Shipped Kingston instead of Samsung

Sorry, I'm not a RAM guru; I ordered the parts for my computer online and I bundled the memory (samsung) with the asus mobo. They shipped me the parts and I've come to find that the ram is in fact Kingston as opposed to the promised Samsung. Obviously I want what I paid for but should I really be concerned with respect to the quality of the two brands?

hmmmm samsung vs kingston is VERY broad. Care to elaborate more on what you actually received and didn't receive?
Okay- according to the serial what I currently have is:

Description: 1GB 800MHz DDR2 Non-ECC CL6 DIMM
Detailed Specifications: Standard 128M X 64 Non-ECC 800MHz 240-pin Unbuffered DIMM (DDR2, 1.8V, CL6)
These are the specs for each chip of which I have 2.

What I ordered was Samsung DDR2 800.
Kingston is pretty high-end quality, I wouldn't worry about it honestly as long as it has equal specs to what Samsung promised
neither are really names that come to your head when you think of RAM(some kingston models are good). samsung are usually oem in dells/hps. as long as the speed/timings/voltage are all in check i wouldnt bother exchanging it. your system would be down in the meantime
If they are spec'd the same I wouldn't bother exchanging. They are both about the same quality.
