After checking my own RAM in my PC, I have decided to buy this product. As of today, it works perfectly fine; my PC is a lot faster. Also, this RAM is pretty cheap compared to most RAMs available on the market.
Ram prices have gone up a little, so for super budget builds this is ideal as 2Gb is satisfactory for a low cost/office computer. The DIMM is single rank as described and a "low profile" type.
At the moment pricing is actually slightly cheaper for 2x2 Gb sticks than one 4Gb stick. I stopped using Crucial ram as my return rate was alarmingly high (even for the high end premium ram) and the customer support was very poor (slow replacement time and excuses from customer service). I'm pleased to say I have, so far, not encountered a problem with any of the Kingston ram I have bought and used.
Having defective ram is a chore esp when you have to return it, Kingston has proved to be very reliable and unless you are a hard core overclocker or an APU user (shared graphics ram speed is important), the value ram is more than good enough for most people.
Not the most expensive ram on the market but it works brilliantly (I bought 4 x 2 GB slices) and my Windows 7 system is now flying along. Brilliant and also very telling. When I bought the system it had 3GB and was a quick unit. After a year of adding different software the good old Windows memory holes were sucking the life out of it and me. Performance was appalling and my poor hard drive was thrashing so hard I thought it might catch fire. Upgraded to 8GB and everything is great.
yo! it was fun opening up my computer and adding the extra 2gb of ram. might buy 2x4gb ram and max my comp abilities with win 7 upgrade.
go ahead. have fun maxing out your desktop and don't be afraid. read and watch helpful youtube vids on installing ram and always use an anti-stat wrist band. dont risk messing things up. research first and have fun.
Any one having a gripe with Kingston value RAM is of their heads,It scores a very tasty 7.6 in windows index,consider the top value index is 7.9.My new computer had 4GB of Kingston value RAM already installed,I installed a further 4GB of Kingston value RAM.It has been confirmed by my pc that indeed it has 8GB of RAM.It works,it works well and i have no room for complaints.
ordered on the 9th late at night recieved on the 11th good packaging , very pleased , put the ram in pc no problems at all and all is running fine , lets hope it stays that way overall excellent service and great price
