    Comments about Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) 8GB Kit (4GBx2) Upgrade.:

    Really good but initially there was none in stock so i sent an email regarding supply, the reply was prompt advising me they are now in stock but the price went up $20 per module overnight. As i needed 6 modules this added up, Crucial's excuse was prices move daily(whatever). so if your stock is advertised at one price with no stock, don't expect to pay that price when the product is in stock. not good for the customer.
