    Five minutes to better, faster performance. Easy install, immediate results. Replaced one 256 with two of these 512's in a family member's aging Dell and literally gave it new life. The most effective and cost-efficient upgrade ever - should have done it a year ago!

    The memory plates were inserted to increase the speed of my computer. Insertion into the computer was simple and easy for someone who knows what they are doing. Increase in speed did occur, but the speed increase was not as much as I expected.

              Used this to upgrade a Dell Dimension 4400 from 512MB to 1GB of memory. Minimal cost and it helps this older machine run steady after a fresh install of Windows XP.
