Pros:

Worked great until I started having sleep and hibernation issues...

Cons:

Shortly after I installed this RAM I noticed that when I closed the lid on my 13 inch MacBook Pro (Mid 2010 model), the computer would go into deep hibernation and not wake up when I reopen the lid. I would have to completely power off the computer and turn it back on. The same issue occurs in Windows 7, so I know it's not a software issue. I tried resetting the SMC, PRAM, and playing with the hibernation modes in Terminal under OSX. I spent hours googling and trying different solutions, nothing worked. As a last resort I put in the old RAM and viola! sleep, hibernate, lid closing, etc all worked as it should. Just to be sure I put the new Corsair memory back in and yet again, sleep/power functions are jacked up. Whatever the issue, it's definitely the RAM.

Other Thoughts:

My best guess is this RAM doesn't play well with this model MacBook Pro. It could just be bad RAM, but I had no page faults, crashes, hang ups, etc in Lion or Windows 7.

Buyer beware.
