As with all memory I highly recommend running some sort of memory diagnostic to ensure that it is working correctly - either using "memtest86+" (note the PLUS sign is important) or "Windows Memory Diagnostic mtint.exe" (Do a search for the quoted text and you should find links). Leave it running overnight and you'll find out if everything is OK or not.
- The only downside to this is the packaging. The memory is basically inside a thin cardboard package and while environmentally friendly I do not consider this packaging adequate to protect against "real world" shipping damage, especially if there are other heavy items in the box. Also to open this you need to use a knife and cut the dotted line at the back of the package. Do NOT attempt to "cut through" the plastic holder containing the memory itself as you may damage it.
I hope you have found this helpful!
For what this sells, it can't get much better.
Before ordering, you should make sure that this is EXACTLY what you need. While DDR3 transfer at twice the data rate of DDR2, they are physically incompatible with DDR2 slots so you can't upgrade from DDR2 to DDR3. You should also be aware that the amount of available memory depends on the operating system and the way your computer is configured (BIOS) so you may not be able to use the all the memory in your system until you install to a 64-bit OS and/or upgrade your BIOS.
To me, it's an easy 5 stars.
- Peak transfer rate: 8533 MB/s
- Cycle time: 7.5 ns
- Memory clock @ 133 MHz
- I/O bus clock @ 533 MHz
- ONE 2GB module
- Limited (what does it mean?) lifetime warranty but there is no warranty statement
- Made in Taiwan
More detailed notes: I ordered this to go into a 2 year old Samsung NF310 netbook to make it a useful Linux machine. Specifically, I did three things: increase the memory from 1GB to 2GB with this card; replace the HD with a 120GB Kingston SSD; and replace Windows 7 with Ubuntu Linux (specifically, with Lubuntu, the lightweight version). Whereas Windows 7 Starter took several minutes to boot and log in, Lubuntu is so fast that it's astounding. Less that 5 seconds from the time it displays the OS boot screen until login. Of course if you need Windows, it's another matter, but Lubuntu may turn your netbook into an extremely fast and serviceable machine, especially for Internet browsing.
In any case, the memory card here works great so far and that would be the same with Windows or whatever OS you're using; I will update if that changes. Cheers!
Installing is a challenge - there are many on-line tutorials to guide you. It's an involved operation as you need to use a putty knife to pry apart the Mac Mini case. The putty knife is needed to release the plastic tabs holding the case together. You then need to remove 3 antennas, 4 screws and wiggle the drives off the top of the stack. After this, the memory is in the usual memory sockets. It's good to have a can of compressed air available to blow out dust that has probably accumulated over time.
So simple, even an adult can install it!
Snaps in and Windows XP picks it up immediatley on a cold boot (Before you install - you must remember to remove big battery, electric power cord AFTER you zap yourself touching the computer (just like walking across carpet and touching something metalic).
You will have something like 2.75gb memory when done.
When you remove the two screw holding the underplate, you cannot miss the place to plug it in - Label side facing up to you. Push down gently along the sides and you will hear it snap in place.
Be gentle, it is a chip.
Computer works way,way better with the added memory.

Shipping and packaging to the product was excellent, no complaints at all.
Next time do your homework and if you still buy the wrong thing, go cry to your mom about it and keep your stupid neg comments off here!
Misleads genuine buyers who actually know what they are doing.
In regards to the item....
I bought a Samsung NF110 last week and within minutes understood that the 1GB of memory supplied was really letting it down. So purchasing this memory was my solution.
Item arrived quickly enough.Installed without issue and has made a noticable improvement to my netbook.
Have to admit, there is so much choice out there for this type of item I had no real reason for buying this particular module over any other.
In the end it came down to price and trust in the brand.
Nothing to complain about.
Anyone wanna buy a 1GB DDR3 ram module I now have going spare?
