    Is this the best memory out there, and recommended for Macbook Pro? Thanks!

    It's the same spec as the stock RAM, and it works, which means it will work as well as the 8GB if you purchased from apple.

    I bought this RAM a couple of days ago before the rebate started... :mad:

    But I am pleased with the upgrade and all is well...

    I'm assuming this would be underclocked for a mid-2010 MBP but still work, correct?

    From the 15" MBP user guide;

    Installing Additional Memory
    Your computer has two memory slots that you access by removing the bottom case. Your MacBook Pro comes with a minimum of 4 gigabytes (GB) of 1333 MHz Double Data Rate (DDR3) Synchronous Dynamic Random-Access Memory (SDRAM) installed. Each memory slot can accept an SDRAM module that meets the following specifications:
     Double Data Rate Small Outline Dual Inline Memory Module (DDR3) format  30 mm (1.18 inches)  204-pin  2GBor4GB
    Â PC3-10600S DDR3 1333 MHz Type RAM
    You can add two 4 GB memory modules for a maximum of 8 GB of memory. For best performance, fill both memory slots and install an identical memory module in each slot.
