Works as it should,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Komputerbay 8GB ( 2 X 4GB ) DDR2 DIMM (240 PIN) 667Mhz PC2 5400 PC2 5300 8 GB (Accessory)What more can I say? The computer recognized all of it and it certainly seems to be working as fast as it should. I was a little nervous, because no one else had reviewed the product, but it works perfectly and is VERY cheap for what you are getting. I recommend it.

As said before, a great price for what you're getting. Shipped immediately, arrived well packaged, and plugged right in for a considerable boost to my system

3 months on are you still running smooth?? I am on the verge of buying the product I am just interested to see if there have been any problems since?

Yeah I got really irritated at one point because I thought it was causing a BSOD but later learned it was driver error... so yeah all good =) Just make sure it's properly seated because mine wasn't and it was causing my computer to randomly reset.

Awesome, good to know! I couldn't pass up this price for 8GB not to mention it is one of the only affordable 2x4GB sets on amazon. Does it happen to have a brand on it?

It has no brand name imprinted on it, expect that of the seller. A software utility said that the manufacturer was Micron Technology, the brand that manufactures Crucial memory, which is actually a very reputable memory brand.

Awesome that's reassuring!
Thanks for the help!

Can you let me know what prices you two were able to ge these memory chips for? I'm considering upgrading my computer from 4 gb of ram to the 8 gb or ram... I'm not sure if it's worth it at $105 though.

I bought these back in 2010 for $156, but I don't know what they really go for in today's market. Back then, it was a bargain at the price I paid. I don't know if the value's gone up or down since then, though. Try searching around on here.
Make sure you really need it first though, you can do that by looking at your task manager and seeing how much you typically use (and I apologize if you're already aware, which you might fully be, but just trying to be helpful), and you should also make sure you have a 64-bit system, because a 32-bit system won't even use the extra.
Just reply if you have any questions! I'm a computer enthusiast myself.

Agreed with Brian, you really need to determine if you need 8GB of RAM. I'm a photographer and videographer, so having 8GB of RAM is a necessity during rendering, but even more modern games won't suffer with 4GB of RAM.
That said, DDR2 is only going to get more expensive, so if you come to the conclusion that you do need the 8GB, I would get this kit now. I bought 2x2GB of OCZ Gold in 2010 for $40, and I just sold it used on eBay for $52...since it is no longer being manufactured, prices can only go up!

Yeah, he's right. Prices typically go up over time, which is why it seems odd that this is cheaper now. Better jump on it now before it goes back up, if you need it. And I support what he says about how much is needed. I usually stay between 3 and 3.5 GB, but I once made a project for school that involved a giant 78MP png, RAM usage went up to 100%, and my system started to lag. Make sure you know the difference between RAM and processing power as well!
