Rated 5 out of 5 by RichW is it worth it?
I changed my standard 8gb (2x4gb) Hynix memory for these but to be honest I have not noticed any performance increase at all only smoother startup processes.
But at least I know the Corsair brand and reputation is second to none and reliability very high.
As I use and recommend Corsair for laptop and desktop I am sure if you buy this you will be happy with your purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Diablo13 These are just causing BLUE SCREEN problems!
I bought this pair of 1600 speed Vengeance sticks because that is what is already in my Scan built gaming laptop, which is only a couple of months old.
I have no idea why but since I added this pair I have had several Blue Screens?
There is no logical reason for this because it didn't do it before and this memory is the only hardware addition to my laptop. Same Manufacturer, same speed, same model, same latency and same supplier as the initial pair which were built in on receipt, So they should have just increased my RAM from 8GB to 16 GB, which I read was better for SSD's, because it reduced the number of writes to disk, by keeping more stuff in RAM.
These might be great for someone else, as my initial 8 GB pair were. But I can't in all honesty give these a good review when they seem to have caused me many crashes!
