Do NOT buy if your Mac came with 533 or 667 MHz DDR2 memory.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kingston Apple 4GB Kit (2x2GB Modules) 800MHz DDR2 SODIMM iMac and Macbook Memory (KTA-MB800K2/4GR) (Personal Computers)The back of the KTA-MB800K2/4GR package states that this memory is "Intended for use with Apple systems requiring 800MHz, 667MHz, or 533 MHz DDR2 memory modules. THIS IS INCORRECT!!!
I have an iMac with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor. It has the original memory, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. I wanted to upgrade to 4 GB and purchased the slightly faster Kingston KTA-MB800K2/4GR memory. It DID NOT WORK!!! Kingston Technical Support said that the Mac has problems with faster memory and recommended that I purchase 667 MHz DDR2 memory (Kingston KTA-MB667K2/4G) for my iMac. To find out what processor and memory is in your iMac, click the Apple icon in the top left corner, then click About This Mac. Upgrade the memory in your iMac with memory that is both the same speed (667 MHz) and type (DDR2).
Buy this memory, ONLY if your Mac came with 800 MHz DDR2 memory modules!!! Do NOT buy if your Mac came with 533 or 667 MHz DDR2 memory. Good Luck!!!

Yeah, and I did buy it. And just got off the phone with Kingston tech support and learned my error... *sigh* Anyone want a perfectly good set of Kingston 800Mhz 4Gb RAM?
