Pros: Inexpensive, works well right out of the box
Cons: Started giving random lockups after about three months of use. I tested the stick in two computers using HCI Design Memtest, and it tested bad in both systems.
Overall Review: I'm currently in RMA process for this from Crucial. The RMA process has been easy and straight forward. Funny thing is, I've bought a second stick from the egg to replace this one while it's off for RMA, and I'll have two matched sticks when it comes back from RMA.
Pros: Samsung branded memory. Nothing fancy, but works as expected.
Cons: Runs a little warm - 50 degrees C according to my IR probe. Nothing to worry about.
Pros: Very inexpensive.
Rock solid performance.
Was able to over clock by 30%!!!! and still stable.
I am running 3 of these sticks at 1040MHz with stock timings.
Ordered 3 sticks from Newegg and all 3 worked on arrival.
Overall Review: As with all overclocks, you will need extra system cooling.
I am running an AM2+ system on a NVIDIA nForce 780a SLI motherboard with 3 of these 1g sticks.
Pros: Cheap!! Worked flawlessly on a 2007 dell inspiron 531s desktop.
Cons: CAS Latency is a bit high, and the voltage is on the low end.
Overall Review: im not knocking eggs off for the cons though, since its in the 'value class' and are so inexpensive. better can be had, but for what you're paying, this ram deserves 5 eggs.
i picked up 4x1GB of this ram for someones dell inspiron 531s. it came with just 512MB of ram, so maxing the motherboard out with 4GB really made the difference they were looking for. i could've opted to spend $20+ on some different, slightly better performing ram instead, but for a novice pc user, the value class serves the purpose with flying colors. i used the saved $20 to upgrade the tower's dvd/cd-rom to a burner! everyone's happy!
Pros: Price was nice, Worked for me
Cons: None...Why are cons a required field?
Pros: Good price and a familiar brand.
Cons: One of the sticks seemed to have a slight warp to it but it installed and worked just fine.
Overall Review: Nothing fancy, but works.
Crucial is somewhat of a name brand.
Only 3 out of 5 purchased actually work.
Overall Review: I'll be attempting to RMA through Crucial, and I'm hoping for the best. I am putting these into 5 systems for a client, and having two fail from the start doesn't bode well for the future. If the client wasn't trying to cut the cost, I would have purchased more expensive RAM.
Pros: Cheap but seems to work just fine. The memory chips are mostly unmarked but the DIMM itself is supposedly made by Crucial which is a good thing. CPUID reports it as such.
Cons: Dinging it one Egg due to cheap packaging for shipment. A bubblewrap envelope will NOT prevent fragile items like memory sticks from getting bent or broken! Mine came in the clear plasic retail container but it had obviously had some stress put on it during its trip to my door, like it had been bent in the middle. The DIMM was not flat anymore, either. Luckily the DIMM installed fine and passed a few runs of Memtest86 so I guess I shouldn't complain, but I'm still not too happy about it. Cheap shipping shouldn't mean you're taking your chances with it arriving in one piece!
Overall Review: Timings are 6-6-6-18-23 pulled from the SPD info using CPUID.
