    Default Thanks for the memory...

    It's been a while since I've had to order memory, and my days of buying from Action/Datech/C2000/CMS are from a few eons ago.

    I'm looking to purchase 2x16GB SO-DIMM that are:
    PC4-2400 (19200)
    Unbuffered
    Nonparity
    260-pin
    2400MHz DDR4 SDRAM

    Since some people on here work in areas of IT that I am no longer involved in, can you recommend suppliers/brands. Yes, googling brings up results, but I thought I would ask "professionals" first of all.

    Back in the day used to nick it from work.

    Proper contracting.

    Might start a ‘what have you nicked from work over the years’ thread.

    Getting that 24” widescreen CRT Sun monitor out was no easy task...

    I am proper contracting. I work for my limited company so there's no point in nicking it from them!
    As for nicking it from ClientCo, that would require me to go on-site.

    Scan.co.uk / overclockers.co.uk

    Both are offering good prices and service and are dedicated for PC components, I have used them on many occasions.

    Amazon.co.uk

    The best customer service and often the best price but finding the correct component is a nightmare unless you are looking for something specific and search for it.

    Brands, don't really matter if you are not overclocking (which I doubt since you are looking for SODIMMs), look for lifetime warranty, Kingston, Corsair, Pattriot, GeIL are all respectable.

    I use Crucial too. I use their memory compatibility widget on their website and order it from there. Always works and arrives the next day. I also have the same experience with Kingston. But just use Crucial from habit, I guess.

    Simples, you wear a white coat, wear a Motorhead tee shirt, have a couple of biros and a screwdriver in the coat chest pocket. Then you carry said monitor to your van to take it for repair.

    Or in my case wheel it out using a cargo trolly borrowed from the security office. Those things are heavy, wouldn't want Health and Safety getting involved!

    I may wait for the new company purchase to arrive before ordering the extra memory, just to make sure I get the right stuff.
