Mississippi's attorney general's office says time is running out for consumers to file a claim in the $310 million Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) Settlement.
The settlement, announced in March, involves 12 DRAM manufacturers over claims of price fixing.
The settlement pays individuals and businesses that purchased DRAM or devices containing DRAM in the United States during 1998 to 2002 from someone other than a DRAM manufacturer, such as retailers like Best Buy or Staples.
While the minimum payment for smaller purchases of DRAM or DRAM products is expected to be $10, the actual payment amount depends on the total number of claims filed. Payments could be $25, $50 or more.
DRAM is a high density, low cost per bit, memory component that stores digital information and provides high-speed retrieval of data. DRAM is sold separately or pre-installed in electronic devices such as computers (laptops, desktops, and servers), graphics cards, video game consoles, MP3 players, printers, PDAs, DVD players, and Digital Video Recorders.
The deadline to file claims is August 1, 2014.
Any consumer or business who purchased one or more of the following between 1998 and 2002 is eligible to make a claim:
Computer graphics cards
Video game consoles
Digital video recorders.
If you purchased other technology devices also containing DRAM memory, you also may be eligible to make a claim.
