    Hey forums! I am looking to add my own RAM as apple's is just outrageously priced!

    I've been shopping around and this RAM seems like the best deal (also considering I have a $20 amazon gift card)

    Does anyone have experience with this brand (good or bad) and if so which one do you think is a better buy?

    Crucial is a very reputable brand. I've had crucial memory in my MBP for 2 years now without a problem.

    I just posted a thread about this and I actually did the same thing and purchased my 8gb of Crucial memory from Amazon since I had a $25 Gift Card as well. Two things to note:

    1.) The shipping is done by Mail Innovations which means its orginally shipped by UPS or Fedex then to a transfer facility where it sits for 5 days or more then USPS decides to take it at which time you are looking at another week or more. I've ordered my memory about 2 1/2 weeks ago and I still have not received the memory!:mad: One good thing is since then the price has been consistantly going down. *You may want to spring for express shipping which you can use from the extra $5 you may recoup see note #2.

    2.) Check J&R Music Site or call Amazon prior to the order and save yourself an extra $5 since the price is $74.99 on J&R Website.

    Just to add another thumbs up for Crucial - I've used them extensively for the last 8 or 9 years and I've never a single problem with them: The memory is top notch, the delivery fast and the prices cheap :)
