upgrading macbook pro ram

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
the price on 4gb ram upgrade on the apple website is outrageous. So i've been looking around for 2x2gb modules and have come up with a few alot cheaper than 750.

But which is best brand. and can MBPs do PC2 5400?

I was looking at Corsair, mushken or Kingston

    I've used Corsair memory with alot of success. I have 6.5gb in my G5, 4 of which is Corsair Dual channel. The rest is Samsung.

    I have had two of the 2GB samsung chip in my MBP for a while now and love them (http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memor...ook/Pro/Core2/ ). By love them I mean I haven't had a problem;

    Does anybody buy their RAM from apple? It seems that it is extremely overpriced. I recently bought a 2.2 MBP and am looking to upgrade to 4GB RAM. I can definently swing the 240$ for the SAMSUNG but their is no way I can afford the Apple product.
