1 out of 5 eggsGo with something else

Pros: Good brand (usually). Inexpensive.

Cons: Hasn't worked in two or three computers now. I bought this in June of 2013 (over 2 years ago at the time of this review) - as an upgrade to keep on hand while doing IT service calls. I've had at least 2 occasions to sell this (maybe 3) and each time the laptops have failed to POST (Power On Self Test). I've had to tell the customer that I need to order more specific memory for their model. It happens once in a while for any computer, so it's not usually a big deal. But when it happens to 2 out of 2 or 3 out of 3 , I begin to wonder if I'll ever offload it... it strikes me as odd. I tested both modules individually and either one causes it to fail the POST. Therefore I doubt I got a set of 2 faulty modules. More likely they are oddball and not compatible with many chipsets.

Other Thoughts: I hate writing negative reviews, but I owe it to my fellow shoppers to raise the question of compatibility on this model. I'm hanging onto these and hoping I find the laptop that eventually runs with them. The latest laptop to fail is an HP Pavilion dm4-1173cl. Same voltage, speed, CAS latency, and rated to take up to 8GB (2x4) of this speed RAM. It shouldn't fail. And it's HP. They don't usually require anything special.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good

Pros: cost

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Exact same specs as the stock ram in my 2012 13inch MBP.
