Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

                This HP still runs Vista with no problems, but with only 2G I was gradually facing slow boot-ups with Norton + Windows. And a few freeze-ups running Outlook, Firefox and Photoshop at the same time.Wanted to keep it for a few more years while I figure out my new iMac and decide down the road to go all Apple and eventually pick up a MPro - or wait for W8 possibly next year.The upgrade bought me time and solved some performance problems now. For under $70 it's about the best money I've ever spent for home computing.

                      Crucial's RAM selection tool is fantastic. I found the exact RAM I needed, selected the size I wanted and I was done in less than 5 minutes.Note on the Con: I was hoping for a notable increase in speed since this new RAM had higher frequency, but there is no notable speed increase. However, it doesn't detract from my enjoyment. My purpose was to have more RAM, so I could increase my Windows SWAP file, so I can have all my applications open at once (~30-40 windows at once) without Windows having to write memory chunks to the hard drive all the time. The product hit every mark on that account and I'm very happy with the[$]investment.Thanks Crucial. - Michael

                          I had origionally purchased a PNY 1 GB module locally to suppliment the 1 GB that the HP 6910p laptop came with. I had to take this module back due to incompatability with the system, even though it was listed as the correct part.

                          For just over double what I paid (on sale) for this 1 GB module, I was able to purchase and install two-2 GB Micron matched-pair modules at a higher speed (6400 instead of 5300), which increased my Vista memory performance rating from 4.3 to 4.9.

                          If you are ever in need of memory, you can't go wrong with Micron!
