The cheapest one with the best specs, unless you have some kind of brand loyalty, they are all good. T

well, i would say that kingston is the secound best and is life waranty.

i never heard that low qualyty ram can cause damage and YES, you can trust all brands but they might last a shorter time(that's if you keep the same computer for 5 year or more...)

Kingston is a well known brand and you might pay the extra buck and have no worries :)

Micron, a/k/a Crucial, is quite good.  Lifetime warranty.  I use them exclusively.  Installed 250-300 sticks with no failures.

Hope this helps.

I use Kingston and Micron, for various apps., and as above, life warranty, but never had a failure on Value RAM, HyperX, Micron or Crucial...correct specifications and price are more important than a particular brand within reason...don't buy unbranded memory from "Midnight Computer and Auto Parts Co.". The brands you list are all reputable, use a reputable dealer...T
