    Comments about Crucial 512MB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Presario 6000 Series (Athlon processors) System:

    I used Crucial in the past for my memory upgrade and then tried a cheaper company Tiger Direct.com and they sent me a memory card not compatible with my PC. Crucial however with their scan my system application once again found me exactly the best memory recommendations for my "ancient" PC. They are highly recommended also by Compaq as the proper memory upgrade supplier next to Compaq itself, even though Compaq or HP only recommended Crucial memory upgrades even through their own sight. [...] I would highly recommend Crucial Technology to anyone looking to upgrade their PC's memory slots.
