      I use this memory in a laptop on my electronic work bench and it increased the laptops performance to its max which is sufficient for the applications used in the laptop. Bought from this company in the past and would buy again.

            I needed to increase RAM to run Windows 7 64bit. I went from 25 minutes to start up this basket case of a laptop to less than 25 seconds. Shut down in the 4 to 7 seconds time frame.

                    It was worth the time and money.
