      Comments about Crucial 512MB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Pavilion a210n System:

      I have an old computer that only came with 256MB of RAM. When it was new, 256MB was plenty. I bought enough memory to max it out at 1024MB. The computer runs like new again. I think I will be able to get another year or two out of this computer before I have to replace it.

        Comments about Crucial 512MB Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Pavilion a210n System:

        Computer was running slow, it was suggested that we increase our RAM.

        Crucial was suggested, and after taking an easy Crucial test, the proper RAM was determined. Ordering was easy.

        Once the RAM arrived, my wife insisted we wait until it warm up to room temperature, before installing it. Wife installed the RAM, we rebooted the computer, and have been thrilled with the faster speed results ever since.

        It took very little time for the computer to recognize the new RAM, and begin using it.

        Everything works smoother and better on the computer, from going online to playing games. We couldn't have asked for a better product.

          Was skeptical, but very easy to install. Had to do it twice as I did not have it correctly installed the first time. But simple after I checked the problem. Will possibly add more at a later date. [...]

                I am a computer instructor who assists my students with their computer problems. I have purchased from Crucial a multitude of times for those students. I have consistently received a perfect product and never had any difficulty in the quality of the product. I will continue to help as many people as needed with the purchase of necessary memory upgrades.
