    Increased RAM and speed of a Dell Dimension 4500 to the maximum....noticed at the first bootup. Easily installed in less than 20 minutes. Memory was recognized immediately. [...]This is a second purchase from Crucial, the first equally successful. One more computer to upgrade and it will be a Crucial product.

    Submitting this review based on an email request from Crucial. I just received the memory today but according to Crucial it was shipped way back on 12-8 with a delivery date of 12-14. Almost three weeks to receive order, that's some pitiful shipping times. I would suggest you get away from USPS and go to something more reliable like UPS or Fed-Ex.

                        Added 1 GB to an old PC which had 256MB. It made my PC usable again. Great value for money. Only slight issue I had was to make multiple insertions to get the memory DIMM sitting correctly in the slots.
