Works on perfectly on my 15 inch, Early 2011 Macbook Pro.

The tech specs listed by Apple say that this Macbook can only support up to 8GB of RAM, however this product does, and continues to, work as described on my macbook.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who ones the same macbook as me, since I have first-hand experience that it does in fact support 16GB RAM.

* The only thing I would advise when considering whether or not to buy this product is to assess whether or not the slight performance advantage between 8GB and 16Gb is worth the price difference. Hope this helps!

* * I would also advise you to run many tests on the RAM upon installing it to make sure that it is properly performing.

EDIT: (5/25/14) - Still working perfectly. Very satisfied with the purchase.

The RAM worked just as described, was shipped immediately and has not exhibited ANY issues. I have been using it in my work Mac since it arrived (6 weeks ago) and it has performed great! I do development and I am always running one Linux Virtual Machine, and often a WIndows 7 VM along side, and 16GB of RAM makes it seamless!
MacBook Pro Late-2011, Intel Core i7 2.8GHz.

Installed and test in a Mac mini 2011. Installed in seconds and did POST just fine. Also ran memory tests to confirm health. It's always been easy to trust Corsair.

Bought two pairs to max out the slots in a mid-2011 iMac, for 32gb total. I do a lot of Photoshop/Illustrator/After Effects work, so this has been a life saver in my never-ending quest to banish the pinwheel from my workflow. So far, so good. And I did it for a fraction of what Apple charges for their memory.

couldn't believe it, but though apple swears you can't, you can get 16 gb of ram working in an early 2011 macbook pro 13". cool!

I bought my macbook spring 2011. It came with 4GB of RAM. Product shipped fast and arrived on time. Install was very very simple, take the screws out of the bottom of the macbook take the bottom cover off and the original Ram cards pop right out. These slide in and click down and the computer reconized it right away. Plug and play. It's that simple. Product did not come with instructions so if you are not mechanically inclined watch a youtube video on it. I'm giving it 5 stars for ease of install and true plug and play operation. I would definitely recommend.

ALWAYS test new RAM, thoroughly. You do not want kernel panics, sudden freeze-ups, data corruption, etc, to happen.

I have 8GB of Kingston HyperX RAM (2x4, 1600MHz)

Upgrading to this Corsair brand made for Macs, it took 2.7 runs of Memtest86 for Mac to run before it errored out.

By then the MBP was over 48C in temperature (idle).

Putting back the original RAM, idle temps were back at 38C and the system ram 4 passes smoothly, begging for more.

MC725 was said to be compatible, even on the package.

Maybe I got a bad module in the matched set, but I cannot waste the lifespan of my laptop testing everything coming in. Each pass takes a couple of hours... times 3~5 to be sure. One usually gets 16GB to use it, so you want it to be reliable.

Apple is also on record saying the 2011 MBPs support up to 8GB only. I have a feeling they might be telling the truth. 16GB might be seen, but if the system is not stable or runs too hot, there's no point in having it.

Definitely buy if you have a need, but definitely do thorough testing (12~24 hours). Right now I'm more inclined to believe reviews and responses from people who cite diagnostics and sound technically proficient than the scores of 5-star entries that just say "Popped in the ram and all works great and it runs faster too!" (Nobody is going to notice a visible speed difference between 8 and 16GB... between 4 and 8, yes, I've used Activity Monitor and there is a small difference. But not between 8 and 16...)

I rolled the dice on this ram after reading mixed reviews. The end result is that it did not work as advertised, either because it was defective, or because it's poor quality. Either way, the computer would either give errors, or would not boot with this ram. I ended up having to put back in my original memory, and the system booted up just fine. I'm rather disappointed because I was looking forward to the upgrade, however, upon requesting to return the product, I notice the price also dropped $20, so my $100 purchase, was a waste of time and money. Do yourself a favor, and purchase a different brand for your Mac Book Pro.

I got this for my Macbook Pro Early 2011 laptop. This is almost like having a new Mac alltogether. Very stable and high performance. Corsair had lived up to their name again. Highly recommended.
