        Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Dell Latitude D830 System:

        After reading reviews and instructions I thought I would go ahead and try to select, order and install the needed RAM for our office computers. This was not something I had ever attempted before, but we are a non-profit, and funds are limited. Crucial's website made it very simple to select the correct RAM, and matched the pairs (which I later found out would not have been done on other web sites I considered ordering from). Ordering was simple, and they honored our tax exempt status by providing a cc of our IRS exemption. Installation was so much simpler than I had expected (I also watched a U-Tube video that supported the Crucial instructions). I was proud of myself, but more pleased about the money we were able to save by not having to schedule a service call to with IT specialist to install. I'd absolutely order again if needed!

                I only buy my memory from Crucial, they have always had the best price and best service. I'm not even sure why they list "difficult to install" under the cons, if you have diffculty installing maybe you should take your system somewhere else..
