Summary: PERFECT! - I REPLACED two of my old 2GB STICKS with these two 8GB sticks. I now have a TOTAL OF 24 GB.* HOW I DID IT: After researching websites until I was sure my 27" iMac was the right model (iMac11,3 mid 2010). I watched several YouTube videos. Carefully I put my 27" iMac face down on a clean folded sheet on my bed. Unscrewed the small faceplate on the outside lower edge of the iMac. One memory stick required tugging harder than I expected, but worked fine.
Summary: I have a Early 2011 15'' Macbook Pro that has a 2.0 GHz Quad-Core i7 Processor, 500 GB Hard Drive, and 4 GB of RAM. I started to notice that after opening a few programs like Safari, Mail, iTunes, and Xcode, my computer ran out of RAM and starting using the swap memory. As soon as I opened up my Windows 7 virtual machine through VirtualBox, everything became almost un-usable. This caused the Beach Ball to occur a lot and my mac to become very, very slow.
It work perfect. One good thing that I use one 8GB ...

Summary: I am sorry. This Ram is not work for my macbook pro. I have a Macbook Pro 15 Early 2011, and It has 8GB ram already. I want to upgrade my Laptop to 16GB because I began to use a lot Adobe software. Therefore, I bought this Ram. After I install the Ram. It has three Beeping and turn off my mac. I try many time, but it is still. I remove the Ram and put old Ram back in. It work perfect. One good thing that I use one 8GB + 4GB (old Ram that I had) than this work.
Summary: I put these into my "Early 2011" 13" MacBook Pro, replacing the 2x2GB chips that came with the original, and (1) the 2 chips inserted perfectly with upmost ease, and (2) when I turned on the computer, all 16GB were recognized (even though originally this computer was said to accept only 8GB maximum). What is more, the added memory made my computer perform "like new.
Summary: Very unhappy! Like others I was informed that this was compatible with my iMac. I explained that I have two iMacs, and i7 and i5. I was living in Malaysia at the time of the order. I had a colleague coming over to visit. So I placed the order and had them bring it to me. The RAM worked in my i7 but not in my i5. Naturally I couldn't return it from Malaysia. So I am stuck with it.
Summary: I have a mid 2011 i5 Mac Mini and even though it states that it is laptop memory it does indeed work in my Mac Mini. Install was relatively simple via online resources. Bit of a tight squeeze. I wasn't able to seat the top stick correctly on the first try but finally got it in and it has been working great. I went from the stock 2GB up to this upgrade of 16GB and I have no problems.
Summary: This was a really good deal. It was the cheapest I could find at the time and ever since putting them in my MacBook Pro, Late 2011 15", everything works quickly. I am able to use this with Logic Pro X, which I was unable to do effectively before, as my Mac couldn't handle the CPU usage during high amounts of virtual instrument processing. I recommend getting these! The installation is so quick and painless.
Summary: OMG my macbook pro early 2011 is working like macbook 2040 may be ....... i am just loving the performance difference. Though i feel that the ram is lil expensive but its worth it. no need to upgrade to ssd .. ram will solve the purpose to a large extent. i am a hardcore user and multi task a lot... but for normal usage.. say 4-5 apps simaltaneously, even 8 gb is enough.... but 4gb is definitely deficient.
Hopefully Corsair will make this right - this memory is faulty

Summary: I don't bother to review things but thought I'd warn you about my experience. I purchased this memory upgrade for my Macbook Pro early 2011 on June 19, 2014. It worked well for a while and then promptly, of course right?, began misbehaving badly at the beginning of last week. As many of you probably know, when memory is faulty lots of weird things can happen.
