5 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: Easy install, works perfectly, good price

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to upgrade my girlfriends 2009 MacBook w/intel processor. Originally it came with only 2gb of ram. Installed these 2x4gb modules and they were recognized instantly. Nice easy upgrade that helped her 4 year old MacBook feel like new again.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked perfectly in my Macbook Pro

Pros: It worked perfectly, replacing the 2x 2Gb Samsung sticks that came with my Macbook Pro (early 2009). Marked improvement in speed for things like Photoshop and other memory intensive applications going from 4Gb to 8Gb of memory.

I've been using them for close to a year now and had no issues.

Cons: None at this point

2 out of 5 eggsCorrupted my OS in one of my MBPs

Pros: This RAM worked great in two 13" MBPs.

Cons: One set (of three purchased) crashed and corrupted my OS in my main 15" MBP, same vintage, on the compatibility chart. I tried another known good pair from this same purchase batch and got the same result. Very time-consuming reinstall of Lion was necessary. So something is off with compatibility. Still looking for the answer.

Other Thoughts: Disappointed in Newegg's sales support. Easy to return. Not easy to get answers to why this RAM failed and trashed my computer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade for a 2010 MacBook Pro

Pros: Ram upgrades are pretty easy. You want to make sure you buy ram that works perfectly with your computer and makes it work more efficiently.

I was tempted to purchase other ram that had a faster clock rate, but was scared away from other people saying that it wouldn't work correctly with my computer's factory clock of 1066 MHz (15" MacBook Pro). I decided to buy this based on past reviews and overall am very happy.

For reference I have a mid-2010 15" MacBook Pro, but I believe this ram works with any MacBook that uses 1066 MHz DDR3 ram.

Cons: None. Very happy after 2 months of use.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple as it gets....

Pros: Does what memory does....it remembers

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Simple install in a Mid 2010 Mac Mini. Only the first time inside a Mac, been building PC since 8 bit 8086's, and this was simple. Mac Mini recognized, booted and it's been on and running video coding and decoding a lot for the past week and no problems. Would buy again...highest praise I can give.
