Corsair is probably the best there is, but $10.70??
Somethings wrong here...
One NZ site lists it at $549.00 not sure how up to date that is though

Something's wrong. You just don't get high quality RAM with a lifetime warranty for $10.70. I smell a rat.

If it was true it would be good, but that's just not right. What shop is this? A familiar one?

Edit: The cheapest price on pricewatch (US) for 512MB ram is $26US. And that's Generic brand.

It is probably a typography error on the website when the details were updated. You will find that web site will have an errors and omissions clause in their policies for such whoopsies.

I presume the actualy price was $106.80 or something? Even that is quite cheap.
Oh well at least you got that sorted.
