Pros: I've very had few issues with G.Skill's memory.
Has a Lifetime warranty and I can verify that G.Skill sticks by it.
Cons: Well, I can't say there are any cons besides the fact it doesn't work in my Zotac ZBOX CI320 Nano.
The stick is a bit on the tall side which might be a problem for some installations.
Other Thoughts: I had previously installed the 4GB version of this in my Zotac ZBOX CI320 Nano and I assumed that the 8GB version would work but I was mistaken. Apparently the unit is quite finicky with 8GB modules.
If you have a Zotac ZBOX CI320 Nano the only compatible memory, that I could verify, is the Kingston KVR16LS11/8. Crucial claims that the CT102464BF160B (CT8312859 on their website) is also compatible and I'm going to be giving that a try.
Pros: Works in the Zotac ZBOX CI320 Nano I installed it in.
Has not had a single issue so far in over a year.
Cons: Not listed as compatible with the Zotac NUC but it does work.
Other Thoughts: The 8GB version, F3-1333C9S-8GSL, does not work in the CI320 nano.
Initially I had trouble with this but it was actually due to the Zotac NUC's preference for the DisplayPort connection.
Pros: As everyone says: it's fast!
Good price per gigabyte
Easy to install
2.5 bay adapter is nice (see cons though)
Bay adapter positions the connectors correctly for 3.5" HDD fixed-position connector bays/assemblies
Includes mounting screws
Included software is a nice bonus
Cons: 2.5" bay adapter has a few problems. First, the side screws are not 'HDD-type' screws. They're 'CD/Floppy-type'. This change in screw pitch makes for some mounting problems if you have to use a specific screw.
Example: My case uses special screws to mount 3.5" drives in a vibration reduction grommet, these screws are 'HDD-type' and the adapter is not.
Additionally, the warranty sticker on my specific drive covers one of the mounting holes on the bottom of the drive. This hole is on the back of the drive by the power cable connector. Obviously, this makes mounting it down with all 4 screws something that would void the warranty. I hope I happened across a drive with a simple misplaced sticker. The drive mounts ok with only 3 screws.
These two problems almost forced me to dock an egg.
Other Thoughts: I'm honestly surprised that the screw pitch for the mounting adapter is CD/Floppy pitch rather than HDD pitch. I assumed that it was intended to mount into most 3.5" hard drive mounting locations and thus it would be wise to use hard drive mounting screw pitch.
Oh well, for the price it's still a good deal.
