This review is from: G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Memory for Apple Model FA-8500CL7D-8GBSQ
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.READ FULL REVIEW
