I gave up on the 16GB upgrade as many here have also done. I did notice a BIG bump in performance going from 4GB to 8GB. I guess doubling the amount of RAM is still better than nothing at all.
I used this RAM kit for my mid 2010 Macbook Pro: Crucial 8GB Kit
You can read through the reviews to match up other Macbook years/models compatible with this memory. I believe 2009 and other years may also be compatible.
Thanks eveyone for your feedback in this thread. It saved me a lot of time and headaches!

I had Crucial 8GB in my MacBook Pro (13", Mid 2010) and 4GB in my son's MacBook (13", white, late 2009 I believe).
I moved the Crucial 8GB Sodimms to the MacBook (it runs happily with 8GB now ) and installed Mushkin 997019 (2 x 8GB) to my MBP (13", Mid 2010) and it runs perfectly too. That particular SODIMM is discontiuned and is no longer available on the Mushkin's website. I bought it from here last week.

Hey thanks for the info!
Couple months ago I bought a kit of ram from eBay and those didn't work for my macbook pro mid-2010 13" 2.4ghz
I didn't want to try OWC because of the higher price.
But I might give it a try to the Mushkin 997019
But before I do that... Did you notice any improvements more than just placebo effect? I mean, is it worth the upgrade from 8gb to 16gb in performance/cost terms?

I did not notice much improvements over 8Gb when running applications with low-ram footprint. However, it runs much better with apps such as Vmware Fusion with Windows or other apps that use a lot of Ram. Since my mbp runs on an SSD, the amount of RAM might have a smaller effect. Btw, i purchased 16gb at around $120 before the price hike due to a fire in SK Hynix.

I've already installed Mavericks on my MBP mid-2010 Core 2 Duo and plan to order 16GB kit from Mr.Memory in the UK. It's around £154 with delivery. EFI is updated.
I need bigger memory for audio software processing.
Anyone has tried it yet?

I've got a 17" mid-2010 Macboook Pro (model identifier is MacBookPro6,1) with Mavericks installed and I tried putting in two 8GB sticks that I had from another system.
I got a kernel panic while booting.
The specs on the memory I used are here:
Anyone else have any luck?

HI guys. Just to share my experience. I bought this
And I tried in my Macbook Pro 15" mid 2010 (model 6,2) with no luck. The system boots, but after some minutes it gets kernel panic. Using Maverick.

Of course you have a kernel panic, you can not use memory with default speed of 1600MHz on a stocket 1066MHz.
In a normal PC perhaps is possible to adjust the speed automatically, but not a mac.
For your macbook pro 6.2 only works DDR3 1066MHz.
