I guess I should have known

Steve C. Michalski "Stevix©", Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: Paying only $6.99 for a 512mb stick of ram would be too good of deal; well it was, tried everything reseating, running on it's own and so on with the same results PC would not boot because of hardware failure - ram. Avoid cheap deals unless you can find someone out there that has high marks; which usually results in high standards.

1 out of 4 DEAD

Taylor S., Newegg
7 September 2011
  • Pros: NOTHING
  • Cons: 1 stick out of the 4 I ordered was DOA. It would blue screen at random times. At first I thought it was the memory controller but nope tried it in a different system and same problem. And in the time it took me to troubleshoot I have gone over the return time.

Budget

Paula R., Newegg
6 November 2010
  • Summary: I understand this is a budget product but the RAM doesnt even come close to being the same product. Not the Egg's fault that Crucial is rebadging cheap stuff and selling it as theirs.
  • Pros: Cheap.
  • Cons: Ordered 2, Came with the same box, with two completely different PCBs and chips. Would not boot my Atom system with both installed, turned out one does not play nice with the other.

Don't let them fool you

Bogey62 "Bill", Amazon
30 March 2009
  • Summary: I love how I write a review of this seller and they respond, but I can't follow-up. They make it out as if I'm the fool for not reading every bit of small print they use. Read my earlier 1 out of 5 review of this seller. They advertise Crucial memory, but ship you Samsung memory. Sure, they tell you it's Samsung IF you go to their Seller page and click on a small link that tells you about the "bait and switch" they pull.

Last Time I Buy Curcial

Salvan B., Newegg
2 August 2007
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: I've been having some issues finding RAM that is compatible with a motherboard I have purchase. So whilst searching, I found myself at Crucial's website, this was amongst the list of RAM "100% guaranteed compatible" with my motherboard... and guess what... it's not.
