Radioactive "Edition" - not Radioactive line by Mushkin 3/25/2018 8:57:58 AM

Pros: Just purchased and installed this pair of memory modules. Both appear to be fully functional and working great. Purchased to replace my Micron memory, of which one module was dead.

Cons: I wanted to write this review soon after trying out the memory because the "con" of this review is that this product - at least for me - is not what it is advertised to be. I thought I was buying a pair of Radioactive line of memory by Mushkin (since in Newegg's product decription, it is called "Mushkin Enhanced Radioactive 8GB..."). Mushkin advertises on their website the Radioactive line as being just below their top Redline series. When I received the product, I quickly noticed that it was labeled Blackline on the front and back of the product insert, as well as on the stickers on the modules themselves. This item is not of the Radioactive line, but rather it is Blackline memory with the Radioactive design Frostbite heat sinks; a "Radioactive Edition" of the Blackine memory.

Overall Review: Also, I would like to note that at the time of my writing this review, in the most recent published review, written by Christopher B, he states that the product is made in USA. The item I purchased clearly states on the barcode sticker on the back of the packaging, "Made in Mexico". Not a huge deal for me, but wanted others to know that it does not appear this item is made in USA.

Mushkin Memory is a Great Product, BUT Newegg Stockpicking FAIL! 5/8/2016 2:02:26 PM

Pros: I have never had a Mushkin product fail on me ... ever. It's Made in the USA, and the memory performs as advertised. I used this DDR3 memory to upgrade an existing PC to 16 Gb of SDRAM.

Cons: I ordered Mushkin memory with the "radioactive" heatsink; I received the "Blackline Frostbite" edition instead. Whomever the Newegg stock-picker was who fulfilled this order ... FAIL. Better attention to detail was needed here.

Overall Review: This review would have received five eggs, had I received the correct product. I'm not sending back the Mushkin sticks I received, since the return postage isn't worth it, and the received sticks worked perfectly for the upgrade.

Looks good 11/4/2015 12:46:52 AM

Pros: I did a reactor themed PC using these, they look nice inside the machine.

Cons: Mushkin has left a bad taste in my mouth in the past, It's not a direct con, but sometimes I worry about how well any of their hardware stands up to time.
