I bought two to upgrade my laptops memory from 512 to 2048. From now on, memory is not my bottleneck. Its performance is good, due to amount of memory of the windows xp, swap operations are minimized thus my overall system performance is effected dramatically. At least best buy for me. Good and quality assured upgrade option...

This memory upgrade is just what I needed to delay a little bit a new computer purchase. I usually run several programs at the same time, my task bar usually ends up with two levels showing applications.

Before the upgrade my Inspiron 6000 usually crashed when running Adobe Premiere and Photoshop at the same time, and it had 1GB; now it does it without a problem, and I can even play music in iTunes while doing so.

The truth is that the computer is not really that much faster, probably the Centrino 1.73 GHz CPU can't do any better. The real gain is stability, because I can run several programs at the same time without worrying about possible crashes. One thing that did improve was MP3 encoding, it took at least 30% less time to rip a few CDs from my collection, and put them in iTunes, pretty nice.

Now, running Ubuntu Linux, (I have both OSs in my laptop), the story is quite different. I really do not understand how Linux handles memory, but it does it much better than Windows. The OS fires up in seconds, and all apps pop up much faster. I when displaying icons in the accompanying Ubuntu menus, I used to have to wait a second or so to get the the icons displayed, now they pop up instantly. Apps in Linux did truly improve after the RAM upgrade. If it weren't for MS Office, by far the best office suite, I'd move to whatever may be different from Windows.

On the technical side, the memory was instantly recognized by the system's BIOS, it does not heat up any more than what the old samsung memory modules did. The BIOS does not allow to check latencies, but I guess they're just fine since the system works perfectly.

Great value and performance that meet my system's requirements. When I make the move to an Apple iMac, I guess I'll upgrade memory using Corsair, can't understand why they charge $ 850, for the 4GB when well known memory manufacturers, sell it for $ 200 or less. If anybody knows, I'd appreciate the input.

I had an older Dell laptop that a friend gave me when his screen quit working. I decide to use it as a media center for my Dumb flat screen TV in the bedroom (thus the laptop screen wasn't needed). I upgraded it to Windows 7 but needed more memory. $20 bucks was a good deal - works fine and made the laptop faster.

Installation of this 1GB unit has made my laptop so much faster and stable. The ram speed is technically slow by today's standards, but when upgrading from a slow set of ram, it seems like it's blazing fast.

My old laptop still works fine, I just wanted to give it some more memory. The price was right, the specs were exact for my machine. Would not boot up. Out of box failure. Either bad parts or it is not 533 Mhz memory. My old memory still works.

Oh another thing, at the same time I upgraded my wife's newer laptop with memory from Crucial. Worked like a charm.

Purchased to replace the 512mb Ram that came in my Toshiba laptop. Switched that for 2 of these 1Gb sticks and have had them in use in my notebook for over 2 years now and no problem yet.

Thanks to the reviewers for this item in Amazon and I also look up the memory config [...] for my laptop just so I get the right RAM. I purchase 2 of these 1 GB card for my IBM thinkpad T43. It is so easy to install and triple my original RAM config. I can see the improvement in my labtop already. I have window XP Pro and ready for the window 7 coming this fall. I am happy with the purchase and will recommend anyone with an IBM Thinkpad T43 with less than 1 Gb of RAM to get it. There are 2 slots for the memory card, one underneath the keyboard and one can access from the bottom. There is instruction videos in [...] support forum on how to remove and install memory card. The max. ram capacity for the T43 is 2 GB. I am very happy with the purchase.
