    Question to aabbccdd and neph,

    DO you really consider mushkin to be the best RAM? What makes it so excellent? Ive never had problems with the Crucial RAM i put in my systems, they all run quick and efficiently. Just a question from a curious consumer. ;)

    For me Mushkin was love at first boot - the modules I've used have been dead reliable and very high quality. Plus the company is one of the best I've ever dealt with. I asked a bunch of questions before I first bought from them and they were real friendly and very prompt. After my order I filled out some online rating thing asking about my experience with them and naturally I gave them a glowing review. A week later I got a package from them that had a kick ass black long sleeved tee with bright yellow Mushkin emblems all over it and a note saying thanks for being a customer and thanks for the good review. My kind of company!

    Personally I'd have no problem ordering from Corsair or Crucial but Mushkin has a very loyal customer in me.

    I've been buying from newegg for years and have never been disappointed.

    I too hate UPS (Unrepentant Package Smashers). Every package in recent memory that they've delivered has been beat up and ripped open. It's FedEx for me or nothing.


    newegg gives you the option of either UPS or FedEx :)
