What is your goals? Are you a gamer and going to overclock? Just a normal day to day user who needs reliable decent memory?

If your just a normal day to day user I would say go for whatever is cheaper. Both are well established large companies that make good products.

If your a gamer there much more than just the brand because each brand makes tons of different types of ram for different uses. So I'm just assuming your a day to day user.

I am day to day user. But I have waranty for the kingston memory for 5 years. Two have passed. And the company says we have not such memory but on the site such memory exists but it is with 60$ more expensive. And day say you can have adata but not kingston.

Not sure what you were saying above.

Normally memory does not go bad that often. For the most part if its bad you normally will find out instantly or within a few weeks of installing it.

If they were both the same $$$ I would pick the one with the better warranty. If the price difference was minimal (like $5 or so I might still pick the more expensive one if the warranty was say 1 year vs. 5). But if the warranty was similar or the same I would just buy whatever is more expensive.

I always buy memory from newegg.com. They have tons of customers and people review the memory. If I see memory that has bad reviews I pass, if I see memory with great review I buy.

So I normally go for the cheapest memory that I can find that has good reviews from where I buy it. I would assume all a-data and kingston ram for the most part has decent reviews.

It is the next situation. I bought kingston kit 2X1 GB ddr400 3 years ago with 5 years waranty. And now one gone bad and the service tells me that they can only change it with a data ddr400. But on the site on the same firm i see the same kingston kit, but thay says that the site is not updated. What would you do in such situation.

Then I wouldn't buy new and just have them replace what you have under warranty and save your $$$.

I would let them replace the Kingston kit with anything that is equal or better and 100% compatible with your computer. If only 1 stick is bad and you originally bought them as a pair (or 2 separate, but same model sticks at the same time) I would request they replace both sticks with a matching pair.

Hopefully that helps a little bit.
