performance and looks and price
really good looking and best performance for the price compared to all others with the same specs. the issue is that ram prices skyrocketed. if it werent for that they would have been maybe 20 dollars or more cheaper than what they are now but all we can do is wait till they drop

p.s. this is the second time i buy this same kit

Looks great, low profile heatsinks, cheap
It doesn't make coffee in the morning
good little kit for the price, i got a 16GB kit too for another system wouldn't hesitate picking another one on sale.

Experience: 10 Months
Often on sale, overclocks well beyond 1600MHz. Excellent customer service.
I bought this item on sale, and for Kingston's outstanding customer service from my previous purchase. Kingston RMA is extremely fast, it took me 5 business days when my previously purchased RAM failed.

This RAM is a BEAST! I was very happy with XMP profile that took it to 1600MHz 9-9-9-27-1T u1.65V, but I wanted to squeeze out little bit more performance. By manually setting the timings and voltage, I was able to achieve 2000MHz 10-11-12-33-1T u1.63V. 2133MHz was also possible, but I chose to keep the timings tight.
Incredible unadvertised performance!

Experience: 14 Days

Good price, fast ram
Tested 100% fine after first install. Ram looks good, is fast and worked great out of the box.

Experience: 21 Days
Fast ram ddr3-1600.
High density ram: will work only if your motherboard can detect 8gb ddr3 ram chips per slot. Tried in a computer that supported 4gb per slot and didn't work.
Bought this ram to upgrade a Lenovo computer supporting 8gb total ram (4gb per slot) and this ram didn't work. Ram is using high density chips, a single row of silicon chips. It will be detected if your motherboard supports 8gb chips per slot ONLY. I managed to swap ram I had in another tower for that Lenovo tower which was double sided (mushkin sileto ram bought here on ncix).
