    Great for AiO (All in Ones)

    Bought this RAM for an older AiO desktop that was getting sluggish as websites are becoming more RAM hogs aha. Replaced my 4GB card for this one and not only do sites load faster, but the system itself picked up speed as well. Just keep in mind, this ain't gonna make your computer act like brand new, but it'll make a noticeable difference.

    I was a little hesitant to buy this for a MacBook Pro because there are other SODIMMS specifically sold as "for Apple." Since this item was on sale and the specs were correct, I bought it anyway. Installation only took 5 minutes. Works great, and it improved the performance notably when I need to have several applications running at the same time.

    Upgraded two all in one PC's from 4GB to 8GB. Another all in one PC and my laptop upgraded from 4GB to 12GB. All are performing much better. If you are upgrading memory on an all in one, it takes the same memory as a laptop. If you want to upgrade memory on a tower it is a different memory. Plus bought all this memory on sale. What a bargain. Thanks Best Buy.

    First time I have ever attempted to upgrade memory on a computer. Bought this for an AIO for my business. The employee at the store was very helpful so that I got the right card for my computer. Went online and watched you-tube video on adding memory and did it in about 10 minutes. Computer now works much faster with increased RAM. Glad I did this.

    I got these because I got a laptop brand new off of craigslist, and it's got 20gb of memory and 2gb of ram. Which is nothing. I also didn't have a ton of money to spend on the components, so that worked out in that regard as well. All around impressed with the quality of the product, the shipping, and the customer service that this order entailed.

    My 2nd time around with this product. Bought for my MacBook Pro and it was an instant performance upgrade. This one is for my daughter. With over 30 years of IT experience, I prefer a known manufacturer and PNY has been around and actually extensively tests its products. Apple compatible too! Easy to install.

    I have updated my 6 gb toshiba laptop to 12 gb,which was a pain to upgrade because there wasnt any bottom cover, I had to remove the whole back to access memory module, and after the install it run a little faster and did not lag even if I have multiple windows open. I Recommend this upgrade to everyone whose laptop is 6 gb or less.

    Better than buying a laptop with that extra 8GB

    I bought this immediately after I purchased my laptop which came with 8GB out of the box. I had already researched the price and the specs of this RAM, and I saved $100 by getting this rather than upgrading my laptop to 16GB out of the box. Has worked perfectly well for more than 6 months now, so I am happy with the product

    Had a problem with my computer recycling startup nonstop because of a corrupted version of the Classic Shell. Unit ran very slow and took forever to startup. GEEK Squad replaced failed 8gb RAM stick. Cleaned up files and removed all viruses, reduced the number of programs at startup and the unit runs smoothly.

    Memory worked fine in the laptop I bought it for. Not much to say except that it works as it should. Have been buying PNY memory sticks and SSDs for over two years now and never had a single problem with any of them. 5 stars for the product but the Best Buy price is too high. You can do better from other online stores.

    I bought to complement the existing 8GB of RAM in the http://www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-15-6-laptop-intel-core-i7-8gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive-128gb-solid-state-drive-black/5088502.p?skuId=5088502 that I got from BestBuy. New memory was immediately recognized at boot up and didn't require any follow-ups from my side.

    This memory is great if you have a second 8 GB stick. If you have 2 4 GB sticks of RAM, I would suggest buying a pair of these to bunp up to 16 GB's...while your are at it, install an SSD and it will be like buying a new machine :)

    Decent price, can't really beat Bestbuy price match tho, that's why I always buy all my electronics there. Knocked one star because some desktops now use mobile size ram sticks and we had to do some research to make sure that stick would work because it's advertise as for notebook on their packaging.

    If your laptop supports it, this is a great module. It lets you add a whopping amount of memory in one shot. Many laptops don't accept more than eight GB in total. Be sure he checked the specs for your laptop. You may be better off with a smaller module. For me it makes a nice difference in photo processing.

    works on older computers my Dell is almost 10 years old and the inside says DDR3 however, one cannot mix and match. The same memory module per slot, with the same voltage or it does not work. i.e. 8GB memory stick will not work with an additional 4GB stick, but alone it will...

    Used this RAM to upgrade an Asus laptop from 6GB total to 12GB total RAM. Windows 8 recognized it immediately with no issues. Clock speeds were consistent with spec'd values. Price point was on par with most averages, so this was neither great value or terrible value for the price.

    It works as described. Very simple: I opened my laptop, plugged into the 2nd RAM slot : the first slot was taken by my original 4GB RAM. Once plugged in it becomes 12GB RAM. Works seamlessly. Makes my 5 year old laptop much faster, less fan activity. The upgrade is well worth the cost.
