I have a Dell 1545 laptop with Core2Duo and 4 GB RAM running xubuntu-desktop and Openbox on Lubuntu 13.10. Under what conditions will zRAM be useful to me? I don't do any sort of "intensive" CPU- or RAM-hogging stuff.
[10:43 AM] ~ $ dmesg | grep zram
[ 23.623097] zram: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.
[ 23.633196] zram: Created 2 device(s) ...

If I don't need zRAM, is there any merit in turning it off or uninstalling it (if that is possible)? If it's worth doing, how do I turn it off or remove it?
(I have looked at Using zRAM On Ubuntu 13.04 Linux)
