    Went bad

    For some reason this module went bad after having it just after 2 months. I have never had a module go bad on me that quick. I had bought PNY brand memory before and never an issue. Maybe I just got a bad one or a virus issue I had made it faulter quick.

    I was afraid my computer was on the brink of crashing. It was working SOOOO SLOOOOWWWWW. My computer only contained 2GB memory & I wasn't giving up or losing my photos. So I purchased this memory stick with 8GB & now my computer is working like new again. I am thrilled!!

    I was receiving numerous "blue screen of death" problems, critical errors, causing the computer to restart. Research on line suggested the ram may need to be replaced. This purchase of ram solved the problem and added more ram to my computer making it even faster!

    I've been a customer of Best Buy for several years now. I have never had anything other than excellent service with qualified sales and Geek Squad people. I will continue to refer people for any of their electronic or home appliance needs.

    Buy any Ram you want from different brands but this. This one in single channel is pure nightmare with lots of stuttering, dual channel is better but your applications would still crash sometimes.

    As soon as I installed the memory, my computer blue screened. I tested the ram with memtest86 and it failed several tests. Returned and purchased Crucial ram. Tested fine with no issues. Computer has been fine ever since. Avoid! Would rate 0 stars if I could.

    Bought to upgrade RAM from 4GB to 8 GB in a Win 7 Pro, 64 bit Dell Inspiron 3847 desktop. Works well - the PC is much more responsive now. BestBuy had good pricing. I used in store pickup which is very convenient. Pleased with the process and the results..

    Worked great on every machine I have using DDR 3 memory. I am IT Administrator for a large company, and upgrading RAM is the best way to speed up an older computer.

    Decent RAM

    Nothing Special here. It is fairly basic RAM, similar to what is included with Pre-Built computers. If you have a DDR3 compatible pre-built computer (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc...) and are looking to replace/expand your ram, this should do the trick.

    Little Boost of Power

    This is exactly what my desktop computer needed to make it usable again. Before adding this second ram, it was nearly impossible for the computer to browse the internet

    The product does not come with heat syncs so make sure you are not using for gaming or video editing that would require a heavy load. Other than that it works great and the price would good.

    I'm sure it's wonderful, but I couldn't use it.

    I had to return the memory because it wasn't compatible with the motherboard on the rather old computer I was trying to use it with. My loss for not paying attention to the specs.

    Easy Upgrade

    I ALWAYS trust PNY. The upgrade to my desktop PC was really easy. Turn off, unplug, open the back & insert the DIMM into the open RAM slot. Plug the PC back in and reboot. That's a quick performance boost for the handling of my photos.

    Easy to install; took less than 10 minutes. Works as expected. Prices was right. There not much else to say. It popped in as described. Machine run a little faster. Photo edtting does not crash as it was prone to do before.

    I’m glad bestbuy carried these in store. Installed it into my new PC build and everything booted up fine. You’ll have to configure your settings in bios to get it at 1600Mhz

    My son informed me that his phone had more memory than my computer. I didn't realize how much better my computer would run until my son installed this. I'm grateful he talked me in to purchasing these memory sticks.

    The ram added much more needed speed to my computer. It was definitely worth upgrading and very easy to install. My computer was up and running within 5-10 minutes. I notice the increase speed in my computer :)

    I sadly had to return this memory because it did not work well with my current memory. So if it is to be a stand alone memory then you should be good. I would do some research before expanding current memory with this.

    I purchased this PNY DDr RAM memory for the purpose of upgrading the amount of memory in one of my PC's. It works perfectly and performs just as expected. I highly recommend this well-known product brand as you can't go wrong.
