      Comments about Crucial 8GB (2x4GB) SO-DIMM Memory Upgrade Kit for Notebook:

      I was pleased to see that the memory modules needed to upgrade my 3 year old workstation were available from B and H Photo. I noticed the price was attractive compared to other sources, and since I have had nothing but good experiences buying audio and video products over the years, I did not hesitate to order the memory thru B and H.

      I was anxious to get this upgrade done, and was most impressed with how fast the package came from NYC. The tracking features available thru their www site worked flawlessly so I could plan when to wrap up a job, install the memory and get on to another job.

      The Crucial memory was packed really well. It installed without a hitch, the PC started up as it should have and I feel like I've got a new machine.

      Thanks to B and H for stocking these pieces, and for getting them to me most expediently !

        Comments about Crucial 8GB (2x4GB) SO-DIMM Memory Upgrade Kit for Notebook:

        I purchased this memory upgrade for my SONY laptop because my new camera (D800) had such large files it was causing it to freeze and crash during post processing. The processor is a Duo Core 2.2 ghz and I upgraded from 4 gb to 8 gb of SDRAM. I wasn't sure if that would take care of the problem but it did. Processing is still slower than I would like, but it isn't crashing so I can continue to use it as a mobile processor. Next step is a new powerful tower.

        Upgrade bought me another year...

        Comments about Crucial 8GB (2x4GB) SO-DIMM Memory Upgrade Kit for Notebook:

        Very satisfied. I have a HP DV7-3063 laptop that originally came with 4GB and Windows 7. Trying to effectively run PS CC and ONONE Perfect suite 8.0 was near dreadful. I upgraded to 8GB and saw an immediate improvement in performance. As a side note, though, perfect with photoshop can eat 8GB of system memory like it was nothing. I monitor my usage and with perfect open I can use 5-7 easily. This will get me by for another year. Definitely worth the money and B&H is awesome as usual.

        works great and it has been worth it .. older laptops - ram and ssd upgrades are youth fountains - new battery is jolt of fiber.

          Fits easily into the computer and doubles the RAM I had from the factory. Only wish DDR2 was available in 8x2 at this price! Add this to the solid state HD and you're off to faster starts and quicker processing. Beats buying a new laptop for me.

          Made my 4 year old Vista PC (hp dv7 1262 us)much faster. Internet browsing with 1 Mbps DSL became noticeably faster in Chrome and I could have more windows open w/o slowing down. Also made voice recognition software 2x to 3x faster.

          Then I upgraded to Windows 8. Now it's even faster. (Windows 8 is fast even on weaker PCs -- definitely on a PC with 8 GB RAM)

          Using the new IE 10 on Windows 8 is blazing fast with the 8 GB RAM, even with only 1 Mbps DSL.

                  I own a QuadCore notebook and one of the original memory modules failed after one year of use. I then decided to upgrade the total system memory to 8Gb, buying this Crucial package. Installation is very easy. First you need to touch a grounded object to get rid of static electricity or use a proper strap. Then you just need to remove some screws in the back of the notebook, lift the modules by gently forcing the side clips and insert the new ones. The modules worked smoothly, but you only notice some performance improvement when running multiple memory demanding software, like image and video processing. The original 4Gb configuration is still suitable if you run one strong application, even if it is a game, at a time.

                    I trust crucial memory by good experiences in the past.

                    B&H did a good job presenting the product, quickly shipping the memory, etc. Arrived in 2 days with free regular shipping.

                    The memory is a bit pricy, but I think it is worth it and my laptop (Thinkpad X60 Tablet) runs much lighter now. It has been a couple weeks now and no problems found. Happy with the purchase.

I was and so researched RAM and found there are only a few manufacturers and Crucial was one and had clean customer reviews. I am very pleased with the speed and reliable no issue performance I now enjoy.

                          I am surprised actually at how my laptop speed increased with the installation of this Crucial memory kit. I checked with Crucial to be sure the B&H product would fit my Toshiba and saved several bucks in the process. I had Crucial recommended to me by several friends and they were right. It performs as promised.

                            My laptop is noticeably quieter and faster and I can run multiple heavy-RAM programs (photoshop, skype, word, excel, and firefox) at the same time with much less lag.

                              I upgraded my Dell Latitude e6500 with this RAM and it has made a reasonable difference. It has made my system much more snappier.
