I have a Tax Prep business so I need as much speed and consistancy as possible during this time of year. This my 3rd.laptop, and both the last one & this one were definitly improved by upgrading memory from Curcial, also the most economic way. I'm barely computer literate, but the ease of adding memory with these instructions was a breeze. Plan to upgrade my computer after this season, and when/if I need to grow memory, Crucial is where I will go. Thanks.

Small improvement.

You said it would be marginal. It is, but better.

            I installed the new ram on a secondary computer I rarely use. I didn't want to buy a new so this was a great and inexpensive fix. It works great now and is perfect for what I needed it for; email, word docs and limited web use.

            I have an old Compaq laptop bought in year 2004 and I was not using it anymore but then my mom asked to use it as she wanted it for casual use, say, to check emails, NEWS and to play music cds etc. However, the problem was that it was slow with 256 MB RAM only and I was not sure whether I will find compatible RAM for this old model. Here Crucial recommended me the compatible RAM with money back guarantee in case it doesnt work! This money back guarantee was great and allowed me to buy it with confidence. Once received, I installed it and it worked without any trouble and gave my old laptop a new life :-) Awesome!

              I bought the two sticks of 512mb memory for my daughters birthday, and to use in her laptop. She is so happy, since her laptop memory is now doubled, she can access pages that wouldn't load for her before! She is thrilled with the increased speed and ability to do things she couldn't before.
              Thank you Crucial!

                  I had an older Compaq 2100 laptop and the family was going separate ways for two weeks and I needed to put the old, slow machince into action. The memory increased the performance and I now have a reliable 3rd laptop for internet access when the need arises[...] install all easy. Price point excellent.
