Want to save money and get a quality memory module product. Read on?
Recently I upgraded my computer memory from SDRAM to PC2100 DDR RAM and after a little bit of research using google (of course) and talking to a few friends Crucial technology was recommended. In the past I had used EBUYER but this time was not happy with them as they have introduced delivery charges which are not acceptable for small orders, memory sticks don’t weigh much so what is the point of paying 4-5 pounds.
***Who Are They?***
Crucial Technology began life in 1996 and is an international company trading in a number of EC countries including UK as well as the United States, Canada and Japan. In the UK It is a division of Micron Europe Limited a wholly owned subsidiary of US based Micron Technology, one of the big three players in PC memory market in the world.
***Why Should I Order From Them?***
The unique point about crucial technology As far as I am aware is that it is the only company in the UK that sells memory direct from its parent-owned factory based in East Kilbride Scotland thus avoiding the middleman and passing on the savings directly to the customer.
Crucial Technology also offer a free limited life time guarantee on their quality memory products and graphic cards (only sell two types of Radeon cards) should something go wrong in day-to-day usage. What this means is that if the product fails itself and not through misuse or a freak accident it is replaced or in some cases refunded. It is a clever marketing ploy really as unless you were born on Friday the 13th nothing much goes wrong with the memory modules.
The most convenient way to order is online at http://www.crucial.com/uk/
Crucial Technology site is very user friendly and easy to navigate. A great deal of care has been taken to assist the customer in choosing the best product for them. If needed, On-line documentation assists you step by step to purchase the memory most compatible for your system.
This is achieved by using Crucial Memory Selector whereby you tell the system either the motherboard manufacturer and the model number or PC manufacturer and the PC model name and a list of all the different memory compatible to your motherboard will be displayed. Also you can select the memory by its type, for example SDRAM or DDR RAM.
I ordered some DDR memory at lunchtime and it arrived next day. Friends who have also used crucial technology had no problems with either the service or the products in the past. In the future when I need any type of memory I know where to go. Crucial technology can’t go wrong with apparently excellent customer service, quality products, no delivery cost and free limited life time guarantee, although in some cases they may charge a 20% surcharge for returns if the customer doesn’t give a satisfactory reason for returning the product. As an incentive a 10% discount is given to all on-line order and generally. Royal Mail delivers most products next day as long as the order is placed before 5.30pm Monday-Friday.
