It's like you posted what i've had in my mind. When i read last night the links posted here about the power outage at Toshiba/WD plants, i got the same toughts in my mind that the prices have been declining due to higher production/supply. And that this is very very suspicious event indeed.



Samsung pulled a stunt like that last year didn't they? This is almost becoming standard practice by this industry to reduce production. I've never lived in S. Korea, so I can't say how common power outages are there, but having lived in Japan for over a decade, I have a hard time believing they suffered reliability issues, and that they didn't have some backup power mechanism that kicked in if they really did lose power.

I don't have any "special" knowledge here, so I'm speculating, but these type of events are just sounding very suspicious to me now... and they seem to happen when supplies are high and prices are dropping...

Just saw a huge amount of lots of 4 x M386B4G70DM0-YK04 ($170 or obo) go this morning in about 3 hours.

Talk about a feeding frenzy. :eek:

Isn’t there already a price cartel investigation running against the biggest manufacturers?

32GB non-ecc ddr4 2666 sodimm for $115 each. Just in case you ever want to max out your latest laptop workstations to 128GB that have 4 sodimm slots

Graphic of the price of the above sodimm:

M471A4G43MB1-CTD - Samsung 1x 32GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM PC4-21300V-S Dual Rank x8 Module

jelly tbh, wish Skylake could use 32GB DIMMs.
I think it can:

Any updates on pricing lately?

Seems prices have gone up on ebay since the last time I checked a few months ago.

Prices (for new ram) went up since the corona/vocid-19 outbreak in china, but it seems that the prices stabilize now.

Used DDR3 seems to have gone up, about six months ago I bought two sticks of Samsung 16 gb DDR3 -14900 ECC ram and it was about $50.00 for the pair, now on ebay its about $80.00 for the same two sticks.

Sad to hear about RAM going up. I saw ddr3 as low as 43 cents/gb on ebay just a month ago. :(
