More important than the company is the guarantee you get with it, in my opinion. There are only a few companies that actually make memory (and Samsung is one of them.) Most just resell it under their own name. Each manufacturer makes some bad chips and some good ones. Problems come up when it's sold without being tested properly first. Find a vendor with a good return policy; they're more likely to test their RAM first, and you won't get stuck if they don't. (That's one reason why Crucial is mentioned so often, even though they're not always cheap.) I wouldn't buy memory from eBay no matter who made the chips.
