Pros: I can split them into two sets of 8 g dual channel memory for another pc in case of emergency need. It will not last for ever.
Cons: When those memory failed, they always failed intermittent not totally dead. At the beginning I already suspect the memory is no good because I saw some lines on my display. My motherboard has build in video function but using memory from dimm. i RUN THE MEMTEST86 for 2 days and it passed. The problem is sporadic. Finally it happened so often and I am able to swap those 4x4 g dimm with another 2x4g in another pc and then run the memtest86 in another pc with those 4x4 g dimm. It shows me they did not pass the test intermittent. I am going to contact Corsair for exchange because they have life time warranty. They gave me 4 years trouble free service then they are going downhill from there. Crosair was ok to honor their warranty.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Inexpensive and reading speed is about 60 mbs by HD2 benchmark (using usb 3 port for testing, usb 2 will be about 25mbs)
Cons: Writing speed is about 18mbs in usb3 and 17mbs in usb2 with writing 3.7g large single file. I would expect the writing speed in 30mbs something because my Adata usb3 flash drive is doing 65 mbs in reading and 35 mbs in writing with usb3 port. The manufacturer is pumping up the reading speed by 25 mbs to 85 mbs by using the word "up to".
Other Thoughts: Just think about the price which is under 20 dollars. If I want to spend 80 dollars I could get one with 90 mbs reading speed and 60 mbs writing speed. Again 80 dollars vs 14 dollars for my 160 dollars smart phone is a quite heavy investment. It is almost 50% of the base value of my phone. So far I did not see any hesitation in my phone with this sd card. I guess it is ok for my phone with that kind of writing speed. Maybe my phone is not capable to write more than 20mbs to sd card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is not too expensive
Cons: During real life copying of large files, 4,5 g bytes, I only got 80 mb something in reading and 20mb something in writing. I never got the 100mb in reading and 50 mb in writing as the advertisement stated. I guess someone to jack up the specification to lure more customer.READ FULL REVIEW
