    For those of you not residing in the United States, apart from OWC, who do you buy your RAM from?

    Newegg doesn't ship internationally.

    I am just shopping around for options for a 2011 Macbook Pro 15". OWC stocks only the OWC brand at the moment.

    Thanks.

    In the UK, always from Crucial.

    Never any problems, except on one occasion when they wrongly specced the RAM for four dual 2.5 G5 PowerMacs at work. They sent out new RAM immediately by express mail for the next day, before I even returned the previous sticks. Excellent customer service.

    Got my last batch from Amazon.co.uk though as Crucial were out of stock

    In Korea, I plan on buying from OWC :)

    There are a lot of brands/sellers here with chips made by Hynix or Samsung so I'd buy that. But I'm shipping other things from OWC so might as well.

    Thank you all so much. I had a look on their website and have emailed them regarding shipping. Thanks!

    Yep thoroughly recommend crucial. Purchased RAM three times (once for Mac, twice for PC) and it always works and arrives quickly.

    When I ordered mine if you used the system scan they guaranteed compatibility, saves wasting money if you press the wrong button!
