          I've purchased RAM through Crucial for over 10 years and I've had a fantastic experience every time. This experience was no different. I ordered the RAM, received it in a timely manner, and installed it with no issues.

          I won't buy RAM from anyone else.

                This was a drop-in upgrade for the single 512M SO-DIMM that was in my wife's nc6220. XP Pro feels about a third faster than before and now multiple open windows are actually workable. Saved me having to buy her a whole new system. ;-)

                Memory was fine, no issues. In some notebooks, such as my HP nc6220, you have to remove the keyboard to get to one of the DIMMs; that was kind of a pain, hence the "difficult to install" comment. Check your manual before you buy to make sure you're comfortable with what you might have to do to install the new memory.
