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?

Dear Customer

We are sorry to hear you had such issues. In the future, feel free to RMA directly to G.Skill. Through G.Skill, you will always get a good working product. This is a great memory kit for DDR3 Apple computers. By maximizing the RAM to 8GB, you no longer have to worry about any lag or delays. The operating system will remain nice and smooth even during memory intensive processes or high load. Visit the G.Skill website for complete RMA procedure. For any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let us know.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsWouldn't Work Even Though It Should

Pros: Inexpensive, Name brand

Cons: Didn't work.
I have a Mid-2009 13" MacBook Pro 5,5 and I got this product to upgrade my Mac from 4GB to 8GB of RAM. I triple checked this RAM to make sure it would work with my computer when I ordered it but as soon as I put it in I got three beeps (non-registering RAM) and the computer wouldn't start. I re-seated the RAM several times (even researching different techniques), tested each one individually in each slot, and tested them paired with one of my working original RAM and still no go. RMAed and got a replacement - same problem. My firmware and system are up-to-date and I verified on both the Apple and G.Skill websites that my model matched the specs. Everything was correct, except for some reason, this RAM would not run on my Mac.

Other Thoughts: Newegg chat support was really good about the RMAs both times I had to. It was a relatively stress-free experience.

Dear Customer

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Please send the memory directly to G.Skill for RMA exchange and the replacement should work flawlessly. With the latest EFI, you should have no problem with this memory kit. Visit the G.Skill website for complete RMA procedure. For any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us directly.

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't Work

Pros: GSkill is usually great quality, and affordable.

Cons: My late 2008 Macbook (2 Ghz Core 2 duo) won't boot up. Although originally only compatible for a maximum of 4gb, it has been confirmed that with an updated bios, the late 2008 Macbook can support 8gb. https://discussions.apple.com/message/24234212?tstart=0#24234212?tstart=0

I bought a 8gb kit from Mushkin first because it was cheaper. The computer would boot up but after about 30 seconds I kept getting kernel panics (grey restart screen) found to be a common problem. So I returned it and tried G.Skill which has worked great for all my PC upgrades in the past.

With the GSkill installed, it won't boot up at all. I tried putting them in one at a time (with and without the stock ram) and every time I turned on the machine with any Gskill ram in it, it wouldn't boot up. (Black Screen. Beeps every 2 seconds or so).

So I put the stock ram back in and it boots up fine. Hopefully I can figure this out....

Other Thoughts: Is there a different ram that I should be looking at? What's the problem here? Both sticks can't be defective can they?

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

We can surely help you with this problem. Check that you have the latest EFI for the MacBook, the latest version is necessary to use 4GB modules. For your convenience, here is the direct link to Apple's page: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1237
Once that is complete, try the memory again to see if the problem persists. It is recommended to update to the latest iOS for optimal performance. With all the updates mentioned, the laptop should run smoothly with 8GB of RAM installed. For all further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly.
