Time for another blog me-thinks.
I'll be updating more rapidly nowadays, i'm sorry for such a delay.
Although I said i'd be moving on to another high street retailer I feel compelled to go back to bitch and moan about PC world.
I did a recent search on their website, out of boredom.
I searched for ram, nothing out of the ordinary there just when it came to the eventuality of these products coming up, I was happy to see some very old ram available, DDR-400 (DDR is the predecessor to DDR2, and then again to DDR3 ram so it is quite old). This was also the size I needed it in, so i was contemplating revoking my previous statements on how bad PC world is, this is until I saw the price.
£25. For 512mb ram, i've heard of extortion just not on levels like this. Never before have I seen such a large price on something so outdated. I'd advise everyone to stay well clear of PC world as profit is the only word you'll hear lingering in that store.

More next time.
Out, T.

  2. I think its more to do with the fact that due to less demand, production is now limited, increasing costs to produce, which reduces profits, and hence increases the prices :3

  3. Or it could be because DDR is considered antique now? haha

  13. I do say that is a bit outrageous. Not that I really want to buy outdated RAM in the first place though.

  14. I don't know about less demand, but there are just more alternative places to buy hardware around here. I live in a rather populated area, so it is not uncommon to find good PCs to strip for parts at peoples yard/street/block sales.
