It is hard to find reviews on memory, but has seen references about 1 or 2 manufactures that are hit/miss in regards having issues.

I found Crucial.com with good prices but barely any information in regards to reputation.

Anyone have input to this brand of memory?

They are among the best. Used to be the safe folks who manufactured Micron computers back in the day.

I always check Crucial first.
Only ever had a problem with one stick that I bought from them & they replaced it immediately.
In the beginning there was the command line.

There was a time not so long ago when crucial was considered THE best. These days there is much more competition, but they should still be considered one of the best.

Crucial is a solid performer and good quality. I tend to prefer Patriot memory, but theres nothing wrong with crucial. Ive been experimenting with Muskin lately as well, and they seem to be solid as well.

They're fairly good. Kingston and Crucial are two good manufacturers of RAM.
