    I wanted to upgrade the 4gb ram in my HP laptop to 8gb. After researching, I decided to go straight to BestBuy for the PNY ram. Reviews were good and price was acceptable comparing to buying online. The sales person helping me actually said to me that most laptops won't accept this ram, and I could return it if I have an issue. I was hesitant but took a chance. I installed it, it seemed to work great for about 3hrs. Then my laptop went into a failure screen I have never seen before. My laptop tried for hours to "fix the problem". I gave up and re installed my old 4gb and problem solved. I really need to get a 8gb ram for my HP laptop to help me with my multitasking programs. I don't know what to do now. I gave this 2 stars because it worked for 3hrs, the salesman was honest (5 stars there) and returning it was a breeze (5 stars). Would be nice to see a comparability chart on the package so the customer doesn't have to take the 50/50 chance.

    The product DOES operate as the packaging says. The installation was complicated by my home network and customer support said that I needed to open 4 different ports on my router, but they couldn't help me do it. It was a complication with my network, but I've also never had any problem installing hue lights, amazon echo, Nest smoke alarm, or my smarttings hub, why the problem with MyQ? I did finally get it to work. I admit that I confused my research as I thought this product connected with other home automation systems... but there is no official support for Apple HomeKit, no Amazon Echo support, I understand that some can get it connected to SmartHome but it will only open the garage door and not close it. There is also no IFTT support. At this point in the home automation timeline it shuld be connecting to multiple systems to broaden it's cababilites. Actually right now the only thing it does is open and close the door and let you know when it's opened or closed. No ability to schedule users for access, no ability to voice command over Echo, nothing. Like I said it worked as advertised, but the limited capabilites aren't worth it. I returned it, paid $35 more for the gogogate and will be getting IFTT connectivity, user configurations, and the ability to connect to a video camera to view the garage on the gogogate app.

    PRODUCT REVIEW: The product works as expected. COMMENT: I gave it 4 stars only because I'm not a tech person and needed help selecting the right RAM for my laptop. It took quite some time to find someone and when I did they were from a different department. They told me to wait "here" they would get someone. after 15 minutes no one showed, so off I went to find someone else. I finally gave up, took the RAM to the Geek Squad counter where I waited another 10 min before someone had time to look at my old RAM and say "Yep that's the right one". I understand they are busy but don't leave standing there. Come back and simply say everyone is busy and check back so I know that I wasn't forgotten about. guess Best Buy isn't immune to Big Box Store Syndrome.

    Purchased for MacBook - details below

    This memory works in a MacBook white chassis (mid 2010 design). While the speed had a higher rating than what was supported, when I left one of the original 2 GB sticks (operating at the correct speed) in the system, this memory clocked itself down to the correct 1066 MHz and operates very well. The memory alone in the system would not function but as long as you left one dimm in the system operating at the correct frequency, it worked great. Highly recommended for any laptop needing a boost in memory as it (combined with a new SSD drive) will take any old laptop and make it perform like a racing machine.

    I went into Best Buy to buy RAM for an older Dell laptop that I bought online. I actually went in to buy a different brand, but this one was quite a bit more affordable. Asked a salesperson there what the difference was. He looked them both over and we couldn't find any difference whatsoever. Told me if I had issues with it or if it didn't work, I could always bring it back. This was an awesome purchase. Really sped up the Dell and now works like a nearly new computer. Best part: it was in stock and could go and get it right away. I didn't have to wait for an online company to send it to me. Great product; excellent service at Ames Best Buy.

    These are very fast drives, even if you do not have the fastest SATA revision, you will notice substantial performance increase. This drive, despite being 'name brand' (really about the top name brand) was reduced to about the same price as PNY (my usual Best Buy purchase). Yes, if you read around the net Samsung SSD's did have a firmware issue a little more than a year ago. This is now not the case. As with traditional drives they can really use room to breath and dont like being banged around too much.....use rubberized standoff mounts and put it near a fan.

    I was trying to install extra ram for my new bought lap top Dell 7567, the custom advisor introduced this RAM for me, and then I paid $40 for the install fee, but the problem is the staff told me that this RAM doesn't fit my laptop, cause it is not DDR4 ram, that's why I returned, overall, the service was good, the product had no problem, just because it doesn't fit my laptop, and advisor didn't know it too. I'm sorry I returned it, but I have to..sorry.

    Installed this memory in my buddies Dell laptop when he upgraded to windows 10. The laptop would fail to post when installed. I could not get into bios and change any settings to try and get it to work despite matching type and speed of old memory. Droped it into my personal Laptop to test. Even with mixed memory brands and cls rating my Asus laptop posted fine and no errors in memery occurred during casual use. I think this is more Dell's fault for lackluster compatibility and bios software than it is the memory's fault.
