    have had laptop for 3 years and with only 756MB of RAM it was pretty much useless with todays demands. My PC would constantly lock up and using it was more of a hassle than a benefit, however I didnt want to invest $1000 for a new one. Purchased 1GB RAM for [$] and what an INCREDIBLE difference. I can actually use multiple programs at the same time and use Facebook. I'll probably get at least another year out my PC now, definately worth the minimal investment!!!

    I wanted to speed up my laptop and have purchased from Crucial before with no problems. However, this upgrade was difficult to install and fell out because the door would not close completely with the upgrade installed. It appeared to be a hair too thick. Anyway, I couldn't use it, but had tossed the packaging. First time for everything.

      Ordered a memory up grade for a Toshiba notebook. It got to us in a couple of days. It was an easy install and a great upgrade for an older notebook.
