The Crucial CT2KIT12864BA1067 is a 2 x 1GB Kit, it runs in Dual Channel mode and although a decent kit, is still a little small especially if running Windows 7 which is far more memory hungry than previous releases.  This Kit has the same high compatibility and expandability as the other offerings in this range which makes it very popular.  This Kit can be found in a single stick format under the part number CT12864BA1067 or as a Triple Channel Kit under the part number CT3KIT12864BA1067.

Our Review
We were able to test the CT2KIT25664BA1067 (2 x 2GB) Kit with both an AMD and Intel CPU setup on ASUS motherboards. The packaging they arrive in is nothing fancy but then these are a mainstream product, saying that everything was easily removed and installed into both of the systems. It is a simple plug and play setup, no software installation required and both motherboards recognised the memory in full at boot up. Their performance was as expected, a big increase on the DDR2 predecessor but nothing to write home about on a DDR3 level. All in all, reliable, easy to install and if you don't know much about Computers a very good choice for a simple upgrade.

Craig SI bought 2 pairs of 2GB, from unpacking, installing to system booted to Windows 7, under 3 minutes. Just what I wanted.
Paul TrumanAs above simple to install and hassle free. What more does anyone need.
