Apple RAM vs. "other" RAM...

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I want to buy more ram for my DP 867.

Of course Apple told me their RAM is THE best because it's guaranteed and is thouroghly tested with a team of engineers who design it specifically for Apple.

Is there a difference in RAM if I save $250 and buy from Crucial or somewhere else?

I don't think I want ValueRAM or anything "cheap"...

Is Apple RAM really the smartest way to go?

    Yes don't buy RAM from Apple even if they are tested and especially schedule (what a joke, i would rather say that their specifications are perfectly suited for Mac). There are very good quality warranted RAM on the market. If you are interested by warranty some companies like Dane Elec, give you a ten year warranty.

    Apple even sell HD from Maxtor or others at an incredible high prize, and do not tell me that they are especially designed for Apple nor tested...

    Like madmax I thoroughly recommend Crucial for RAM. I believe they manufacture it themselves and probably know just as much, if not more about memory than Apple (they may even supply Apple). You can buy even cheaper no brand memory, but the prices at Crucial are so reasonable, why risk it?

    Yeah, the Micron RAM Curcial sells is probly better than the generic OEM stuff Apple ships.
