Well you've got nothing to lose. Order it and find out, you can always return it should it not fit the description.

True, but when the model number and price check out to be (2) 4GB sticks, I'd bet my MBP on that is it an informational error and it's (2) 4GB sticks.

Better yet, Chat Amazon and find out. Or, order it then complain and you might win an 8GB stick :p

The title says "dual channel" which implies that it is 2x4GB. The serial number says the same, so it seems that the product description is wrong.

And unfortunately, I bought both of my sticks around the $200 range...

If they were $35 right now, I'd buy 500 to re-sell.
lol ya that amazon listing would of sold out in 2.1 seconds regardless of the quantity available

----------

Yes, but the product description in the link claims that it's a 1x8GB module, which sold for about $200 just a month ago, and only recently became available for less than $100 in some sales.
correct but the other descriptions call in dual channel

Also if you read a comment on there, that person mentions that it is a 4x2 kit and how its misrepresented.

I have that very same RAM in my MBP 15 early 2011. Paid 40 ish after shipping. Good ram
Corsair tends to makes great products, have used their PSU and RAM exclusively in the desktop pcs i've built for years... don't entirely recommend their SSDs though as the firmware is only upgradable in Windows
