    I could be mistaken, but I couldn't find any warranty info on their chips? Do they warranty their chips?

    I got 2GB coming for my macbook which should arrive today. I purchased RAM for my 2.3 G5 from ramjet and have been very happy.

    It doesn't appear that datamem offers a lifetime warranty. That is ludacris. Lifetime is standard in the memory industry. Their lack of a lifetime warranty and inflated prices will keep me from buying from them.

    i recommend other world computing (macsales.com) strongly. they are great to deal with, and have good prices (maybe not the basement) with lifetime guarantees. i just think it's worth supporting the solid, small company with great customer service over the big company with crap service (eg. macmall)

    Check your facts before posting

    http://www.datamem.com/warr.asp
    "We warrant our memory modules against any electrical or manufacturing defects for the life of the original owner. EconoRAM Memory modules have a 1 year guarantee."

    Their DMS Certified modules have a lifetime warranty. EconoRAM modules are tested and guaranteed compatible memory, you tade off the lower price for a 1 year warranty.

    You are right. Sorry about that. However, $27 bucks more(compared to the Econo RAM) for their certified memory is a bit steep. Considering I can get a 1GB stick of god memory elsewhere for under $90, with a lifetime warranty.

    Heh. You have to be immortal to buy it though.

    I can see it now - "Credit card number- thank you. Deity registration? You don't? No I'm sorry Mr. Gates, you don't qualify for the God pricing"
