    Incredibly overpriced when you consider the component prices. See how much other hw has dropped in price (hard disks, gfx cards etc).

    send them back and ask for replacements,they send you an invoice at the current price with the total discounted so you get them free (replacements) then you send them back again,claim that you dont trust them anymore and ask for a refund. (Show them the newinvoice with the current value )

    ERM NO NO NO NO....

    Pen drives DO NOT use volatile memory, they are all solid state that keep their data without power.

    The price will come down when demand subsides and supplies increase. At the moment though, the DRAM manufacturers aren't in any particular hurry to ramp up DRAM production again, because they're quite happy making flash memory at the moment.

    The recent run of low priced DRAM was good for us as consumers, but ultimately the RAM chips were selling for cost price or below, and DRAM companies can't stay in business that way.

    Read the Inquirer, that usually has some good commentary on the DRAM situation (often cribbed from iSuppli, whatever that is).
