While at first glance, it may be in your best interest to shop around. Know that when you purchase RAM from Komputerbay, you're getting Grade-A brand name computer memory. Cheap computer memory, while possibly being compatible, can cause system crashes, error codes in your computer, and even damage to your motherboard! Other sellers may offer you similar looking products for a few cents or a dollar less, but here's the scoop on why: they sell cheap-grade memory and they don't test the modules before shipping! This ends up costing you time and money. Trust when you buy from Komputerbay, you are getting top of the line product from a top of the line company.
We test every module before it leaves the building, and back all of our purchases up with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!

So would i but that memory is a lot more expensive than £23 so that comment has no bearing on this. This is cheap and cheerful and works just the same as the branded stuff and will perform the same as the branded stuff ive had 8gb in one of my laptops for months without issue and it has a lifetime warranty aswell. In my 3 gaming desktops i corsair LP and i always by Corsair but if you buy a cheap laptop off HUKD's for £200-£250 the last thing you want to do is pay another £40 for some memory, this is ideal for the cheap laptops with 2-4gb of memory, its a nice cheap upgrade.

As ive said i have some and its been fine as for friends with issues that could be that the CPU's don't support that much memory as that's a common issue, check the Crucial site and the ram checker will tell you when you put your make and model in what is the maximum that the laptop will take. Obviously if you stick 8gb in a machine that the manufacturer says will only take 4gb there will be issues or if the slots take a maximum stick size of 2gb and you stick a 4gb dim in there there will be problems. Ive seen this issue many times people getting BSOD after doubling there ram and they cant understand why even after buying expensive sticks. Or the other issue is the people who fitted the item have some how damaged it as memory is prone to fail after a static shock that buggers up the memory and you wouldn't even know you had done it.

I personally think that a item that's had 273 reviews and only a handful of those reviews are bad says it all 4.5 stars out of 5 means that i would trust that item and im personally saying i have some in one of my machines its a i3 laptop and its been fine, no issues at all.

So do i the one off Amazon that's what it suppose to be not the one of eBay that's some **** memory with a label on it, what happens when the one off eBay fails and the seller wont do nothing about it and how would the top brands deal with your warranty when you say that it was bought from eBay. Surely you know the rep eBay has for fake flash drives and earphone and memory. I would rather buy from a reputable company at least if you have trouble with this memory and the seller wont play ball you can go through Amazon to complain. Ive been on eBay and the cheapest Crucial kits are £30 but Dabs and other reputable companies want £39.99 so id be interested for you to show me where i can buy 8gb of Crucial or Kingston for £23 you can buy 4gb kits for that but not 8gb i think your mistaken. No ones going to sell memory that everyone else is selling for £30-40 for £23, you know what the say if it looks to good to be true it usually is.

I just got 8 gig of ram & paid £30 & thought that was cheap. Same speed only Samsung. Hot..!. A lot of people don't realize that a 32 Bit O/S only supports up to 4 Gig of ram

At last someone understands, its not just the OS that supports 4gb and shows just over 3gb on a 32gb OS most cheap laptops you get can only support 4gb of memory internally which is 2gb sticks per channel. I know the Samsung is better but £7 more if you've bought a cheap netbook or laptop that will support 8gb of memory spending £23 for 8gb of memory is about the cheapest upgrade you can make, which most people wouldn't mind spending for the advantages more memory gives you like less paging or really with 8gb no page file needed at all.

are you on drugs or something?

i posted a link in my earlier comment for 2x4gb crucial kit, £25 from mymemory, £25.97 directly from amazon.

Avoid this brand, complete junk. Good luck getting any use out of the warranty!

yes 32bit o/s limits up to 4gb

are you using the term "CPU's" for the main unit ?
motherboard/mainboard limits the slots max stick size of ram the CPU/processor sets out the support for the memory controller eg Intel Core i7-3820 DDR3 or AMD FX-8120 DDR3 but a AMD Phenom II X6 1045T can support DDR2/DDR3

and back to my friends computers (desktops/laptops) l got them to drop the computers of at the shop l work at and tested that ram in their systems and are test bench and they were dead banks pop open some new stock from stores and works just fine mind dealing with them on amazon was bit easier to send them back

there was lot problems with one them he did not get it from amazon and his problems showed up later on after buying the ram and asked me to help him with the rma it was total nightmare to deal with he got it from kompbay.co.uk/ but just looked today and looks like they linked there site payment system with amazon so returns might not be as hard but after past experience l can't recommend them to any one

I've got Komputerbay RAM in my desktop PC (16GB), and in my laptop (8GB). I bought this same RAM (at £24) a few weeks ago, and I've had no problems with it, or the RAM in my desktop PC. I'm not into overclocking, so generic RAM is fine with me. My PC has been running stable for about 3-4 months. My limited experience leads me to believe this is good quality and stable, and at this price is a steal - just remember you'll need a 64-bit OS to take advantage of it.

NOTE: My PC runs for 16 hours a day, and is constantly used, so it's had a lot of burn-in time!

Completely understand where you're coming from - if the RAM fails you can't get in touch with them, never mind return the product!
This is average price really... if it was 1x8GB I'd be happy.

Plus I've had Komputerbay RAM several years without ANY problems, they're perfect - why buy some RAM that costs double when this works just as good?
For those of you that have bought this & will be paranoid about are you getting a better performance from this ram., A simple & easy test to put your mind at rest. Run Windows Experience before & after you instal it. If it's better you have a result & just remember most of it is just there for when needed & wont need to draw from your hard drive & slow things down. Ive only ever peeked..! at 4.6GB, So was there when needed & the 4.6GB was only 1 test.
I would suggest you check the reviews on Amazon for this brand, they do appear to have a higher instance of problems. For a few ££s more, I would suggest Crucial or Kingston, both I have found to be very reliable in the past.
I recently purchased some memory and skipped over the Kompbay memory and went for Kingston, and my decision was based upon others experience of receiving memory that did not work, and the feedback on their RMA procedure.
I am pretty sure I got 4 sets of 8GB Dimms for £100 from Amazon for Kingston memory, so this is not necessarily a great deal.
Anyone with a suggestion on the cheapest place to get a 1x8GB 1600Mhz module?
if it was not for the deer's going on at the mo this be a lot cooler
unknown brand - Keep away

I have the toshiba satalite C660 & put 4GB of ram, This spec 10600. Not this brand. You should really check what is in there first as if slower speed ram is in there it will lower it's speed or wont work at all unless you over clock or under clock one of the modules via the Bios. This is the easiest laptop to get at the ram & check or replace. One screw on the bottom & the plastic cover just pulls off, Dont use force. If you have anti stic gloves use those to handle the ram or rubber gloves or touch a solid metal object to discharge any possible static buil up in your body, Carpet is a bitch for doing that. You probably dont need to do this, Just to be safe & dont touch the chips. The codes & spec should be on the white sticker's
i have 4gb already

ill check what else tonight

10600 & 1066 are the same speed 1333mhz. Just put out there to confuse. The crucial one I have used on another Toshiba, But i am using the Samsung brand, Only because I feel it will last forever & if I ever sell it I can take 4gb of iit. I have never had ram fail on me, But crucial & samsung work fine & what crucial have advised is correct as long as the 4gb you have in there is at the same speed. When ever possible use matching brands. Not just to be sure but to also have piece of mind because you do not want to keep thinking to yourself every time your laptop hickups that it's because you didn't match the ram.
so from what crucial say is the ram is this thread suitable?
