    Crucial CT2K8G3S160BM reviews

    16GB DDR3 1600 MHz SO-DIMM Memory Module Kit for Mac (2x 8GB) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 321.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect upgrade for Apple MacBook Pro MD101, 102, 103, 104 With 15+ years of experience in upgrading Mac systems in Chile -and with knowing of another brands with some failed modules, data corruption and warranty procedures-, now I'm selling and installing Crucial for Mac memory upgrades only: All Mac systems with Crucial Memory Upgrades runs fine and fast with this memory modules. None of them has failed, no one memory error ever, no need to loose time and money with warranties. This DDR3L 1.35V also capable of work with DDR3 1.5V makes this compatible with PC systems too, so for a bit $ more than the generic DDR3, this DDR3L is a more convenient option from at investment point of view too.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works but... I'm updating my previous review. I bought an iMac 5K and this memory does work well in it BUT only if you use Crucial memory without Apple memory. If you add these modules to an iMac 5K that also has stock Apple memory, you will get kernel panics and it will constantly freeze up and reboot. After a day of this, I wasn't able to start my mac at all and had to bring it into the @. If you run a diagnostic check with both types of memory you will get an error. Run the diagnostic check with just the Crucial memory or just the Apple memory everything works fine and you won't run into any problems. So yes, it works great on it's own BUT DO NOT MIX WITH APPLE MEMORY, they do not play well together! I hope this saves other iMac 5K users some headaches. Thank you to both B&H and Apple for helping me resolve this issue!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect match for MacBook Pro 2012 Model This 16 GB of RAM does work correctly in the 2012 MacBook Pro and it is recognized at 1600 MHz. All the functions of the MacBook Pro are working in perfection. With 16GB of RAM multitasking is a breeze. Memory installation is fairly easy. There are several youtube videos which demonstrate RAM installation in MacBook Pro. There are step by step instructions as well on apple's website. Crucial memory are well respected and have won several awards for quality and reliability. So if you are in market to upgrade the RAM of your MacBook Pro 2012, this memory is highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from added on 27 Imac (Late 2012) to get 24GB - blazing fast! I am an average user - don't do heavy graphics, or use heavy applications, but I do have many apps running at the same. I didn't think that for what I do I needed more memory. Turns out I was very wrong. Follow Apple's instructions for IMacs from Late 2012 or later - easy 5 minute start to finish, and makes a huge difference. Now I have 24 GB and my IMac using 12GB on average. 8GB were clearly not enough. Totally worth it. Had no problem mixing these with the Apple stock 2x4GB.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable System Improvement The memory upgrade on my Mac Mini (Late 2013 running Mavericks) was quick and simple. I was suspecting that my system was sluggish due to a memory short fall but not completely sure that was the problem. Following the upgrade the system is performing much faster. I find application responsiveness much improved and also I notice much less disk activity. As always, I found B&H to communicate transaction status accurately, ship promptly, and maintain the most competitive prices. Additionally, their customer reviews are very informing and tremendously help with decision making. Very pleased with this product and B&H retail experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from price is what matters 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am not a Computer Jedi I am a pro photographer/videographer and I can say there was a noticeable and significant improvement when rendering video. I upgraded from 8GB RAM to 32GB RAM on my 2011 iMac. I bought 2 packs (4 x 8GB) and placed the cards in the 4 slots. For me, it was worth the investment as I save time and I am able to work on other tasks on the computer while it rendered video. I even noticed that web pages popped up faster when surfing the net. I was told by a computer techie that 8GB is all I need but after the upgrade, I can confidently say, he was wrong. The improved performance made a difference for me.
