Has anyone tried using this brand before? And if so, any feedback? I am between getting this, or the 8gb kit from crucial, so i am kind of stuck on what to do.

Because you don't list the model, so we don't know. But keep in mind you will need the MAC memory for your Macbook, you can't buy the PC memory for the apple computer.

Also you can use the Crucial Advisor tool to find your memory too. http://www.crucial.com/

You mean the model for the device? It's a Macbook Pro 7.1. Intel Core 2 duo 2.4 ghz...
The ram is made for Mac, and says that it's compatible with my model... but i am not sure about the brand.. some mixed reviews on Amazon... i mean.. 4.5 stars, yes.. but the people that put low rating list some really worrying defects..

Oh no, i know the brand.. it's Timetec.... that's what it's called.. this is their website:
https://www.timetecinc.com/

I just wanted to know if anyone heard of it.. or if there is any feedback about it.. all i found so far was people saying if they're using Hynix chips then it should be fine.. how accurate is that?

Yes, they use Hynix brand, and other OEM companies also use the same chip too. But I can't find the reviews for timetec RAM.

Sorry, you need to make your own decision.
