      Improved my laptop performance!

      I bought a $200 refurbished Dell laptop for my 10 yr old daughter as her only Christmas present last year. It worked fine for surfing the Internet and the basic applications a 10 year old would use. I returned to college this fall and have been using her laptop to submit homework as mine had died a few years ago. I suddenly became very frustrated with how slow it took to do anything. It came with 4Gb of RAM and after I upgraded to the two 8gb cards, I noticed a considerable difference in improved performance! I previously worked with AutoCAD in my career field and had a $3300 company laptop to design parts with. I realized very quickly how spoiled I had become when it took my daughter's laptop almost 90 minutes to install Microsoft Office 365 (before increasing RAM)! Before installing the new RAM, the task manager would show the amount of memory used at 99%. After installing the new RAM, the memory in use is usually around 20-40% and the processor now gets shown at 99% when I'm doing more than a few things at once. I noticed improvements in how fast programs opened up and were actually ready to use instead of waiting for the program to finish loading before your able to click on anything. The improvement in RAM was considerably noticeable, but since the processor was also slower, it wasn't the amount of improvement I was hoping for. (I did convince the Mrs to let me buy a new laptop for school as a result... Hello INTEL XEON!) Depending on the specs of your current RAM and processor, you may have better results than I did after upgrading your RAM. I am happy with my purchase. For the price, I figured it was worth the investment. Even if it wasn't the performance improvement I was looking for, I knew it was an improvement my daughter could benefit from. Overall, in my personal opinion, I believe the RAM was priced reasonably and it did improve the performance of my laptop. Based on my previous work computer, I had unrealistic expectations on how much improved performance I was going receive. My daughter's $200 refurbished laptop isn't going to perform the same as a laptop designed to run AutoCAD. I would recommend these, but I am very impatient. If you can wait to have them delivered, they are priced differently on other retailer websites. I couldn't wait and bought mine in store. Assuming you are increasing your RAM by at least 4Gb, you should be able to see a difference in your computer performance.

      Extra Memory for HP Notebook

      Despite the uncertainty of the sales person at Best Buy I decided to take it home and try it, thanks to Best Buy's excellent return policy. It took me all of 5 min to take the cover off of the HP Pavilion TS 15 Notebook memory card slots and remove the single 4g RAM card & install these two 8g RAM cards. The MS Win 10 Home operating system started up without a glitch and recognized the new memory without any problem at all. The OS that was getting so slow and would often bog down is operating much better now. The reason for the uncertainty of the sales rep was due to the lack of clarity on the packaging of the cards. If you will take note the Best Buy website lists the cards as "DDR3L" but on the packaging it only indicates it as "DDR3". The other discrepancy was that on the package it listed the voltage as 1.35 versus 1.5 so that is why the sales rep was uncertain. If the package would have had the "DDR3L" it would have agreed with 1.35 voltage and it would not have created the uncertainty.

      We were looking to upgrade the Samsung RC512 i7 laptop from the standard 6GB to 16GB. Samsung and all the online memory sites stated the max memory for the system was 8GB. I could not find any technical reason why any generation i7 could not address 16GB or DDR3 with a 64bit Windows 10 running on the laptop. I can only figure that at the time the laptop was sold, 8GB modules were not readily available and no one went back to update the specs. We upgraded the RAM while in the parking lot of Best Buy and saw the system successfully POST and boot into Windows 10 recognizing all 16GB. Back home we ran a full memory test and have not seen any problems for weeks now. This was an excellent upgrade to get more life out of a still useful quad core i7 laptop. Best Buy made this upgrade purchase easier, since we could test out if it would work and had the option to return it right then.

      Rule#1 Replace with same size memory and same type. Rule 2) Avoid off brand names in most instances R@m is guaranteed for life by the manufacturer who in this case is PNY WHO are really becoming mover and shakers in the industry again with its R@m, SSD (fastest internal SSD as of this writing.) Rule 3) Remember, what ToeKnee reminds you every time those being too thrifty to buy off brands like Yum Yum and Bing Bang end up paying twice as much and threaten their own stability and time by risky and questionable sources. Buy name brands. Buy Best Buy. Join their programs and maybe you will get a BB Hat and TShirt from Sasha the head Blogger for Best Buy! I am ToeKnee and I am out of here and blazing away with another in depth revue of intricate parts of running as fast you can per dollar and doing so wisely and being the best Road Warrior on the Planet..

      I wanted to upgrade a two year old touch screen ASUS to use for photo editing. I had it stripped down to default and then upgraded with Windows 10. As it had 8 gb of memory (4gb x 2 chips) I wanted to upgrade it to 16 gb so there would be no lag. I researched via the application chart at BestBuy and bought a two pack of PNY 8gb memory chips. I found a youtube video on the replacement process, and had the new chips in the machine in about 10 minutes. No problems during this process, and now it runs very fast. I have heard that upgrading RAM can sometimes cause compatibility issues with programs already installed on the laptop. So I made sure to upgrade the RAM on a stripped machine, before I started installing Photoshop and other programs.

      Specs say its 1.5 volt but it's really 1.35v

      I know it says its DDR3L in the title but when I drilled down on the specs it said it was 1.5v in two separate places. Almost didn't buy it but the picture of the packaging said it was 1.35v when I zoomed in, so I took a chance. Needed the low voltage for a macbook pro I was putting it into. Worked great. Just really wish the price was a little more in line with what online retailers are charging for the same stuff. If I didn't need it same day I would've probably ordered from somewhere else. Hope they update the specs - I almost bought elsewhere just based on the incorrect info.

      Years ago I bought an Apple Mac Mini that came with 4 GM Ram. love the Mac Mini, but it was getting into problems with multi windows and streaming at the same time. Even the Best Buy weekly ad was slowing the computer. IF you have a Mac Mini with RAM that can be removed, by all means upgrade to max RAM of 16 GB. MAC runs a lot faster with no hiccups . Easily extends the life of my Mac Mini by a few more years. Just make sure you get the RAM that exactly fits your model and has removable Memory.

      The Price is just amazing below all other similar size ram! and if you read reviews or watch some videos on YouTube you will know a RAM is a RAM you can't go wrong with it. Work great for the last few months on my Dell Inspiron N5110 ( yeah i know it should be limited to 8GB on this laptop but it's really not ;) ) Plus buying from BestBuy is so convenient since they gave you 15 Days return policy with no restocking fee (I would never buy from these guys) anyway so if it didn't work correct with you (Unlikely to happen) for incompatibility you can return it for full refund.
