Did anybody notice that the last computer that had the screen saver, was running windows xp? I just thought that it was neat. I don't think people realize how many companies still use windows xp. Kinda neat. ( I am not rooting or saying xp is better, just stating what I noticed).

Wow what a piece of crap! I really was expecting something like the even the cheesy early days of "How It's Made".

This was just a video of a guy pointing at a bunch of machines that weren't running and telling you what they do, and he was pretty terrible at it. The only interesting thing he pointed out was the solder template and it was clearly a last second after thought. The only running machines were for packaging, and they were filmed horribly.

If only the internet had a delete button...

It's incredibly interesting to this old systems administrator.

What do you all expect? To open those machines up and let us see the process would halt manufacture, and cost Kingston money. Quit bitching

This is not like the "How It's Made" Show on TV. No bubbling Silvery pools of molten Solder, no fast moving placement machines placing components on boards. All he does is describe what the machines do. You do get a tiny glimpse of the packing machine running.

Did anyone else think that the RAM testing was a bit, I don't know, mickey mouse?
I can understand wanting to test various motherboards for compatibility, but actually using them for testing? Wouldn't there be way too many variables that way, and would a device purposely built for RAM testing give a more reliable result?

Same way almost any assembly line works. They take units for a quality test out of the line of RAM. As long as the RAM works in one MoBo it should work in all of them that can accept that type. If it doesn't then it's 99.99% a problem with the MoBo. It does look like it could be automated though.

It's a video of the guy telling us how its done. Nothing is actually SHOWN to us except for a bank of computers, a special oven, and blurred out screens, like stated by labelkills1331. I can go see a video 100 times better than this on youtube. You guys obviously didn't do any research on this, lol.

I did read it. So we get pictures of what the factory looks like. I was way more interested in the video, which was very disappointing to say the least. I expected to see at least SOME of the process being done while it was explained by the guy. Instead the only thing we got to see that actually had moving parts was packaging, and no one cares about that.

you should read the article that went along with the video

So we saw a video of exactly nothing happening. Just a bunch of blurred screens, arrays of computers, and machines.
