I bought a pair of these as an upgrade from the original 4GB (total) in my 2013 Macbook Pro. I work mostly with digital audio and do little 3D editing. When working with audio there is a significant improvement in the workload my computer can handle. But, for editing involving video or images, I have not seen much improvement besides a little more wiggle room for my CPU.
Installation was easy enough and had no trouble at all getting it to register.

After getting the bottom one unstuck after a faulty installation I managed to get it working just fine and programs seem much more snappy and responsive. However I now have a new issue in that it appears my computer will sometimes overheat, freeze my computer, and I have to force a restart.

Excellent! Very easy install, and Mac runs so much better with 8GB vs 4GB memory.
The Ram works great in my Childs Laptop.
The parts not just for MAC, also instantly work for pc. My Dell Latitude E7240 likes it.
Easy order, easy install, great product.
I bought this second memory stick because I didn't realize that I needed two of them. Perhaps Crucial could have given me a hint that two of them would be better.
My Mac was purchased in mid 2012 - and it has never worked faster than it works today! Because of Crucial RAM, my apps and programs open and close like clockwork. No more waiting for the app to jump up and down in the dock before it opens. I wish I had learned about this sooner.
Product arrived on time. Instructions were easy and the laptop is happier with the larger memory. Thank you Crucial
