One note, if you look close at the picture of the 2x16gb ram, the timings actually say 10-10-10-24. This is tempting anyways
Interesting.. and nice catch.. but I do think it might be B&H dropping the ball on uploading the proper picture.. as there is a CL10 for almost the same price along with an 11.. but yeah pricewise very tempting.
Initially I was very disappointed because out of the 4 strips, 3 were defective (with all 4 chips in, the system wouldn't even POST and the other two defective strips caused consistent blue screens). I called Amazon's support and they were very helpful in getting me a refund on the initial order of RAM. I didn't want to rip the working chip out of the system to send all 4 back at once, so I had to purchase an additional 4 strips, then send the first order back. Upon receiving the second set, 1 out of the 4 strips was defective so that left me with a working total of 4 eventually.
I haven't messed around with overclocking this RAM (not even sure if it's possible, but even if it is I'd need to do more research before attempting it). I do know that this RAM receives a Windows Experience Rating of 7.8 which is only one-tenth lower than the maximum rating you can achieve
Not really an "unknown" brand, but admittedly not mainstream etc. They have been around for some years now. I have 2 sticks of this brand in my early 2011 MBP typing this, replaced the stock (Samsung) after 4 weeks.
It's been rock solid. My wife has 2x 4GB soDIMM in her 17" MBP from 5 years ago, working fine for 4 1/2 years now. I just recently bought more Komputerbay desktop size for the HTPC to bump it up, works fine as well. Obviously not a guarantee for the future, but 3x solid purchases for me in the past. Solid quality. Bought them always on Amazon so far. For Apple though look for Komputerbay memory that says Apple, just to be on the save side.
"2. it is not as advertised.. photos show Komputerbay branded RAM on Samsung or Hynix chipsets.. guess what.. it's NOT! I bought 2 - 2x4gb Komputerbay SODIMM sets.. what was marketed in Komputerbay's own marketing photos was Samsung PC8500 SOIC or TSOPs.... What I received as generic 256x8 BGA chips (16 per board)."
