UPDATE: Just sent the package back to them via UPS. I had to pay $10.41 to have the DEFECTIVE modules shipped back to them.
I bought this RAM from Dataram. It was clearly labelled as PC3-8500 RAM.
The modules I received did not work in any of my Macs. I was able to get one machine (a 2010 MacBook Pro) to start to boot with it, but it never finished its booting process. The 2009 MBPs, and 2009 & 2010 MBs failed with memory beeps at power-up.
I was able to launch MemTest86 (version 7) on that one 2010 MBP that started to boot. Memtest86 reported the modules as PC3-10600. 10600 RAM simply won't work in Macs that require 8500 sticks. I do not see why the label on the sticks and MemTest86's reports were inconsistent.
Lesson to learn: Generic RAM is inconsistent in quality. Immediately install and test any new memory heavily before accepting it - ANY errors will certainly lead to crashes and kernel panics. Use Memtest86 (yes, it can run on a Mac).
I can stream video again. My day-to-day interactions aren't laggy anymore. I've updated all of my software (much of which wouldn't update anymore on the old OS).
I'm not sure how much of the speedup was from the RAM and how much was from the OS upgrade -- I wanted to do both, and figured I'd upgrade the RAM first because it would make the OS update faster. But Activity Monitor is telling me that I'm currently using 3GB RAM as "Memory Used" and 3.86 as "Cached Files" so I'd say the extra RAM is definitely a contributing factor!
I am not at all a hardware person, and the install process was super easy. Only tool needed was a Phillips head screwdriver to take the back cover off. The RAM was held in by these little spring-loaded side things. I pulled them out, and the old RAM popped right up and let me pull it out. Had to do that once for each of the old modules. (They were on top of each other.) Then I slid the new RAM in, one at a time, pressing down to seat it. The spring-loaded goobers that hold it in place were shaped such that they allowed me to snap it in once it was in position. Once it was in, I popped the back cover back on, screwed it in, flipped the laptop over, turned it on, and it was happily chugging away with 8GB RAM. No muss, no fuss.
BTW the real instructions are at [...] ; they're worded a lot better than mine, and they have pictures. But they will tell you that you can't put more than 2GB RAM in each slot, and they are wrong. 4GB per slot is working great. Maybe it voids the warranty but this laptop was years past its warranty so that doesn't matter at all.
You'll want to verify the model of RAM you need for your specific modle (https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT3011), make sure it's enough (I upgraded from two-1gb to two-2gb and realized it wasn't enough and upgraded to two-4gb. You can find this out by monitoring your usage in your Activity Monitor under Memory. You should have a decent amount 'free' to run at top speeds.
Tools: air duster to blow ports, small screw driver to open port on desktop.
My computer: old as dirt: Apple iMac 27” from late-2009. Stock RAM was 4 gb; my computer allows up to 12 Gb. Runs like a champ.
I didn’t get any ‘death buzzers’ or anything.
Came in anti-static packaging within a plastic clamshell case.
