PS - I know alust2013 posted this a long time ago. I'm not dissing him, just commenting on the price drop. :-)

Yes, pc component prices drop in price as demand increases. SSDs are another great example of this. I'd say that at $75 for 2x 8GB Crucial kit is a great buy if you really need extra RAM.

Indeed, Newegg had G.Skill 16gb ram kit for as little as $45 on cyber Monday.

OWC advertises superior Mac compatibility, which is just that - advertising. Crucial, Kingston, and G.Skill are as good, if not better than OWC, and they cost much less on Amazon or Newegg.

From what I remember, last October the price two sticks of 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM (total 16GB) was around $1300. So, the price has come down ~$1200, or about 92%.
