            I could not believe how easy and fast it was to install. And the site helps with purchaseing the right item. I have never been on a site that was so easy and with all the information right there at your finger tips. And after I receive the item it was so easy to install. I would not be afraid to do this or try something else. That is how easy Crucial made it for me.

              I tried to increase my computer performance. In some aspects it did increase the speed on my computer, but not for websites, like "Webkinz" or "Build a Bear" that my daughter uses. That may also have something to do with the internet speed.Overall, the memory was easy to install, had instruction per e-mail. [...]
