The memory had really bad reviews. The case .... you had to pay shipping.... not a good idea because they cost a lot to ship....... something else I didn't like but anyways..... here's something a little better IMO. Don't know if I missed anything.... LOOK for combo deals... FREE shipping...and check the site good for PROMO codes that will save you money.
