    I don't see a difference - the voltage is the same, the CAS values are the same. The OWC memory has a lifetime warranty, too.

    They are very different companies with different customer bases. Crucial is just the brand Micron use for their own DIMMs (they produce the DRAM chips used by many companies), OWC are a reseller. OWC also appear to use their low memory pricing as a way to drive traffic.

    Well is it still good quality RAM? In the past when I've checked prices, the two don't have that much of a difference in price.

    Anyone here using it?

    I use OWC ram in my 2008 8-core and it's been great, no problems or issues at all.

    Go for it!

    No quality difference that will affect you and no real reason to not buy from OWC.
