    It has higher latencies and the quality isn't as good as DDR2 but it is better. Once it becomes more mainstream (like DDR2) the latencies and price will drop and quality will increase.

    Like Zarcu said, I'd wait a while til it becomes more mainstream. If you're gonna buy more RAM just get ddr2, its cheap and effective.
