Pros: Works great except for one problemo
Cons: Fails to eject on the first try. Press the button and it clunks but no movement. Try a few more times and it will open. Works great after that - writes well, just that first eject after you you fire up the PC has a major malfunction.
Other Thoughts: They all break, Rarely last me more than a year and I would not classify myself as a power users, I burn about 6 DVD a week. This one malfunctioned in about 3 months, been dealing with it 3 more, going to send it back while it is in warranty. But of course that means buying a spare from newegg!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I split this pair up and MIXED it with the stock 1 gig dimms in two laptops. So compatibility is excellent for certain HP laptops that people have named in these reviews.
Cons: I have found none.
Other Thoughts: I picked this memory by
1) Finding what speed and type of dimm my machines required using crucial web site. (They will scan your unit and tell you what you have and what you can use. Often Newegg will beat their price on the same mem, but I always come to Newegg to actually buy. Both companies have great service.)
2) Sort the laptop mem that meets my spec by lowest price looking for good ratings.
3) Read reviews looking for specific mention of verified purchasers who state they used the memory in my exact model, or at least in my series. This memory Fits a lot of HP laptops so I bought it.
1 2Gig went into my HP Pavilion DV2615nr (Says DV2000 on the display and DV2500 on the sticker on the bottom) and 1 2Gig went into my HP Compaq 6910p
This gave me a total of 3 gig in both.
I ran the bios memory diagnostics twice on each machine and then I have loaded OS and operated both laptops for months now with no problems.
So do your homework!
Pros: Fast, dependable. This laptop is used as a server for Magic Jack and posting weather data to the net, so it is on 24x7.
Not noisy or hot for just sitting there on a desk in the kitchen. So we walk by it and work around it all day. I think the fact that is is a lower power dual core AMD w/small screen helps that.
Cons: In your lap you will notice the small vibration and possibly the extra heat.
Other Thoughts: Since I have worked with Hard drives from back in the day when they were the size of washing machines, I exercise a lot of care with movement and probably that helps all my drives lifespan. So your mileage may vary. It always amuses me when I see the way people throw their laptops around like there was no hard drive in them spinning at up to 10k rpm. Buy solid state if you want to treat it like that.READ FULL REVIEW
