    I'd personally spend the extra on the Crucial memory as I'd feel more confident it would have fewer issues.

    I’ll also echo this to be fair. Better warranty support also

    I ended up getting the Crucial on Amazon. Also noticed it was cheaper to buy 2 8gb sticks separate than the 16gb kit (2x8gb). It’s like a $5 savings which covers the sales tax...

    EDIT: Installed the RAM today, took like 25 minutes, would've took 15 but one of the fan screws fell off the screwdriver and had to take the thing apart to get it. But it was the easiest thing I ever did, was shocked at how easy, not user-accessible my ---. And it seems a lot quicker and snappier with 16GB over 8GB.

    Just make sure you keep the original sticks, if you eventually need the apple support.
