Worked fine on MacBook Pro Early 2011

Summary: Installed with no issues. There is a good how-to-do web page from Apple - just google "macbook pro memory upgrade". A word of warning - some of the screws holding the back of the laptop on are very, very, very small - so don't do this if you have a cat or a kid who likes to jump into your lap to see whats going on (or even if its just breezy in your work area).
Summary: I work heavily with large graphics and massive files. I have been putting off getting memory for my Macbook Pro Late 2011 model, but finally got fed up with slow memory speeds on a daily basis. I would go away and get coffee from the break room as photoshop or illustrator was opening and get back to find it was still opening, hence this purchase.
Summary: As most people interested in this RAM would already know, you can upgrade the RAM in the non-Retina Macbooks to 16GB, even though Apple only says 8GB. (This is the main flaw with the new Retina model Macbooks for me; I have no idea why they max out at only 8GB, especially since Apple has soldered all the parts in place, meaning no ability to upgrade.) For me, the extra RAM really seems to make a difference for me and the Macbook is working flawlessly.
Summary: For the record I have it installed in a early 2011 Macbook Pro 13". Received RAM Monday and installed, while stress testing and taking all 16GB into use I got a reboot. Once again I was able to reproduce this. Without all ram in use everything seemed fine. Ran Memtest for Mac and it showed I had errors. Put in a request to Amazon for replacement. Got it today (Thursday) and it passes Memtest now. Great job on Amazon behalf to get the replacements to me fast.
