Not added postage which is £3.95

Sin

Please add the postage to the price as that is the custom on this site.

thanks postage added.

This memory any good for a Dell Inspiron 1520 anyone know?

It's a good price for RAM but I'd fork out the extra cash for some good quality RAM like Crucial or Corsair as poor RAM can lead to system instability

yes, it works with the inspiron range, and all other Dell laptops I can think of. Check the memory advisor tool on crucial.com if you don't trust me! :thumbsup:

Buy 2 modules and its £19.97 each delivered, bargain.

Good find, thanks

“VAT is not payable on this item as it is sent to you in a consignment of less than £18 in value.”

Does this mean that if you purchase two to save postage that the order would then be eligible for VAT or duty?

I wouldn,t worry about vat .I bought a £200+ camera from 7day & it arrived from Jersey with no problem.

FYI, I bought this same RAM a couple of weeks ago when it was £23.99 - I considered it a bargain then!

Thanks. I wonder why the mention the £18 limit then!

Order 2 modules and it will arrive in seperate packages but you pay postage as if it was 1 package.

As to a £200 camera, I guess it just depends on how busy the international sorting office is as to if you get done for VAT.

Because in a lot of cases you would get charged. Its a risk some are willing to take. I used to risk it and got lots of orders through without a problem then I had a spate of orders where I got charged and its more than youd pay in tax usually. If you are lucky then its good but if they charge you it really puts you off trying in future. If you keep it under £18 then youre under the limit and you will never get charged. Postage doesnt count towards the £18 so you just base it on the cost of the goods you are ordering.

Thanks. Their FAQ also states:

“If the delivery address for your order is in the United Kingdom, all prices shown are FULLY INCLUSIVE of UK VAT where applicable and all goods are in FREE CIRCULATION within the EU. No further duties or taxes are payable upon receipt of your order - we pay these for you.”

So it seems as if the £18 limit may only apply to other countries. Has anyone had to pay tax on orders from the 7dayshop?

The £18 limit applies to the UK too but, as an earlier poster said, 7dayshop are careful to split orders up into consignments under the limit. I've ordered loads from them and often get bundles of jiffy bags.

Any single item priced over the limit includes VAT.

Regards,
Mark.

Thanks for the clarification. I’ve sorely tempted but do I really need 4GB of RAM on my laptop! Hmm. :thinking:

great price, but im going to wait until a better known brand is available at this price, probbaly Crucial or Kingston

You do realise that will likely never happen! DDR2 is already at staggeringly low prices and with Intel moving to DDR3 support with Centrino 2 which is due around June the outlook for DDR2 pricing is generally that it will rise.

hm, interesting. perhaps i should be looking for a current deal on matched pairs?

I bought this a couple of weeks and was a little sceptical about the quality at first. I've had no problems at all and my laptop is 100% stable with 4GB :-) Remember that a lot of machines with only show 3-3.5GB depending on the motherboard.

Its actually not a Motherboard issue, its software. Basically the motherboards which support ddr2 should support at least 4gb (so long as the slots are there - i.e. 2 of them) The problem lies in the Windows OS... The 32 bit archetecture only supports 3.5gb (may show 3-3.2 in vista), and l/top manufacturers seem to stick with the 32 bit versions still due to support and proven stability, despite the fact that the processors are 64bit. If you upgraded to a 64 bit OS, your maching would show the full 4gb!

Hope this clears thngs up, V GOOD DEAL btw (for 800mhz), I am seriously tempted to get 2... and go up from pc 5300...

Matt :-D

Do any laptop chips actually support PC6400? Even the new Mac Penryns still come with PC5300. As the price is the same, you may as well buy either speed, but your laptop will still clock it down to 667MHz.

Very nice indeed for a 2Gb stick!

Hot!

I'm buying for one of the Vostro laptops (as i'm sure a lot of people here are!) and wanted to check compatibility. I need 667MHz DDR2 PC2-4200/5300, 200pin SODIMM, 1.8v, which seems to be what this is. That looks compatible to me right?!

But is there ANY point in buying the 800mhz if it will be underclocked by the system. Is 667 a more stable way to go? What part of the system clocks it down to 667?
thanks

Looks like a great deal to me!
I have just posted Dell's 2GB equivalent for about £12 more delivered with a lifetime guarantee. Worth checking out as a possible alternative. I really can't decide if i want to get this, or pay £34 delivered with a lifetime guarantee.

Well I think PC6400 (800mhz) is pointless... I am going to go for PC5300 and only one as that is what I have already and will mix the modules to have 1x1 and 1x2gb = 3gb ... With Santa Rosa 800mhz is not possible, there are only a few systems that are not really 'portable laptops' that use desktop processors that can use 800 but these ate few and far between.

Also it is useful to note that with new chipsets, you can wix different modules and in my case, if i am right, the first 2gb will run dual channell and the last 1gb will be single channel so no performance drop and only £21 - Bonus!:-D

Oh, but to note, if I was gonna get 2 of these, I WOULD GET THE 800mhz ones, since they are same price because as they are being down clocked they SHOULD in theory, be able to run at a LOWER LATENCY, and therefore should see a small performance advantage, particularly on amd systems!

Hope this helps:thumbsup:

The BIOS automatically sets the RAM’s speed and its other settings and on some systems you can also manually adjust them but very rarely on a laptop.

AMD already has laptop chipsets that support PC2-6400 and the next Intel chipset due in about June will also support PC2-6400 as well as DDR3.
It’s usually worth buying the faster RAM as someone else stated there is a chance that it will be rated at 800/CL5 & 667/CL4 versus 667/CL5. The potential lower latency isn’t a massive difference but since the price is the same why not give it a go.

Is this memory compatible with a macbook and imac? Had a look at the memory for sale on the apple store and it looks exactly the same size card: store.apple.com/App…78C

Seems a very good deal but don't want to end up with something that is not compatible.

Does anyone know how easy this is to fit to Dell Vostro 1500's, I have searched high and low on google but can not find any guides or anything and not really willing to butcher my new laptop just to find out it wont fit! :-)

The Vostro manual on Dell site is a good place to look.

manual here

Cheers

Cracking deal as I have been thinking about upgrading the laptop memory.
So now bought 4gb worth and quidco as well!

For those with Vostro 1500's the under keyboard memory location is shown in a nice big picture if you take a look on my blog.

MikeT is the guru of the Vostro!
Memory replacement is fairly easy for slot A and almost too easy in slot B. Not to be feared!

Shame quidco is only a piffling 2%!

I have an Inspiron 1501, and the Crucial website says that each memory slot in my laptop can only support 1GB of RAM. Is this actually right? I didn't think they could actually limit how much we put in. Also, it states that the maximum amount of supportable memory for my laptop is 2GB, which doesn't sound right either. Can anyone on here help?

Have looked it up for you. Yes that sounds right, if you note here that the memory they will sell for your the Insp. 1501, the maximum per slot must be 1GB.

accessories.euro.dell.com/sna…ops
Select inspiron 1501 from the right hand side, and you'll see that i mean.

2GB maximum isn't that bad considering it's an inspiron anyway!
