RE: Alternative sources for Cisco memory?

The only specification is true parity with tin leads.  Do not use gold leads
as gold on lead = corrosion.  Can't remember the speed though...

Subject: Alternative sources for Cisco memory?

	I received prices for upgrading RAM memory in both a Cisco 7000
and Cisco 7500. Ouch!

	My question is: the 7000 appears to accept standard 30pin SIMMs
while the 7500 accepts 72pin SIMMs. Since I can purchase lifetime memory
(60ns, true parity) for orders of magnatiude less, why shouldn't I? Has
anyone really tried this? Other than Cisco claiming that future problems
are related to the non-Cisco memory I installed, what problems might I
encounter? Are there less-expensive "Cisco certified" memory dealers?
