        Received, removed old memory and had this installed within 10 minutes. Works great and has the same specs of the memory in the chain stores costing twice as much.

          Strange, the notice I got to do this review, since as far
          as I can see, only lists one sodimm. Actually I bought
          two. Maxed my Toshiba laptop out to 4Gb. Very, very fast
          now, even with shared video ram AND running Vista. :-)
