4 out of 5 eggsHad a good run for Lenovo X230

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model 997038

Pros: Fast, cheap, simply works

Cons: Not too much

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from 4gb ram to 16gb. After more than 2 years, I finally get the blue screen of death. I tried moving it to my dell and did the same thing. I'm going to try to have it replaced so we will see.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing Mushkin.
We appreciate your feedback and support!

4 out of 5 eggsMushkin Customer support == delightful

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model 997038

Pros: - price ($64 in Sept 2012 for 16GB)
- works in 2012 MacBook Pro 2.5GHz 13" and all other Macs that require low voltage. I am currently using this in a 2013 iMac i7 3.5GHz -- working with a set of Crucial 16GB low voltage memory to give me a STABLE 32GB (there are many reports of 32GB causing problems)
- customer service was excellent (see below)

Cons: - memory was defective from the start and I eventually had to have the memory replaced through Mushkin so I docked an egg

Other Thoughts: Soon after I installed the memory I had sporadic rebooting of my MacBook which I eventually traced back to memory. This computer saw light use and nothing that processor intensive, so it was a rare occurrence. However, the rebooting eventually got worse and happened during attempted backups of the hard drive, so in Feb 2014 I decided to contact Mushkin and get a replacement. I explained the situation and received a prompt reply from Mushkin requesting my proof of purchase. Once I sent that, they sent return instructions. I shipped the memory via 2-day Priority Mail on a Tuesday afternoon, they received the memory on Thursday and shipped the replacement memory out on Friday via FEDEX ground. I received the replacement memory the following Tuesday morning. Put the new memory through the paces and ran memtest on it and have had no issues. I have since put it in a 2013 iMac and this memory is playing well with a set of Crucial low voltage DIMMs to give me 32GB RAM in that iMac (I moved the iMac's 8GB to the lightly used MacBook.) Overall, I was very pleased with Mushkin's customer service as I found them extremely responsive and direct. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again if the price is right.

2 out of 5 eggsMushkin Customer support == painful

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model 997038

Pros: When the memory works, it works

Cons: Memory failed, as memory does. Trying to RMA and deal with Mushkin RMA support is almost as painful as Western Digital.

Other Thoughts: With this level of pain re: RMA from Mushkin, it's not worth buying Mushkin again in the future.

1 out of 5 eggsdo not buy for 2012 13" macbook pro

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model 997038

Pros: none

Cons: will crash when running videos

Other Thoughts: Very frustrated with this RAM. Kept crashing my 13" mid 2012 MacBook Pro base model (i5), particularly when playing any sort of website video. Now I have to deal with Mushkin as NewEgg will not issue an RMA because I'm just a few days past 30 days... Do yourself a favor and AVOID MUSHKIN. And, next time I WILL BUY ELSEWHERE
