Now back in stock original item in question G.SKILL 1600Mhz - ($79.99) and for same money (with $20 promo) also G.SKILL 1333Mhz for Apple , Model FA-1333C9D-16GSQ.
On top of that Patriot Mac Series Apple SODIMM Kit 16 Single DDR3 1333 PC3 10600 204-Pin SO-DIMM PSA316G1333SK even for couple bucks less (after PM)
Any preference between these? what should I get?

We need one huge memory topic so people can just post and reply as to which they've had success with and which they haven't.

I have been running a pair of corsair 8gb ram sticks in my mid-2011 mini for a week, and so far they work fine. at the same time, i installed a vertex 4 256gb ssd. i timed my boot time this morning at 14 seconds.

go for it.

sorry about all lower case, my right arm is in a cast so one handed typing makes holding shift difficult ;-]]

Likewise 2 x 8GB Corsair for the past 6 months and 256GB Sandisk Extreme. Runs like a scalded cat.
