Seems to be a significant improvement over the 223 series.

Did you buy yours from NCIX, or somewhere else?

Nice work FactFinder! maybe there’s still hope for Samsung

It’s good ,but I’m still gonna run it through M.C.S.E. first chance I get :bigsmile:
I personally like to see the high speed tests because if they look descent, you know 12X will be money:D

I’m sorry but that TYG03 might have nice jitter, but your just swimming in PI :rolleyes:
