Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model 997038
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent memory modules. SODIMM with Micron 1.35V . DRAM. Runs much cooler than 1.5V PC12800 Memory. Installed in mid 2011 15" i7 Macbook Pro.

Cons: DIMMS fit a bit strangely and are not extremely secure (pop out easily) in one of my DIMM Slots. Checked 2 other sets of SODIMM's (Samsung and GEIL) these fit great without popping loose.

SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model MV-3T4G3D/US
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Macbook Pro (2011) i7 15: - Runs cool due to 1.35V and 30nm process. Wicked fast! Benched against Kingston HyperX 1600 Ram and it's just as fast. The published CL of 11 must be a mistake because they're about 2% FASTER than 2 sets
of Kingston HyperX Ram that is tagged as CL9.

Macbook Pro recognized it immediately as 1600 speed and it ran perfectly.

Cons: None

SAMSUNG EcoGreen F4 ST2000DL004 2TB 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast drive w/ Average 110MB/s via eSATA. Quiet (most of the time)

Samsung support was great to work with and provided me with a replacement drive in a timely manner.

Cons: At about 6months, drive started to have problems, read performance would fluctuate between 110mb/s and 20-30mb/s randomly.

Cannot use any of the Samsung utilities to set AAM/APM or test the drive unless it is directly connected to a motherboard.

Unfortunately, I can't run any of the utilities because it is in an eSATA enclosure. Since I have a laptop, there's no way for me to connect the drive directly to the motherboard.
