      I had a mid 2011 iMac with 8GB RAM. I got this kit. The iMac was supposed to max out at 16GB, but I was able to go 2X2GB + 2X8GB = 20GB total with no problem. I suspect you could unofficially get two of these and do 4x8GB = 32GB in some iMacs that claim to only support 16GB.
      Very pleased. 5-10 minute install.

        I purchased my Macbook Pro in 2012 from B&H with the intention to upgrade my memory but I never did. This fall I decided to do it. I went from the standard 4gb to 16gb and am amazed at the difference. If you are on the fence about upgrading your memory… JUST DO IT. You'll be glad you did.

          Upgraded my MacBook Pro from the original 4GB to this 16GB of RAM, and notice immediate improvement! Everything moved much quicker. I am so glad that I made this upgrade, with such noticeable speed increase! This was SOOOOO very easy to install as well. I was afraid to open my Macbook, but I followed the video on Apples's website, and it was a breeze. This investment was well worth the money.

                      Despite calling for a #2 Phillips screwdriver (the one with such a small head you can't see any number on it even if you're wearing reading glasses), the whole process of removing the paltry factory-installed memory chips (two 2 GB) and replacing them with 2 Crucial 8 GB ones was relatively simple. My iMac recognized the new memory without hesitation. Haven't seen too many of the maddening spinning beach balls lately, either--which, I assume, is the result of the new Crucial memory doing its job.

                        I used this memory to upgrade my early 2011 MacBook Pro laptop (Model A1286). Although the laptop specs said this model was limited to 8GB total (2x4GB), the 16GB works flawlessly. I did a lot of research and B&H provided the best pricing and shipping options.

                        Upgraded from 4GB to 16GB in my MacBook Pro and everything is much smoother now. Especially when running larger channel counts and effects in my recording software. I waited a couple months before I wrote this just to have a chance to use it and see if anything is different. The MB gets a little warm but I don't know that it's any hotter than it was before.

                          It works exactly as expected, but the real story here is the extraordinary way B&H Photo's Customer Service handled my return on another memory - I was given incorrect information from the vendor of my laptop telling me my laptop is compatible with the memory with higher speed. Well, they were WRONG! But, B&H not only paid for the return shipping of the wrong memory, but are paying to ship me the RIGHT product and even refunded the difference in price!!!

                          I LOVE you guys! and, I WILL be back.

                          B&H had the best deal for these Crucial RAM Memories. They are expensive elsewhere and this was my perfect opportunity to purchase these at a reasonable cost for upgrading my iMac. They are working great and I can do multiple tasking at once. Please be aware, Crucial Memories works best with Apple products. S&H was speedy and packed well.

                              I have a 17in Macbook Pro running Maverick OS and the OS has really slowed down my machine. I upgraded the RAM and it is AWESOME!!!

                                Apple recommends a slower chip but this one works super fast.

                                  I wasn't able to purchase an SSD at this time, so I figured the next best thing would be to get more RAM. While often running LR5 and CS6 at the same time, things tend to bog down. I upgraded from having 8GB of RAM in my iMac to now having 20GB, and I've noticed an exceptional increase in how well my machine keeps up with the demands of RAM-hogging programs that I just mentioned.

                                  I was a little hesitant to buy, i was getting mixed info on what memory I needed for my early 2011 macbook pro (i5). Turns out there was nothing to worry about; it all works perfectly.

                                  Coupled with an SSD, this machine hardly misses a beat now, even under load. Activity monitor shows absolutely no swap file, unless I purposely try to max it out - but this is usually done with a completely unrealistic scenario (numerous memory hungry applications open at once with multiple projects).

                                  Very happy!

                                    I needed the additional RAM in order to help speed up the conversion of more than 7,100 slides to digital format. The B & H price (as usual) was far better than Crucial's and the installation into my 27" iMac was simple and took less than 20 minutes.

                                      Upgraded my iMac mid 2011 with this pair (already had 2x4gb and 2x2gb, replaced the 2s to make 24gb total) and we are running super fast.
