I bet my friend with over 20 PCs will get lots of money from this.

I got a $10 Itunes credit in a CA suit some years ago. The suit charged that the shiny Ipod enclosure got scratched very easily. (It did, but so what? Am I to sue Kingsford just because my hands get blackened when I handle their charcoal?)

Anyway, let's not be discouraged by the small payouts from such actions. The payout is punishment for the perpetrator. It serves notice that they can be held accountable.

I wonder if that is what stimulated resellers to hike ram prices by as much as 50%?

Eg $299 32gb memory now costs $416.

I decided to cancel my claim since I may not be living in America when I get my cash.

I bought two computers in the affected time range, one in 1998 and another in 2000.
Last week I received two DRAM-settlement payout checks, one for $64 and another for $97.

Rebates aside.... I buy hundreds of dollars worth of RAM every year, and I'd just like to see lower prices at the point of sale. That's where I'd like to see my own rebate.

Several years back, when Gold prices spiked, so did RAM prices, because there is Gold in RAM.
But it's such a minute amount, that I never did see the need for the huge jump in ram pricing.
