Had a little trouble installing at first, computer was getting a RAM error. After swapping the slots, it worked perfectly. This is unusual and it gave me a scare at first, but everything has perfectly fine since.
For reference, my MBP is running with 4.58GB free as I write this review, while running Safari, Steam, Activity Monitor, Mail, and iTunes. I have yet to drop below 2GB of free memory with any combination of apps open, including games, so the 8GB package is definitely adequate.
Remember to test your RAM after install

I have a MacBook Pro 13 that I bought in 2012. It started performing extremely slowly over the past year. I was tempted to buy a new computer but Apple suggested updating the RAM. Purchased these memoery sticks and the process was simple and quick. Also VERY easy to install thanks to the instructions. I would use Crucial again in the future.
Allows the laptop to work more efficiently.
This was a quick and inexpensive way to drastically improve the performance of my mid-2012 Macbook Pro. The spinning Mac-ball has gone from a constant to a rarity. Video streaming is much smoother now. With regards to installation it took more time to remove the base cover than it took to swap out the two RAM chips. Next move will be to swap out the existing hard drive for one of Crucial's Solid State Drives.
I wanted more memory for my macbook pro( I had 4g).I did had some problems with installation but it did not had me worried. I notice right away that things are much faster after installation. Also product was shipped very fast. I am vey happy with porduct so far.
Put this in and was instantly surprised. Everything started and loaded so quick. Easy install worth the effort. Cannot say enough how much faster it was once installed. Made my machine fast what I knew it could be for pennies on the dollar.
Good quality memory, easy to install, worth for spending money.
I am a mobile DJ and I got my MacBook Pro with all standard parts as my parents couldn't afford any more than what it had since I needed a new computer for school but as a mobile DJ, I run some heavy programs that just eat the RAM. My software controller, the Numark NS7, needs 4GB of RAM alone and I need to run iTunes and Google Chrome for music downloads and this upgrade is a HUGE HELP. Kind of wish I got 16GB but 8GB fits the bill pretty well.
Installed in MacBook Pro. Doubled the memory and the machine is performing MUCH better now
None. Everything worked great.
I recently purchased a MacBook Pro with 4 gigs of RAM. I decided to upgrade the memory to 8 gigs for faster app performance at a fraction of the cost compared to Apples memory upgrade price. The installation took less than ten minutes and my computer is much faster as far as start up and app performance.
