    Crucial.com. Hands down, the easiest to choose (they do it for you), and they're cheap, and I've had no trouble with RAM coming from them.

    I had 2 batches of non-working RAM from Crucial for my Unibody up to now, still waiting on them to send me something non-compatible. :(

    Apple did something funky with the unibody MB ram which is causing lots of 3rd party ram (even trusted companies like OWC and Crucial) to not work. Personally, I had installed a 4gb kit from Crucial and noticed a lot of odd behavior which I narrowed down to the ram. they let me return it for a refund and acknowledged the issue with unibody macbooks and their ram.

    I've only had 1 issue up to date with Crucial RAM, but it's been the same for both batches. Waking up from sleep just doesn't work. Kinda of a show stopper.

    I'll try OWC next and if that doesn't work, i'll just wait for Apple ram upgrades to get cheaper I guess.

    I've had no issues with my Crucial RAM both on my UMB and my Mini. They both have been working just fine.

    Crucial has been good to me, but it sounds like you might want to wait a tad until they get their manufacturing straightened out. Maybe a month should do it?
