      I have had this for months now. Crucial made it easy to find what I needed, [...]was very simple to install. So easy in fact I rebooted my old machine, got back to work and forgot to write the review until now.

        I used the 2 sticks of RAM to upgrade a somewhat older computer. I was a novice at installing them, but had no problem once told that it took a bit more pressure than I had assumed.

              I went from 256MB to 1GB. That should tell you things went from snail pace to blazing speed. A very good investment for anyone with an older PC or laptop. It's like I have a whole new computer. Thanks Crucial.

                We reformatted our 5 year old desktop, hoping that would speed things up, but there was minimal improvement. My niece found the crucial.com website, and we got the 512MB DDR memory upgrade. My old desktop is now almost as fast as my new laptop.

                    A friend recommended that I upgrade my older PC with parts from Crucial. He was right. It was well worth the money.
