OCZ = The Satan.
They claim really expansive warranties, and the company 'goes under' and then reforms every year or two, nullifying those warranties. If they don't have too many complaints, they ignore and stonewall warranty inquiries, and then shed their slimy skin when the load gets too high. There have been multiple BBB complaints and even a few investigations.
They are notorious for Geil-like voltages on their ram specs, and for extreme cherry picking of review samples. The last few iterations have been better on these counts, but I still would trust them about half as far as I could throw their store.
They have claimed to manufacture their own ram chips and PCBs, and graphics cards, when they sold those. They don't own any equipment to do any of that, and their graphics cards were Visiontek OEMs. At one point, they had a picture of their 'leading edge PCB assembly machine'..... Micron litigated because they STOLE the picture right off Micron's SITE!!!
Pay a few bucks more and buy from someone who will still be around in six months to honor your warranty. Odds are good that the next cheap vendor in line uses the EXACT SAME OEM for their ram!!
This answer should be a "sticky" for anyone who gets curious about OCZ RAM. It's not worth the risk with RAM like Corsair, Kingston, Samsung, Mushkin, TwinMOS, Crucial, etc....available for decent prices, and MUCH better reputations.
