5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade from the Original

Pros: Great value for the price. Frees up the bottleneck on my MAC due to low RAM. Memory frequency is higher than base MAC RAM, so a little bit of a performance boost.

Cons: None so far. I will update my review if I find anything.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY YOUR RAM FROM APPLE!!!!

Installed MacBook Pro Early 2011.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfect in my late 2011 MacBook Pro

Pros: Installed the ram into my late 2011 MacBook Pro and it recognized it right after boot. My laptop seems to be faster than the stock 4 Gb ram that it came with. Applications load up much faster. I have also noticed a increase in boot time.

You can't go wrong with G.Skills!!!

New Eggs customer service is top notch!

Great buy!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent... best upgrade I've made for my Macbook Pro 15", early-2011

Pros: This RAM was extremely easy to install in my Macbook Pro 15", early-2011. 5 minute install job and Mac OS X Lion immediately recognized the 8GB of installed RAM when I booted up. The difference in computer performance has been incredible; not only does the OS rarely page memory now, but from a look at my system info, it appears that this RAM is also slightly faster than Apple's default RAM modules. I don't know how I ever managed to get away with 4GB of RAM - looking back, I am amazed I put up with sub-par performance simply because of a lack of RAM.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would consider getting 16GB of RAM rather than just 8GB. I've noticed that Mac OS X has terrible memory management compared to Windows (especially Windows 8, which I also run on my Macbook Pro). Mac OS X Lion and my startup programs (Dropbox, gfxCardStatus) use 3.5GB of RAM now on bootup, leaving me 4.5GB to use for applications. I sometimes like booting up a Virtual Machine or load 15 tabs in Chrome while using Photoshop, and I now realize that 16GB would probably have been ideal for me. RAM is cheap, so if you have any doubts about how much RAM you may need, I would recommend maybe getting G.Skill's 16GB (8GB+8GB modules) instead of just 8GB.
However, with all that being said, 8GB is still a MASSIVE improvement over 4GB of RAM... to be honest, I don't know how my computer ever ran on 4GB.

5 out of 5 eggsBought the wrong kind

Pros: Very fast even when my 2010 MBP downclocks to 1066Mhz.

Cons: MBP wont turn on with 8GB but will with 6GB because i bought a too fast version.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good!

Pros: Great value. Easy to install. Fast Shipping.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Save yourself the $400-something that Apple wants to charge for the same amount of RAM. I've been running this RAM 24/7 since the end of March 2012 (we're almost halfway through June 2012 at the time of this review) with no problems. Great product and great value.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is my first purchase at newegg.ca. It was delivered on time and it works on my machine (MBP 15 late 2011) as of now so I give it 5/5. With life time, how can you go wrong?

Cons: None so far...
