Works in Thinkpad T460

Crucial 16GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT204864BF160B
Crucial 16GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT204864BF160B

Pros: Running this in one slot, and the 4GB factory SODIMM in the other slot. These play nice together.

Cons: As of this writing (March 2016) it costs about 50% more than ddr4.

Overall Review: Crucial are not (now) offering any guidance for the T460. For what it works, this works in mine.

Most Critical Review

Poor Sensitivity

Hauppauge 1229 WinTV-HVR-2255 Dual TV Tuner / Encoder

Pros: Works well with Vista, including Media Center, after downloading the most recent driver.

Cons: Extremely poor tuner sensitivity. Like Bob, JC, Tsquared and Saltydawg said. I've tried several antenna with it, including rooftop and can only get the strongest two stations. By contrast, my TV's built-in tuner gets all the local stations just fine with rabbit ears!

Overall Review: Might be fine for clear QAM (cable) but not OK for over-the-air.

Excellent

Pros: I've used about half the package now. Every one has worked.

Cons: none worth mentioning.

Overall Review: Would be nice if the back of the disk were writable with a ball point pen. No nock on this product, just a personal preference.
