That was for 4 x 4GB, this is 2 x 8GB, making this the better deal
Call me old fashioned, but don't they equate to the same? Also if one happens to break then it would be cheaper to replace?
Is less channels better?
Usually 4 modules is still only 2 channels. Unless it's a very high end board, but no actually having 4 channels is better than two.

they equate to the same, but if you have a board with four slots, capable of taking up to say 32GB of RAM then you would need to have 8GB sticks to make that possible - if you only have 4 GB sticks you then limit how much the system can expand by further down the line.

Its better to get the highest capacity sticks at the start to allow for expansion later on.
Nice find!
Does anyone know if i can use it on hp n40l microserver ?

2x8 is better than 4x4.

Gives you more space to expand into.

CHris Wahl did it with similar dimms:

Would this work in the recent Dell XPS 8500 deal?
and how does it compare to this Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 UDIMM 240 Pin

If you mix them with Apple's own included memory they only run at 1333mhz for some unknown reason.

Reading through that thread it was the CL difference (Apple RAM is CL11 and the Corsair RAM from the thread was CL10) causing the memory to run at 1333mhz. The CL on this expired deal is CL11 so it should be OK. Having said that most people don't recommend using different brands of RAM anyway.
