    The purchase was great, but I learned it was a manufacturer defect, so I had to return it. I purchased another.

    Bad batch

    It convinced me that the PC industry has a complete meltdown, finally, after taken over by smartphonablets. I have upgraded my numerous laptops/PCs since late 90's from 100M->192M , 250M->500M, 500M->1G , to today's 4G->8G upgraded. This is the first time I leave a product review with 1 star in my whole life. And this is also the first time I leave a review to BestBuy. The notion that a 5Gbps cell phone network is going to swipe the whole industry away is always in my mind. I use this laptop to eval a cisco's network monitoring tool that needs extra ram. I have always thought that the late 90's early 00' system bootup memory check was unnecessary because I had never experienced any memory corruption in my whole life during that period. My current laptop does not have bootup memory check. Why does the industry remove the memory checks on all computers? It got old and got cocky. The ram gave me blue screen of death when I ran the big software. I was skeptical at first until I took out the laptop's default 4G ram and attempted to boot with the PNY 4G ram. The boot would fail half of the time. I exchanged the ram at the local store. The new ram would not allow the system to boot most of the time. I returned it and bought another one that was made by Kingston from bestbuy.com . That finally worked. I will leave another 1 star feedback for the second nonfunctional ram. But I will leave a 5 star feedback for the Kinston one. I installed the ram a few times and then pull out my original ram several times and replace it with my other netbook's ram for a few days while deciding to replace it. So many installing tries is the reason I give this product the low rating for ease of installation In conclusion, PC industry is at the pivotal point to a complete change. And this situation of the defective ram shows the beginning of the end.
