neilhart Review by Solid Memory at a very good price
I purchased the memory becuase of the price and immediate availability. The memory does what it should and has run many days 24/7 without issue in a Intel low-profile motherboard. Good packaging, visually a good looking quality parts that have passed my testing and are now in daily use. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Good memory, low prices Review by ggrpitt
Flawless memory upgrade for a HP Probook 4430s. The computer has been running strong since I bought the upgrade without a glitch. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
AWESOME price, AWESOME performance. Review by Andrew King
Short and sweet; purchased this ram for my Mac Mini, late 2012 model to upgrade the ram myself.

I did notice that the heatsink plates were so large that they had to be removed to fit into the Mac Mini, but that's by fault of the Mac's tiny design. However the plates slipped off with zero effort, and I was able to install this ram, half asleep, with no issue at all lol (I was SO excited to install it when it arrived at 8 AM!)

After running some Geekbench tests, I get 13060 on my Mac Mini, 2.6 GHz Quad core i7, 1 TB Fusion drive with this exact ram. That's BEAST. Awesome price, awesome quality, and I received the exact same product pictured and advertised. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
2012 MacMini - maxed out ram Review by Digital Donkey
This ram works great in my 2012 Mac Mini. While I could have gotten away with going with 8GB I opted for this kit of 16GBs for times I need to offload final cut pro tasks from my MBP. I ran memtest on the ram as soon as it was installed and it passed with flying colors. I highly recommend for the price. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Memory with heat spreaders, tight fit, working fine., Review by Phil95695 "Phil
I wanted memory with heat spreaders because of tight space. Took four careful attempts to get the second DIMM to latch, had it not I was going to remove second DIMM's spreader. It would just slide off then wipe off the heat paste. Delivery was free and as promised. Nice surprise was computer activated memory kit as dual channel. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Great performances with a great price Review by Abdullah Albyati
this RAM is great My Laptop is much much faster now especially I do a lot of heavy work on it like network emulators and a lot of designs it used to be slow when I had the original 8 G RAM that came with my laptop but after I added this Komputerbay 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz the laptop is super fast now ... Thank u For a great product ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Good Memory with a couple of hiccups Review by GREGORY FLAGLER
2nd set of Komputerbay memory I have bought for my mac computers. Put it in a 2012 Macbook Pro (non retina), and it didn't give me any trouble, computer ran very, very well. Had to sell that computer and drop down, so to speak, to a 2012 Mac Mini. Now, I am convinced, while when it works, it works well, but I think that the memory is causing kernel panics on this particular machine (I'd say a few crashed programs as well as computer shutdown, but that has happened about twice (shutdowns; the big issue is the mail program w/OSx Lion, which crashes about once a day). I have read other reviews where these memory sticks may cause a few hiccups, but, based on previous purchases, if you don't mind taking a small risk, they are a decent company to purchase from. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Komputerbay 16GB RAM Review by Dean
i bought this 2x8GB RAM for my macbook pro 13" early 2012 w/ processor 2.5GHz Intel Core i5, upgrading from 2x2GB
it arrived really really fast! and installing it wasn't hard at all (once i managed to get all of the screws out - not an easy task to do, but irrelevant)

So pleased with this product right now... ! my MBP is FAST! ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Memory upgrade at an excellent price. Review by Bachma "BJ"
I bought this upgrade for my new Macbook Pro which came with a meager 4GB memory. I was looking for something at a reasonable price.

Works Fine, Price Is Right Review by Amazon Customer
Bought 16 GB of this RAM for a brand new high-end laptop. It works as intended; I've had no problems with it whatsoever. I'm not an overclocker, so I can't comment on that, but as far as I'm concerned you can't beat the price-performance / "bang for the buck" ratio. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Mac Mini 2012 Compatible Review by Kitty Tenz
There isn't really much to write about a RAM, the only question is, if the RAM is compatible with the Computer I am using.

In my case, it's working awesome, no problems or issues at all with Komputerbay. I heard a lot of bad reviews about the brand, it won't be compatible and I don't see any reason, do spend 40$ more for corsair do have the same in the end.

This brand with 1600Mhz works flawless with the Mac Mini 2012 2.3Ghz i7.

Edit: One RAM used to fail after a couple of months, it was visible through Apples Hardware Test, so I contacted Komputerbay via Mail, they replied with their return form, printed, filled it out and sent back the faulty RAM. After a week, they sent me back a new one, now it works perfectly!

Don't be afraid to contact their Support! They reply really quick and handle the issue in a matter of a week, and you are guaranteed with Life-time Warranty, so why not take advantage of it? ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Mac memory Review by Amazon Customer

Komputerbay 16GB DDR3 memory Review by Isee
The Komputerbay 2x 8GB chips fit very snugly in my laptop computer. In fact, I had to reverse the two chips in the computer for them to fit and close completely in their respective holders. However, once installed, the BIOS "saw" the 16GB without further incident. Don't know if the HUGE heat sinks make a difference or not, but the bottom of the computer case gets only slightly warm (not at all hot) and is comfortable on the lap without any kind of computer pad or other insulation. Editing photos in PhotoShop with this much RAM is a "snap". Even complex 18GB photos revise instantly... and I've had several other applications open at the same time with no degredation in apparent speed. I've had Chrome, PhotoShop, MS Access, MS Word and MS Excel all open at the same time with INSTANT switches between the programs (guess everything is being held in RAM and not having to swap out memory to the hard drive). Very pleased with the product's performance. Price was right too. Won't hesitate to buy other products from this company. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Great Product Once I finally installed it! Review by Andy
Since installing these in my MacBook pro (10.8.2), it has been much better! I can handle ARD, Photoshop, iMovie exporting, iPhoto project, and more without coming close to using up all of the Ram. Because this RAM has the heat shields, it does add quite a bit to their size, and when installing them so close too each other this proves complicated. My first installation the computer actually would not boot and i opened it back up and they looked in all the way. I took them out, switched them, and tried it again and it worked! But I definitely had to push the ram physically into the laptop more than I would have had to had there not been the black covering. However, after running a full memory test/scan, no errors came up and my mac can handle pretty much anything I throw at it now. Glad I did not spend $40 more to go with a brand that has a better reputation, because this works great! ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Ram Failed after 4 months Review by Mark D.
The Ram is great and works well for those memory hungry apps like After Effects, and if you like have a million windows open.

Unfortunately the ram failed today, after 4 months. Screen froze. Hard Rebooted to a Black Screen and 3 Beeps ( The memory fail test beep).

Not saying the ram is a bad product, just that the one I had didnt make it. A great deal non the less in comparison to the other brands.

Seems like a hit or miss with this product. I have friends who bought this product and its still running strong after a year so far.

So buy at your own risk. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Good Price - Clean Memtest86+ Diagnostic Results - Rivals Corsair Vengeance Review by Kaio
I took a chance on this no-name brand RAM when it cost 20 bucks less, and all seems to check out ok. The specs actually exceed my Toshiba Qosmio's capability, but they still work fine. Komputerbay seems to have a good line of affordable memory, with top performance specs that rival the the much more expensive Corsair Vengeance 16gb RAM. And frankly, I've never thought much of Corsair, so taking a chance on this lesser known company was no biggie for me. I ended up getting the Blue ones, but the specs are identical to this one.

Nothing Fancy

The packaging is very plain and non-retail looking. Komputerbay just prints their own stats on an Avery label and sticks them to the aluminum heatspreaders. I was tempted to pull the heatspreaders off and take a look at the chips themselves, but I decided not to mess with it. I know there's only a handful of places on the planet that manufacture RAM chips, so I'm not too concerned, since I know that ultimately they all come from the same source. But fancy packaging ultimately serves no purpose than to give the consumer a false sense of security, and we end up paying extra for the frills. Once these are installed in your computer, it doesn't matter much what the packaging looked like.

Diagnostic Testing

I used Memtest86+ to do a thorough testing of this RAM. The whole test took about 2.5 hours, and all checked out OK with no errors. I uploaded pictures to the product page showing the test results. I also uploaded a screen shot of CPU-Z generated stats on this memory as well. My results shows slightly different clock time than the 10-10-10-27 quoted by Komputerbay, and I'm not sure why, but they seem to work just fine. Perhaps these just exceed my laptop's capability.

Smooth Sailing

I've been using this memory for about a week now, and have encountered no glitches or errors, or anything to give me any concern. They seem to be functioning properly, and my computer is snappier than ever. Photoshop and my video editing programs have plenty of room to operate smoothly with 16gb at their disposal. I often have dozens of windows and documents opened at once, and all of them flow easily with all this memory.


If you've never done it before then it could be daunting, but it literally took me 5 minutes and I was back up and running. No fuss; no muss.

Nice Heatspreaders

Komputerbay sells many of these RAM sticks, which appear to be identical. Some have black heat spreaders, some have no heatspreaders, and ultimately, I chose this one, because I like blue, and for some reason, these were priced less than the others, even though the specs are identical. I consider it to be a bargain at the price I paid, and I get my favorite color to boot. Not that it matters much, once they're installed. I was a little worried, the heatspreaders would add too much thickness to stack 2 RAM sticks on top of each other. But they installed just fine, and seemed to have plenty of room between the 2 RAM sticks.

Bottom Line

This Komputerbay memory was a great deal, and it pays off to browse all of their listings, because they have several of these listed multiple ways at different prices, but they all have the same specs. I'm very happy with the memory thus far, and do not anticipate any problems. Great price for 16gb. Don't forget to check out my pics if you're interested in seeing the test results for yourself. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Worked very well Review by JayM
It's worked very well for my HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 so far. It really helped productivity to upgrade to 16G from 8G. I usually use around 8G when my regular apps were launched, and it would noticeably slow down and I had to close some apps if I wanted to open more. Now this is no longer a problem and I can open as many as apps I like! ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Good for multitasking but not for gaming Review by raysboss
I bought this to play higher end games on my laptop. When playing moderate games such as xcom or witcher 2, it ran fine. When playing new games like Bioshock Infinite, my computer would crash. I looked up the problem and it was a ram failure. I did not exchange for new komputerbays but they are an up and coming business so I gave them 3 stars for being really cheap ram with heatspeaders. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Works good in HP ENVY DV7T 7212nr Notebook Review by E. N. Videtic
I just got a new HP ENVY DV7T 7212nr about a month ago with 8 gigs of ram and I wanted to upgrade it to the full 16 that it is capable of using so I thought I would try this Komputerbay memory. I installed it in about 5 minutes, it's a breeze on this HP, just one screw, the back cover comes off exposing the ram and it pops right out in seconds. I rebooted, and the computer recognized the new ram right away and I noticed that the boot time was a little faster as well. I have Windows 8 on this machine but I'm running Start 8 by Stardock which allows me to have it look and feel like Windows 7 which I prefer. I ran the memory test and there were no errors found so I was happy with that part of it also. As far as performance, this machine even with 8 gigs of ram is very fast, and it boots up in about 10 to 12 seconds from a cold start. I haven't seen a huge increase in speed but thats ok it's fast enough for me and where I do see a difference is in how many applications I have open at one time. At one point before I upgraded I used to get the " not enough memory to run this application" error, and I don't get those errors anymore with 16 gigs of ram.

There is one thing that does get affected by this upgrade and that is the Intel Rapid Start will not work anymore after you upgrade the ram. There is a solid state device on the motherboard and that is set to a specific amount set by HP, and once you change to more ram that isnt going to work anymore. You can get Rapid Start to function again by changing the solid state device on the motherboard to a larger one but for me I could care less if Rapid Start worked or not. The Rapid Start technology is supposed to bring the computer out of sleep or hibernation mode very fast, but I find that my HP comes out of hibernation in about 6 seconds and thats fine with me I would rather have the performance and be able to run more applications at once than have Rapid Start running. Would have been nice to have it but I don't see any speed difference when I shut down or go into hibernate modes.

So just be aware that if you upgrade an HP laptop that has Rapid Start on it to 16 gigs of ram, you will lose the Rapid Start feature, but thats no big deal. I rather have the 16 gigs of memory.

So far so good with this Komputerbay ram, it's been almost a week and the computer is running fine. The Komputerbay ram has the heat spreaders on it, and that did not have any effect on the install. I put the ram into the slots and both sticks fit perfectly and snapped down in place same as the original ram that I took out, so there is no issue with the heat spreaders. I read a few reviews saying on some laptops the heat spreaders had to be popped off to fit the ram sticks in place but that isnt so on this new HP ENVY laptop.

Overall I am very pleased with this Komputerbay ram, it came in a good snap open plastic case, which is where I put the old ram I took out for safe keeping. The computer runs cool, I don't see any increase in temperatures even when viewing Youtube videos and playing music. I haven't done any gaming on this HP yet, however it's capable of gaming as it has the i7 3rd generation processor, and the Nvidia 650m video card with 2 gigs of video ram, but so far its running very cool. I have a Dell studio 17 that I've been using for 4 years and that machine could fry eggs on the palm rest when you look at Youtube videos but not so on this HP.

I don't think you can beat the price on this ram, or the performance for the money. I was going to get the Crucial Vengence ram but thats a lot more money and I thought I would try this Komputerbay first and see how it runs. It works, and it works very well. Thanks also to Amazon for a speedy delivery of this ram as well. I've been building and working on computers since 1987 so I have a lot of component experience and I feel this ram is a decent product or it wouldn't be in my new HP laptop. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Komputerbay 16GB (2x 8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz SODIMM 204-Pin Laptop Review by Todd
Never heard of this company before. But took a change and the RAM works. No issues so far and I now have more RAM to use for whatever I want. I did have to take one of the heatshields off so it would fit. That is the laptops fault not the products. Just be aware that you may have to do the same if you have your DIMM slots on top of each other at an angle. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Fast RAM for Mac Mini (late 2012) Review by tazpizzazz "Taz"
Bought 16GB (2 x 8) for a late 2012 Mac Mini upgrade. When I first booted the machine, I got the dreaded 3 beeps (which means the memory was not properly recognized), but when I took the RAM out, switched the order of placement, rebooted, all was well and has been fine for about 3 months now. Not sure what happened, as the RAM was seated properly, but glad it all is working fine now. The pricing is good for this product, and I've used Komputerbay RAM in 2 other Macs without incident. Recommended! One caveat for this product, the heatspreaders are not cemented to the RAM, so when I went to remove the RAM the first time, the heatsinks came right off! Easy to put them back on again, but this made it a bit tricky to pull the RAM out after installation. Not a deal breaker, just a note to those who choose to buy this item. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Good ram but had to remove the heat spreader Review by CyberCowboy
Ordered this for a lenovo laptop, however as other reviews have said it doesn't fit with the heat spreaders on, the ram works great without it though.

Another thing about the heat spreader, it's basically a thin piece of metal folder over, there is no thermal paste connecting it to the chips to facilitate the transfer of heat to the spreader easier so removal is very easy. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase again (in fact I have for some DDR 2 ram from KomputerBay) ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Cheap and Memory Test Completed Successfully Review by M. May "MRyno"
I threw these into my Samsung Series 7 Ultra notebook and everything works great. I did need to remove the heatsinks/thermal tape, but that was simple enough. It has worked for the past couple of weeks without any issues (8+ hours per day). I was a little hesitant, but I have no regrets at all. When I bought this (89 USD), the heatsink model was cheaper than the model without them, but it looks like the price has gone up slightly. Overall, great product! ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

I would recommend this product to friends. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Bad chips Review by R. Kenyon van Lier "rakvl"
Installed these in my new 27" iMac - immediately the computer began behaving weirdly and freezing frequently. After several calls to Apple tech support and about 3 days of troubleshooting, finally took them out and replaced the original chips. Computer worked like a charm. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Great product Review by carl Sopranik
Excellent quality and performs well. Installed it in my 2012 Macbook Pro and it does what it is supposed to do. No glitches or issues to date. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Got it for my Mac Mini Review by Randy Hinger
One of the easiest ways that I have found to optimize the performance of a computer is to max out the ram on it. This did just that for my Mac Mini and the increase in speed is incredible. Did exactly what I needed it to do. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Perfect set, second time around Review by Raphael Salgado "beyondthetech"
The first pair of DIMMs was causing random crashes on my 2012 Mac mini. I did the memory test and it consistently failed. A quick call to Amazon resulted in a second pair being sent over, and that passed after a more rigorous testing. Had to knock a star for that, but at least my machine is cruising at 16GB and barely needing to use a slow swap file ever again. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Took a chance Review by Jason M
The price was right and after reading some of the other reviews I decided to go for it. I'm glad I did. Put into my 2012 mac mini and works great. I will definitely buy from them again when the occasion arises. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Not reliable cheap stuff Review by Valentine Palazkov
I always tried not to save some money on laptop components, but this time I decided to try the cheapest memory that matched my laptop spec - MSI Computer Corp. MSI GT70 2OC-059US;9S7-176312-059 17.3-Inch Laptop

This one seemed good to go, so I bought it.

My laptop was able to work with this memory for about 5 minutes, then shut down.

I put out it and removed silly heats sinks (starting from this step warranty is void), put memory back but no improvement at all - my laptop still shut down in 5 minutes.

I suggest you to look for more reliable alternatives. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Very nice product Review by Amazon Customer
After using the RAM in my Dell Precision laptop for about a month, I feel that the RAM is at par with the costly ones in the market. Way to go guys, this RAM rocks! :-)

DOA --- Amazon return went smoothly Review by hmaarrfk
I am giving this 3 stars because the return was handled smoothly from Amazon.

My ram failed memtest86+ and was giving me random crashes. Seems like the ram is working well for others though. I hope you don't have the same experience. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Macbook Pro 2012 is now blazing fast, Review by Sean Madigan
I bought this RAM due to the good reviews, but still expecting the possibility of it to be terrible since I and no one I know has ever heard of Komputerbay. However, at this point buying this RAM is the best idea I ever had. My 2012 Macbook Pro is blazing fast and it rules. Photoshop CS6 opens in less than 3 seconds. It is awesome. Highly recommend this RAM. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
It doesn't work in my mac Review by jacktryles

Great RAM Review by Stormin
I bought 2 x 8 GB RAM that has performed exceptionally since installed. I run many clients of games on my laptop and know that RAM isn't the culprit that you usually go after to fix heat issues.... but.... the RAM greatly increased the abilities of my computer and have made it run much cooler. All games run faster and I don't get the overheat shutdowns like I used to (HP Pavilion common problem). Great product all around and you can't beat it for the price!!!! ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Never worked! Review by Mohammad Sedighi
My MacBook kept freezing and crashing when I installed Komputerbay memory. I tried both modules and both caused problems.
Unfortunately I was busy to mail it back to the seller. Waste of money. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Works Great! Review by Russell Irving
The memory is working great and I have had no problems with it.I was worried about the heat spreaders not letting the memory fit in the laptop,but I had no problems. I'm running windows 8 and using Adobe and both are operating with no hang ups. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)

Blazing fast Review by Cory
This was an awesome deal for 16GB of ram with the heat shield, I purchased for my 2012 MacBook Pro and the performance is astonishing. I'm a commercial photographer that dabbles with video and the added speed is benefit especially when I'm working under tight deadlines. I am highly considering making another purchase for my iMac next. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Works great in my Mac Mini Review by J. Jennings
I was little nervous about buying RAM from a company named Komputerbay, but the price was right and luckily the RAM works wonderfully. No issues installing it in my late 2012 Mac Mini. Hasn't given me any problems in the couple months that I've had it. I will buy Komputerbay again if the price is right. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
computer can't read Review by Den
At least all my Lenovo computer or laptop keep having error after install the extra ram. I make all the spec from Lenovo before purchase. But you pay what you get. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
My mini loves these! Review by Jefbear
I bought these to up the RAM in the Mac Mini in my recording studio. They seem to be just fine.
I bought a couple other things from Komputerbay and I am pretty happy with their products so far :) ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Absolutely the best price! Review by Thomas S. Thelen
I was skeptical buying memory from a small unknown business, however the product arrived packed the same as the name brand high priced stuff, and i've been using it for a month and couldn't be happier. It has made my Mac mini lightning fast! ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
Verdict is still out Review by John Graham
I purchased this and received it in a timely manner. It worked right away, and I haven't had any issues with the RAM itself. RAM tends to either work or not. (I'm sure some super nerdy folks would disagree)

Why not 5 stars, I give that when things go above and beyond good service... for example if they had include a sheet of instruction on how to install this in an iMac.

Well, wouldn't you know it I jinxed myself. The RAM has gone bad and randomly is causing crashes. I've had this checked out with Apple, and will be seeking different RAM.

Contacted Komputerbay directly and they responded in under a day to work the return/exchange. will update this with the next steps. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
So far so good, Review by BrianD
I'm using these chips in a Lenovo X220. It's overkill. I think that 8GB would have been plenty. I use Photoshop and Lightroom on my Laptop, but I doubt I will ever reach the need for 16GB. With the increase in the price of RAM I think one should save ones money, and stick to only what you need. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
This works just fine for my application. Review by aspro
No issues installing this in my laptop and one can tell a big difference in the speed it performs complex tasks. Could have spent a lot more money but don't really think it would increase the perfromance at all. ***This review was posted on:*** (Posted on 06/06/2014)
No Issues, Great Product Review by Otis Crockett
