Great and wonderful Ram

Steven G., Newegg
13 May 2015
  • Summary: I have had this ram since 2012 and it has been pushed to the brink and back and never faltered! I have had several PNY products over the years and they have all preformed exactly as they have stated. I am Very Pleased and will continue to purchase PNY products!
  • Pros: Easy to install (like any ram chip set)
  • Cons: None!

Good Product

D M., Newegg
28 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought this as it was the cheapest 8GB 1600 kit with good timings. It's not the fastest or best performing memory but that's not what it was designed for. It works exactly as it should.
  • Pros: Price. Works.
  • Cons: Not high performance

Will not honor warranty

Guy B., Newegg
6 May 2014
  • Summary: Will no longer be buying any other PNY products!
  • Pros: One stick of Ram is still running for over 2 years.
  • Cons: Sent in an RMA for the one stick of RAM that went bad, and got the same stick back. I've done RMA's with most of the other RAM manufacturers and never had a problem.

Works Great

Dennis C., Newegg
9 February 2014
  • Summary: I wish Spring would get here and the snow would go away or that I could get a job with a company where it's warm and move!
  • Pros: Had to adjust the timings on a Gigabyte FM2/FM2+ board but that was easy and they are running great and you can't beat what they cost!
  • Cons: I'm glad that I'm not having the problems that some reviewers are having.

Awful PNY Customer Service

Jonathan H., Newegg
17 November 2013
  • Summary: Bottom Line: If you buy this RAM, hope that any malfunctions happen within the Newegg return period because after that you're on your own.
  • Pros: RAM worked well when the machine wasn't blue screened.
  • Cons: After six months of casual troubleshooting to figure out why I was getting random blue screens I finally narrowed it down to one of these two sticks of RAM. I was appalled when PNY refused to replace it even though it has a "lifetime" warranty based on a technicality in the warranty document. It ...

Crashes games

Matthew R., Newegg
8 November 2013
  • Summary: If you do decide to buy this ram then make sure you run memtest 86+ as soon as possible. When running the built in windows memory test I received 0 errors so I thought everything was fine.
  • Pros: Well made and simplistic look which drew me to pick up this ram.
  • Cons: For a long time I have had games randomly crashing on me. Just this month it has gotten increasingly worse and I tried everything to fix this issue. I re-installed games, re-installed windows 7, and ran various tests to no avail. Eventually I decided to test my ram which seemed fine. I ran memtes...

WILL NOT RUN AT 1600

James D., Newegg
17 June 2013
  • Pros: Runs Great a 1066
  • Cons: The first motherboard i had did not support the 1600 DDR 3 ram so i just ran it at 1066 which was fine. When i decided to upgrade to a new motherboard (GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard) i tried to run it at the 1600 which is what it is supposed to run a...

Nice.

Pamela A., Newegg
19 May 2013
  • Pros: Memory came in quickly, and once installed has worked flawlessly ever since. Have only had the newly built system for about a month if not less now, but I don't think I'll have any issues with these memory modules.
  • Cons: No cons so far, will update if it ever crashes.
