    I was looking at buying a stick of 512MB RAM for my 1.25 GHz G4 17" iMac, to max it out at 1 GB, and ran across Other World Computing. Has anyone ever shopped through them, or heard of them? Their memory seems to be fairly priced, (here's the memory I am looking at), but I want to make sure I don't buy cheap goods. And yes, I know many people will simply recommend Crucial, etc. for RAM. ;)

    Anyway, if anyone has any feedback on these guys, if they're a legitamate establishment, or specifically the memory that I'm looking at, it would be greatly appreciated!

    OWC is definitely legit. A lot of people buy from them, for memory and the other upgrades they sell. They seem like a good vendor to me.

    Yes, they are great. I have gotten memory and a hard drive from them in the past. Great service, too. Once I ordered overnight delivery from them and it came two days late (it was around christmas), so they gave me a $15 credit to their store.
