My MacBook Pro Mid 2012 was running very slowly after installing the newest OS10.13.1 High Sierra operating system and by changing my memory slots from 4GB total to 8GB it now runs like it did when new. Great product and service!!

The RAM memory works well on my late 2012 Mac Mini. Easy to install and I saw an immediate improvement is performance. B & H, of course, delivered the correct item (as described on the site) quickly and efficiently, which was also appreciated. Thanks.

Adding memory sounded daunting to me, but with the help of B&H chat I bought the right memory for my computer and used the instructions I was told about to install another 8gs. I felt really good about having done this.

Just upgraded my QNAP TS-451 with this pair and it worked flawlessly. The specs match the Crucial 8GB kit, but at a cheaper price point.

Upgrade to new Mac operating system was too much for my 4mb memory. Upgraded to 8, install was a snap, less than five minutes.

using a 4 GB and an 8 GB in the remaining two slots of late 2012 Mac goes against some recommendations of either using a pair or 4s or 8s?
Asked by: Larry
The only difference might be a very slight performance drop on applications that are memory intensive, like Photoshop, Illustrator, Final Cut Pro, etc... For most purposes you will never see any difference at all.

question

Will this upgrade a MSI GT72 I7 4710hq already with a 12gb 4+8 ddr3L 1600?
Asked by: Anonymous
We have not specifically tested it in that computer, but its specifications match the computer's requirements.
