Was it the same module?

How much newer is the second NV+?

You are right about memory upgrades being a gamble. I tried the 1GB module out of a 2004 HP laptop as it matched the specs. It worked great, but since I only used it as a file server without any add-ons, I noted no significant performance increase, and when I needed the laptop back, I returned the original memory module back to the NV+ and the 1GB back to the laptop. That was over a year ago now.

I found a small increase in Read/Write speed with PC-router-ReadyNAS NV+ by upgrading to Crucial 1Gb memory, as documented on a little wiki that I wrote: <http://readynas.pbworks.com/>

According to the Micron Technology data sheet, it is a 16 chip, 2.5V DDR SDRAM, DDR FBGA, 128 x 64, 200-pin SODIM, DDR333 FBGA, 167Mhz clock, 333MT/s Data band rate, PC2700, 2.5-3-3

The nice part, it the part number says it has 16 memory components...I am trying to find another one.

And I found one online, installed it and it booted nicely...running tests now.
