Been using Crucial since way back when 3rd party memory compatibility was iffy, but I knew I could rely on Crucial just like the OEMs do. I always start a memory search here because they know what fits on any mother board or system that I am working on that day. If the price here is even close, there is no doubt that Crucial is the best choice. If I have an empty slot I always buy the biggest ram I can afford and if my current memory and the new memory play nice together, why I count that as a bonus.

Pretty good

I'm new to the whole computer RAM thing so I can't really be sure if the computer is working to its full potential with this memory.

            I just needed to upgrade my RAM in an old computer. I went to the website, they scanned my system and sent me the perfect part. It was super easy including the video to install the product. I had never done it before but felt like a pro. Thank you

              A simple line drawing of location of memory ports, how to unclip existing, etc. might have been helpful. I had just watched our IT guy check the existing, so I knew right where to go, how to do it. Might be difficult with the thousands of different applications out there, though!

                I bought this memory upgrade for my mom's old Dell Inspirion 1300...WELL WORTH THE MONEY! It makes all the difference in the world. She is a casual internet brower and email user. This memory increased the user and reaction time so much that it's like using a different computer all together! Great purchase!

                  Was about to give up on my 6 year old Dell Inspiron 1300 notebook computer and drop $500.00 on a replacement.
                  Opted for the additional RAM instead. Product arrived quickly, and was VERY easy to install by following the Crucial video instructions.
                  The new RAM breathed new life into my old notebook and saved me $460.00.

                    I live in a retirement community and have helped a number of fellow residents order and install memory purchased (at my recommendation) from Crucial. If crucial has one weakness it is that the mechanism for getting an item into the shopping cart is unnecessarily difficult, probably due to the use of a dated format. Aside from that, I've been very satisfied with Crucial.
