Pros: - Looks nice.
- Price was good.
- Was available at the time when I bought my MSI laptop. Not many manufactures where making DDR4 260-pin memory.
Cons: - Once installed my MSI GT72 6QD-019 Skylake would not boot.
Overall Review: To be fair it may be something with MSI. I bought memory from a different manufacturer and it would not post when it was installed as well. I was beginning to think I had a defective laptop. I gave G.Skill's recently released DDR4 laptop memory a shot and it worked.
Pros: It works! I went through several other brands and all of them caused no boot when installed in my MSI GT72-019. I was beginning to think it was the laptop but G.Skill came to the rescue and released their DDR4 memory.
It does take longer than I would like on boot for the BIOS to run through it's thing and begin the OS load. I believe this is something in the MSI BIOS (either a setting I am missing or a bug) and not related to the memory though.
Cons: None. It worked, runs as expected and the price is appropriate.
Overall Review: I have run G.Skill in many of my previous laptops and many other company laptops, my personal desktops and family/friends laptops and desktops. I have never had a single failure. I'll continue to buy G.Skill.
I would have bought them before the other brands but at the time they had yet to release DDR4 260-Pin memory. Glad they came along when they did otherwise I may have RMA-ed my laptop for no reason.
