Is this price too good to be true?

I'm shopping for RAM for a 2012 Mac Mini. The Kingston KTA-MB1600 8G unit goes for about $75 at Tiger Direct, and a pair of them is $137 at Canada RAM, but NewEgg.ca has them for $39.99!

Is there anything wrong with this picture? Why so cheap? Or should I stop questioning it and just buy it?

Newegg.com - Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600 Memory for Apple Model KTA-MB1600/8G

UPDATE: Ah, never mind. It seems I was looking at the US site for NewEgg.

Soooo??? That's just across the boarder, or you could try their Canadian store:
Newegg.ca - Kingston 8GB DDR3

But why restrict yourself to Kingston brand RAM which is often excessively over priced IHMO??

Have you checked what CanadaRAM's equivalent generic RAM price is?

If they sell equivalent generic RAM, it's usually as good as any brand name RAM in my experience, but look for any small detail noted comments if any at their site.

Seems like a good price none the less. OWC has had the 16GB 1600 for around $100 of late, so this wouldn't be a huge stretch. The CDN site is much more expensive.
