How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

          It was super easy to install. Took only 5 minutes. Took longer to take the cover off my computer. My computer no longer crashes as much as it used to. Window reloads are faster. Starts up are faster. No instructions are included, but they have online videos and docs you can study before you install the new memory, but it's so easy to do it, just check them out before.

            I used the product because my computer was very slow starting up. As soon as I installed the extra memory it started up very quickly and it is much faster. Very affordable price too. Thank you.
