    I was very hesitant to buy this PNY DDR3 SDRAM Memory Module, because it's for an Apple product (McBook Pro) and Apple's product is pretty difficult to accept anything but Apple. Well, this memory module fit the bill at a fraction of the cost of the Apple's module memory cost. My laptop is very fast now that I upgraded it to 8 MEG using this product.

    Bought this as a quick upgrade in leiu of buying another laptop. My laptop works just fine and has very good specs, just the lack of memory was really getting to me. I thought of buying this as an upgrade and it worked like a wonder! I still need another laptop since mine is over 5 yrs old, but this will hold it together in the meantime... inexpensive too!

    The Price was Right Apple wanted 400.00 to upgrade my macbook pro i7 laptop to 8gb from 4gb and I did it for less than 80.00 As stated the memory is a direct replacement for the installed apple memory and it works great. The computer sped up during processing of photo's in lightroom which is a great benefit.

    It's a stck of RAM. Doesn't get any easier than this for a significant boost in performance. Open up the case and this little guy just snaps right in. With a little Googleing even the least tech savvy can do this upgrade. Dead simple. It took longer to get the case off my Thinkpad than anything, although it's 4 screws and I've done it a time or two.

    I bought this when I bought my new laptop. I didn't really test the laptop much prior to installing this to really give a comparison. However, installing it was as simple as plugging it in. It's not identical to the memory that was already installed, so I was hoping it would work with no issues. It worked immediately. My laptop is super fast with it.

    Being an IT Guy, this is the number one memory I go with! Quick and easy, flawless reliability and smooth install and go on the fly! Mom got a Compaq black Friday deal for a killer price, but of course RAM was where they skimped. Got her up and running very fast and well worth the investment for a mear couple bucks more!

    RAM purchased to replace defective RAM

    I purchased the RAM to replace defective RAM in my computer. I didn't know that it had bad RAM. I thought that the computer was just slow because that's the way it ran since it was new for over a year now. It was replaced by the Geek squad in a matter of minutes. So, my advice is to bring your computer to the Geek squad and have them check it out.

    It is a 4GB stick of memory what more is there to say. I bought this along with a notebook at BB. Went home opened notebook, plugged it in, booted ... Voila 8GB of memory. I never even bothered testing system performance with 4GB as for my needs I knew from a previous machine running only 4GB was a waste of time. Price is on par with NewEgg

    Picked this up to add more Ram to my Dell Latitude e6225 after it started running a little sluggish post Windows 10 upgrade from 7. No trouble installing at all, timing was set by SPD and it matched up to the stock rams timing with no issues. Runs cool with no noticeable changes in power consumption or battery life.

    Each time I try PNY memory, I run into a problem of some sort. I always end up trying returning it after a couple of speed difference changes. Going with a brand like corsair or crucial I have never had a problem with. Same speed as PNY but PNY ALWAYS give me a problem. With different brand laptops etc.

    I needed extra 4 GB memory and looked for it at the Best Buy store online. And I found it to be pretty affordable. I bought and put it in. Finally, the performance was improved to some extent. It got faster and no problem with many applications open. I highly recommend it to those who need extra memory.

    We were readying laptops for a conference and noticed one was very slow. A systems review noted the laptop was so old it had minimal RAM. We purchased this to add to bring the laptop up to the maximum it would hold. The difference was immediately noticeable.

    This product seems to have helped the problem with page crashes b/c of insufficient memory, but these crashes still happen. Thus, it did not fully fix the problem. If there's time in my schedule, I'll take the computer back to Best Buy and inquire since the tech who added the memory is great.

    I tried to upgrade my laptop's RAM from 4 to 8 MB but my computer kept giving me blue screen errors. My laptop is over 10 years old and could not handle this. The cards went in easily and also came out easily

    My Dell computer has been an excellent purchase from Best Buy. But over the last year, updating to Windows 10 and some new software I needed more memory. This boosted my memory over the top. My systems runs fantastic. Thanks to the quality of this memory module upgrade and Geek Squads marvelous work.

    Have had no memory problems since I installed additional memory. It was easy to install and it could have been install by GeekSquad member when we had computer open to verify type of memory was needed. Geek Member said he would install it (1 minute job) what was going to charge me $50,,, No Way.

    I have an Acer Aspire laptop that's about 4 years old and I just wasn't ready to replace it. This memory upgrade was just what I needed. Now, my laptop runs just as fast as a new one and I didn't have to worry about transferring files and settings to a new one. Definitely money well spent!

    My laptop was starting up slow, but since adding chip the system starts about fifty percent faster. I first had doubts that it would work better. But it did improve. My geek did the installation, which saved me the time.

    Upgrading laptop memory is just about the easiest thing you can do, and it will certainly give your companion a boost in performance. Turn off your laptop, remove the bottom access door to your memory slots, remove the old chip, insert this one and button everything back up. That's it!

    I needed to expand my memory as need it for my music recording. It took awhile to get it to fit right( I was being very gentle..too gentle lol) but a heard the click and knew it was in place. I checked my system to see if it recognized the extra added memory and it did! took less than 10mins
