    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.

    Just works in my 2012 McBook Pro, under both OSX and Linux

    By mbrugman

    from Green Bay, WI

    Verified Reviewer

    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.

      • Don't seem to seat properly.

        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.

        Pros

        • Easy To Self-install
        • Immediately Fixed Speed
        • Quick Shipping

          Best Uses

          • Fixing Laptop Speed
          • Fixing Ram Capability

          I bought this product to fix the RAM on my 2013 macbook pro. After watching a Youtube video and buying the right tool, it was easy to self-install. As soon as I rebooted my computer I could instantly tell the difference.

          I'm able to have multiple Adobe products open and work seamlessly.

          Bought this as an upgrade for my 13-inch MacBook Pro mid 2012 (4 RAM), which became extremely slow after upgrade to OS Sierra. Was a little nervous about compatibility, but everything worked out just fine. It's pretty fast now.

          Works with a twist

          By James

          from Plano, TX

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • Easy To Install

          Cons

          • Need To Show How To Reset

          Best Uses

            Install was fast/easy. Don't be nervous. Apple says it will only support 8MB, but it WILL do 16 if you do a PRAM reset:
            - Turn it off.
            - Hold the CMD+Option+P+R (yes, all 4)
            - THEN hit the on button.
            - let it cycle for 3 "ons" - it takes less than a minute.
            it will recognize the memory and you are set.
            Good luck.
