Pretty good price for low latency (CL9) DDR3L RAM. It's good for upgrading compatible notebook computer or NAS, e.g. DS918+.

    15gb of ram is the new black.

    Probably spent as much if not more for 8gb for my 918+ though tbh I really don't need even that… or the 2 EVO Cache drives…..

    Some of the reviews are a bit concerning, but are they just because they didn't know how to install?

      My past experience with Patriot products is mixed (so my opinion can be biased). I have yet to have a Patriot memory product that lasts more than 1 year - but I did buy the dirt cheap ones.

      I am going to be cynical and feel the way Patriot (or whoever selling these) quoting the specs is shrewd.
      9-9-9-24 - that's in DDR3-1333 mode. At DDR3-1600 mode, it would be 11-11-11-28. So one bullet point saying PC3-12800 (1600MHz) and another point saying 9-9-9-24 - it is easy to trick people into thinking it supports DDR3-1600 in CL9 mode.

      If you must get DDR3 SODIMM now, I guess the price is tempting. Do bear in mind that when I got my Crucial DDR3L-1600/PC3-12800 2x8 kit from Amazon back in 2016, I paid less than this (e.g. this OZB deal). Also, run a full memory check on these as soon as you receive the modules (the full test - the one that runs for hours) as people have reported receiving modules failing memory tests.

        Thanks for your input. I might give this one a miss and wait for the next deal. Really all I'm needing is one 8GB ram stick.

        I'm not sure I'll trust this brand..

    A rookie question: Will they be compatible with Mac Mini mid-2011 2.3 GHz Intel "Core i5" with currently 2 x 4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3.

    Just great!! I bought 2x 8GB Kingston ram for about $150 2 weeks ago.. bugger!! Great price for branded RAM!

    Head up guys: Patriot RAM is known to get faulty easily, same goes with GeiL and some low end models of Team, ADATA. But Patriot and GeiL are particularly bad.

    There are plenty of better options on Newegg at a much better price. Newegg also offer free shipping to Australia on some products (including memory).
