Rating: 5/5 Excellent value - turned my MBP in to a new machine! July 12, 2016 I bought the older Mac Book Pro knowing I could upgrade the memory and drive and still end up with a very fast machine (and save some money buying the newer, nonupgradeable version). This turned a very basic laptop into a speed demon. Easy install (though the retention clips are not as flexible as you'd think - do it carefully and check to make sure both chips are in place before screwing the back on. Just go to your "About my Mac" to make sure it's registering all the RAM).

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 Review after 4 years! June 22, 2016 Yes, it's taken me this long to write a review for this memory upgrade. What can I say? They were easy enough to install in my Macbook Pro (15" Unibody 2012), and have never let me down. This is after over 4 years of heavy lifting with apps such as Autodesk Maya, Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects, and even gaming (on Windows/Boot Camp).

To say I'm pleased with these sticks is an understatement! So much so, I'm back again...

Rating: 5/5 iMac 27" Retina 16 GB Memory Addition May 1, 2016 The memory goes in nice and easy, and works. This is the 3rd Mac in my fleet that I have upgraded.With the way that MacSales lay out which memory is needed for your Mac is simply brilliant.

It means I have the utmost confidence in purchasing the product.

Another brilliant feature is getting the Memory from MacSales in the US to my door in Perth Australia took 4 days with DHL !! That is simply stunning.

Good work guys !!

Rating: 4/5 Great technical help did it again! February 12, 2016 I've put in RAM in a lot of computers, but not in this model of laptop before. It was very awkward getting the RAM in, and I didn't get it seated right. I called OWC and they were able to talk me through it. The trick is, this RAM fits tighter than the original RAM that came with the computer; that's the reason I had trouble, and the only reason I didn't give the RAM 5 stars. But now that it's in, it is GREAT. I can't believe how much faster my laptop runs.

I always buy from OWC because I know how great their support is. Do not hesitate to buy from them, they are totally reliable. I've bought various things over the years and never had a problem with their own brand items-the OWC hard drives hold up better than the "name" brands.
