Hot deal for 16GB Crucial DDR3 PC3-12800 RAM memory – CA$84 shipped to Canada w/ duties & taxes

Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR3 memory kit for US$53.10 - $74 shipped to Canada!

Surfing Amazon.com, found this really impressive (almost possibly a pricing error, unless RAM has dropped 50% in the last 1-2 weeks) deal for 16GB of Crucial Ballistix DDR3 PC3-12800 memory for US53.10 at Amazon.com. I did the effort of specifying a Canadian shipping address and going through the check-out process to see the final price: US$74 shipped to Canada including import fees! Pretty amazing, the best price I’ve seen for a tier 1 memory maker selling DDR3 memory is about $175 for 16GB.

This is an excellent deal if you need to upgrade your memory in a very recent (maximum 1-2 years old) desktop computer. The 16GB comes in 4 x 4GB 240-pin DIMMS, so unless your desktop has more than 4 DIMM slots, this will take up all your memory slots. Nonetheless…. 16GB for under $85 *Canadian* shipped to your door?
