Just got a refurbed mid-2012 MBP. I do intense photo processing and 4GB RAM was not going to cut it. I feared the 8GB limit that Apple says this machine has. But when I saw that Crucial had 16GB available I had to try it. I've used Crucial RAM other times in the past. So I felt confident that this would work. And it did. Now I have a screaming MBP with 16GB of lightening fast RAM. It was easy to install and when I fired up the machine and checked in Info there it was, reading all 16GB. Thanks Crucial.

I love this enclosure despite its quirkiness. The sled that holds the drive is too long once the drive is attached and screws are inserted, so the sled won't fit all the way back in the enclosure because it hits the opposing screws that hold the enclosure together on the far end. My solution: Take a Dremel tool with a cutting wheel before placing the drive and cut about 1/4" of the fins on distal end of the sled that slide into the groove on each side of the enclosure to secure the drive. This allows the drive sled to slide completely into the enclosure with the drive attached and it does not affect the stability of the drive in the enclosure at all. I have 3 of these and have used two more for upgrades for friends. They work flawlessly.

It works as it is suppose too. most of the time my computer does not even use 7 of the 16 gig.
I upgraded the RAM from 4GB to 16GB on my 2012 MacBook Pro. Huge performance improvement. At first I purchased 8GB and then decided to return the 8GB and go ahead and max out at 16GB. Hassle-free return on the 8GB and speedy delivery of the 16GB! Kudos to the Crucial team!
Installed this on a used Macbook 2012 that I'd just purchased that came with 4GB ram. It took only a few minutes to install, and the increase in response time was instantly noticeable!
I upgraded my macbook pro to 16 gig of memory. It's better than new.
I had gotten so used to having only 4GB of memory. My computer had been so slow. Ever since I replaced it with 16GB, my computer works so much better. Crucial's easy-to-follow instructions made it very simple to replace the Memory.
Upgraded my macbook pto to 16gb ram. Fast quick and easy purchase.
At first I hesitated before buying it but i gave it a try and boom! after installing it properly and putting on my Mac everything thing starting running smoothly. I made the right decision
Everything they said it would be. Great service, great product.
Installed easily, works well under both Linux and OSX. I use the McBook for embedded c/c++ development and needed more RAM for quicker builds. I really don't believe you need 16 Gig if you're a typical "web browser and email" user.
Despite multiple attempts to get them to seat properly there continued to be problems with the computer locking up. Re-installing the old RAM solved the problem.
