          This is at least the second if not the third or 4th time I have used Crucial. I am a busy home user and not very technically inclined. Crucial analyzed my needs suggested the chips. I made my selection from their suggestion. I got prompt replies verfying the order and notice of shippment. The chipset arrived in a timely manor (regular - 3 days). The chipset popped in to place and I was back up--total down time 30 minutes (because I am slow and cautious. I recommended Crucial just yesterday to a dear friend and had no qualms about it. I remember upgrading my first computer to 1 MB. When I checked the store it was [$] and the salesperson warned that the cost was only going up. I think that is when I found Crucial and payed [$]. I have upgraded a couple other computers since then and haven't paid that much since. I am a little slow about upgrading my RAM but it does save me money.[$] for 1 MB and I just paid [$] for 2 GB.

            My pc was bogged down with limited memory making the easiest of tasks difficult and frustrating. After goggle-ing around for the proper memory upgrades I came across Crucial.com and was very impressed with how easy it was to find the correct memory card to fit my pc and was even suggested on the right amount of memory to install at a very attractive price. Shipping was prompt and installation was a breeze. My pc's performance has gone up 2 points and speeds through multitasking and gaming. I am very satisfied and will continue to use Crucial products in the future.
