5 out of 5 eggsBreathe life into an old laptop

Pros: - Easy installation
- Works (no DOA!)
- Lifetime warranty
- Price

Cons: -N/A

Other Thoughts: Maxed out the RAM + added an SSD to a clients older Toshiba laptop, Fresh install of Windows 8 and it's like a brand new computer. RAM is always an easy upgrade for big performance gains.

2 out of 5 eggsThe exception to the rule

Pros: Well, none.

Cons: Sadly, neither stick turned out ot work properly.
The first was immediately (though not physically) and obviously not working properly. Bluescreens in Windows, system faults in Lubuntu. A memory test showed error after error with that stick.
The second stick seemed to be a winner, and I was content to just have 2gb for the time being. Sadly, it has also failed at least once an hour since I popped it in. I haven't run memory testing on it, but whatever the cause, I now have 2 sticks I can't use, and therefore RMA is necessary.

Other Thoughts: I love G.Skill products. Seriously.
I'll continue to order them. Seriously.
This is the exception to the rule, so far.
If it becomes` the rule, though, I'll be finding a new favorite brand. Please don't make me do that, G.Skill. That's a massive pain in the backside.
Don't send me any more defective RAM.

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear the memory kit is not working properly with your laptop. Please check that you have the latest BIOS. An upgrade may be necessary to improve memory compatibility. Not all laptops can support CL4, CL5 is the standard. Exchange for the G.Skill F2-5300CL5D-4GBSA and it should work flawlessly. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, but it is highly unlikely both modules are completely defective. For any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsGreat...mostly

Pros: Provided exactly the boost my old laptop needed. Shipped in good nick, popped in just fine.

Cons: Only one of the sticks works properly. The other won't work properly, whether I try to run Windows or Lubuntu, or try installing either.
I tried running with both sticks installed, then after repeated crashes, I tried each stick seperately.
One stick works perfectly, the other (or both together) can't make it through boot under any circumstances I've tried.

Other Thoughts: I would like to RMA for a replacement, but I would obviously have to send both back, and I can't afford to have my only computer out of commission for a few days or weeks while I wait out the process. I'm going to have to make do with the single stick, which is still double what I had before.
Hence the 4-egg rating. I know this would be a great purchase if both worked properly.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory works well in your older laptop. With 4GB of low latency RAM, your operating system should be very quick and smooth. In many cases, it may seem like you have a new computer with all the lag alleviated. It is strange a module was defective, but send it in for RMA exchange and we can have a new one out to you shortly. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsNice but not a huge difference for me

Pros: Its nice gskill RAM, with low latency. It did raise the Windows experience index for the "memory" test a few points

Cons: I didnt notice any night-and-day performance difference on the laptop i put it in. Maybe thats because i already had 3GB installed, so i only had a gain of 1GB, or maybe its because the laptop is so old, the RAM cant make that big of a difference.

4 out of 5 eggsInstalled and works perfectly for my HP DV6500t

Pros: Good packaging. Works as expected.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Needed more memory on my laptop (had 2GB), so had to upgrade to Win7 64bit and then this memory module (4GB: 2x2) worked perfectly.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory works perfectly in your HP laptop. This memory kit should provide a nice boost to the system since it is doubling the original factory RAM. Doing so significantly improves the processing power of your computer. With only 2GB, it is easy for the operating system to lag during heavy load such as streaming, video play back, gaming, etc. especially in today's environment. With twice the capacity, you have twice the ability so you should not experience any delays. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine

Pros: This was purchased to max out a Vostro 1500's ram, and so far, so good. Stable, easy to install.

Cons: Memory timing could be better, but this ram has decent timings for the price.

Other Thoughts: A little more pricey than expected, but given it's a few gens old tech at this point, still a good deal to keep machines of the 2000's running.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory was easy to install and works stable in your laptop. This is the ideal memory kit to maximize memory capacity for the Dell Vostro 1500. The memory timings can not be any better, CL4 is the lowest for DDR2-667. With G.Skill, you get the best quality product, price, support, and service, so you can't go wrong. This 4GB kit can make an older system seem new by having the available free space to handle all of today's memory intensive tasks. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

4 out of 5 eggsFine memory but very overpriced

Pros: Memory is fast and dropped in no problem into my old IBM T60 (T7600 with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33 GHz processor running Ubuntu 12.04 and SUSE on a 240 GB SSD). Laptop runs great now and boot up times put Windows/Mac to shame.

Newegg, as usual, is absolutely perfect with regards to the ordering and shipping process. I had this in 5 days from ordering even with the free eggSaver shipping option, Great stuff.

Cons: Memory technology this old should not cost $29 a stick, The price needs to come down to make rebuilding old laptops (expecially pre-Lenovo IBM's which in my belief are the GOLD standard for laptop durability/longevity) more cost effective.

Dear Customer

Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the memory is working fast in your laptop. This is a low latency memory kit that performs very well for certain laptops that can support it. With 4GB installed, the operating system can run very smoothly without any delay or lag. With regards to pricing, unfortunately that is something we can not control. DDR2 is no longer manufactured, so especially for high performance/low latency kits, they will be more expensive because they become more rare by each day. Luckily, they are available to prolong the lifespan and use for older laptops. For any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks As Promised

Pros: Works as designed.
Lower latency than the stock RAM in the Macbok Pro 4,1 it replaced.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I used this RAM to upgrade an early 2008 Penryn MacBook Pro 4,1 from 2GB to 4GB (Max supported). The upgrade was successful, the laptop is snappier and scrolling through busy websites no longer stutters.
