You know when the new U.S $20's came out they were forged in a week. I wonder how long it will take for this?

[citation][nom]ptroen[/nom]Sounds like a oligopoly practice to keep the ram prices from falling.[/citation]
How is protecting brand identity an ologopolisitc practice?
Besides, of all the PC component markets, ram is one of the most competitive. PC technology in general(hardware, not software) are very price competitive, even amongst duopolies such as AMD/Intel or AMD/Nvidia.
I can get a GPU today for $100 that would have cost me more than three times that two years ago.

[citation][nom]Toms[/nom]To verify the chip's authenticity, consumers and retailers can simply use a black light pen that will light up the DNA's fluorescent coding. [/citation]

Ohh blacklight ink, that's only been around for years, that's gonna be hard to duplicate. /sarcasm

It's not like you have a blue light in the store (or at online shops) to test it out..
Most RAM I've purchased worked perfectly fine!
I guess the issue lies more with the faster than DDR2 800 Mhz modules, which often are overclocked ones...

Honestly, I don't care as long as it works.

I keep two blacklights... $10 for both of them... makes for cool case lighting.

[citation][nom]tester24[/nom]Is A-Data memory even good?[/citation]
Yeah, they make decent products.

the authentication technology will be embedded on the product label and not the DRAM module and this will guarantee the chip's authenticity?

They can track down single mothers sharing files over the internet, and prove their guilt despite the computer being formatted, and can't track down physical dram counterfeiters? They [government] have protected consumers far enough, stop protecting them anymore if this is the kind of protection they provide.

They HAVE heard of something called fluorescent ink, right? As in the stuff you can buy in a stationery shop for $1.50 a bottle?
