damn fine price for 6400 memory. No CL details i could see. Amazon have corsair memory for 20 quid more (2gb) but this is a good deal.

Also 3% quidco.
#2
yep, deffo one of the cheapest 6400 deals, good find and welcome to hotdeals!

Good find .. welcome to HUKD jazzy639 :)

Aeneon?

It's recommended that you never buy cheap memory. Expensive memory is only needed for overclockers etc., but cheap memory is for no one. Only causes trouble.
#5
Would rather stick to Corsair/Crucial/Kingston myself, but unbranded/'aeneon' ram has its place so might be useful to some.

Not true most memory is only made by a few manufacturers like Micron and Samsung. The memory chips on the dimm board. I'v used unbranded memory for years and years with no problem,
Branded memory is a relatively new twist In computer history and just a way to make more profit for the vendors.

Wow.

I spent £35 on one of my sticks of DDR800 Ballistix :'(

Indeedie - it's marketing psychology. If you are releasing a product that is identical to a pre-existing product, you can either under-cut your rival for a diminished profit margin, or you can double the price of yours, which implies to the market that with the other product being so cheap, there must be something wrong with it. Seed the market with claims that cannot be demonstratably disproven ("It's more reliable!") along with claims that are true but only barely so ("It's faster! By 0.04%!"), and the market's yours. It's like electronic bottled water.

So, yeah. I'm having me some.

Don't be surprised if this memory doesn't work in your computer. It is much safer to buy a matched pair than individual cheap memory sticks like this...

Back in February when I did a big upgrade of my computer, I bought some cheap memory from Scan that looked a lot like the memory in the picture. I have just checked and they are still selling it now...
1GB MicronMajor, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800), 240 Pins, Non-ECC Unbuffered, CAS 5
In fact the picture on Microdirect looks identical, just a smaller version.

This memory didnt work in my Gigabyte DS3 mobo. I now use two matched pairs, one is G.Skill, the other is Geil. You dont need to go for the more expensive memory like Corsair to be safe, just as long as its a matched pair and a brand that you have heard of.

i have just had a 2nd look at Scan and I see they sell The AeneonMajor memory too (512MB tho), as well as the MicronMajor. Since they look identical and have similar names I am guessing the memory is identical and would therefore not work for me. You are taking a risk if you buy this. As I live near Scan in Bolton it was easy for me to take it back and get a refund.

If it did not work it was faulty or not in spec I have scan generic memory 2 x 1Gb in a DS3 and it works fine. If its sold as DDR2 6400 that is a spec if its not its not.

i cant find to 2GB one...can anyone find it?

Damn good price I'ld say !

If it was not working it was faulty. DDR2 6400 is a specification and if so will work. In the real world suppliers can have marginal stock that may fail with a user they might send it to someone else who will not return it, or it may work for them. My experiance is proof that unbranded memory can and should perform as specified. I have been installing memory on x86 PC's since 1984 including 64kb x 1 DIP chips, Simms etc, almost all unbranded and the Industry standard is still unbranded.

The price is for 2x1GB + delivery (2x12.99 + 3.99 + 5.24 (VAT) = £35.21)

Thats expensive im going to get 2gig 0f geil the performane stuff ddr800 for £5more i know what id rather have ram is dirt cheap at the moment theres no excuses for anyone sticking cheap nasty memory in there towers

For god sake pay the extra few quid my corsair 667 would blow this out the water and because it has a life time warranty which this doesnt it would get replaced if it went wrong.
#19
Id always recommend getting matching sticks of RAM for motherboards, especially if you buy the cheap stuff. I have read plenty of problems with people using cheap RAM, but have not had a problem myself. Having said that a dabs value 512Mb DDR2100 stick just blew in my WIndows 98 PC but it is 4 years old....

I would recommend people shop around becuase good deals on branded memory where the recommended bios settings are stated (some motherboards can be a little fussy with the wrong settings). Most sticks of RAM (these days) _should_ state on a little sticker the settings required.

And there is nothing that drains useful time more than an unstable system ( IF this happens to you and IF it is caused by cheap memory then you WILL kick yourself).

Good find! Heat and rep added.

Good price, it's a no brainer, wouldn't touch this this with a bargepole.
#22
Not too sure why people are saying they wouldn't touch this, as was mentioned before there are only a handful of companies which make all the RAM anyway.
Also does the person saying you should only buy matched pairs actually realise this matched pair business is only really for the hardcore gamers who are pushing their systems to the limit. Its not going to help you at all for normal windows usage.
Stick on a fancy ramsink and print 3 letters (one of which is an X) and I guarentee these cold voters would lap it up and not even notice the difference.

hi, wonder if anyone could help me. i bought the girlfriend a dell inspirion 1501 for going to uni, amd turion 64 x2, 1gb ram... and vista which i know needs probably 2gb or ram to move but i assumed it would be fine for her to muck about on, write reports, go on bebo etc. but to be honest ive a computer i bought ten years ago that im sure could give this a run for its money. cash was a bit strapped at the time and this was a really good deal but im thinking i should have just spent a few more pennies. anyway, girlfriend refuses to let me send it back leaving her without a laptop even though it seems there is a problem with the bios... dont think drivers for the battery were installed to every time you turn the computer on you have to wait a few seconds for it to say "cant detect the battery" and you to press any key before it starts loading up windows. windows detects the battery though and it charges fine once it is on. it also refuses to shut down... id say half the time it restarts on its own after a few minutes. would drive me mad but she doesnt mind. anyway, my question is do you think it would increase the performance noticeably if i upgrade the ram to 2gb? or should i sneakily send it back when she aint looking? sorry about rambling on.

cheers,
jon

Ideally you should send it back. You paid for a product which is not working how it should. Its worrying it does not detect the battery in the bios - this has nothing to do with drivers.

If you want to keep it then try formatting it and installing XP. This will run a lot better. If you don't have XP then reinstall Vista, it will get rid of all the extra bloatware manufacturers install.

The ram in this thread is for desktops btw.

If its a dell and you did get the media pack for vista, it will auto install the bloatware again. I fail to understand why the big companies have to 'customise' programs like vista to show their names. The case has a badge, we know its a dell, vistas bad enough direct from M$ without making it worse. Your dell sounds pretty sick and im not convinced loading XP will help much but i guarantee once it does come up with XP it will run faster, you will know where to find things in control panel.

I heard a rumour that the major H/W companies are so *&$$ed off with vista, M$ are offering a downgrade to XP for an extra tenner if you, the customer hates XP. You then have 2 licenses, one for later when vista SP27 has been released.

Whatever next Bill.....
