Verdict and Conclusion
After installing Adata Supreme DDR2-800 2Gb SODIMM memory module into my Fujitsu MH-330 Netbook, I can honestly say the overall performance has increased ... just like it did last month, when I installed the Crucial PC2-5300 2Gb SODIMM. Again, Windows 7 Starter seem to run a lot smoother and we were able to run more applications in the background (taskbar) without any problems. Closing/opening applications seemed faster with no major lags ... and believe it or not, we were able to run Photoshop CS5 Extended on our little Netbook!
During our tests, we noticed that the Sandra memory scores was pretty impressive ... at 3.182Gb/sec (higher = better). While the speed factor was 5.8, which was one of the lowest on the chart (lower = better). All-in-all, the Adata Supreme DDR2-800 2Gb SODIMM produced great scores in our benchmarks and therefore worthy of our Funky Kit "Recommended Award".
Netbooks are here to stay, and we'll be seeing a lot more powerful models over the next few months, including Intel's new N550 ATOM processor. With such a huge and growing market, sales of SODIMMs and memory upgrades are sure to increase. Luckily for Adata, they've already got a fairly strong foothold in the memory market, and SODIMM memory upgrades is a piece of cake for them.
Many consumers will be aware of compatibility issues when upgrading their notebook/netbook memory. And therefore, many will go with big brand names like Crucial or Kingston for safety. But saying that ... I can tell you that these DDR2-800 2Gb SODIMMs from Adata worked great with my Fujitsu MH-330 Netbook, as well as my colleague's Samsung N210 Netbook. As far as I can see, there shouldn't be any compatibility issues whatsoever.
Current prices of Adata Supreme DDR2-800 2Gb SODIMM is unclear, but we expect it to cost somewhere in the region of USD $40.00 or GBP 25.00. At this price, it's extremely affordable and compares very well with Crucial's SODIMMs ... now, it's down to the matter of choice.
Final words. Price, performance and compatibility ... make these DDR2-800 2Gb SODIMMs from Adata, an excellent choice for anyone wishing to upgrade their Netbook/Notebook memory. I highly recommend you upgrade your Netbook/Notebook memory, and then you'll know what I mean when I say ... "You'll physically see the performance difference."
