5 out of 5 eggsThis is really good ram

This review is from: CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model CM3X8GSDKIT1066 G

Pros: This ram is for a laptop computer that needed to be rebuilt due to socket over heating. When I first got the ram, I had to RMA it, but the process was very quick and painless. Now it does what it is supposed to do.... and that is to run at 1066 Mhz. It shows both sticks at 8Gb and hardware reserve is less than 89 Mb. It is worth more than the term "value" that Corsair has given it.

Cons: There are no cons here. Eventually strength of materials with devices will fail whether in use or in stock, these things happen.

Other Thoughts: Worth the price I paid.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Ram!

This review is from: CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model CM3X8GSDKIT1066 G

Pros: More ram than I had before. Upgraded from 3Gb to obviously 8Gb. It's made a world of difference. Corsair has a good track record with me anyway. Easy installation, took maybe 5 minutes at most.

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat memory for my macbook

This review is from: CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model CM3X8GSDKIT1066 G

Pros: Was somewhat concerned that the memory I picked for my 2010 macbook pro would fail to work, but so far no issues! With the number of tabs I keep opened up, 4 gigs was stressing out the system. I had 8 tabs open on chrome and 4 terminal sessions open, along with Xcode. My ram usage was about 3.87 gigs. With the same things open with this installed, it went up to 4.9. Apparently there is lots of throttling. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Cons: I wish this was cheaper

4 out of 5 eggsAcceleration on demand

This review is from: CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model CM3X8GSDKIT1066 G

Pros: Easy install, low Cas latency. Good price. Maxed out the memory for the notebook. Njoticed significant reduction in initial boot and internet down load and upload. no waiting for emails.

Cons: Notebook only holds 8 GB of RAM. Did what I could for the capacity.

Other Thoughts: I do not give five eggs, as no product is ever completely perfect

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for Macbook pro mid 2010

This review is from: CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model CM3X8GSDKIT1066 G

Pros: Price wasn't too bad.

Cons: While the specs do match up with the ram I currently have in the Macbook Pro 2.4ghz i5, I was not able to get it to work so I contacted support. Their reply: "The memory kit you have unfortunately is for PC's. While the specs will match up, they were not tested for macs which may or may not work based on the type of IC's used for the modules. You'll want to purchase the memory that we designate as mac memory to ensure full compatibility with your system."

Other Thoughts: Bought this ram after using the Newegg Memory finder tool, it's listed as compatible but according to the manufacturer it isn't.
