5.0 out of 5 stars Working perfectly in early 2011 MBP, March 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Corsair 16GB Dual Channel DDR3 SODIMM Memory Kit (CMSO16GX3M2A1333C9) (Personal Computers)
Installation was a cinch into my early 2011 MBP and all 16GB was detected correctly and working. After reading so many bad reviews of other vendor 2x8Gb packages I ran several memory tests to make sure mine were working fine (test run on each SoDIMM individually and as a pair). No errors reported in Tech Tool Pro, rember, and single user mode memtest. Each test ran three times on each configuration without error.

I'd say that they are working pretty well. ;)

Next up is a Win 7 laptop but I expect that it will also work out perfectly.

That's cool you mentioned Memtest.

TechTool Pro and Apple's integrated diagnostics, I discovered late in the day, are comparatively useless for fully testing RAM. That's when I checked out the Mac version of Memtest and, 6 hours later, *kerblammo*. That was about 80% through the third pass. (I'd run between 3 and 5 to feel comfy with the new RAM.)

The version of the Corsair RAM I bought was Mac-branded, but if one can save a few dollars then it's worth trying.

I too do a lot of VM work and extensive use of Photoshop (multi-layer, 300DPI+, 8x11 or larger images) and I too can eat up 8GB fast enough.

I might try this set out...

Try these from Patriot made specifically for Macs. I had failures with Komputerbay and Crucial, but these ended up working very well. I'm sending this to fellow Mac users to save you time and heartache.
