When I opened the small plastic container holding the two memory sticks I was confronted with food crumbs presumably remnants of the packers lunch. After installing the memory everything seemed fine but them programs and games would not load or they crashed. Ran the Windows RAM checker and found that one of the memory sticks was full of errors. Ran another bootable RAM checker and got the same results. The stick which had the problem was the one with the cheap company label stuck on top of the memory stick. I doubt the packer was taking sufficient handling precautions especially if they were eating their lunch at the time!
On this evidence this outfit appears to be an amateur operation and I would not recommend them.
Initially the 8GB were not recognised so I removed them and installed one of the 4GB and one of the original 1GB and turned the laptop on. It worked. I repeated this twice to make sure both 4GB cards were working. Satisfied they were both in working order I then reinstalled both 4GB cards and this time it worked perfectly!
It has only been a few days since installing but so far so good. I have had no issues and the laptop is working noticeably smoother and faster!
I am a photographer and digital artist and use all the main image editors but my Macbook Pro was showing its age! I originally after 3 years, upgraded to 3GB RAM when I bought Aperture 3 cheap, off the App store and found it unbearable to use (as I've always found with Aperture). With 3GB it was still slow and annoying waiting for actions to work all the time and there were all the unexpected quits from kennel panics.
As I've been considering going Pro and realised I needed more of a reliable workflow, I started reading all these reviews on Max RAM for my Macbook Pro, and found they were saying that a firmware update meant I could now go to 8GB, even though it should have taken 4GB max (though some had had success with up to 6GB before this).
So I bought the 8GB and it works great! Definite improvement in Aperture 3, which was just hogging everything and fans running all the time! Photoshop CS5 runs super smooth and with no fans most of the time.
I can now multitask much better too between programs. I find the system does make good use of the 8GB as well for Photoshop and other image editors. E.g. right now i'm using Google Chrome (hogger of RAM when using multi tabs), Mail, and Aperture 3 and I have 3.5GB RAM free but that's with Aperture 3 in background doing nothing.
I'll just add that the RAM arrived quickly as well and was well packaged in a packet that fit through my letter box (no waiting in or collecting from post office when at work!). I would fully recommend this RAM, especially for this price! My Macbook, aside from now having a couple of dints in the top case, is good to go again for OS Lion and beyond!Read more ›
On the RAM there is a label which says "Lifetime Warranty" and this is also stated in the Amazon item description. I've checked the Komputerbay website and there's little to no information regarding warranty. The company is also based in the USA, with no office in the UK from what I can tell. I've tried to contact the Komputerbay regarding the Lifetime Warranty but have not received a response.
Looking through the reviews I see there are a lot of people who have experienced similar problems with this RAM. I would recommend you avoid the Komputerbay and pay a little bit more for something reliable that comes with a genuine warranty.
Give this RAM a try.
