    I travel both for my job and my racing hobbies and I got a refurbished laptop for Christmas. It was sluggish thanks to only having 1GB of RAM. [...] easy to install. Now my Netfix streams without a hitch and surfing the web is blazing fast even with multiple windows open. I'm already looking into upgrading the memory in my 2 desktops using Crucial. Great and reliable products :)

      I recently up graded my Dell Inspiron E1705 System which ran Widows Vista from (2)512 to (2)1GB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300, NON-ECC. I also installed Windows 7 after I installed the 2GB of memory. [...]. There step by step video made the change extremely easy for a novice computer guy. I would recommend them to anyone.

            The prompts for Mfgr and model when ordering memory were very helpful in determining the max amount to buy. The page contained memory slot info regarding my specific laptop as well as other info that was informative. The video gave me the confidence to do the install myself. It was quite easy. The hardest part was finding a tiny screwdriver. I have recommended your website to my friends.

                    This was so simple to install. Turn over the laptop and unscrew the door marked "M" then snap out and snap in. The speed was slightly faster going from 1GB to 2GB but I expected somewhat fasterloading of desktop at boot and start of apps.
