HONOLULU – Attorney General David M. Louie issued an urgent reminder to Hawaii consumers to file their claim in the $310 million DRAM Settlement in time to meet the August 1, 2014 deadline. The Settlement involves 12 Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) manufacturers over claims of price fixing. Consumers and businesses can file a claim if their purchases were between 1998 and 2002.

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.


Purchasers of large amounts of DRAM or DRAM products could get thousands of dollars depending on the amount of product purchased. The minimum payment for smaller purchases of DRAM or DRAM products is expected to be $10. But the actual payment amount depends on the total number of claims filed and payments could be $25, $50, or more.

“This Settlement affects almost every consumer and business in Hawaii that purchased computers and other electronic devices from 1998 to 2002”, said Hawaii Attorney General Louie. “This is your money, and we encourage everyone to file a claim to get what is owed to them.”

Claims can be filed online at in five minutes or less.
