              To begin with my custom build Mac Mini was headed over budget when I checked with B&H on RAM prices and found I could have it all, yes! After checking specs, I knew this was a no brainer and B&H carried the quality and price point that would get me to a 7 second cold boot time! I have arrived. Not mechincal? No worries, there are vacuum cleaner bags harder change out… one can do this and besides you've got B&H!

              My two cents,

                This was planned for the Mac Mini since the day it was purchased. Photo shop loads in seconds instead of minutes. I could not be more pleased with price and delivery time. Four days purchase to delivery. It would have been three if I had not ordered it on a weekend. Five minutes installation time. Pull off bottom, rock out the old and roll in the new. Replace the bottom and done.

                Thank you, B&H

                    Installed this memory in my new Mac-Mini 2012 2.3 GHz Intel Core i7, taking it from 4G to 16G. Super easy to install, and it made an instant, amazing performance difference with the computer. Everything is snappier to respond. Computer and apps launch SO much faster. Photoshop and Illustrator run SO much better, much more responsive.

                      Comments about Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) 204-Pin SODIMM DDR3 PC3-12800 Memory Module Kit (Mac):

                      My 2.3 GHz i7 15" 2012 MacBook Pro only shipped with 4GB of RAM. I constantly had issues with slow performance and software crashes (I'm a video editor). But, the moment I installed this 16GB RAM set from Crucial, I noticed much more reliable performance and increased speeds while using applications ranging from video editing apps (Media Composer, Premiere and FCPX - I use them all) to simple text apps and browsers. Since installing the additional RAM, I also installed a 240GB Crucial SSD and now my MacBook Pro is like a new animal screaming with speed and performance across all apps. I chose Crucial because I used them previously and never had a problem. Installing the max RAM on your computer is a crucial update for any serious computer user - and it's also extremely easy to do yourself. BTW - B&H always has the best prices and service anywhere. Couldn't be happier.

                        Used 2 x 8Gb sticks to upgrade the 2 x 2Gb stock ones in my Mac Mini
                        They simply worked immediately and boot time was noticably faster, as were all other functions
                        Definitely highy recommended and the way to a faster Mac
                        FYI the video memory (shared) went from 384Mb to 1Gb instantly, so I have 15Gb available for other stuff and therefore can't recommend going from 4 to 8Gb only

                          I am using a non-retina 13" mid 2012 MacBook Pro that came with 4 GB of ram. This is a great computer, but being in the middle of my senior year of college I could not afford any sluggishness. I noticed that my computer was running more slowly with all the web research I was performing along with needing multiple MS Word documents and PDFs open at the same time. I was uncertain if a faster hard drive or more ram would fix the issue, so I chose the ram. It was easy to install and my performance picked up right away, my term paper and research are going much more smoothly. The price for performance boost I recieved was just what I needed.

                            I popped these in my 15" mid-2012 MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 9,1) and it's working great.

                              I add these to my Thinkpad W530 laptop, which allows up to 4 DDR3 memory modules. Now my laptop has a total of 24G RAM. Besides SSD and CPU, adding RAM is the best choice of improving use experience---and RAM is considerably cheaper than upgrading CPU.

                              Well, what can I say about these RAM? Nothing---The only time you will notice the differences of 2 RAM is when one of them breaks, and your computer starts to complain about it at boot-up.

                              As long as we are buying from reputable brands (e.g., Crucial) from reputable seller (e.g., B&H), what matters is the price.

                              In my case, B&H happens to have the lowest price at the time of my purchase.

                                  Significant performance improvement and its mac compatible. But don't think its going to change your boot time...

                                    I always have a great experience with B & H. The memory works flawlessly in my late 2012 MacBook Pro. The price beat everyplace else on the web. Also, when considering this upgrade, I inquired on B&H chat as to whether 16GB would work in my MacBook, since it's not officially supported. The chat agent did the responsible thing and stated that it was unsupported and that he/she wouldn't recommend the upgrade. Very professional! (I bought it anyway, and it works flawlessly.)

                                      Item was exactly as advertised. Great prices, shipped fast, much quicker than advertised, very professional and helpful on the phone. I will (and have) recommend them to my friends and colleagues and will buy from them again.
