HyperX 24GB (6 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K6/24GX
  • Verified Owner

Pros: Used in a high-end workstation running a server OS for testing. Typically handling 4 running VM's each with 4 GB allocated.

Have not had any stability issues.

Cons: None.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Have had absolutely no issues with this memory. Actually buying another set now to bump the machine to 16 GB to accommodate more video and photo editing (and gaming).

Cons: Even though the heat-sink is intimidating, I don't think they would double as weapons when Z-Day comes.

Archos - 70 Internet Tablet - 8GB Running Google ANDROID + Wi-Fi (501582)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Affordable and functional. It does everything that I ask it to do - including entertaining a 2 year old while he watches movies of himself.

The battery life is good as long as you do not leave the screen on indefinably. I will get ~ 8 hours out of the battery before hitting 15% (streaming online radio while at work).

It will play flash (though it is not optimized for the hardware) and has gotten alot of use.

The build in Music and Video player are descent - the new Google Music app is very nice and does work on the Archos after the latest firmware update (August 2011).

Cons: No optimized flash. (You can install Flash 10.3 from market place).
No native Google Marketplace (it can be installed via APK and works fine).
256 RAM is a little limited.
Runs Froyo - not expected to go to Gingerbread or Honeycomb.

Other Thoughts: I have been very happy with this product - alot of good feedback on

Would I but this again? Yes - if it was 2010 again. Currently there are too many descent HoneyComb tablets (though they are ~ double this price).

Would list this at a con, but its not limited to the Archos device - though there is a somewhat small partition for apps, but you can move a majority to the internal storage and can work around the issue.

Still happy with the device. Once the warranty has expired and I have replaced the device with a HC tablet, I plan on installing the SKD and Urukdroid.

Additionally, find yourself a better laucher than stock, like the Zeam launcher or VTL and it works quite well.
