I was looking for just 1 2GB stick to take me HP Pavilion DV6885se notebook from 3GB to 4GB. For the price, I figured I might as well get 2 matching sticks.
When the memory arrived, I was pleased with the packaging and instructions...
...unfortunately 1 of the 2 sticks was dead on arrival. As of this writing, I have sent the memory back and am waiting for a refund. I tried both sticks in each of the 2 memory banks, and also used each Corsair stick with each of the 2 OEM (Samsung) sticks that came with the laptop. There is no doubt one of the Corsair sticks just wasn't recognized.
Generally, Corsair has a good reputation. Unfortunately, I got a dud.
