    about to drop some $ for ram.
    from what i read most support crucial or owc?, mac sales.
    one thread indicated ramjet was the best.

    but the occasional bad ram is out there.

    is there anything more definitive as to which company is more reliable for
    the best quality ram (for the new 21.5-$1495.00 imac)?

    thanks

    My following experience with OWC may help you decide.

    I bought 16 GB memory (4x4 GB) for my Mac Pro. I had to have two RMAs to get working memory without kernel panics. The first two sets could not pass the extended test with the Apple Hardware Test and caused kernel panics.

    I went through Crucial and they did an excellent job. Fast shipping and the RAM works perfectly.
