Nothing exciting here other than a new can of spray paint and a marginally lower price.  This marketing crap seems to get the best of all the up-and-comers.  You can already get the same performance with the Red and Black series from these guys.  Let's see some lower prices coupled with tighter timings for cying out loud...with the emphasis on the latter.

Though I, too, am not impressed by a paintjob on memory sticks, Mushkin is hardly an "up and comer".

They've been around for a long time (in computer years, anyways).  Since the mid-90's, if I recall correctly.

I think he meant new people to BOYB PC's not companies.

Yes, I see what you're saying, you are probably correct.

Sorry, Blaze.  Wasn't trying to flame, or whatever, anyways (no pun intended).

Man, that completely sorted itself out without word-one from me.  Niiiiiiiiiiiice  (BoRaT Style).

Yeah i was referring to the noobs.  I know Mushkin has been around for ages, and up until recently, I've have been thoroughly impressed with them.  But this sort of repackaging crap really pisses me off, when what we really need is bottom-line improvements in the tech.  When the "tip of the iceberg" is a freaking can of paint, I typically jump ship and start heading back to land.  LOL

Never felt flamed btw. S'all good!

I'm BlazePC, my eVGA Classified is beyond blazing fast and Windows 7 is da ****.

Yeah but some people do care about paint it's not like they are falsly advertising and it doesn't cost $50 more than their normal stuff (Corsair) so I don't see the problem.

Nobody was claiming false advertising or any such thing.  If you're into the whole nuke theme that's cool, I get that.  What bothers me is that this is supposed to be cutting edge, tip of the iceberg stuff and it's just repackaging.  That's my gripe.  I'm sure it's sweet ram and it looks cool but it's still the same tech underneath the spreaders.

Where's the next wave of shrink process chips with better timings and higher densities?  That's what I'm talkin bout...
