An all around great buying experience. I would consider myself an advanced computer hardware and software user, but the chips are relatively easy to install. I opened the Memory compartment of my daughter's Sony Viao and removed the single chip that was already installed. I installed the two new 1GB RAM chips into the top and bottom slots (be careful here; the bottoms or 'pin sides' of the chips go in first, and at an angle, then they can be pushed down until they are lying flat) DO NOT FORCE THEM! If they aren't going in relatively easily, take them out and try again. Be careful with the tiny screws that hold the RAM Compartments shut. I dropped one inside the laptop and it took minutes of careful shaking to retrieve it. Once the RAM modules are installed, power-on the laptop and (if the chips were installed properly, it should boot through to the operating system without fault) in Windows, go to the Control Panel, then to System and it should display the amount of RAM present on the Computer. If it says 2048 (or close to this number) you have installed the 2Gb chips successfully! If the number reads 1024 (or similar) Gigs of RAM, then one of the chips are not seated properly. Power-down the laptop, open the RAM compartment again and reseat the chips. If one is noticably looser or not seated, just reseating this one should do it. Pwr on the machine again, and again check the RAM amount displayed in the Window's System Properties.

I don't own this RAM, so ignore the rating above. I just want to show how I was disgusted with one of the reviewers below who gave this product a bad review because the RAM doesn't work in his/her computer. The specification for this RAM is that it is DDR2 (Notice the number TWO after the DDR). A Dell Inspiron 700m uses DDR RAM with max of PC3200, not PC5300. Dell recommended PC2700 for the 700m. I OWN a Dell Inspiron 700m so I know what I'm talking about. You should NEVER try to install DDR2 RAM into a computer that uses DDR and vice versa. DDR3 is coming out... now you really really need to watch out. Don't open up your computer unless you know what you're doing. I encourage people who like to rate products to rate them in a fair way that would justify their rating. For example: I would never give a certain product a bad rating unless I have tested several copies the product with reproducible faults. Again, I am a very knowledgible person when it comes to computer parts. I assemble computers as a hobby. I've built many computers for family, friends, and work and they have worked seamlessly for years. So believe me when I say that the person who gave this RAM a bad rating because it "doesn't work" in his/her notebook computer has NO idea what he/she was talking about.
