5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Product!

Pros: These RAM sticks by Gskill are outstanding. Upgraded my Macbook Pro late 2008 from 3gb to 8gb. There's a huge difference! Now I can run multiple programs and/or tabs without any Swap files used. For those interesting, I'm running Mavericks.

Cons: I was completely unaware of DHL passing my package off to USPS. Causes a slight delay of 1-2 days if there are no issues. Since mine got here without a scratch and since they got here in less than a week with free shipping, I won't complain. (:

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that these sticks do not work on all Macbook Pros. So please do some research before buying. If buying for a Macbook Pro (late 2008) you must be running OS X (10.6.6) or higher to at least run the 8gb and have a boot Rom version: MB51.007D.B03 You can check if you're running this firmware by clicking on the apple logo on the top left corner, click on (About this Mac), select (More Info...), and select (System Report). On the right side check to see if you're on the Hardware Overview section. Glance down to Boot ROM Version and viola. Also please note that RAM will not increase single program performance such as video games. Even after upgrading to 8gb RAM, I still cannot run some games smoothly with my Intel Duo Core 2 processor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade!

Pros: - Nice packaging
- Easy install
- Great Performance
- Lifetime Warranty

Cons: Wish they had a 16 gb dual channel option for this ram spec!

Other Thoughts: I used these to upgrade an aging Core 2 Duo Macbook (mid-2010) from 2 GB of RAM to 8 GB of RAM and they worked great! Just popped them in and system booted and recognized them no problem! Multitasking is a breeze and running OS X 10.10 with no issues! Turns out, my Macbook with the latest EFI update can actually support up to 16 gb of ram! But good luck finding a 1066 16 gb kit for laptops! I haven't come close to using 8 gb as is but it always better to have too much than not enough!

Pros: Worked fine in mid 2010 mac mini, went from 2GB to 8GB. Just make sure to seat the chips fully as there is not much room to work.

Cons: Installation is critical

Other Thoughts: Good Apple memory.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for my Late 2009 13-inch MacBook 6,1

Pros: So far, so good. Works for my Late 2009 13-inch MacBook 6,1. No memory beeps after installation! Purchased this G.Skill RAM after an ill-purchase of Team 8GB TSD38192M1066C7DC-E based on user reviews. Looking forward to upgrading to Mavericks and Yosemite when it is released.

Cons: None thus far.

Other Thoughts: Purchase memory labeled for Apple models otherwise you may have to go through the RMA process as I did.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother great product from G.SKILL

Pros: Put them in. Booted up my Mac Mini mid 2010 and now everything moves a light speed. Light speed to slow?!? Ran torture test, let kids play internet FLASH games in multiple windows, cooling fan was on high but no slow down or graphics choppiness.

Excellent memory, excellent product, excellent company.

Definitely breathed new life into an old Mac.

Cons: Non existant.

Other Thoughts: G.SKILL Rocks!!!

5 out of 5 eggsJust works - 13" Mid-2010 MacBook Pro

Pros: Computer booted and registered all 8GB without issue.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I noticed a significant improvement running multiple browsers with multiple tabs in OS 10.9 Mavericks. With 4GB, my 2.4GHz C2D would choke a bit even with an SSD. The extra RAM definitely helps extend the life of this laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsDo they even screen the RAM before sending it out?

Pros: None

Cons: First order - 2 dead sticks
Second order - 1 out of 2 dead....
Not even trying for a third time.

Other Thoughts: How can quality control be so bad?
