    I have bought RAM from Crucial UK before with no problems at all, fast turnaround in my experience. When I was looking for RAM (2x1GB) for my Macbook they were pretty pricey though.

    I always buy from crucial.

    Their Customer service is the best I've had...certainly in the computer industry.

    I've 1 lot of faulty Ram in the years I've bought from them...and I've bought LOTS!

    I live in Norway and bought RAM online from Crucial in the US for my ibook. Very happy with the RAM. Now I can get it here though, but it arrived very fast from the US.

    I believe that their MacPro ram is not ready for sale yet, due to heat issues if I remember correctly.

    To the original poster, I have ordered from Crucial in the past, never a problem with the products or the service, and super fast shipping to Canada, 2nd day! Great service all around.

    Crucial is designing RAM that includes heatsinks built to the types of heatsinks used on Apple-included RAM for silent operation. Stop spreading FUD about non-two-pound-heatsink'd RAM "overheating"; if it overheated, they wouldn't sell it. :rolleyes: It's just designed to not break the Apple-provided luxury of slow fan speeds; third party RAM without gigantic heatsinks will work just fine, but your system will say "hey, it's getting hot in here" and crank the fans up a notch to compensate, but no burning silicon should result.
