow bloated hdd, popped in a windows 10 dvd and everything installed perfectly.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Though not as fast as other SSD's, my laptop loads a lot faster. I am satisfied.

Patriot Memory

Patriot Viper Steel 8GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Laptop Memory Model PVS48G240C5S
Patriot Viper Steel 8GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Laptop Memory Model PVS48G240C5S

Pros: Plug and play. Installed with no problems and my laptop performance is a lot better now.

Cons: None

Overall Review: My laptop only had 4 gigs of memory and everything would load so slowly. I took that out and installed 2 of these 8 gigs for a total of 16 gigs and now my laptop is performing way better.

SSD Mounting Bracket

2.5 to 3.5 Adapter SSD Mounting Bracket 25 to 35 Hard Drive Adapter 2 Pack SA04004
2.5 to 3.5 Adapter SSD Mounting Bracket 25 to 35 Hard Drive Adapter 2 Pack SA04004

Pros: All the holes lined up perfectly. All screws and screwdriver included.

Cons: Was missing one of the cushioning washers. Took off 1 egg for that.

Overall Review: Happy with the purchase but did not use the cushioning washers because the package was missing 1.
