I've been using OCZ PC3200 before people knew what PC3200 was (sort of) it has performed flawlessly, and I happen to be a perfectionist. I deplore, any "Reviews" which are tainted, or influenced by a product's advertising contrabutions to that site, and many reviewers do not get "paid" to review. There's very few professional writers out there with a degree in EE, objectively comparing memory. Most are people who are experienced, but tend to be less critical, as their getting to keep the products afterwards. E-Bay is flooded with products reviewed, then sold by the reviewer to fianace what he/she really wants!
