Pros: A good amount of memory from a good manufacturer at a great price. Easy install. Computer works so much better now compared to when there was just 4GB of memory in the computer
Cons: Trying to get it out of the inside packaging was not easy and I was concerned that I might break the Ram. I do understand that it needs to be packed securely so that it does not break during transit but there needs to be a better way.
Overall Review: I was concerned that this would not work with my Mid 20100 iMac as the part number did not match anything on the Cruclal website. My guess is that they use different numbers for what they sell and for what they supply to other retailers.
Pros: I doubled the RAM in my daughters Macbook Pro MD101LL/A (mid 2012)
Cons: None but see my other comments if you are buying for Macs.
Overall Review: Originally bought for my Macbook Unibody MC516LL/A (mid 2010) but it would not boot with both memory sticks installed
Pros: - Noticeable improvement from 8GB to 16GB of RAM.
- No bottleneck, stuttering, or lag.
- It handles all my open apps comfortably.
Cons: - None
Overall Review: - Increased the lifespan of my early 2011 MBP 13'
- Very happy with my purchase
Pros: Three months in. Easy install, significantly less lag, nothing is crashing...
Cons: None that I could see
Pros: Easy to install and is a necessary upgrade for aging mac laptops. OSX consumes around 5 GB of memory by itself so going from 4GB to 16GB made my 2011 MBP a whole new machine. Literally everything is lightning fast, except opening Microsoft office, which is much faster but still takes about 5 seconds. Playing games is a non-issue now, well at least reasonable games like Shogun 2. Itunes, Photo programs with thousands of HD photos, etc... all open and perform flawlessly. OSX really needs at least 8 GB to run at the level I believe Apple wants it to, as all the new mac models coming out have 8 GB standard, but future proofing is always nice, so go with 16. Running Parallels with Linux being allocated 4 GB of ram is a great dual OS experience now and Windows should run fine as well.
Cons: None. The price is fair, as it gave my laptop a breath of fresh air and now I probably won't have to replace it for a solid 3 years.
Pros: Awesome memory, computer is running Mac OS with VMWare and 3 version of windows (Win 7 32 bit, 64 bit and Win 8 64 bit) without hesitation!! $75 for these vs Apple's insane $315!!!
Easy to install.. make sure that you have alot of lighting and clean space so you dont loose those tiny screws for the under cover.
Cons: Shipment was a little on the slow side.. maybe becuase I was too ancious to get them :)
Pros: Shipping was fast, packaging was good and it was really easy to install after watching a couple YouTube videos.
Cons: Nothing as of now.
Overall Review: I regularly use programs like Adobe Photoshop and Premiere. At least I tried to - before this memory upgrade on my Early 2011 MacBook Pro. I couldn't move layers in Photoshop with my previous MBP memory. The program would crash the moment I tried to move a layer, so unfortunately I learned to work with. After the update, I'm just feeling stupid cause I should have done the upgrade years ago. Don't debate it. It made me like my laptop again.
Pros: - Compatible with my iMac 2011
- Easy to install
Overall Review: You need to read the installation procedure from Apple if you never did that.
