Rating: 5/5 Great! August 16, 2016 Installation into a mid-2012 13inch MacBook Pro was easy because of the helpful and well made OWC video. At the same time, I also replaced the HDD with a 1TB OWC Mercury Electra 6G SSD. I now have a very fast laptop that is the equal of a current generation MacBook. The difference in speed and usability is just unbelievable!

Rating: 5/5 Excellent quality as always July 30, 2016 with OWC, i come to expect nothing less than high quality. this memory proves this is still true. There was even a rebate to sell back my old memory which i was not aware of until i received the new memory. OWC is very honest and it is very easy to do business with them. I always go to OWC FIRST for all my mac needs!!

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).

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 !!
