Summary: This RAM has caused a lot of "Please restart your computer" messages. It happens for no real reasons and thus, I have lost quite a lot of my work. Even though it is cheap, it is definitely not worth it, unless Corsair figures out a way to fix this memory. Whenever, I use Lightroom or other memory intensive programs, it crashes. Also, when the laptop is not on a smooth surface (ie. on bed or in my lap), the frequency of the crashes has been observed to be higher.
Summary: - Unnecessarily difficult to remove the sticks out of the plastic packaging. - One stick had damage, rendering it useless. - The other stick worked fine for one start-up, then never worked again. Saw the rebate for 8GB. Thought I could take the chance, even with some negative reviews. No luck of the draw for me this time... heard the 4 beeps on start-up. Switched back to previous RAM and here I am writing the review.
