    Well, they are different brands.

    But volume has something to do with it. PC100 RAM costs more than
    PC133 RAM these days, even though PC133 needs faster chips, because the
    former has been obsolete longer and less of it is sold. (And most 100
    MHz systems ought to work fine with PC133 RAM, giving no reason to buy
    the PC100 stuff)

    That's what I thought too, but I was not sure, I thought maybe lexar
    brand made better memory than sandisk.

    thanks
