Go On Ram It In.....

AdvantagesExcellent speedy RAM store. Superb FAQ and memory selector service

DisadvantagesNone to report.

"..which is what you should not do.. be very gentle with RAM - that's memory for the computer to you and me. Update 8/7/02 - Well I decided to upgrade the RAM again in this very same PC that I've had for just over a year now. Of course I chose Crucial again, based on my experiences in July 2001.

Memory from Crucial.com

AdvantagesExcellent Reputation, Memory Selector Wizard

DisadvantagesAlthough low, prices were higer than competition

"...a few colleagues onto the crucial.com website. *Crucial Technology* Crucial Technology Europe is a division of Micron Semiconductor Products, Inc and was launched by Micron in November 1996. Their basis was to be able to sell high-quality memory direct from the Manufacturers to the end users. *Crucial.com Website* The Crucial website is very user-friendly.

Even an idiot like me can do it with Crucial...

AdvantagesCheap, great range, brilliant service, fast free delivery, quality memory

DisadvantagesNone

"I decided to upgrade my memory as my PC is two years old now and while it's still giving faithful service, I've filled up up with a fair few progams, and this had caused it to slow down. As it came with 64Mb of RAM and most PCs now seem to have at least 128Mb, and I'd read memory was of the easiest and cheapest upgrades, I decided to try upgrading my memory. However I had no idea about these things- I'm reasonably competent at working basic Windows ..." Read review

REMEMBER ME?

AdvantagesExcellent site layout; Easy to use; Free 'n' fast delievery; good prices...

DisadvantagesNone

"Memory is an essential part of any computer system, and yet it seems to me that when people come to upgrading they are scared off by the fact that they need to open up the case and actually bung it in themselves! If this sounds like you then fear not, I used to be the same, but no more after having found Crucial.com/uk. A brief word about memory first. Memory prices are fairly low at the moment, and if your computer is prone to grinding to a halt ..." Read review

Crucial upgrade is at hand

AdvantagesVery fast and free delivery, great support for all systems, great prices!

DisadvantagesNone.

"It was just like Christmas day (it's almost Christmas) and for my present I thought I would buy myself some RAM to keep ahead of the times. I intentionally ordered early so that I could get it in time for Christmas as I thought this whole online shopping mumbo jumbo could take some time being Christmas and all. How wrong was I! I ordered on Sunday evening 512MB of PC133 SDMRAM and it came early Tuesday morning by Royal Mail Special Deliver (at no ..." Read review

Quality Products at Cheap Price

Advantagesnext delivery, no hassle, cheap and quality products

Disadvantageslimited range as they sell their own products

"***Introduction*** 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 ..." Read review

AdvantagesGet the right memory for your machine, free next-day delivery.

DisadvantagesNo disadvantages noted.

"It couldn't be easier than at Crucial... If you've got a crosshead screwdriver then you can be assured that you can't go wrong. At Crucial's UK website http://www.crucial.com/uk/ you can search for the type of memory you need by type and it's very quick and simple to order on-line. If you don't know what kind of memory you need (SIMM, DIMM etc) then you can select what kind of computer you have and it will tell you the kinds of memory which ..." Read review

No short term memory loss here

AdvantagesGreat prices especially on DDR memory, beautiful layout, lots of help for newbies to upgrading, complete list of memory products

Disadvantages12 months warranty if you buy using a credit card.

"Well I upgraded my processor and my motherboard, and although the motherboard supports both flavours of ram (SDRAM & DDRRAM) I decided that some new memory might be in order as well so I decided to buy myself 256Mb of PC2100 DDR-RAM. Scouring my usual sources showed that it cost a bit more than PC133 SD-RAM at around Ģ33 per stick. As I have some friends who run a computer shop (I'm actually building them a web site...slowly) I was offered some at ..." Read review

It's Crucial

AdvantagesVery reliable, good quality, 10% discount, free delivery, very good prices

DisadvantagesPink foam? Call me pedantic but Hey..

"One of the first rules of computing is that you can never have enough memory. The second of course is that you never have enough disk space. Never trust anyone who tells you otherwise, especially that dodgy seller who assures you his second-hand 80486 100MHz with 8MB RAM will 'sufficiently meet your ultimate gaming needs' :) Windows (which most of us probably use) is a memory hungry thing, and hogs all it can get. With Windows 95/98, 32MB is recommended ..." Read review

RAM IT TO ME BABY, OH YEAH...

AdvantagesExcellent prices, brilliant service

DisadvantagesYou don't like your goods at a cheap price?!!!

"I recently came to the conclusion that it was time for me to carry out an upgrade on my PC. The processor was still fine but the machine was crying out for some more memory (RAM). To be honest I had absolutely no idea where to start although I did know that I needed SDRAM and that I wanted a second set of 64mb to take me up to a more reasonable 128mb in total. I had heard of Crucial before, they are supposed to be THE memory experts. So off ..." Read review

Wow....

AdvantagesGood fast service

DisadvantagesWebsite could be a little better

"I have only dealt with this company twice, and both of those times were this week. On both occasions I have found their service nothing less that breathe taking. I have had some money to burn this week, as I dont have to save for my wedding no more. So what could I spend my money one?? A) My darling wife? B) Or My darling and impressive Multivision Computer. Theres no choice in the matter, and decided to buy extra memory while the prices ..." Read review

"I decided to get my computer some more memory, just to help it load things a bit easier, although it was fine to start with (it's only 4 months old. I got my computer with 256MB RAM from Gateway (see my op on gateway if you want to know more about this company). I went to Gateway's website, and there was a link for gateways memory store, I clicked on this and it took me to Gateways memory store powered by crucial. SO in fact Gateway where actually ..."
