Get a piece of the DRAM price fixing case settlement

Posted on Friday, Mar 07 2014 @ 10:32 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
TechPowerUp informs us that you can get a piece of the $310 million DRAM price fixing settlement via DRAM claims. To be eligible, you need to have bought a computer or other consumer electronics with DRAM chips in it between 1998 and 2002. Unfortunately, you can only be included in the Class and/or Attorneys General Actions if your purchase was made in the United States, which includes Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. territories, or from a seller located in the United States.
A typical successful claim should entitle you to a compensation of $10, but in certain cases, the compensation can go as high as $1,000. Documentation (proof of purchase) is not required, but the site advises you to hold on to any documentation that you have, apart from the equipment itself. The litigation covers "indirect purchasers" only, which includes people who purchased pre-built PCs, laptops, mobile phones, game consoles, and graphics cards. People who directly purchased DRAM from DRAM makers (such as aftermarket DRAM modules), aren't eligible.
