              Product replaced the memory of an old VIAO that had slowed due to new programs that required heavier memory use. Increased memory seems to have given new life to the laptop. I prefer to buy your memory because I've never had it fail. I have buildt up 20 to 30 machines over the years and have always replaced with your memory when possible.
