Which one is better to get my RAM upgrade for my MBP?
Just pick the one with the better price, both are good quality RAM
I've used both brands and have had no issues with either
OWC is overpriced. Get whatever is cheapest on Newegg of a reputable brand (G.Skill, Crucial, Corsair, Kingston, etc)
This is also my recommendation. I'm happily running 2x4GB of G.Skill 1600.
"Which one is better to get my RAM upgrade for my MBP?"
Great prices, good RAM, fast service.
No financial interest, just a satisfied customer.
Why would you pay more for a no-name company when top brands are cheaper? DMS wants $80 + shipping for 8GB of their house RAM while Newegg sells the 8GB Corsair kit for $39 AR. Newegg is still the best way to go, and their customer service is top notch.
Kingston, Crucial or OWC, which ever is cheapest.
Just bought 8GB of Mushkin from newegg - 50$
Newegg isn't an option for me because they don't ship international and I'm not in the US.
Just buy whatever is cheapest and is within spec.
I just found this post today, so my feedback may not help you now. However I did want to replay to awer25 about our price being high. I don't think you were comparing like products because we would never be that far off in price against newegg and OWC. Our "house" RAM or as we like to call it DMS Certified is always built with major brand components from such companies as Samsung, Micron or Hynix. We are always battling prices with these companies and we are typically always within a few dollars in either direction. What makes buying from us different is service. We answer the phone and we know Macs inside and out. All our memory has a lifetime warranty and we do advanced replacements. We have been doing this for over 26 years. Please visit www.datamemorysystems.com and if you have any questions, or call our 800 number to speak to one of our specialists.

Sorry, but unless I'm missing something...your statement is just not true. I even double-checked to make sure. Your prices are almost 40% more than Newegg.
Using a new MBP for reference, which uses 1600MHz DDR3 RAM:
Your unbranded "house RAM" prices:
16GB (2x8GB): $108
8GB (Corsair): $39
8GB (G.Skill): $40
16GB (G.Skill 2x8GB): $79
Been using Corsair for years and no problem for me
crucial 16gb $85 shipped
