Crucial Memory PC3200 DDR-RAM Review: Shopping around for a memory upgrade reminds me of shopping round for car insurance quotes - you try everyone you can think of, then usually go back the first one you tried!
This was the case when I wanted to add another 512mb of DDR RAM to my Dell 8300. The cost of some manufacturers and distributers can really shock you, when compared to these guys. There are some out there that are marginally cheaper than Crucial, but as I had heard good things about the company, I decided to give them a punt.
My PC uses some of the faster DDR RAM, but it was little unclear as to which was the correct strip of memory for my computer. A little checking back on the Dell site game me more info, and a call to the helpful staff at Crucial cleared it up. I then ordered online, the two strips that were right for me.
Delivery is free, and comes via the Royal Mail's Special Delivery service. The RAM arrived two days after ordering.
Inside the package, the RAM comes in an electrostatic protective bag, which itself is in a very well padded box. Also in there are instructions on how to fit your upgrade.
Everything worked perfectly first time, as I guess you would expect. But the real crux of using these guys is the process - it's simple, the website tells you all you need to know, the turnaround time of the order is really quick.
I'll be using Crucial again.
