Is it me or is memory becoming expensive again? These are the cheapest DDR2 1066MHz I could find with CAS 5-5-5-15 Timings.

According to gskill.com these F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK modules have different heat spreaders without the clips, looking like this:

Can anyone confirm this if you have purchased these before.

It's not you... laptop memory in particular - as well as memory in general - has gone through the roof.

damn.. Same memory use to be about £35.99 last time i checked!

its probably a lot to do with the poor pound against just about every other currency

DDR2 prices are expected to rise as production gets shifted to DDR3. This unfortunately means they will rise further, so if u need some, don't wait around. I was lucky last week with a misprice for a 4gb kit. (Would've posted but was an amazon marketplace seller).

There are several factors - some ram producers have gone out of business reducing supply, there is a shift to DDR3 production by those who remain and I think there has been a shift by consumers to upgrade the memory in their existing PCs and laptops rather than buy new ones.

Yes but apparently RAM prices, especially DDR2 are going to fall in the weeks leading up to christmas according to Hexus Sharewatch article ]here (it also has a good summing up of why they've gone up so far). So if your in the market for some RAM it might be worth holding off a few weeks...
