Hi,

I purchased some laptop memory (PC2100 2 X 512MB) from Ebay. The auction item clearly stated that the memory was Samsung. However, when I received the item, I found out that the memory was actually Infineon memory. Did I get ripped off, or quality-wise are they about the same?

thanks!

p.s. I ran MemTest on the new memory for 2 hours and it reported no errors.

Infineon is the #2 manufacturer of memory, selling more than the former #2 Hynex. Samsung is still the #1 memory maker. Samsung usually has slightly tighter timing on their memory. You still cant go wrong using Infineon memory. Side by side, performance wise, you really cant tell any difference between them. Some overclockers prefer the samsung.

Thanks! That's exactly what I needed to hear. You put my fears at ease! I don't think I'll be doing any overclocking on my laptop anyway, my Celeron processor overheats already like it is!
