Experience with Third-Party memory (Cisco)?

A few years back, we had to do memory upgrades on our ASAs in order to move to 8.3 code. All was done with 3rd party memory kits. There have been no performance issues we've noticed with them. The one issue we had was that one of the memory sticks in the kit was bad. The vendor immediately sent out a replacement for it and all was well after that.

Subject: Experience with Third-Party memory (Cisco)?

With all the talk lately about the growth in routes, I got to thinking about upgrading the memory in a couple of my routers.

Does anyone have experience using third-party "guaranteed compatible"

With Cisco's discount it looks like I can upgrade for $5k vs $700 with third party memory. I'm just wondering if others have used it, and how it's performed, or if it isn't worth the risk.
