        The memory recommendation provided by the Crucial web site was accurate for my (somewhat old) desktop PC. [...] The memory was installed relatively easily and appears to be working fine. The increased memory really improved the PC's performance. In summary, the ordering experience was very easy,[...]and I haven't had any issues with it to date. I would order again from Crucial.

            I was relunctant to put any money into our desktop because we have had it for a few years now. However, and this is a big however, I went ahead and increased the memory in hopes that I could save myself a ton of money- and it works!!! The computer was soooo slow and would freeze ALL THE TIME, but this upgrade has made all the difference in the world! My kids are downloading videos and music, watching TV and chatting with friends... and it was soooo easy to install. Just amazing!

              The product seems to be correct, was easy to install but there seems to be no difference in performance. Considering I quadrupled the RAM, I expected quite an improvement. I would like to find out if my system requires further tuning to make use of the upgrade.......
