Yes, I have four of these exact ones in my G74, giving me 32GB of RAM. Flawless.

16X4 shouldn't it be 64gig?

Those aren't 16 GB modules...read the specs carefully: they are 2x8GB modules. I don't think 16GB single modules are on the broad market yet for notebooks.

Your multiplication is flawless - but @fostert is correct... It is a 16 GB memory kit consisting of two 8 GB sticks

FROM the advertisement:

Product Features
•Memory Size: 16 GB

I already have 16gigs of RAM, but since I have my tax return money, I may have to sneak it out of the bank and try out having 32gigs haha
