[QUOTE=alan1476;2643495]Come on Kenny, MSI is a household name if you are into computers. They make Video Cards and Motherboards and all kinds of computer stuff, I am surprised they havent come into the market sooner.
I agree many users may not have heard of Patriot or Kingston , most assumed incorrectly they only made RAM but their SSDs are stellar I have both of them and they have excellent, Sandforce controllers. I cant wait for the new Sandforce controllers.[/QUOTE]
Obviously I didn’t mean that MSI isn’t a widely known brand name among consumers. I still own some MSI and DFI motherboards though they are fewer than those made by some others. Kingston’s also a very popular consumer brand. Patriot has been probably far less known in terms of years. I think I’ve known Kingston for more than 20 years. By unfamiliar names, I meant those even I never heard of. Add to that the various names of importers and distributors of each country and region they overwrite on top of the OEM brand names.
