I Forgot What I Was Going To Say About Memory
8 May 2015
Summary: Mine are working great so far, and they've solved a HUGE set of problems I was having with Yosemite. In particular, I was having major issues running large, edited .pdf's in Preview; and forget about running anything at the same time as GarageBand or Logic or ProTools.
Summary: Early 2011 MBP 2.3GHz i7, installed this RAM and laptop gave error beeps indicating defective memory. Removed them and reinstalled the factory RAM and the computer booted perfectly. Buyer beware.
Pros: Laptop's been lagging like crazy since installed Yosemite and since all of the browsers have started going all Cheeseburger Elvis on us with their memory consumption. Installed this, booted right up and everything is twice as fast. Worked great.
Summary: Awesome! I was pretty wary about installing this RAM myself, after an almost disaster installing it on my last Mac (there was smoke involved...) Installing this on my 15" Macbook Pro (Early 2011) was MUCH easier and worked like a charm the first time.
Pros: I have a Mid-2011 Macbook Pro which came with 4g installed. Running Windows 8.1 through parallels was causing my laptop to have major slowdowns. Doubling my RAM fixed my issues! Easy install, massive difference in performance!
The struggle WAS real - now it's a distant memory.

Summary: Makes opening PowerPoint, word, Adobe photoshop, and iTunes so fast and effortless you'll have more time to do other things in life. The frustration you're used to experiencing while waiting for your programs to open/close/malfunction/force quit on a daily basis will magically vanish.
