Heheh. Its always good to get to talk with the folks that actually use and enjoy our products. Most of my day is spent talking with Resellers and System Builders, which can occasionally be fun (Our contact at Shuttle is an awesome guy), but tends to largely be lots of numbers and stuff.

I think I have more fun answering the phone and talking to the guy building a badass Core i7 system, even though I am having to learn everything over again. (I dropped out of the PC scene for a few years and got into the Mac thing during college, please don't hurt me).

I've used both Mushkin & G.Skill ram extensively, presently have the G.Skill PC2-8000 sticks in my main rig and the equivalent Mushkin offerings in my other box, & would have a serious issue deciding between either.

Let your wallet do the talking.

G.Skill should not even be a choice. It should not be in the same sentence as Mushkin, OCZ or Corsair. G.Skill = cheap garbage. The ghetto brand name doesn't help either.

Mushkin RAM is high quality stuff. I've used several of their HP-series DDR2-800 and DDR2-1066 kits in the household and also for customer's machines. I have never had a failure yet, not an incompatibility. Plus about a year ago I got a few copies of 3DMark Vantage with the purchase of their kits. That is a far more useful "promotion tool" as compared to mail in rebates which never come back.

I agree that Muskin ram is excellent & it is always on my recommended list, as are a few other brands, for my clients, but your response leads to my following comments.

Interesting that in your blurb there isn't one word that backs up your "Review" of any of the brand names you mentioned for better or worse.

If you have a preference then back it up with reviews from trusted sites or concise detailed experiences of yourself & others & most importantly common sense.

Like I said, let your wallet do the talking but instead of reading your "well articulated" response maybe the person who started this thread and others reading here with interest would be better served consulting some great reviews of any memory product given by this great site & others.

P.S. Imagine if we all chose products based on our "Personal" take on how a brand name sounds or the inclusion of "Promotional tools" to sway our better judgment. WoW.
