I too found a deal too good to be true thru on memory. It was thru 4Magicus for 2GB of Samsung PC3200 for $150. What a deal, I thought...I was wrong.

I placed my order and it arrived very fast. After receiving my order so quickly, I thought this seemed like a great deal. It even came with free heatsinks.

I installed the 2GB of Samsung PC3200 into my computer along with one 512 stick of PC3200 I already had in my computer and fired it up. My computer was only regestering 1.5GB of memory.

I called 4Magicus and talked to Leo Guillen who preceeded to tell me that I needed to pay an extra $80 for Corsair "low density" memory. He told me that the Samsung memory would not work in a Gigabyte motherboard. I thought ok and told him I would be sending it back the next day.

My brain finally kicked in and I thought about removing my 512MB stick of PC3200 to see what would happen to my computer. WOW! My computer was running great and showing 2GB of memory.

I then shut down my computer and removed the memory I received from 4Magicus. I removed the FREE heatsinks and found out what I actually received....PC2700. No wonder it didn't work with PC3200. What a scam so the customer doesn't know.

I have been calling and e-mailing 4Magicus over the past few days with NO responce or reply back from Leo. I guess I'm lucky enough to have received memory that actually works. Please, do NOT buy from this will loose out if you do!! Oh, they also have gone by Micro Magic.

4Magicus Leo Guillen I was very Gratefull with my order with Mr. LEO


"WOW" Awesome company, LEO Guillen was GREAT!!

Great job by this customer. I ordered memory via Pricewatch and they had
a great price, but I didn't notice that the type was incompatible with
my system. They caught the mistake and had me verify it before shipping
to me. It saved me alot of grief. I will be very happy to do business
with them again.Thank you Leo!!!!!!!!!!!
