Wouldn't recommend this at all, 2400 is really slow

Not stated in the deal - deal description suggests it's suitable for any CPU, which is untrue

well it is literally suitable for any ddr4 supported CPU... just because it doesn't offer the most performance, doesn't make it unsuitable

I disagree, this RAM would be extremely slow and would only be suitable for a 3+ year old CPU. Otherwise the speed would be too limiting. Recommending it for any build just because it's compatible in theory is irresponsible. 2400Mhz is just too slow to offer reasonable performance.
What’s the fastest speed you can use in modern laptops? Seen amazon has even 3200hz SODIMM.
I was going to order this for my daughters Asus x407ua as need to increase to 16gb but worried about the speed problems above. Any recommendations?

If she's just using it as a school laptop for basic tasks like web browsing, email and Word, then this would be fine. The x407ua has an 8th gen CPU too so although it would be slower, I don't think the RAM speed would make a noticeable difference in the overall performance of her laptop

Thank you, appreciate you lr time to provide some advice. She has Luminar 4 for photo editing and has sims on too. Oculus that runs Sims has been killing the laptop no matter what I do, worth upgrading? If so, what to?

The laptop has integrated graphics so any increase in RAM is unlikely to make any difference to the way Sims/Oculus runs. It's the lack of a dedicated graphics card that's causing it to struggle, not the amount of RAM. Doubling the RAM would likely make photo editing smoother to a degree, but I think the laptop's CPU and integrated graphics (along with mechanical hard drive) are much more likely to be limiting factors in terms of performance when photo editing.

Personally I don't think spending a quarter of the laptop's value on doubling the RAM is a worthwhile upgrade, especially if she's looking to do more graphically intensive tasks like gaming/photo editing. The RAM increase would noticeably improve the laptop's general performance, but wouldn't have any impact on SIMS and the improvement when photo editing is likely to be small. It would be better for her to save the money towards a new laptop or desktop PC that can better meet her needs
