I upgraded my MBP last year with some OWC ram, actually is was their NuRam brand, but regardless... I got bad ram. And a lot of other people did too. Thread here... http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1056998&highlight=macbook+pro+8gb+ram So, though I've bought numerous external drives from OWC over the past year or so, the RAM thing left a bad taste in my mouth, and I'm nervous about ordering RAM from them again. I ended up putting Crucial into the MacBook Pro from NewEgg and it ran like a champ. So naturally, I'm leaning Crucial. But I like OWC as a company, and I like to give them my business. Would you say that bad batch of RAM (thread link above will explain what I'm talking about) was just a fluke, and I've nothing at all to worry about ordering RAM again from OWC?
