    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

    I compared both the kingston ram and this pny memory with my benchmark testing software and to my surprise this memory performed better. I used the same pc to do the testing. When running windows 10 , 8gb of memory is a must so I purchased two of these modules. I would definitely recommend this memory!!

    Researched other reviews to make sure I was getting the right memory. Apple wanted $400 for 8gig of memory for the Mac mini. Got 2 x 4 gig sticks onsale for $18 each, popped them in and booted up. Sooo easy. Thanks to comments from others that guided me.

    I was not expecting the best out this memory from PNY but it was on sale and reviews seemed to be good for it, so i took a chance and everything seems great. I updated a macbook pro 13" to 8gb, it upgrades the graphical memory as well, and everything seems great.

    I ordered two of these online and picked them up in-store because they were SUPPOSED to work in my MacBook. However, while the modules I picked up had the correct Model Number, something must have changed along with the packaging, because they didn't work. So I had to just return them.

    Does not work for 2009 Macbook Pro

    Does not work on a Mac, and, in fact, produces some of the strangest symptoms of incompatibility I've ever seen. Usually with incompatible RAM the computer won't post up. With this ram, it'll run, but shut down on it's own pretty consistently, and corrupted every hard drive connected to it.

    Bought this of the shelf, installed easily it in my Toshiba laptop. Worked flawlessly, increased overall speed of my laptop. Added it to my existing 2GB memory module card by replacing a 1 GB memory. Considering replacing the remaining 2GB memory with another 4 GB PNY to upgrade my laptop to 8GB.

    Charlene called me to tell me her pc was very sluggish, so I took a look at her system settings and realized she was running windows 8 on only 4 gigs. Went over to best buy and found a 4 gig memory chip so I could bring her system up to 8 gigs total,.... painless up grade would do it again.

    This memory does not meet the standards for Apple MacBook computers. Apple has a specific spec for buffering, and this memory does not meet the spec. It would be nice if PNY would mention this, as I'm sure it would save them a lot of returns of their memory.

    My wife's Dell laptop was bought with 4 Gig of RAM. It was time to upgrade, so I purchased 2 of these 4 Gig RAM boards to replace the two 2 Gig RAM boards that were in it. That plus an SSD HD made boot up times go from 1 1/2 to 2 minutes to a screaming 15 to 18 seconds. My wife is very happy.

    Our Acer Aspire One netbook was running slow when just surfing the internet. The 2Gb of memory it had were being used to the max. It took about 5 minutes to install, most of that time was removing 1 screw. It booted up with no problem and extended the life of the netbook by maybe a year.

    I had troubles with pny ram before, but this ram was good. It helped to boost my laptop, and stopped it from all the crashes it was experiencing prior with the old pny ram. I don’t know if the old ram was part of a bad batch, but the new one worked excellent

    After being on 4GB of Ram for three years suddenly I had a realization moment and decided to speed up my laptop and purchased this product. I feel as long as I can keep my laptop from viruses it can go on for a few more years just beacuse of this upgrade to my HP Probook 4530s.

    It works in my macbook. The customer service was friendly. I'm the kind of customer who lives to waste time. So I don't mind jumping through hoops. Only thing I should have done was purchase more ram to get 16 I only got 8 cause it apple officially support that.

    Needed to improve the performance of my netbook and didn't have the time to wait for a shipment online. Went into Best Buy, found this product, took it home and wa-lah, it worked without a problem. Faster speeds from my netbook without any installation issues. Thanks BB!

    My laptop came with Windows 7 Professional and 4 Gigs of memory. It was so slow it couldn't get out of its own way. I bought 4 Gigs of PNY DDRs Sdram and the difference it made was like night and day. Excellent product. It happened to be sale, too. Doulbe happy.

    I've been meaning to upgrade my laptop ever since I got it. Sure, it worked just fine, but I'm a guy. "More power," you know? And in that case, this memory upgrade more than pulls it off. It didn't cost a lot of money, either, so win/win.
