Claim your slice of the $200MM DRAM settlement

Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM)

If you purchased a computer, printer, video game console, MP3 player, video card, DVD player, or any other electronic device that contained Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) between January 1, 1998, and December 31, 2002, in the US you are entitled to a slice of a roughly $200 million settlement.

This could be worth $10 minimum for people who bought just one or two devices while those who purchased lots of gear could get $1,000 or more.

Payouts from the settlement, which is the result of a class action lawsuit supported by a number of attorneys general against a collection of DRAM manufacturers including Samsung, Toshiba, Hynix, and Hitachi who were accused of price fixing (but, natch, don't admit guilt), will not require proof of purchase though claimants are advised to marshall all documentation they have just in case.

The final payout amounts will be depend on the number of claimants. The $10 figure is based on 210 million claims but should fewer claims be made the payouts will increase pro-rata.
