My memory strip has the following written on a label:
2Rx8  PC3 12800U 11-12-B1 SK Hynix

1.  What do those words/symbols mean?
2.  When I purchase additional memory, which of those symbols should I type into the "memory purchase search box"?
3.  Is there a better quality memory than SK Hynix? For instance Corsair? Samsung?  Is there an independent web site that tests memory specs?
