This review is from: Rosewill RNG-406Uv2 - Ethernet Adapter, 10/100/1000 Mbps, USB 3.0, 1 x RJ45
Pros: Worked out of the box (plug & play) on kernel version 3.9.4-200 (Fedora 18). Source compiled easily on older 2.6.32 kernel (RHEL6) and I had no trouble getting it working.
Cons: None, yet, but this is only day 1.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to get the Asix driver from asix.com.tw -- at the moment, it's newer than the one on Rosewill's site, and has considerable fixes. Also, I haven't done any benchmarking yet, so can't speak about throughput.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Can corroborate the claimed tech specs -- doing read-only tests w/USB3, I was able to reach max throughput of 70-80 Mbps (~9 or 10 MiB/s). Also, drive feels great in my hand.
Cons: Write performance blows compared to more expensive drives.
Other Thoughts: Can't speak to longevity yet, but after plugging this in and running some benchmarks,READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought 2 packages of these for a new business workstation (Dell Precision T3400) and was very grateful that they fit just fine. Ran memtest86+ on each stick separately for 5+ hours and then all 8GB together (overkill) for 12hrs -- they performed flawlessly (not to mention they stayed pretty darn cool to the touch).
Cons: As many have already noted, these don't report the proper timings to the mobo. Not a problem for most, since you can just change them in the BIOS -- I already knew this and certainly wasn't worried about it. I didn't know however, that Dell machines don't allow you to change timings. Argh.
Other Thoughts: Timing issue aside, in my view they're still better than practically any other non-ECC RAM out there. I was worried about the height added by the heatpipe but it wasn't an issue at all in my mid-sized tower, and actually preferable in my eyes to the extra width added by some heatsinks (these are thinner than most).
I'm very pleased with this slick package by OCZ. I think this makes my tenth OCZ memory purchase. Have only had one bad stick over the last five years.
