This review is from: CORSAIR Vengeance Performance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1866 (PC3L 15000) Laptop Memory Model CMSX8GX3M2B1866C10
Pros: Works great at 1600Mhz, noticable improvement over my old 1x4GB 1333Mhz.
Cons: Can't get it to run at 1866Mhz on my Acer Aspire V3-551-8887 (AMD A8-4500M processor). Think it's a BIOS compatibility problem becuase no matter what I do neither the CAS latency nor the frequency changes. Even reflashing the spd settings of the RAM had no effect. Doesn't help that the BIOS is locked. The laptop should be compatible with 1866Mhz according to both AMD and Crucial, but no such luck.
Other Thoughts: Make very sure your setup is compatible, especially if you have a locked BIOS.
