    Tired of hit and miss performance / fit of other memory sources, I tried Crucial. I'll never buy memory from anyone else. I can order the right module by manufacturer / model or motherboard specs. I always have several price, performance and packaging options to choose from. I use only Crucial memory in all of my 12 personal computers (including my server). I use only Crucial memory in every computer I build or upgrade for my customers. [...] I always get what I want when I need it. I don't need to look elsewhere. Thanks Crucial.

    This attempt for an upgrade in memory was a waste of my time and money. I checked the installation over and over and double checked that I bought the right memory for my daughter's Dell computer. My two sons-in-law also gave it their best shot. The upgrade simply didn't work and I'm not about to spend [$] of my time sending back an item that cost about $25. I'll just consider it a bad investment.

                        I'm a computer tech and I've used the Crucial scanner tool to nail down the specs for the RAM and what to order for my clients for years. Being able to do this without opening the box is great for doing work out in the field.

                        By the way, I hope you gave the employee who devised and implemented the scanner tool a big bonus.
