Summary: I've ordered the 2x1GB Dual Channel Kit before from Amazon, which comes in a shrink wrapped package. The PNY logo is everywhere. I ordered 7 of these from Link-Tronics, in 2 separate orders. Pros: Items came quickly, shipped through USPS. The item was in a sealed anti-static package. They seem to work fine.
Summary: Wanted to increase the memory on an old Dell Dimension 4600. I have dealt with PNY memory before and have had no problems with their memory sticks. The item arrived on the date Amazon said it would. Installed in the Dell and the system recognized the increase in memory with no problems encountered.
Summary: These worked fine as a memory upgrade in my HP PC. It helps reduce disk thrashing resulting from large files being paged out to disk from memory. If you have a laptop, less disk thrashing means longer battery time. You might want to verify the compatibility with one of the memory configuration lists on some of the websites.
Summary: My computer is about 8 years old & it was way past time for a memory upgrade. Love my PC now. People throw things away too easily these days. Besides, I get to keep windows XP & don't have to worry about my printers & other things working with windows 7. My computer is very fast now. Noting to adding this memory. If you think you can't do it. You're probably wrong.
Summary: I ordered the memory upgrade so I could get some better performance from my PC. They are packaged well and I was able to quickly install them. Upon power up my computer recognized them right away and shows I now have 2GB of memory. Good deal in my eyes.
Summary: What more can be said, as PNY is a trusted memory supplier to OEMs and also in the upgrade market. These modules fit perfectly, run at their advertised speeds, and will work well in your PC build or upgrade. In the 12 or so years I've used PNY memory modules in my upgrades, I have never had a failure. Not ONE! Buy it, you'll not be disappointed!
