Pros: I'm sure it's good RAM, it's Corsair. I swear by them for a lot of stuff, half of the hardware in my current desktop build is Corsair product.
Cons: Didn't work in my Dell Inspiron N5010.
Other Thoughts: I used Corsair's "Memory Finder" tool on their site. It tells me this kit is compatible with a Dell Inspiron N5010. Found the RAM kit at Newegg and it was around $20 or so cheaper (give or take a few bucks), so I ordered through Newegg instead of Corsair directly.
- BIOS in laptop is most current version available - A15. - BIOS recognized/acknowledged all 8192 GB, though running at 1066 MHz due to limitations of the system, which I had partially anticipated. - BSOD during boot into Windows 10, KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE - Shuts itself down with no warning during boot attempt from a Windows 8 setup DVD. - Shuts itself down with no warning during boot attempt from Parted Magic DVD.
I reinstalled the original 2x2 GB modules (Micron MT8JSF25664HZ-1G4D1), and the laptop booted to Windows 10 and worked fine. Same goes for the Windows 8 setup DVD and Parted Magic DVD, everything worked perfectly.
But Corsair's "Memory Finder" filter on their site claims compatibility. Hmmm...
$37.99 purchase price for product. $5.70 restock fee from Newegg applied. $23.37 refund due after restock fee. $10.40 to ship back to Newegg standard UPS. $12.97 back in my pocket and egg on my face after all is said and done. Shame on me.
EXTREMELY disappointed with this whole experience.
I just ordered some RAM from Crucial directly - from what I understand, they guarantee upgrade compatibility, perhaps I'll have a better experience with them. Sorry Corsair, maybe next time...

Works great in Early 2011 MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 8,1 - 2.3GHz Core i5)
Pros: This is faster RAM than what came with the machine, and what the published specs say is possible. As others have reported, this faster RAM is properly detected and used at its faster speed, and there have not any problems for me.
Other Thoughts: DDR3L at 1.35 volts should also end up being more power efficient and giving me a longer battery life, however I have not tested this.

Pros: Upgraded a 2011 HP Pavilion DV6 from a first gen i3 to an i5, put in a 240gb crucial SSD, removed the dvd and put the 500gb 5400rpm drive using an adapter in its place and upgraded to windows 10. The 4gb of memory was a noticeable bottleneck and I had tried before to upgrade to 8gb but ran into the issue of voltage as I needed 1.5v. After 6 months I found this memory and wow made quite a difference! Now it feels like Windows 10 can utilize the SSD and i5 so much better. Really doesn't feel like I'm using a 5 year old laptop anymore. No memory errors or crashes at all.
Cons: Vengeance decal is a sticker I guess? Can't see it anyway lol.
Other Thoughts: The old RAM was 2x2gb Samsung PC3-8500. The Intel chipset I have supports up to 1333mhz and these chips downclocked just fine and the extra speed was noticeable along with doubling my physical RAM. Laptop is used for streaming music and videos, along with Internet and bookkeeping use.
