    This week CompUSA has 512MB PC3200/DDR Centon RAM for 29.99 a stick. Seems like a good deal, but I fear it's a little too good to be true. Anybody have experience with Centon? Anything I should worry about before buying?

    Forgive me...

    ...for the bump, but does anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks!

    You might want to explain what type of machine you are going to put this RAM into.

    I've used Centon RAM from CompUSA in past computers and haven't had any problems. I'd say go for it.

    Does CompUSA guarantee compatibility with your particular machine (whatever it might be - we don't know)?

    If not, it's your risk. Make sure that you have a no-cost return for refund ability. It's basic generic RAM.

    If you're talking about a PowerBook G4 1,0 - 1.33 Aluminum, or an iMac G5 rev A, then forget it, the chances of generic RAM being compatible in thise machines is slender.

    I used the Cenron RAM in a 12in powerbook and it worked fine. no problems at all. I've never had a problem returning something to CompUSA if it didn't work.

    I was also wondering if this ram was any good. I see they have a deal on ram that would fit my macbook but wasnt sure if I should take the chance on this or not.
