System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.

Memory:

DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

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.

Used on an HP CP 3525n printer. We only had the on board 256MB in the printer and we were having issues printing out images for review. We are an art consulting company. We were guessing the images were too much for the 256MB as we would get out of memory errors during printing. Purchased the 1GB from Crucial and it worked great on our printer. Installed easy without any problems. Solved the out of memory issue at a much lower cost. Looking to purchase memory for some of our other HP printers from Crucial.

                      I placed my first two orders to Crucial in quick succession, one for an iMac, the other for a Compaq HP. Crucial identified the correct memory for my computers, had the memory in stock, and shipped it promptly to arrive when I needed it. I would recommend Crucial to anyone who wants to upgrade their computer's memory.
