Summary: Got bought this memory for Christmas, and it's fantastic, incredibly fast. Running it with an i5 2.2ghz CPU and a Samsung SSD. Probably a bit over kill to have 16GB but better than not enough! A bit pricey, but well worth it. With my previous RAM I was frequently getting warning messages about memory running low, especially when I was using Fireworks, Photoshop and had loads of tabs open in Firefox. This is no longer a problem.
Summary: This "review" is mostly to confirm for anyone wondering: this memory works perfectly in my Late 2012 (6,1) Mac Mini, so if you're looking for 1600 MHz DDR3 SODIMMs for your little box, here it is, and the price is right. This is a max-out memory kit for that computer (2 8GB sticks). Not much more to say, it's memory, it works, and I have no info for you about the nuances of benchmark performance, and NCIX pretty much had the best pricing around, so that makes this one of...
Pros: Works in my Mac Mini, is 16 GB, affordable!
Cons: Costs money, did not make me better-looking.
Summary: With all these extra rams, I can computer so much faster. Facebook is like BOOM. In all seriousness, this RAM, coupled with an SSD, lets my computer not only boot and shut down in under 30 seconds, but also my data-intensive MATLAB processing is notably quicker. Now, if I could only cram a discrete GPU into my laptop, I'd be THE ULTIMATE COMPUTERER. If my laptop had more slots for RAM, I'd buy more of this product.
Summary: I put this memory into my mid-2012 MacBook Pro 13" (2.5Ghz i5) the other day and everything is running perfectly. After I made sure the memory was working fine I also installed a SSD (Samsung 840). With the SSD and 16GB of memory the system boots in about 5 seconds and easily runs Parallels 8 Desktop with Windows 7 and Photoshop CS6 concurrently.
Summary: If you need to expand the RAM on your late 2012 Mac Mini, this will do the job for you. If you haven't purchased your Mac Mini yet, get the minimum RAM possible and buy this kit — you'll save.
Summary: Some buyers have expressed concern after buying this RAM and installing it in their iMacs (27" Ivy Bridge model, late 2012). That iMac is specced for DDR3 1600 RAM, and ships with RAM like that, but after you install this Corsair RAM your iMac will show that it is running aRAM at 1333 MHz, not 1600. So: (a) The reason this is happening is that DRAM is (to simplify things tremendously) described by two parameters.
