PRODUCT COMPOSITION & FEATURES


With a price range of US$250-US$275, PMI's Low Latency DDR400 is VERY competitively priced and is $10-$25 cheaper than the competition.



Starting off, you will receive two 512meg dimms encased in standard memory packaging used by many manufacturers today. It doesn't offer much in the way of product protection so make sure your online retailer packages it accordingly.



The memory modules are mounted on the standard green PCB and cooled via a branded heatspreaders complete with logo and identification sticker. It's a pretty good looking dimm set and should compliment any windowed case nicely.



One thing that caught my attention is the weight of the package. The extra heft came from PMI's use of nickel plated copper heatspreaders usually seen on memory rated much faster than DDR400. Although most people will consider this a little overkill on memory rated at base speed, it will allow a better overclock and keep all modules very cool providing you have sufficient case air flow. Hey, if the memory is cheap and has copper heatspreaders, you are half way there. All we need to see is how the memory performed and whether it was reliable and the testing will be complete.
