1% failure seems impressively low to me.

whats funny is that on etailer sites like newegg, it seems like 80% of the reviews are people complaining about bad parts. then again, 80% of those bad reviews are probably written by people who dont know where to put the RAM. :p

People are more likely to voice there opinion after recieving a faulty product.

1.5% failure rate on dimms is actually alarmingly high. Think about it, that means 3 in 200 dimms will fail within a month. most computers these days are dual channel and use 2 dimms, this means that about 1/3rd of all computers could have a memory failure within 1-2 months of ownership. That's pretty poor PR if you ask me. 0.05% is not a ridiculous request by the manufacturers as most of these errors are detectable using burn-in tests at minimal costs.
