    They are both what is called Major-on-Third -- major brand memory chips on third party circuit boards. The OWC RAM uses Samsung chips, the Techworks RAM uses Micron chips. Other than that, you will have a hard time determining the relative quality of the construction, etc. so you have to go on the seller's reputation. OWC/MacSales does have a good reputation with Mac owners, with only a few complaints of them assessing restocking charges on returns of RAM that didn't work.

    My favourite in the USA is still Data Memory Systems.

    Thanks

    I've had one experience with OWC/macsales. They were very helpful and quick when it came to shipping my RAM off to the Netherlands. I was pleased to say the least. I didn't take any risks and bought the original Samsung stuff (which is what Apple uses). Works great!

    I usually buy the Samsung ram from them but I did buy 2gb of OWC/MacSales ram for my PowerBook and it works great, I haven’t had any issues with it...

    Is there anyone running a 1GB OWC memory module alongside a 1GB module from Apple in an iMac Core Duo? Are you getting dual-channel with this configuration?
