Opinion on Mushkin brand memory?
 
Anyone have an opinion in favor or against Mushkin RAM? Trying to decide on my next hardware selection, but have been deterred by reviews not being worthwhile on newegg lately. Thanks for any input, greatly appreciated!

It's been highly recommended here in the past. We just don't see a lot of retailers stocking them anymore in Canada.

Absolutely, Mushkin is Baws.

Awhile back, I replaced the RAM in my Alienware notebook with Mushkin and it was great, not to mention priced very well.

I have had 2 kits and both have been awesome. ncix and canadacomputers carry them.

When DDR2 was the norm, they were the reference.

But I have not heard much from them lately.

My old home server had Mushkin, never any problems. I think the only memory I ever had issues with other then the odd bad stick was kingmax, that stuff was just plain bad.

I've run several different sets of mushkin and never had a problem. That said, they took an awful hit when they let Mushkin Greg move on as he was probably one of the most recognisable (and helpful) tech reps / CSRs ever to grace the internets.....

You perhaps forget about all the Mushkin memory during the DDR2 stage that failed absolutely miserable because of their binning procedures?

Gregg was essentially hung out to dry by the company.

I don't remember that... I was probably too focussed on my failing Ballistix sticks. :) (Pretty sure I repleced them with some blacklines.... ;) )
