    They make excellent memory kits, bit expensive though compared to some at the same speeds

    I bought a Mushkin kit a year ago and my system was never stable with the kit in. I have a very skilled friend who came around and worked out that one of the sticks was faulty. We had the kit replaced and the new one failed within a month. I had it replaced again.

    The last one is working still, but I would have concerns over their quality control.
