      Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Toshiba Satellite X205 Series System:

      I have purchased several different memory components from Crucial.com over the last decade. Without exception, the ordering via the website is quick, the memory suggestions easy to find and always reliable and the price is competive.
      I purchased the above memory for my Toshiba laptop as part of installing 64 bit Windows 7. The laptop is dual boot, running Fedora 12 from Red Hat and Windows 7. I use the laptop as part of my life as professor. The additional memory makes the laptop noticeably quicker and more responsive. I can also use several apps at the same time, such as web search and Word.
      I look forward to future upgrades in all my computers and will use Crucial.com for purchasing the memory.

      Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Toshiba Satellite X205 Series System:

      I purchased the 4 gig kit to upgrade my old kit in my Toshiba Satellite X-205 with 2-vid SLI, Vista-32.[...] the instructional video on Crucial was perfect - better than the instructions provided by Toshiba. Installed all 4 sticks easily, and fired up perfect on the first try.The only con was the my system performance did really improve. My SLI is also buggy on certain games, and there is some system instability when trying to multitask between 3D Studio Max and PS. However, I think this is a bottle-neck somewhere in my system, bus?, more so than a dig against the new memory. In leui of this, my system is more stable with 4 gigs mem, than it ever was with 2 gig.I spoke to Crucial CS, and they were awesome. Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. an overall awesome experience!

          I use my PC for computer animation, HD movies, office applications, and highly demanding graphic games. The memory increase was a necessity for my applications, but I was pleasantly surprised at how effective it was. The "index score" for Vista didn't change, but the boot time, load speeds, and saving of applications is visibly better. I couldn't be more pleased! The service was phenominal! [...]

                  I have been using this ram upgrade almost every day for about six months with no problems. I
                  primarily use my pc for gaming and multimedia, this upgrade is very cost effective in many ways. For one I have noticed a much faster start-up/boot speed along with the ability to run many applications at once. This ram upgrade greatly improved my over all computer speed when running very demanding pc games. If your computer has the requirements for this upgrade go for it, you wont be dissapointed.
