Key Points

* Cost. Third Party memory comes at 1/3rd the price. Most people have had
  great success with them. A few DIMM's might have failed in a large
  batch. Price/performance has me inclined to think that 3rd party memory
  will work for all the non-critical stuff that we do.

* Performance. Doesnt seem to be diff.

* Support-> If you have Sun support/warranty on your hardware, you might
  be asked to remove it before they give you support(or when they try to
  figure out what's wrong, when something breaks.)

* Some of the 3rd party vendors include

-> Dataram
-> Kingston
-> Crucial

Mike pointed out that the Netra on Sun's site has crucial memory in it.

Most people agree that with the extra price that the Sun memory costs,
comes almost 100% reliability. Non Sun memory fail very, very
