Reported Bad, No Issues Experienced Review by new32 "new32"
Rating
I purchased this RAM to max my laptop and overall, there haven't been any user related issues. The increased RAM has really helped performance for my shared graphics and memory intensive applications that I use. Unfortunately, one stick constantly fails when checked using either the laptops bios tool or third party tools. The stick isn't bad but for production or server use, it would be no good. Given the price for home use, one stick with reported issues--again, I haven't seen any failures despite forcing a benchmark to literally eat up all my available RAM--isn't a bad deal. If you're worried, pay the extra couple of bucks for a more trusted brand. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

Works great with 27" iMac Review by Shawno

I purchased a total of 16 GB worth of this RAM in order to upgrade a late model 27" iMac. I took the machine from the factory stock 4 GB all the way up to 16 GB. I've had this Komputerbay RAM in the iMac for about a month now and no problems so far. Excellent value for this much RAM. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

8GB DDR3 RAM for laptop Review by Adv solorider

I purchased from Komputerbay because I found the best price from them and as with most RAM it came with lifetime warranty.

Item worked fine on initial install. No directions, but no problems. It was harder to remove the access panel on the Lenovo laptop.

Not for Mac computers Review by max2simi

I have a Macbook Pro 15" quad core i7 processor. I was hoping to upgrade this macbook pro to 8gb and I came upon this memory module. Shipping took a long time, and after it arrived, I replaced old ram with these two chips and after 15 mins of usage my computer crashed. I gave it a second shot and my computer had yet another "meltdown" (Kernel Panic). Will be returning this and purchasing Corsair ram for a few more dollars ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

Heard good reviews on this RAM but when installed in my 2011 Mac Mini, it failed memtest86 over and over. I was so frustrated when trying to edit a movie and it would crash over and over.

Doesn't Work on DELL Studio XPS 16 Core i7 QM720 Review by Eric

This is my 2nd set of 8GB memory at Amazon for my DELL Studio XPS 16 Core i7 QM720. The description says they are compatible. NOPE! When I plug the memory in and turn the laptop on, I get the low volume light just blinks. The 2 other lights next to it stays on. The computer came with 4GB; I'm running a few VMWare Workstations so I need the RAM upgrade. Does anyone know the right memory and the correct CL timing for my laptop?

Great product-for a few months.... Review by Annita Perry
Rating
I was hesitant to buy because of the cheap price, but it was super easy to install on my iMac. It took about two seconds, seriously. I've been using it for a few months now with no problems what so ever.
UPDATE: Worked great for a few months with no problems on my iMac. Computer suddenly began randomly shutting itself down several times a day. Took it to the Apple repair shop, was told that both sticks of Komputerbay memory that had been installed were faulty. Both were removed, computer is now working fine again. I guess sometimes you get what you pay for. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

Value priced memory that works Review by Ricardo Gomez
Rating
I needed to upgrade the ram on a Dell Latitude laptop in order to learn virtualization. Since this was a learning exercise, it was not mission critical. I figured why not try this memory out? If it failed I would just return it and try another brand. To my pleasant surprise, it worked just fine. The laptop saw it right away and there have been no lock ups or memory related issues at all while running 5 virtual machines at the same time ( yes, on a laptop ). The brand name may be a bit unusual but the product is solid. I would recommend it. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Komputerbay 8GB SODIMM Review by David K. Carpe "Basso Confundo"

I bought these SODIMMs to upgrade my Lenovo T410 after loading Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. The memory of course makes a huige difference in running a 64 bit OS and taking full advantage of the Intel Core i5 CPU in the laptop. It definitely flies.
Komputerbay was a pleasure to deal with. Their price was very reasonable and it qualified for my Amazon Prime shipping. The new RAM promptly and has been working flawlessly since January.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Komputerbay again. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Great memory at a great price Review by Matthew Sohn
Rating
I purchased this memory to upgrade my Mac Mini. The Mac was shipped with 2G originally, but I needed more memory to run Parallels and Windows 7 Professional. Yup, even though I use Mac at home, I still need Windows for work like so many others. But with the RAM up to 8G, I can run both Mac and Windows applications side by side, and amazingly, the Windows applications actually run faster than my Dell laptop. So the memory is working out great, and the price was the best at the time I ordered it from Amazon. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Macbook Pro 8GB memory upgrade Review by Paul "Paul"
Rating
This was an excellent upgrade for my MacBook Pro, the memory is very simple to install, just remove the small screws around the sides of the bottom panel and then lift off the panel. You will then see the 2 memory slots, just pull the clips on either side of the memory chip to pop them out, and then replace them with the new modules. Make sure you push the modules down flat until the clips on the side snap into place. Then replace the back panel and turn on the computer. Done!
The extra memory certainly helps speed up the machine. It was delivered very fast as well.
Please be sure to have the following screwdriver before removing the back of the MacBook Pro:
E-Flite Screwdriver, #00 Phillips
This is also sold on Amazon and is VERY cheap but also very necessary to remove the screws ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

I verified this product was compatible with my late 2011 MacBook Pro. I then purchased and installed just like I saw in a video online. I am pretty tech savvy but this is my first Mac so I wanted to be sure I new about any "tricks" there might be to open the case. It was almost as easy as a any other laptop and the OS recognized it immediately. I also run windows on this laptop and it also recognized the new ram immediately.

Great Service, But it didn't work out Review by Ale Sanchez Bailetti
Rating
The RAM shipped in two days, I bought it with the expectation that it would work with the Macbook Pro mid-2009 model, because in the description Tt says it does. but unfortunately for me, the 8GB module does not work with a Macbook Pro mid-2009 model and causes glitches and random shutdowns. it cant handle it at 1333Mhz so it would glitch up, however if you only want to use one 4GB module at a time it works. If you want 8gb RAM that works for that model of Macbook Pro buy crucial PC3-8500 1066Mhz.
However the team at Komputer Bay gave great customer support and gave me a refund quickly as well as paid for the shipping back ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Works, kind of.. Review by Christian R. Beer
Rating
I purchased this RAM for my 2011 Mac Mini i5 2.3GHz. The computer came stock with 2GB of RAM which is clearly not enough as some simple system tasks like opening or closing iTunes will stutter or even "beachball" for a second or two. So I decided to upgrade the RAM to at least 8GB.
I went with Komputerbay brand in an effort to save roughly $8 over the more trusted Crucial brand RAM. Not so sure that was the right choice here. Upon starting the computer after install I went into the system profiler to take a look at the RAM and make sure it was working OK and reading right. It read 16GB... not 8GB. I thought that was odd and thought that maybe they had shipped out the wrong size chips and stamped them incorrectly as well (lucky me right?). The system was much quicker and snappier.. applications opened and closed without hesitation. Then I gave it a real test and here's my issue with the RAM.
I decided to re-encode some video files to use them in iTunes. At random times during the heavy processor usage my Mac would give a Kernel panic and restart. It did this multiple times with two different programs... I popped in the original RAM and while slow again it did not cause any panic's through the same processes...
So I am not sure whether I received bad RAM or if it just isn't up to par... To sum this up: Buy Crucial or a similar trusted brand of RAM. $8 isn't too bad for a little piece of mind and some extra quality control. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Watch your MacBook Pro speed Review by nrkmann
Rating
Three stars because I don't think the memory is bad just the recommendation that this memory would be OK. Replaced PC8500 with PC1333. It is supposed to work at the slower speed but after a while, especially while running Parallels w/Win 7, the system crashes with a kernel panic. In reading several Mac forums the consensus is not to use any memory other than the original design speed. The original Samsung PC8500 memory works fine. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

Had some problems with this one.. Review by M. Hyman "Artist at large"
Rating
used this in a 2011 iMac. I had a lot of trouble getting it to work, and I'm not sure if it ever did... when i put it in first, the computer didn't work. I pulled it out, and reseated the memory. Still didn't work. Repeated this a few times. Finally everything was fine. Turned power off... couldn't get it to boot. Repeated a few times and swapped around memory slots and finally got everything working. A few weeks later, though, showed up with only 2M alive out of the 8M. Reseated again. Sometime in this process I also upgraded the Mac OS. And sometime there after the computer started to white screen on a regular basis. I ran some memory tools and it said there were RAM failures. Sometime after this, the hard drive become corrupted and needed to be reformatted.
Now, I'm not sure whether or not the RAM contributed to any of these problems, or whether it was an innocent bystander of some other issue (like the 10.8.1 upgrade). but, it certainly wasn't as seamless as i had hoped and i ended up pulling the RAM out for good. (and reformatting the hard drive etc) ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

I own a Mac/mobile device repair shop and do memory upgrades daily. Komputerbays memory is just as good of quality and performance as the more expensive RAM. I hope though as they get more popular they don't raise their prices *just because they can*. I recommended Komputerbay to anyone that asks. A little secret in this industry... there are only a handful of factories in china that makes memory and they all come from the same place and are branded differently... not all of course but memory is memory folks, if you can get it cheaper, DO IT! ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

Installed in a 2010 Macbook Pro - 100% compatible (don't forget the right tools to install). ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Received bad RAM Review by Erin A
Rating
I ordered 2 sets of this RAM for my 27" 2010 iMac. I was worried about installing them on my own but after watching a YouTube video linked below I felt confident and gave it a shot. I immediately noticed a huge difference in speed and was very thrilled. However, about three hours into it, my computer just shut off in the middle of working,and it was very hot. This went on for a few days. I downloaded an App to see my computer's internal fan was working and it was. After some online researching, I was told to take some RAM out and see if it was the culprit. It took me a few days to rotate and test each piece of RAM and sure enough, one of the boards (cards?) was bad and causing my computer to completely shut off. Unfortunately, I waited to long to install them in the first place and I am passed the 30 day return period window. Since they come in a set and have to be used that way, I am down 8GB. The other set is working fine. I just wish there was a longer return exchange period for defective merchandise. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
iMac 27 Inch Mid-2010 Review by Mindray
Rating
I was a little hesitant at first to buy this RAM from Komputerbay. After all the price is so incredibly cheap compared to what you would pay Apple for a RAM upgrade ($168 vs $1000 for 16GB of RAM). However, I decided to give it a try.The RAM came on time (fulfilled by Amazon and I am a Prime customer).
Note: upgrading RAM on an iMac will NOT void your warranty. Apple allows you to upgrade your own RAM and they provide you with directions on their website of how to do it.
Trying to install the RAM was pretty annoying at first. After removing the access panels, I must have tried 15 times to push the RAM into place. Apple's website says I should hear I click if it is installed correctly, but I could not get that to happen. After about 20 minutes, I decided to turn the iMac upside down and place it on my lap, with the top of the monitor now pointing at the floor. I thought this would help me get a little more force behind putting the RAM into place. It worked and I heard the click. After turning the computer back on (I experienced no problems), I clicked on the About System button on my Mac desktop...and there it said 16GB!
This is definitely a recommended purchase if you are looking to upgrade your RAM on the cheap.
Update: 06/20/2011. Still working great. No problems and my Mac is super fast. The price has decreased since I purchased it which makes this even more recommendable. I have seen a lot of reviews for other users who have not had success with this product. Please remember to read your computers spec and call your manufacturer to get ALL the details on which kind of RAM you can use. RAM has many different parts to it, including Parity, ECC, and speed. I have only used this with my Mid 2010 iMac and it works great. But please do your homework ahead of time or you may disappointed. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Happy Customer Review by Pixie "Glendale"

Could not get a good answer from HP, but after some research found that this works great for the new HP G42t-200 models. I received the order within three days, so delivery was great, and installed the modules in three minutes. (Did have to reseat them, but easy to tell the one was not installed correctly when you look at the amount of installed memory.) Very happy with purchase, especially considering that the next best proce I could getr was on Crucial brand for about $100 more and others are selling the two modules for as much as $500+. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Fantastic for my 27" iMac i5 Mid 2011 Review by ichawkeye2013
Rating
I was looking to order some much needed RAM for my computer (27" iMac i5 Mid 2011), and it was really difficult to find some that truly fit ALL of the specs, especially the PC3 10600 portion. This RAM was WAY cheaper than most, and it preforms amazingly alongside my existing RAM. This is AWESOME. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Great Mac Compatible Memory Review by Paul VanMiddlesworth "SoCal GreenMan"
Rating
Even though they do not list their memory as being Mac compatible, I have just installed the memory modules and my 2011 Mac mini is full o' memory.
While the manufacturer wanted [quite a bit more] to preinstall 8GB of memory in the new mini, I now have a full 8GB at a fraction of the cost.
All tests show top speeds.
Make your mac happy. :) ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Great RAM sticks for laptops Review by Onaga
Rating
I have purchased the RAM sticks from Komputerbay. At first I was hesitant, because I wanted to buy a name brand, but this deal did not only turnout to be great in price, it was fast, courteous, delivered on time and worked great on my laptop, which is way much faster now.
I am happy with the lifetime warranty also.
I thank Koputerbay for standing firm behind their products and giving costumers any needed support.
Please do not pay the extra just for the name of a product, look more into the service and quality of a product, because surely this product is made with quality assurance.
I give this Item A+++++ rating and would recommend it to all who need to upgrade ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Pleasant surprise Review by M. King "Sr. InfoSec Analyst"
Rating
The item I ordered was an 8GB kit (2x4GB) of DDR3 SODIMM (laptop memory) PC3-10600 with 9-9-9-24 latency.
Received quickly and popped them in and off and running in 5 minutes. Excellent upgrade from the 3GB (a mis-matched 1GB and a 2GB pair). Video performance is noticeably better with the ability to actually use the dual-channels.
I have NO problems with either the product I received, nor with Komputerbay as a seller.
I would happily purchase from them again.
Side Note: This memory upgrade was for a circa 2010 Acer Aspire 7741Z-5731 purchased at WM for sub-$500.
Replaced the P-6000 with a i5-560M (after watching a teardown on YouTube) and breathed new life into an aging laptop. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Possibly bad modules Review by rockee712
Rating
I purchased this ram to use on my Late 2011 21.5" iMac, adding to the 2 slots I had open, this brought my total ram to 12gb.
Upon installing this ram I began experiencing consistent and unexplainable system/program crashes. I have not updated or done anything to the operating system since installing this RAM. These crashes occur without warning and don't seem to follow any discernible patterns. This lead me to some detective work. Perhaps bad modules? Perhaps bad slots? The tests began...
First I tried Rember. This failed, not in the sense it failed the test, but Rember crashed every time it tried to test the RAM.
So I tried re seating the ram. Perhaps it was my error in installation, although, having worked in electronics retail for many years, I am extremely familiar with installing RAM. Let's be honest, its not hard. This made no changes, still crashing.
Next I swapped the the 2x 4gb with the 2x 2gb I already had to see if I had bad slots. Still the same problem and actually the crashes increased in frequency.
I then isolated the new RAM by taking out the older 2x 2gb. The iMac barely starts up. This leads me to believe that a) I have bad ram or b) this ram is not iMac 2011 compatible, which would be inconsistent with some of the other reviews I have read before purchasing.
Obviously I am very disappointed. Honestly, I am not surprised because I already knew how finicky Macs are with RAM and that brands play a large role in what you can expect to work. Instead of going with Crucial, which I know is a lot more reliable on Mac platforms, I tried to save ten bucks with this brand. This was my error. Returning the RAM and going to pony up the 10-15$ to get the stuff that will work.
Edit 12/25/2013: Installed the new memory from Crucial and it has worked without any problems for the last 10-12 hours. Programs seem to be a little more snappy and less load times on photo editing work. I still highly do not recommend this Komputerbay RAM for iMac 2011 21.5" ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

I installed this in my wife's 2 1/2 year old Dell Inspiron 17R (N7110). It matches the specs. It works. It tests out flawlessly.

Caused my 2010 27" iMac to Keep Crashing Review by Ronald C. Oden Jr.
Rating
I bought 16GB of ram from Komputerbay for my late 2011 MacBook Pro and it works flawlessly. I thought, what the heck, I'll upgrade my iMac, and all will be swell. Almost immediately my iMac began crashing. I ran a memory test and the ram passed, so I thought, maybe I did not do a good job installing the ram. I reinstalled and continued to have crashes. I went to the Crucial web site and ordered their 16GB ram for my iMac and I installed that, hoping the issue was not my iMac. It turns out it is NOT my iMac, it is the ram from Komputerbay. I'm not sure how to return stuff to Amazon (I've never had to do it) but this ram from Komputerbay will not play nicely with my iMac. Too bad ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
Great performance bump for my 2011 iMac Review by noisycats
Rating
I figured I would take a chance on this brand, knowing that Amazon's return policy is first rate. It has been about 3 weeks and I have experienced nothing but glistening speed on my iMac. No instability whatsoever and with a significant savings over more main-brand offerings. I've attempted to stress the processor and RAM with max usage of my apps and the results have been perfect.
I do have to admit, your mileage may vary. I was not so lucky with Komputerbay 16GB (2x 8Gb) which I will review at a later time but I can give this 8GB kit a huge thumbs up. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)

This product is everything that the description says and has lived up to. i doubled my speed in my late 2011 macbook pro and have had no issues at all. i simply bought a tool kit for the screwdriver and needed and popped the old ones out and installed these and absolutely no issues. i highly recommend this product. anyone interested i suggest you give it a shot because it has been flawless for me. ***This review was posted on: http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B0031GK3OI*** (Posted on 05/06/2014)
