Finally the price of 4 GB DDR3 memory sticks are moving in the right direction.

Recently Mushkin announced new 12GB kits (3*4) in their Blackline range (price of which is still not known), and now Crucial is joining by offering 4 GB DDR3 sticks, unbuffered, non ECC at approx. half the price of their Kingston equivalent.

I think others will follow soon with probably even lower prices, so that's good news for those who have been waiting for affordable 4GB DDR3 sticks.

 At least, as you say, it's going in the right direction.

I've used Ramjet before, never a problem, good thermal specs.

 The Ramjet kit is ECC. The price is nice though.

Affordable DDR3 4GB sticks which are non-ECC, unbuffered, have been very pricey and hard to find up to now.

I wish the price of SSD's would drop as fast as 4GB unbuffered non-ECC modules over the past month because now Kingston offers their 12 GB kits for one third of the price of a month ago.

I recently decided to get 2 sticks of DDR3 PC8500 Ram for my Macbook Pro (To give it 8 Gig) at a cost of $550 (Canadian), which wasn't too bad since the cost before this was around $1400 (CAD).

What a difference it makes too. Can actually play my logic sessions without constantly having to do the play/rewind/play thing.


Current price is even lower than when I bought it .. I think it's now around $400. This is unbuffered RAM but I gotta say that it works REALLY well and I have no regrets about buying it.
