    RAM is RAM is RAM. 1866/1600/1333 makes no real world difference for normal tasks (reading emails, Word, etc). In synthetic benchmarks, maybe you'll see a 5% difference, MAX. Hence just get whatever is cheapest.

    You will see a big difference in performance, one which can be measured on a stopwatch, if you are playing around with huge adobe photoshop/illustrator/indesign files, or even some heavy animation software- given your processor can make use of it. If you use firefox, and microsoft word all of the time I completely agree, get whats cheapest that has a lifetime warranty

    Out of personal experience, Kingston has a better RMA department than Corsair does, so when your memory does fail, Kingston gives you a lot less hassle in terms of getting it replaced in a timely fashion.

    Well right, but average joe schmoe isn't using Photoshop, or compiling code, they are reading emails and doing Word. And there are better ways at spending money than on faster RAM for that kind of work; better CPU, GPU, SSD.

    Anyone have any benchmarks that directly compare these, or any comparison links? I was hoping to wait for 2133 mhz but that seems to be a long way from now..

    How does higher speed ram affect large file? I understand capacity can give a noticeable performance but bandwidth?

    There is a case for maybe going to 1600mhz to get the most our of SB, but maybe not when paired with the 555m.
