dealram.com led me to a $119 price on *Kingston* 1 GB module at 18004memory.com. Any possibility this could be REJECT Kingston?
Crucial, ChipMerchant and even my original search for PC2700 IGB for 1.5 GHz 15" PB showed prices of 175-199 for such a module.
Anything smell fishy?

The full description at 18004memory.com for the $119 module says:
1GB DDR 333 PC 2700 SO-DIMM Module for
Apple Powerbook G4 *KINGSTON*
THIS IS A 1GB DDR 333 PC2700 CL2.5 200 PIN SO DIMM THAT FOR A POWERBOOK AUMINUM 12, 15 AND 17 INCH WITH A LIFETIME WARRANTY KINGSTON BRAND

Too good to be true?

No. I just bought the same Kingston RAM for a few dollars less at Coast To Coast Memory (which seems to have a phone number of 1.800.4.MEMORY, according to their email invoice).

It's in my 1.5 GHz Al PB right now, and has been running like a champ for a week.

I used c2c a few years ago and was happy with their service then too.

You can always run memtest first thing if you're unsure.
