Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT51264BC1339
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs 16GB of rock solid stability (with two) :P 01/13/2011

This review is from: Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT51264BC1339

Pros: Inexpensive, Stable, Delightful :)

Cons: Newegg's pricing isn't as amazing on this product as it is on others.

Other Thoughts: Purchased this with some trepidation after stumbling across those odd apple UK forum posts about the 27" iMac i7 not supporting 16GB without bizarre lock-up issues...

I've now had 16 GB of ram installed (two of these kits) for over two weeks without a single hick-up or snag. In fact, I couldn't be happier. The iMac boots in under 15 seconds, almost as quick as my macbook air, and now manages to encode with handbrake at 250fps WHILE multitasking Adobe's creative suite. I've also run other stress tests with SC2 (running with every option to the hilt) and other processor intensive tasks. I simply cannot express how pleasantly surprised I am. In sort, ignore those ramblings across the pond, these kits are a tremendous bargain and rock solid.

OLYMPUS VF-1 Optical Viewfinder for use with 17mm f/2.8 Micro Four Thirds Lens
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fits in hotshoe, adds to the retro look of the camera, light

Cons: only works with the pancake 17mm, does not convey what the camera has focused on, increases bulk of the camera every so slightly reducing pocket-ability

Other Thoughts: This came with the E-P1 kit I purchased from Newegg (E-P1, 17mm and VF-1) and I spent all but one day using it. It's wonderful, fits the character of the camera well, but crucially does not convey what the camera is focusing on. If you're dealing with landscape sorts of photography (odd for this lens) that shouldn't be an issue. If, however, you're looking to take advantage of DOF and frame objects to make them pop, this won't help one bit. I'm guessing that's why Olympus went with the EVF. Anywho, it looks cool and does what it says it does, provides a frame of reference for what the lens is taking in.

This review is from: WD Elements 1.5TB USB 2.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive WDBAAU0015HBK

Pros: Great Price, quick enough, QUIET, well built

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Nicer than the myBook it replaces, as quiet, and less expensive. Loving it.
