4 out of 5 eggsInspect the contacts (mine had a dirty spot)

Pros: Worked like I hoped & expected. Not a bad deal, considering the performance benefit.

Cons: Dirty contacts. In dozens of memory upgrades, I've never seen this before. I don't know if it would have caused memory errors, but I didn't want to risk it. Deducting one star for that.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these. When removing from the package, I noticed a dirty spot on the contacts on the back side of one DIMM. I was able to wipe off the dirt with a few passes of a cloth dipped in 91% isopropyl alcohol.

After that, I ran memtest86 overnight. All tests passed.

BTW, the max rated speed in my laptop is DDR333. However, the benefit of using DDR400 is that my laptop run it at CAS 2.5 instead of the rated CAS 3.

I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 on a 90 nm Pentium M (Dothan). Won't run on the earlier generation, due to lack of PAE.

I also installed a Transcend PATA/EIDE SSD. Lots of RAM is key if you're running Linux on a laptop with a SSD. To minimize writes, I have /tmp/, /var/tmp/, /var/log/, and /var/spool/ mounted on tmpfs (essentially a variable-sized RAMDISK). This puts even greater demands on memory capacity. With only 1 GB, I was swapping before I'd hardly run anything.

5 out of 5 eggsOld RAM is Expensive

Pros: Crucial makes high quality RAM. They make their own chips (MIcron) so you don't end up with no-name generic chips that might not last or might have errors from day one.

Cons: Pricey for what it is, but good for upgrading that older laptop that client just refuses to replace because "it works fine"...

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice upgrade

Pros: wow this put my computer from unability to play 480p videos without freezing up to 720p with no issues. boots up faster allows all my programs to be played at the same time and still screaming fast.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: why is this more money than other ram? it has less voltage and my laptop cannot support 2.6V ram. so i pay the price oh well. i bought 2 of these.

5 out of 5 eggsRun's Good

Pros: Made my old 1.8GHz AMD Turion 64 M ML-34 Laptop run very good with 2GB with Ubuntu. It dose very good for when i write my programs and websites building. It is hard to find ram that works and runs good on these old laptops now.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat it's made for

5 out of 5 eggsMade me faster

Pros: Replacement for 256Mb modules in a Compaq-Presario laptop/WinXpPro. Was just sluggish trying to hop on the Internet. Even after cleaning and tuning. More memory did the trick. Much more responsive now. Used Crucial memory for many machines. Find highly reliable.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Wish laptop mfg's would put in four slots instead of two. I hate pulling out old memory to just have it lying around unused.

3 out of 5 eggsCrucial Ram for Gateway Laptop

Pros: Windows booted up on my bro's 5 year old Gateway 4026gz laptop after the new module was installed, after a long series of what seemed to be a beep code followed by the windows loading bar. (same bar you see when you do an install of Win XP and it is loading the files)

Cons: While logged in(after trying the password 5 times cuz it wouldnt except it), windows was immediatly showing abnormal funtionality(to long for me to list). I call crucials tech support line and explain the problem to them in detail. After going through a basic check list to see if I had tried all of them to fix this (which I did) he told me to run a program to see if there were any erros with the ram. No Really? Like I wasn't going to do that next. The only reason I called was to ask if for any reason this ram wouldn't be compatible with the system, before I waisted any more of my time running a memtest, but he assured me that it was 100percent compatible just like the website said. Ok so I run the memtest and what a suprise it doesn't come up with any errors. Ok so why isn't it working? If I didn't know any better I would have blaimed it on bad memory from the start, but since it checked out, that only leads me to one other explination, THE MEMORY ISN'T COMPATIBLE!

Other Thoughts: This is in no way shape or form Neweggs fault. I just feel bad for the average joe who doesn't have much technical knowlege about these kinds of issues that is being misleaded by companies that use words like garenteed compatibility as thier strongest selling point. After all, isn't that why brands like Crucial cost more then some of the others? To give the customer peace of mind that their product will work? After doing some extra research on my own, I found out that the PC2700 is the only one that will work in his laptop, No thx to the crucial website that suggested the PC3200 in the first place, or the customer support tech that told me he sold 190 of the same exact modules, and only had 1 comeback with a problem. If I had listened to them I'd still be trying to figure out what was wrong right now. Crucial Really needs to Update their website with correct information. I will be returning this to newegg for the PC2700 version and everything should work fine.
