5 out of 5 eggsWorks in Synology 1010+

Pros: Took off the top case after removing 5 small screws at the rear just like on a desktop machine. The slot was on the side. It snapped right in.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It didn't work at first try but it worked after removing it and wiggling around when inserting it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Heat doesn't seem to be an issue. Might run a bit hotter than the 1GB stick it replaced, probably due to this having twice as many memory chips, but the heat from this stick definitely isn't excessive. Any extra power consumption from this stick will probably be offset by the OS not having to access the disk as much now that it has more RAM available. I didn't even think about it when shopping, but it looks like there are some 2GB DDR2 sticks available that use fewer, higher density memory chips (8x2Gbit, instead of 16x1Gbit on this GeIL memory and most others). Perhaps power consumption and heat from these modules would be lower? Not sure, but something interesting to think about. If you want to squeeze as much battery life out of your notebook as possible, it might be worth researching further.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The packaging is surprisingly finger friendly, which was a pleasant surprise. Unlike some the plastic isn't melted/sealed all the way around, but instead has two rivets at the top corners holding it together. Just cut the corners off and then the packaging will open up easily. Wish more companies used bubble packaging like this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory / Great Price

Pros: Cheap, fast, reliable.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why other people are complaining about excessive heat.

Several months ago, I purchased a pair of these for my Presario V6000, and they performed very well. Going from 2GB to 4GB really woke Vista Business up.

Memtest86 reported the auto memory timing to be 5-5-5-15, 452MHz for DDR904 speed.

Once I had these in hand, I realized they could be used in our netbooks, too. So, I ordered 3 more to put in an Asus 1005PR, a HP 110-1125, and a Toshiba NB305-410.

I have not noticed excessive heat issues with any of these machines.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid it - Go with Tier 1 RAM

Pros: Fits in a 200-Pin SODIMM slot

Cons: Doesn't work

Other Thoughts: I got this chip and immediately ran Memtest86 on it. It completed one pass without incident and so I installed my OS. Less than 24 hours later I couldn't boot into the machine. I tried booting into a LiveCD and Safe Mode and still couldn't boot up. I was thinking that something was wrong elsewhere with the system. However, on a hunch I tested the RAM again with Memtest86 and it failed immediately!! I should have gone with Corsair! Too bad I now have to pay for shipping to send this completely useless piece of silicon back to Newegg. :(

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Sir/Madam,

We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you and we would like to provide you with our technical support.

Please kindly let us know the make and model of your laptop, because it is odd that the RAM passed Memtest the first time, but failed the second time after you installed new OS.

You can contact us at tech@geil.com.tw with the information.

Thank you for your time and effort.

BR,

5 out of 5 eggsGood enuf!

Pros: About as fast as you are gonna get in a SODIMM format. Low latencies at all speeds programmed in SPD at standard voltage.

Cons: None, except memory of all types has been getting rather more expensive lately!

Other Thoughts: People complaining about heat probably compare to slower speed stuff... all my memory runs hot! I don't expect any issues long term beyond normal failure risk. There is the warranty though!
I did notice that the chip packaging is smaller than my other memory which may affect how the heat is dissipated but not the total amount of heat generated.
