I installed 3 in desktop pc all at once.plugged in wait for the click.worked as advertised,fast chip,very good quality and workmanship.will buy from crucial if the need arises again.no problems,no worry about mismatch,as long as you use thier memory tool on webpage.matches memory to your computer.so easy.
I've always trusted Crucial memory for my computers over the years and this 16GB kit (2x8GB) was installed in my son's HP Pavilion 550 desktop computer.
Using crucial's website, I was easily able to confirm the kit was the correct type for his PC.It was very easy to install, and my son states the boot up time is much faster and he notices less lag when he has multiple applications open on the desktop now that he has doubled the RAM (went from 8gb to 16gb).
Did exactly what it's supposed to do with no problems at all.
Work as described, had to have them installed professionally because the Dell 3250 I have made replacing RAM an exercise akin to building a new machine from scratch.
Ordered these in May and everything seemed ok, By October, getting BSOD's and shutdowns.
Will RMA but at this point, I'm looking at replacing with KingstonUpdate: I ran Memtest 86 and Memory Diagnostic on the two 8 GB modules in slot #1 of my XPS 8700 separately and it turns one is now defective.
The other 8GB module has no defects, so I am returning and replacing one module, Still not happy to have one go out within 6 months.
Received a previously opened package.
Just feel like this type of product is sensitive enough to damage that when I pay for new I deserve new.
