      Received the product on time and it worked very well. No problems ...
      Crucial is the best vendor for memory products I have ever worked with in the past 15+ years. Their customer service and delivery times are unmatched. There are very few vendors I recommend to my associates and friends, but Crucial is one
      that I do not hesitate to send them to.

              Was thinking of trashing the old Dell and getting a new one. Decided to upgrade the memory from 256MB to 2GB...and wow, what a difference! Cheap, simple upgrade that prolonged the life of my old computer.

                  I purchased 2 and incresed my ram from 512 to 2 gig. Much more affordable than the same product from OEM. About one-third the price.
