I've been using it for years and they have the best shipping too, always protecting the memory from bends and static.

The post reads a bit like spam;

Crucial is good for someone who has no idea what to get, but their prices are higher than equivalent memory from Newegg et al, and in some cases the information they provide is wrong (incomplete).

For example, want to upgrade the memory in an old Dell or Gateway sysem with a 440BX board in it? According to Crucial, you can't fit more than 128MB per slot. According to reality, 256MB per slot. IOW, take their suggestions with a grain of salt, they don't base their recommendations on the technical abilities of the board chipset which is the correct procedure, or on bios limitations which matters too, only by a very incomplete initial manufacturing spec for a board (which is the most limiting way possible). If this issue was aabout new boards I could grant a little margin for error, but perpetuating the same mistakes for years on some of the most common systems sold and in use over the past 7 years? I know several people (non-enthusiasts) who still run a BX board for something or other.

You seems to do a lot of internet searching (mem. ,rogue sites etc...). Very goof of you..Too bad Crucial ram are not so common down here. One of the best that we can have is Kingston's HyperX :evil:

Come on man, don't forget there's always enthusiast but with less money than you and some others have, but that doesn't mean they can't game/OC or whatever you guys do, except to a lower level considering their lack of technical skill level/ amount of money/ hardware availability

aBg, in that case they should stay away from the Crucial web site, because the memory there is more expensive than from other vendors. :wink:

Their good points are that they have good customer service, and that if you buy a module that they recommend for your system, they will guarantee it to work in that system. Crucial memory also has a good quality rep. Thus, if you're willing to pay a premium price to "let the company deal with the memory issue/problem", Crucial IS a good choice.

Online trade are not widely accepted, yet here in my place....I just surf these oversea websites for research 8) ...BTW, compared to US or EU, I think price here is comparable to Canada :( (I remembered several Canadian posted about the price they have to pay for PC related stuffs, so when I convert them ro RM, well, they're almost the same)

I gotta wonder who signs your weekly paychecks.

Seriously, this post reads as if you are an employee of the company.


Just remember, trolling for business is not very ethical.

When you say it's the "best memory find site" and has the "best shipping", without giving any reasons behind your opinions, it's hard not to suspect either newbie over-enthusiasm or perhaps a financial motive.
It's certainly a good site, but not obviously the best IMHO.
