PNY Optima 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model MN8192KD3-1066
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Decent upgrade, but negated by failures
Warranty replacement

Cons: Failures within months of use

Other Thoughts: I bought these from a brick & mortar store. One stick of the two started failing within a few months. PNY replaced them under warranty but one of the sticks was defective out of the box. The other failed within a 1-2 months of use. Thank goodness for the lifetime warranty, but I won't be buying PNY anymore.

PNY Optima 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model MN8192KD3-1066
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Boosted system performance (temporarily)

Cons: Failed within a few months.
Warranty requires original receipt.
Warranty limited to original owner.

Other Thoughts: My laptop ran well for a little while. Then within a couple month I got BSOD reboots randomly. I didn't figure out it was the memory until after I started reinstalling Windows 7 and the installation kept failing. MemTest shows one of the sticks is riddled with errors. Given the warranty limitation and this product failure, I won't be buying any more PNY products - not worth any money savings.

Rosewill RX-358 V2 BLK - Black, 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works with Windows Server 2008 R2. Super quiet. Solid construction. Super fast speed of eSata. Includes SATA to eSata adapter/bracket.

Cons: Heavy, bulky (thick), power adapter occupies three outlets side-by-side in a powerstrip

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for alternating overnight backups. Didn't experience the drive sleep problems in other reviews. The fan on one of the units became a little noisy. Eventually, the enclosure became unstable. Backups started to fail. The server would recognize the drive at first but during disk access it would disappear and I had to power cycle the unit and rescan devices in Disk Management to have it recognized again. I'm trying to get warranty service,
