Heat. Should go well with my Acer Revo

Very cold. It may be a good price, but any memory from CEX is going to be useless.

Good price if it works however my recent experience of 2GB laptop memory bought from various eBay sellers and 7dayshop is that a lot of it is faulty and needs to be returned - about 6 of 20 have been faulty.

Would you care to explain why is that?
They seem to have 12 month guarantee on all non-consumables.

Check the responses in the thread linked to in mumbojumbo's post, or the guy above with his eBay problems.

Memory has to be handled very carefully, mainly because static discharge can cause irreparable damage. Any second-hand memory is going to be risky, and a shop that's main focus is now games and DVDs isn't going to have the necessary procedures in place to protect the goods.

It's true they have a 12 month guarantee, but for the hassle involved in sorting out a claim/return/refund I'd rather pay a little more and go elsewhere, preferably to a dedicated computer shop who will test the memory before selling it. Also, as you'll see in the other thread, the guarantee can mean you send back the damaged memory and they replace it with an equally sub-standard product.

But if you don't mind the hassle then go for it, it's a great price!

Thought I'd copy & paste some comments from the other thread for those who haven't read it:

"I bought this, the memory I recieved was Kingston, but it didn't work just caused all the laptops I tried it on to BSOD."

"I too ordered this memory and it arrived in a brown paper bag !!!! Obviously the company does'nt understand ESD . Tried it in my laptop and it performed a memory dump during boot up . Tested it in 3 other laptops - all the same . Its now on its way back for a refund . I'm gonna pay the £35 ish and get new / tested from a reliable supplier . Its the old addage - you get what you pay for"

"Just got my replacement memory for the fault stick, arrived in a brown paper bag, and yep it dosent work. Rather than make my PCs BSOD/ Beep, this stick was so bad the laptop actually refused to turn on full stop. What a joke! Will not use CeX for memory again, and I'm not sure I'll bother sending this stick back just for them to send me some crap that dosent work again. It seems people must sell them dodgy RAM and they don't test."

Try returning it if it's faulty, it will take maybe 2 weeks if you're lucky, to get it replaced. If they have no replacements and you paid via PayPal they put it back in your PayPal account but not as a gift so it costs you more money, you will probably need to send it back recorded more cost.
I bought a DVD from them and got the wrong DVD in the box, the above was my experience with them and on top of that any second hand DVD's look like they have been used as coasters.
Also if you buy online the shops will not except it back.

Sounds like a bad idea to me

Just compared prices to a couple of sticks I purchased from play http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/627940/1gb-kingston-hyperx-800mhz-ddr2-com for only £12.99 each.

Compared to CEX's price it only cost me £1 more for brand new decent quality RAM, you don't even know what Brand of RAM these guys will send you, let alone any specific details about it.

Not worth the risk at half the price

Cold. I bought this last December when it was £20. First stick arrived was DOA and made my laptop refuse to start up. Sent it back and got a replacement sent to me in a plain envelope with no anti-static, and that didn't work either. Sent it back to them a few weeks ago with a stern letter saying I wanted a refund and haven't heard anything from them since. Bunch of con-artists, avoid.

Really, thanks for the tip. Funnily enough though it slotted straight into the machine I purchased it for, and surprise surprise it also fire's along stabily, guess I just got lucky.

I was just using it as an example to point out it's possible to buy brand new stuff, for a very small premium over the prices charged by CEX
CEX price £12, price I paid £12.99, a 99p premium for a product I know will do exactly what I want it to. Had I ordered from CEX, even if it was a working unit, chances are it wouldn't have been suitable for what I needed it to do.

But I suppose if you're happy to throw anything into your system, in the blind hope that it will improve things,then this is the deal for you

All RAM is created equal after all ?

Best of luck with your bargin, hope it doesn't give you too much grief

Keep your voice down please. There are several threads both here and elsewhere on the web compaling about CEX memory very often arriving broken. The 2 sticks I've had were both pacakged incorrectly and faulty, hence no matter how cheap this deal is its stone cold from me. If you want some useless RAM just to look at go down to the dump and remove from scrapped PCs, because thats about as good as this junk from CEX is.
