CORSAIR ValueSelect 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model CMSO16GX3M2A1600C11

Pros: Price, delivered in 2 days. Works in the Lenovo G510

Cons: Appearance maybe.

Other Thoughts: Bought new laptop, wanted 16g but did not want to spend time searching for a DIMM that was compatible with the machine or it's existing memory. The 'egg's memory finder steered me to this selection so I chose strictly on price. Corsair makes no mistake by trying to make this DIMM look like anything else. It let me know that I am frugal and labels the DIMMs with stickers that tell everyone that I am a cheapskate.

5 out of 5 eggs I like it 03/09/2014

This review is from: Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

Pros: It's Windows 7.
Best MS operating system to date.

Cons: Activation key on COA sticker hard to read.

Other Thoughts: Installed on a new Gigabyte H81M-HD2 board with no hassles.

Only needed the Ethernet driver from the mobo CD. Everything else worked.

Pricey for an OS that is one version behind - but they know we want it and will pay for it.

GIGABYTE GA-H81M-HD2 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Equipped well enough for the purpose
On board video with D-Sub.
Saved my bacon by working on old OS partition.
Ultra Durable features.
Hassle free fast Windows 7 install.

Cons: 4 SATA ports
No Windows XP support

Other Thoughts: Bought in a combination with i3 4130 CPU as a rushed replacement board in a Plex media server. Something killed my old MSI LGA775 board and power supply, so with this replacement simply swapped out it booted into Windows XP and was in limp-a-long mode while I sought out drivers for XP.

Really, my Plex server was again functional enough to operate under a swap & drop.

My search for XP compatible drivers came up short - never did find complete audio & video drivers so I could preview or watch content on the console. I later ended up buying a system builder copy of Windows 7 pro at Newegg. I had just 2 hours to install the OS and get the media machine back online and finished with time to spare.

Along with the copy of Win7 I also bought a Rosewill pcie SATA card to bring the port count back up to 6.

So I spent a bit more on a new OS and expansion card to replace was was essentially a spare parts computer I had been utilizing as a media vault. The hassle free install and newfound performance outweigh the minus'.
