    4GB DDR3 10666 for £27.50?

    http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/...65&cat=0&page=

    Out of stock so you can't add it to a basket and it'll probably be changed very soon anyway but I found this quite an amusing price error.

    Yep! At that price I think I could even learn to tolerate the Fata1ty branding.

    Maybe.

    I reckon the decimal point might be in the wrong place.

    Did that post come with a teaspoon of seriousness or sarcasm?

    If seriousness Then:

    It's a pricing mistake and you'll never get it at that price. If you do you're one lucky *****

    If sarcasm Then:

    A mate bought bought 2x2gb ddr2 1066 dominator for £40.15 with the fan add on. Thought he was joking but the error was correct on his receipt. So I decided to buy some the next day hoping but just turned out to be 2x1 ddr2 1066 sometime errors do happen

    I think they missed the 1 off the beginning - should be £127.50 (?), seeing the 2gb version is around £67 and in stock

    Most probably pricing 'mistake'

    Though Im sure they wont mind the extra thousands of orders on the site, using traffic that came through the link

    I wish it wasn't a mistake though..

    Comet did that with a £999 TV... they put a decimal point in when there shouldn't have been any. One guy ordered 10!
