In the ever-changing world of technology, any component more than five years old is usually in need of an update. At seven years old and counting, that's where DDR3 memory is at: laptops can only do so much with it. Since the introduction of DDR3 memory technology in 2007, processors have doubled in capability, SSDs have revolutionized throughput, and graphics cards have drastically increased frame rates, leaving memory as a limiting factor. With Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs, crush the DDR3 memory bottleneck and unlock a new standard of performance.
More Energy Efficient
Extend battery life by using less power. Operating at just 1.2V compared to 1.5V for standard DDR3 memory, Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs consume 20% less voltage than standard DDR3 technology. Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs also contain other efficiency features, for an overall power reduction of up to 40%.1
Pack more memory into your laptop than ever before. Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs debut in densities up to 8GB, and as DDR4 technology develops, modules are projected to hit 32GB — allowing you to install twice as much memory as you could in a DDR3 system. Since laptops only have 1-2 memory slots, high-density Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs allow you to overcome this limitation and install more memory for faster mobile performance.
Load applications faster and run demanding programs without lag. Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs debut at 2133 MT/s —more than 30% faster than DDR3 modules.1
Effortlessly multitask between apps and empower your system to fire on all cylinders. Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs increase memory bandwidth by over 30%, allowing your system to handle more data at once. Crucial DDR4 SODIMMs are optimized for next-gen platforms, allowing you to maximize bandwidth.
1Product performance and efficiency improvements are noted as comparisons between DDR3 and DDR4 memory technology. As of May 2014, standard DDR3 memory achieved speeds of 1600 MT/s and operated at 1.5V, compared to DDR4-2133, which will operate at 1.2V. When voltage reductions and all other energy-saving DDR4 features are factored in, DDR4 modules are projected to consume up to 40% less power. As DDR4 technology matures, speeds and bandwidths are projected to respectively hit 3200 MT/s and 25.6 GB/s – twice what was possible on DDR3 technology.

The drive is fine and appears to be functioning well. However, the installation was anything but easy! After running the software to clone my drive as per the instructions, I found several of my programmes reporting they were not registered - when they had been registered several years ago. In addition, my networked, back-up drive could no longer find some of the folders. I went to the Crucial chat line and the person I spoke to clearly had no idea what I was talking about, saying I should re-sync my back-up drive but gave me no suggestion regarding the problem of the software registration. I tried to send an email to Crucial via their web site but had no reply. I tried to get on their community forum but couldn't see how to create a new thread and eventually gave up. I had to go to two different local people for help with this, the first being unable to clone my drive, but the second finally succeeding. After a lot of aggravation, I finally had my computer back up and running and the man who fixed it said my original problem had not been with the installation, but just that the programmes had been linked to the drive number, and so lost their registration with the new drive. If the Crucial person on the chat line had told me this, my original cloning would probably have been ok and I would have been saved a huge amount of struggle and worry.
I bought a single 8GB memory stick to add oomph to my laptop. The crucial scanning tool gave me a list of compatible products. Selection was easy, as was navigating the website and making a payment. The stick was delivered on time and was a doddle to fit. I will definitely use Crucial in the future. Thank you!
Doubled up RAM to 16Gb. Now all my music software runs without glitching.
Cockos Reaper DAW, Toontrack and IK multimedia VST plug-ins hammering my system but not any more.
Excellent from the technical team, they helped choose the correct module for my laptop
Ram, if you looking to add some then you know what it does, if you are a high end gamer or photo video editor then add some, you will not be disappointed.
Service and delivery comments:
Prompt delivery, well packed, no problems, and a good service when contacted as my system was not recognised by the automatic system from crucial.
My Lenovo Ideapad 510-151SK laptop came with W10/64 but only 4Gb of memory. This 8Gb RAM module upgraded it to 12Gb. It took only 1 minute to fit. One screw to remove the RAM slot cover then slide and click the new RAM into place following the Crucial help video. Now able to run Lightroom, Photoshop and Chrome at the same time with no long "paging" delays when switching apps.
Did not work. Lots of errors. Blue screen of death. Hard crashes. and eventually it didn'tturn on at all. As soon as I took it out it worked. Returned for refund.
Delivery on time.
Fitted in my Lenovo Laptop in 3 min.
Memory now maxed out at 12GB.
works a treat.
Nothing bad to say.
