I just recently bought a set from newegg. So far so good. However if any issues, need to RMA yourself, which most likely will be sending it back to Taiwan

Yes cheaper at amazon. Bought twice and no issue. If DOA, most likely amazon settle for u. But if spoil after that, you'll have to rma it yourself.

Have been using a pair from Amazon. Haven't had the need to go for RMA yet but from what I've seen, shipping the RAMs is very low cost. Should be fine, go ahead if its cheaper by like 20% and more.

Just upgraded my work laptop ram with a 16gb pack of ddr3.

Compared with buying them from lazada, they are cheaper on amazon.
I just hope they don't die on me

Get it on Amazon if its significantly cheaper. I do it quite often, and rams are not that difficult to RMA.

I buy a lot of RAM from Prime Now SG. Very good customer service so I'm not worried about warranty... They'll replace or refund you If you send it back into SG Prime Now.
