The video was OK, but how about having Mr. Ung wear a headset with a mic so we can hear his comments when he turns his head? I had to constantly turn up and down the audio to hear the interview.

Always brutally honest . . . that's why we read him.

Bravo to Corsair for keeping the LEDs on "blinky RAM" actually USEFUL.

This latest LED-indicator-RAM setup does seem to cater to those expecting a cheesy disco effect like a low end dormitory stereo. However, it also seems to function like the old so-called "lame" blinky-LED-RAM of 2004 - showing a near realtime display of RAM use. I loved those modules! When my PC was acting up, I could SEE if it really needed a hard reboot or was just taking a long time to do something. The difference is now the lights can also dance and swim around. All it needs now is the voice of Doctor Theopolis saying "That's enough Twiki"

(sorry, had to re-edit that first line, as to not send the wrong signal)

Nice. I hope we see more video reviews. Steve Fortner at Keyboard Mag has been doing it for a while now and it's nice to see the products they review being used instead of just still photos.

Oh, and Gordon, you should do a video review of the coffee machine.

Thank you for just openly admitting that the aestetic is 80% of the purchase.  That being said, I tend to like RAM indicator LEDs and my love for Corsair has grown in the last few years.  I have Dominators in one system and may have to consider this.  Thanks MPC.

I have the original Corsair PC3200 XMS modules with the "activity LEDs" on the tops.  I would probably buy inti this when I build my next rig.  But by that time, these will probably be discontinued...

Another vote for the video medium.  And don't worry, I'll still subscribe.

I love good video reviews. I think most of us would like to see more of this in the future. You should definitely invest in a better camera, or turn the autofocus off and focus manually. It is usually hard for autofocus to resolve the close up shots in reviews, especially in low light conditions or with a crazy light show going on.

I own Corsair ram, but it makes me wish I had THIS Corsair RAM.

I like short videos like these looking at features/products. More please! :)

I wish when you did case reviews you'd film it like this so we could hear it fired up and determine just how loud all the fans are.

This is great.  Let's see more.

Focus is a little on the slow side.  HD?  Better mike?  Maybe a camera upgrade for the future.

Still, love it.  Thanks for something new.
