Default Buying Memory, Your wisdom please

Hi i wanna upgrade the memory in my friends laptop.

I know it takes DDR2 PC2-5300.

But what is the difference between
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/119282 at 17.99 (crucial)

this

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/123910 at 16.00 (ebuyer)

this

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/95741 Kingston at 17.00

Should i buy the cheap one? i mean is there actually any difference? or should i buy a complete different type?

cheers

I would choose CRUCIAL every time but thats just personal preference, the Kingston ram looks OK but Ive never used it, I would stay clear of unbranded ram as you could be asking for trouble.

Go with either the Kingston or the crucial. Honestly I would suggest the Kingston. These are just better quality brands. By buying a higher quality brand it normally assures you a great stick of RAM and better life out of it. Do not buy the ebuyer RAM. You are only spending a couple more bucks for quality.

Crucial is the best choice because they are a direct distributor of Micron (a leader in manufacturing high performance memory). Because of that relationship, Crucial RAM modules are of high quality status, compatible, stable, and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
