It's googlegear. I was curious about the resellerratings for this place, since I hadn't heard of it before. So I searched zipzoomfly on resellerratings and up came the ratings for googlegear.

Yeah... this is googlegear alright. Try going to www.googlegear.com

What's the regular price on this memory?? I can't find it on Newegg so I don't have anything to compare it with.

what a stupid name for a store. I think Googlegear was getting some heat for having GOOGLE in their name.

These "1 GB" memory listings on sites like Googlegear (ZipZoomFly or whatever they are now), Newegg and others are really annoying. They list 2x512MB modules as 1GB. Why don't they advertise 8x128MB or 16x64MB or, my favorite, 128x8MB sticks as 1GB?

FS: 1GB memory kit...128 sticks of 8MB PC4000000000000000000 memory for only 20 bucks....

can't 512MB sticks of PC3200 ram be had for <$100 a piece? What makes this deal so good?

Edit: I see, it must be the latency settings.

Well if you just want any type of memory..... sure......

Still, this deal is OK, not great, but its a few bucks cheaper then if you were to buy them separate.

The Corsair 3200LL is better.

Thats because newegg and googlegear (now zipzoomfly) are basically the same company. I've never fully understood it, but they always seem to have the same prices (just slight differences or shipping differences usually.) I've ordered from both of them. The boxes that came both had the same return addresses.

Um... no. Just because they have similar pricing doesn't mean they're the same company.

Would someone please help me understand?
Aside from the 'matched set' aspect, is there anything better about this ram than the Buffalo (Winbond CH-5) PC3200 from this thread that does 220+ MHz @ 2-2-2 in this review. This Buffalo is selling for $88 per 512MB stick (ie 2 sticks = 1 GB is $176 with free 2nd day shipping).

are you sure about the same return addresses? Their contact info, domain name info, everything, etc seems to be different enough to suggest they're two separate entities.

BTW, it looks like GoogleGear transferred ownership of their domain to Google. Its still using Googlegear's DNS but that's prolly just temporary until all their customers have been properly routed to the new domain.
