    So I am finally thinking of upgrading my mid-2009 MBP to 8GB RAM...while I have read that it's probably not smart to install the DDR3 1333 (mine has the DDR3 1066/67), I still am left with the dilemma of what brand?

    I have narrowed it down to the 3 types from newegg.com, wondering if any of you have tried these brands, and what kind of experiences you have had with them, and what you think is the best out of the three.

    to be honest go with the cheapest one, all the ones listed are good ram makers.

    I generally stick with Crucial for the service. With that said, it is a few large companies that make the actual RAM itself, and so, in many cases, a different brand is actually coming from the same maker as another. In this case, given the Crucial is the cheapest, then I would say Crucial all the way.

    Purchase from a place you feel you will have good resource if you occur any problems. Brand doesn't matter all that much.
