    I'm looking at 32GB ram for the new 27in iMac. Any thoughts about Crucial vs OWC memory? Crucial is $160 and OWC is $175 ($195-$20 rebate, when you send them back the original 8GB).

    Same here. Never had any problems with Crucial.

    I've never tried OWC RAM but have had two cases of 100% successes with Crucial.

    I have probably bought about 300 sticks of ram from owc over the years, one was doa and one failed in a short time, all others good for the life of use in the life of the computer. Each time they sent me a replacement before I sent back the broken one. I love owc!

    Most ram comes with a lifetimeme warranty so you can't really go wrong. More down to price and comparability really I'd say.

    RAM is a commodity. As long as it meets the specs, just buy whatever is cheapest and from a vendor you believe will provide warranty support. From your list there, I would go with the Crucial. No reason to overpay for OWC products.
