    Great Deal from TransInt'l

    It's a bit of a late response for the OP, but hopefully others may benefit.

    Transintl offers 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 12800 RAM modules for $79 + $8 s&h here.

    The lowest price I've seen on NewEgg is $115 w/ free shipping.
    As a reference, OWC charges something like ~$150 for their Mid-2012 MacBook Pro kit.

    Sure. But it seems that a lot of people are happy with it as well. If you need to save some cash, I don't think buying the set and replacing it until you get a good one is that big of a hassle, especially for how inexpensive they are.

    What voltage and latency are best when upgrading a cMBP to 16gb? What brands are most reliable?

    - That depends on which model MacBook Pro you have. In general, the lower the voltage and the lower the latency, the better.
    I like Corsair, but any major brand should be fine.
