PQI, Mushkin, Kingston, and Crucial are all good names. I wouldn't waste a lot of time thinking about it because Memory prices are about to go up.

Without a doubt with students going back to school.

Check the prices on all four brands and go with the best price. At this point you should be looking at the brand that will save you money, don't worry about a popularity contest.

Plus I can guarantee you that the longer you wait the more negatives will appear here against these brands such as my complete and utter disdain for Kingston and all they stand for, but if it works well in the mini it is your decision.

I'd go with the best deal you can find at NewEgg. There are a lot more success than failure stories and, if you have issues with the ram, you can always return it. (and, if you have issues with the RAM, it is more than likely bad as opposed to being incompatible)

Yes it's a seasonal thing. I bet prices jump at least $20-$30 dollars over the next 2 months.

OK i went with the PQI based on a $1 price difference, and the PQI had free shipping while the Crucial did not. I know newegg's shipping is super fast so i hope to have this really soon (with newegg's speed it will probably beat my KVM and MiniMate here, even though i ordered those Thursday.
