200-pin SODIMM

DDR 200-pin SODIMM
DDR 200-pin SODIMM: Approximately 2.625 in. by 1.25 in. (66.7 mm by 31.75 mm)
  DDR2 200-pin SODIMM
DDR2 200-pin SODIMM: Approximately 2.625 in. by 1.18 in. (66.7 mm by 30 mm)

A small outline dual inline memory module (SODIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). SODIMMs get their name because they are smaller and thinner than regular DIMMs. The gold pins on the bottom of the SODIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a SODIMM are not connected.

200-pin SODIMMs are used to provide DDR and DDR2 SDRAM memory for notebook computers. 200-pin SODIMMs are available in PC2700 DDR SDRAM, PC3200 DDR SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-6400 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-4200 SDRAM and DDR2 PC2-3200 SDRAM. To use DDR or DDR2 memory, your system motherboard must have 200-pin SODIMM slots and a DDR- or DDR2-enabled chipset. A DDR or DDR2 SODIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM SODIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)

The number of black components on a 200-pin SODIMM can vary, but it always has 100 pins on the front and 100 pins on the back, for a total of 200. 200-pin SODIMMs are approximately 2.625 inches long and 1.25 inches high, though the heights can vary. Like 144-pin SODIMMs, 200-pin SODIMMs have one small notch within the row of pins; however, the notch on the 200-pin SODIMMs is closer to the left side of the module.

I am most happy with the crucial software I used to find the type of memory I have in my notebook computer. I simply ran the executable and was given many choices for memory options to install in my notebook.

I don't like installing free applications on my computer because you don't know what you may get, and the best thing about the memory finder software from crucial is the application doesn't require an install or make registry entries.

My notebook does not page anymore, since the upgrade and I don't find myself closing applications to free up memory to make my notebook software run at a usable(business use) level of speed, since the memory upgrade.

Computer memory should be your first upgrade to increase the speed of your computer and crucial should be one of the first places you look for memory.

Matched pairs should be stressed more

Chosen specifically through Crucial's selector for my machine Toshiba Satellite A135-S2246.

Crucial stated on sales page:
----------------------------

"Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?

A: No.

No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance."

                    This memory was recommended by crucial but was not compatible. Neither of two sticks worked in either of the two memory slots in the A105-S2031. It would not even go into firmware setup, it would shut down. I do not believe that there was anything wrong with the memory, it was worth a try.

                            I use the computer daily, it is an older IMac, and it is much faster now with the newly added ram. It was reassuring to run the online scan to confirm the memory was what I needed for sure!
