The technical specs on these excellent SO-DIMMs are missing vital details here on Amazon. I aim to fix that in this detailed review.
And, this is also a case where before/after "benchmarks" can be very misleading...
My system's overall performance significantly improved, despite the fact that my before and after "benchmark" numbers got slightly worse. [See Update.]
Today's notebooks still use 64-bit wide Dual Channel memory architecture. If you want to maximize memory performance (kludge together a 128-bit memory pathway), always install matched pairs of SO-DIMMs. If you need a total of 8GB, then install 2 x 4GB. Do not buy one 8GB SO-DIMM and populate only one slot.
Samsung calls this "Kit" (a *factory matched pair*) of unbuffered, Dual Channel, 2x4GB, PC3-12800, 204-pin SO-DIMMs: "MV-3T4G3D/US." That's just the retail package number. The true *part number* that really matters is burned into each of these SO-DIMMs: M473B5273DH0-YK0.
These memory modules use 30nm technology and are rated for *both* 1.35VDC and 1.5VDC memory slots. This is very important. These SO-DIMMs will be just as wide as 40nm, 204-pin, PC3 SO-DIMMs, but they can be as much as 25% shorter than their 40nm cousins. Even if these SO-DIMMs have to run at 1.5VDC in your notebook, they'll draw less current (amps) and less total power (watts) than comparable 40nm SO-DIMMs.
Always go with manufacturer's "memory kits" (= factory matched pairs) when upgrading system memory. When you buy a kit and something goes wrong with one SO-DIMM under warranty, you replace both SO-DIMMs in order to maintain a factory matched pair of SO-DIMMs.Read more ›
For those little more tech savvy: By looking at the Activity Monitor (Mac OS), there are no more Page Out's or swapping happening with my normal use. This helps minimize slow downs for the computer.
For this price and quality, I highly recommend it.
Update 2/8/12: I had to reset my PRAM on my macbook pro because iPhoto and iCloud were having some issues. After every computer restart, iCloud would become disabled for iPhoto. I had to manually enable it every time. After a PRAM reset, things are working just fine now.
Update 2/12/13: RAM is still solid! Enjoying it.

I've been using this memory in my late-2012 model Mac Mini for about a year now with no problems. It installed easily and has performed flawlessly for a year.Published on June 29, 2013 by Jason Davis
What can you say about memory modules? Either they work or they don't. Mind work so I'm very happy with my purchase.Published on June 24, 2013 by Stephen
Works great for adding additional RAM to a Mac Book. Fit perfectly, was compatible, and had a lot better price than Apple RAM.Published on June 23, 2013 by Allen B
