    Upping the ram on my soon to be received Toshiba R10 another 1 gig. Will have the standard 256K on one side and the 1 gig chip on the other. Anybody have any problems with the Simpletech memory? Its $40 cheaper than the crucial for a 1 gig chip.

    I'd also look at Kingmax and Corsair. Check NewEgg. If Simple is still that much cheaper, than it might be worth a try, but I'd pay more for a better brand.

    true. while the market is not saturated, go with brands that have good quality. Once a brand gets big enough with competitors, they tend to have lower and lower quality. Like Ford and GM with foriegn cars.

    Thanks. Though I thought I found an even more affordable solution at Best Buy (this week only) they have 1 g of Kingston pc2700 ddr 333 on sale for $94 but its 184 pin and I need 200. I think I'm going for the quality route with the crucial I keep seeing on the forum. Do it right the first time....
