Hmmm.....Are you certain the full 256mb is recognized and being used? According to Programmer, in order to work properly, the SODIMM must have 16 small chips(8 per side). If it only has 4 per side, only 128megs will be used....but it'll work ok. Have you benchmarked it? If it truly is using the full 256 megs, please give us the exact Viking model#.....thanks.
I will AFTER I get them and they work. This seems to be one of those things too good to be true and probably is. I'm not about to endorse anything without verification. I just used pricewatch. The link is featured on the openeing page under Memory-System.
Yes it does recognize the full 256 (Well actually it sees 254, just like the 128 actually sees 126 (at least on my system anyway)). It is just like Programmer said... it has 8 chips on either side of the module. The static bag it came in lists it as PC10032X64SODIMM
$70 (FedEx shipping included) for a 256mb chip that will work in the IO. I bought this for another system (which it did not work in), and then tried it in my rev1 IO and WOOHOO!!!
