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

    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
    •Memory Technology: DDR3 SDRAM
    •Number of Modules: 2 x 8 GB
