Mushkin HP2-5300 DDR2 1GB Kit

Introduction & Packaging

Introduction

So you're on a tight budget and looking for some high performance DDR2 memory. The options are sparse, with most manufacturers offerings being high latency or generally poor performance.

Enter the HP2-5300 series from Mushin. Sharing a lot of the features of its bigger brother (the XP2 series), which recently won the OC3D 'Recommended' award and a score of 8/10, can the HP2 series perform just as well - or even better maybe?

Mushkin HP2-5300 Packaging

The HP2-5300 packaging is exactly the same packaging as the recently review XP2-6400 that Mushkin kindly sent us a short while ago.

The modules are protected by a hard plastic blister pack style packaging, with a printed card insert at the back sporting the Mushkin logo & Graphics. Also printed on the card is some excerpts from previous Mushkin reviews - who knows, one day we might find ourselves on there :)

Many other memory manufacturers use this exact style of packaging, however, an additional welcome touch is the bonding of the edges of the packaging (as you can see above) to prevent the package from being easily opened and fingered by static members of the public.

its a shame that the Mushkin stuff is quite hard to get hold of in the UK. Some sites have it, but nowhere near the full range
