Great Product --- but, less than 20g – Heatsink Thermal Compound (Grease-like) Reviews

Pros:
Works well!
Cons:
The product description says that it contains 20g of product.
But, the total weight of both the container and the heatsink compound is actually less than 10 g. (Yes, I weighed it.)
So, this product has been mislabeled in a major way.
Other:
Given that DX is merely an agent for the manufacturer, it's clearly not DX's fault; but, it is an issue that DX should raise with the manufacturer.
Also, once it arrives, be sure to store it upright in a place where it won't be disturbed.
Don't just toss it in a box.
I initially left mine laying on it's side for a few days before using it, and an 'oily' liquid began to ooze out of the top --- even though the factory seal had not yet been broken.
Bottomline:
Good to have and use whenever you need to improve heat transfer properties.
Should be priced cheaper, given the amount of compound that is provided.
