I have similar problems. With the Crosaire 2x4GB I get BSOD on Windows 7 very quick. With only 1 x 4GB Crosaire it takes longer. I'm not sure if I just got faulty RAM or if Crosaire doesn't work with the MBP 2011?

Memory should come around next week as Im not located in the US. I will run memtest and post my results here.

Yes, it works on the 2011 MBP i5, just be sure to run memtest when you install it and make sure you don't have a defective module.

I just purchased this for my 2011 MBP 13" i5, from other users they say that this crashes. Keeping my fingers crossed. I don't know if I should cancel my other and save myself the headache. Can anyone confirm this works on my model. TIA

Just installed this upgrade in my 2011 15" MBP manufactured in late April, or early May. Running OSX Lion. Ran the memtest. Passed every test. So far it seems stable. No kernel panics. No freezing. Seems to be working well for me.

I'm having the same issue here. Macbook pro 17" 2011 OS X Lion. But I'm trying with just 1 x 4 Gb Corsair and it works fine, no panic so far. Is it possible Lion does not really support 8Gb memory?

So frustrated right now. I bought this for my brother's 13" Aluminum Macbook Pro and it didn't even work. Kept having random kernel panics and I eventually had to swap back in the RAM that came preinstalled. I had the same exact situation Jbone, really pissed off.

I bought it for my 2011 17" MacBook Pro. Big mistake. I got 4 kernel panics in 15 minutes and the RAM was extremely hot. It seems the harder you work the RAM, the quicker it would fail. I fired up HandBrake and was able to crash my machine in less than 10 minutes and by that point it was so unstable that it crashed repeatedly while trying to boot. I put the stock RAM back and my machine is stable again. Anyone had any luck with RAM on this kind of computer?

You should just buy RAM that is for your specific machine, this works on a 2010 MacBook Pro 13" with Core 2 Duo CPU: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001PS9UKW?ie=UTF8&tag=oxd-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001PS9UKW

@pablo Look the Mactracker.app MacBook (Early 2009) 6.0 GB (Actual) 4.0 GB (Apple) You can use 6GB. But you shoult test 2x 4GB. Some MB runs with 8GB.
