My computer needed a serious upgrade from the initial 512MB of RAM that came with my HP Pavilion. I was also skeptical about opening the Notebook by myself and installing the memory chip. As soon as the 3 year extended warranty expired from HP, I jumped at the opportunity to upgrade by opening the back of the Notebook and putting this 1GB RAM in. It just took me 2 mins to remove one of the 256Meg RAMs and putting the new 1GB RAM. Now I have 1.25GB RAM and the computer boots much more quickly and I see a tremendous improvement in the speed. Great buy. I really wish Buy.com would improve their handling and shipping speed. They can definitely learn from J&R or B&H. It took a while for me to receive the memory. I am yet to receive the $20 rebate back from Crucial but let me see how good Crucial is in hororing their word.
