How does Kingston HyperX compare to other lineups?

From my research, Kingston HyperX memory seems to be pretty solid and reliable. However, I've also purchased Crucial Ballistix, Corsair Vengance, and G Skill Aegis and had good a good experience, except for Corsair (dead on arrival). What are your guys' opinions. Also, if anyone is interested in upgrading their memory, here is a listing for $25:

This is just my personal experience, but when it comes to memory, I more look at the RMA, warranty, and just overall experience. The majority of ram really only comes from 3 top places, Samsung, Micron, and Hynix. You can individually research the ram chip model just to get an understanding of it, but for most people, when they are looking at ram, it's either to run @ stock speeds/timing or overclock (that's where the research comes in).

In regards to Kingston Hyper X, I'm currently running 3 of their products. Hyper X Predator 3200mhz ram, Hyper X Quad Cast Mic, and Hyper X full-sized mouse mat. Zero issues with any of them, all look and work great. I would buy hyper X again in a heartbeat. Mind you, I buy new, not used.

RMA service that includes free return shipping.

If you're not paying, try get Hynix HMA82GU6DJR8N-XN, Micron MTA16ATF2G64AZ-3G2, or Samsung M378A2G43AB3-CWE -- no XMP overclocking at all but still 3200 MHz.
