5 out of 5 eggsRe: Macbook Pro - Didn't work out

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: None, this is a reply.

Cons: None, this is a reply.

Other Thoughts: @Tim who said the Mushkin RAM caused his computer to overheat: this probably happened because you computer doesn't support 8GB. You may have OSX 10.6 or later, but the BIOS and/or MOBO of the Macbooks that use the PC2 RAM is limited to 4 or 6GB, where yours sounds like the model limited to 6GB (2 + 4). So in consideration to Mushkin, this case was probably one of user error, not hardware error.

1 out of 5 eggsMacbook Pro - Didn't work out

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: It doesn't look like you can edit your reviews.

I was the guy that put the RAM in my Macbook Pro. The RAM worked better then what I was reading. I didn't have any video flickering.

Cons: I had constant overheading. Within just a few hours my computer would sit pegged at 200+ degrees when it normally hovered around 160.

My machine needed a restart a few times a month. With the new RAM in, I was restarting at least twice a day.

I put my old RAM in (2x2GB) and my computer is back to normal. I have RMA'd this RAM.

Other Thoughts: I didn't mention it in my previous review: I'm running the Macbook Pro 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: does not appear to be fully compatible with Lenovo T61p

Cons: After reading another review I got this kit for my T61p (6549), but it did not work. The machine only recognizes 4GB (2GB+2GB). I am using the latest BIOS.

5 out of 5 eggsMacbook Pro - So far so good!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: I installed this in my Macbook Pro 2.4 Core 2 Duo. I've heard that 8GB can make Mac laptops get a little flakey. My Laptop is doing better than ever.

Ram installed in under a minute. Booted up and computer recognized the ram. I run a lot of Adobe programs and they all are working right.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsJust the ticket

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: Installed in my Lenovo Thinkpad T61 in order to run an emulated IBM mainframe under Linux. Used to have 2GB, then 4GB and now a total of 8GB. Works great, but requires a 64-bit OS. Thinkpad sees the RAM no problem and everything breathes easier. Windows 7 64-bit also works well in my dual-boot configuration.

Cons: None. If you can afford it, and have a 64-bit Operating System, additional RAM is the single most effective performance upgrade you can make.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks in a Dell XPS m1530

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: This works with a Dell XPS m1530 laptop. I ran an old version of memtest86 for about two hours and received no error messages... thought about letting it sit and test longer, but unfortunately, I don't have the time.

Cons: None just yet.

Other Thoughts: I run VMWare so it eats up an average of 6 GB for approximately 4 guest systems running simultaneously. The memory stick serves its purpose, I have not had a chance to test the speed but I'm sure it will run most PC games just fine for my taste.

8 GB is extreme for most scenarios, but if you plan on running virtual machines via VMWare or Hyper-V, then this upgrade path is a no brainer. Having a quad core or higher is highly recommended too, but my core 2 duo works well for my test environments.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfect for Dell XPS M1330

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: Easy to install and works perfectly with my Dell XPS M1330.

Cons: NONE!!!

Other Thoughts: Called Dell to inquire about RAM and the price(s) were outrageous. Newegg has done it again. Works great with Windows 7 x64.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great on Dell M4300

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 8GB (2 x 4GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model 996685

Pros: It is memory it either work or not. 8GB of RAM is huge improvement with Virtual PC VMWare.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The improvement from 4 GB (3.25 in Windows XP 32 Bit) to 8 GB of RAM is huge. I installed Windows XP 64 Bit. Only problem sofar is that iTunes will not sync my iPhone. It require Vista 64 Bit. Hope to switch for Windows 7 64 Bit soon. I tried the Corsair memory first and it would not boot the laptop. I think it is the slow timing on the Corsair that caused it.
