      I have been looking at OLED TVs in the store since they came out and have continued to read the reviews. I am always concerned that the picture you see in the store will be better than anything you can achieve at home. Plus the really high cost have always caused me to look at something else. This Christmas, I decided to treat my wife and myself to a really good Christmas present. I bought the LG 65 inch flat screen OLED TV. My wife had never been in the store with me, so she had only my word to go on. So I got the TV home, set it up and found some 4k content about space on YouTube, Then called her into the room. She was complexly amazed. I was very happy as the picture was every bit as good as the one in the store. I could go on about specifics, but you can read some of the other more in depth reviews that are available. Suffice it to say, this is the best TV I have ever seen or owned. It cost a lot more than the non OLED TVs, but if you want an unequaled viewing experience, it's worth it.

      Great upgrade for older slower machine

      Years ago it used to be that in order to have a machine with decent speed you had a lot of RAM 16-32 GB or more was not unheard of, these days however, memory isn't as important so many system builders don't build their machines with 16,32, or even 64GB any longer, they're building them with 4 or 8GB. This is due primarily to the OS have gotten better with how it uses physical memory. Well I had one such system build with very little memory, so I was looking for an upgrade to make my gaming better, and I thought this was step 1 in probably was going to be a 3 step upgrade, 1 memory, 2 SSD (new hard disk) and 3 new video card. Well I've slowed my roll on the other two upgrades after purchasing this memory. It has really increased the speed of my system and has made me take another look at my upgrades going forward. This is great memory as a replacement for older, slower memory, or as a supplement to current memory. I had no problems with installation, nor compatibility. Very good decision.

      Nowadays more Ram is more common. For a system that allows 16 GB of Ram, this product is a perfect upgrade. I have rarely had a problem with PNY Ram. To find out which and how much Ram is OK, look at your system board (motherboard) for it's model number. For instance, ASUS model number B85M-F . Google that motherboard type adding the word "specs" after the model number and hit enter, looking for "specifications". Under "memory" you should find what types of Ram the motherboard takes and how much is the max. Adding Ram and (or) an SSD drive can transform any compatible PC.

      Dead on arrival, no response from PNY RMA

      Posted

      I always go to Best Buy when I travel to the United States on holidays and on this opportunity I bought this kit of DDR3 RAM. Unfortunately the kit came DOA when I arrived back to Santiago (Chile), so I tried to contact PNY support for an international RMA, which until today, they don't answer. Also they advertise this product as DDR3 1866MHz where in reality they're 1600MHz modules overclocked to 1866MHz... so that's kind of misleading.

      I just purchased this kit yesterday, and I immediately saw a difference after installing them on my gaming PC. Everything runs MUCH quicker than I expected and new life has been breathed into my games. Feels like a new PC! Anyone who may be debating the jump to 16gb of memory should definitely take the dive. You will not regret it! Just bought this yesterday, so of course I cannot comment on longevity of this product, but it is definitely off to an impressive start! This purchase was made as an upgrade from 8gb of memory to 16 gb.

      I used this 16 GB kit along with another 16 GB kit from Best Buy purchased a few months ago to install on an Asus Sabertooth 990FX AMD board. The Memory modules are not true 1866 Mhz as they are labeled, but MAY run Overclocked at 1866 Mhz on your system :) They are unstable on my system running at 1866 but run perfect at 1600 Mhz. And before I get bombarded with a lot of "Helpful" comments. Yes I tried changing Bios settings, moving the chipsets, and trying different memory profiles and settings.

      Working as expected

      Having not installed RAM myself previously, it was a little confusing as to how to install this properly. The key thing to know is that it is a "kit" so it must be installed (at least in my case) in slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4. I had assumed you just slap it into whatever slots are open, but first my computer and then Windows were only seeing 8 or 16GB until I finally figured out this "kit" thing. So, it's a fine product, and works as expected, but make sure you read the instructions first! :-)

      Needed an Upgrade

      I wanted to buy an upgrade for my computer. I'm into gaming and felt like I needed more RAM. So I maxed out the RAM. So I purchased 2 of the 16 GB packs. The memory was very easy to install. Had no errors and still don't have any errors. The only problem I had was going to two different BestBuy's to get my instant gratification. I didn't want to wait a day or two for shipping. The memory was a step up from the Kingston I had. Works with my Asus Sabretooth board.
