    Comments about Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) Upgrade for a Toshiba Satellite L505-S6953 System:

    Basically I bought the RAM because what I was using was failing and I figured while I'm at it how about an upgrade. I checked around for better prices but couldn't really find any, however I think the biggest reason that I ordered from Crucial is because of the compatibility guarantee. I ordered them around Christmas time thinking that I would get them in a week or two just because its the holiday season. I was surprised to see them within the week! I immediately installed the RAM and have been working with great success ever since! Thanks Crucial!
