  • I agree with Craig, I’ve been buying from OWC since my beige G3 desktop. You guys and gals are the best!

  • I have been an admirer of OWC and have referred many to you over the past several years. I have found OWC to be prompt in their delivery of items I have purchased online. Packed by caring hands and every detail given attention so that I have had NO complaints concerning anything! OWC is the only one for me!

  • Larry, congratulations! Finally, someone I voted for won! You have been my one and only Mac guru for years and I am so thrilled you were recognized as such. If there really were a Mac Genius, it would be you. I look forward to many years of fine customer service, great prices and cutting edge products from OWC. Thanks for everything!

  • I was happy to have discovered OWC in the mid-’90s and made them the preferred peripherals vendor for the Mac-driven advertising agency for whom I served as vice president operations. Their superior customer service, knowledgeable and reliable technical support and very aggressive pricing strategies rewarded my decision with every order. Now as executive producer for a film production company, We continue to rely on OWC to help keep our Macs beefed up and productive. Frankly, if OWC were NOT voted’s Best Mac Peripherals Reseller – or the winner of any other Best list, I’d be alarmed. They’ve been the best supplier for us for nearly 20 years.

  • I just received my first order from OWC. The customer service advice I got on the phone steered me to the exact right RAM purchase for my new MAC Pro. I would not have known what to order without Ben’s help! My order came in record time in an absolutely beautiful package. It was a shiny blue bubble pack (which I shall keep to put stuff in) and big safety no-tamper label. Inside the memory sticks were protected in a box worthy of a jeweler, along with a proper packing list and a helpful color promo card showing other products I am definitely interested in. This is how business ought to be done!
