Pros: shipped to me quickly, priced decent.

Cons: does not work, causes system errors

Other Thoughts: I bought this ram to put into a new gaming computer that I was building,
I didn't install it until a couple weeks after buying.
At first it seemed to work fine, but about a week after install I started getting occasional BSODs, which grew more frequent over the next week. My minidump files indicated an error code of 0x1a, which is a memory management failure, and upon testing the Crucial Ballistics sport chip, it was found to be faulty. I removed and replaced it with another ram chip I knew to be working and the 0x1a error is now gone.

Without ambiguity, the new chip was the cause.

This was a bad chip, and it caused me lots of headache.

Worse yet, I am informed now that I cannot rma due to having it a little over a month

I guess I'll just have to eat this one and live & learn, but know that I am NOT happy with Crucial Ballistics or Newegg right now.

Word of warning to others. Caveat Emptor!.(buyer beware!)
If you buy a ram chip from Crucial Ballistics do not wait to install i! or the same thing might happen to you

Pros: Great card, easy to install, fantastic price.
refurbished- which to me means it has been gone over and is pretty much guaranteed to work. Plays all my games on highest settings with ease.

Cons: none so far
