Question Memory Stick Brand Names???

Hey, I was looking at Bestbuy.com for memory sticks. They have three types of brand names:

PNY 512MB PC2700 DDR DIMM Memory: $159.99

K-Byte 512MB PC2700 DDR DIMM Memory: $89.99 <--On Sale

Viking 512MB PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMM Memory: $114.99


Anyone know any differences/problems with these different brands?

I usually buy K-Byte because it is inexpensive. I have never had a problem with any of their memory. Infact the K-Byte 512MB PC2700 DDR is the same stick that I have in mine right now and has been there for about a year.

Cheaper memory usually means cheaper parts used during manufacturing but like I said, I have never had a problem with the cheaper memory from K-Byte.
