Rating: 5/5 New MacBook March 28, 2017 The upgraded RAM definitely helped out my 2012 MacBook Pro. Apps are opening up a lot faster and even put the settings to max on one of my games. I believe a SSD will help it out even more, but that'll be later. And as for shipping, it got here in my deployment faster than I thought it would. Overall, very satisfied.

Rating: 5/5 Easy upgrade March 27, 2017 I put this memory in my 2013 iMac and now it runs faster. More files are stored in RAM cache and less time is spent compressing memory. Well, I'm not sure about that 2nd comment but it sounds good.

If you decided to do this upgrade, be careful with the antenna wires on the motherboard. One of the connectors broke for me and there is no easy way to fix it. So far, this has not been a problem.

Rating: 5/5 Great upgrade. March 19, 2017 I was not sure to buy 16GB RAM for my mid 2012 Macbook Pro 13" since Apple states that the maximum RAM allowed is 8GB, but is works perfectly. I recommend you to upgrade your Macbook Pro to 16GB RAM.

Rating: 5/5 So far, so good March 11, 2017 Of course, the proof will be in how the memory will be doing after a few years of use. I praise the OWC installation video, which let me see before ordering whether the installation was within my abilities.

Rating: 5/5 16GB memory fit well and works well February 27, 2017 I made a stupid error ordering my memory upgrade for my Macbook Pro. What I got was memory for a SERVER! The cards were almost as big of 1/2 of my keyboard! The company accepted the return and then I switched to MacSales and their great interface. I purchased, the items came, THEY WERE CORRECT, and when installed it worked flawlessly. I'm going to check to see if they have battery replacements! I hope so. I'd recommend this company to a friend.

Rating: 5/5 This memory upgrade is great February 17, 2017 MacSales.com came highly recommended by an Apple Products sales representative when I was asking about how to do a memory upgrade on my MACBOOK PRO. She was absolutely correct. The 8.0GB (2x 4GB) PC3-12800 DDR3L 1600MHz SO-DIMM 204 Pin CL11 Memory Upgrade Kit for 2011-15 iMac, 2012 MacBook Pro came well packaged with free shipping and was as easy to replace as working with Lego Blocks. For easy to install instructions, click on the Apple in the upper left corner of your MACBOOK (ABOUT THIS MAC), select memory, and click on "memory" and "memory upgrade instructions" in the lower left corner of the box. Again it's as easy as "Mom's Apple (no pun intended) Pie".

Rating: 5/5 Performing as advertised February 6, 2017 I've had my MBP 2012 for about three years, and after buying the toolkit, finally upgraded from 4GB to 12. Works like a champ so far. I use Flash a lot (YouTube addict) and it would suck up my memory like no one's business. Plus, after removing the bottom case, I saw for the first time just how dirty and dusty it got in there, and it got a good cleaning prior to installation. That was a nice bonus.
