Rating: 5/5 Replaced a Mini with a dead logic board November 8, 2017 I bought this to replace a 2011 mini that had a dead logic board. Didn't want a new model because still need FW800. Upside, got upgraded to USB 3 and can put 16GB in it (old maxed at 8). Swapped out the included HD for the SSD in the old drive and was good to go.

Cosmetically, it looks as good or better than the machine it's replacing. Would buy again.

Rating: 5/5 Out of the Box, Into Service and Working Like a Champ July 5, 2017 Bought this to replace an ailing mac mini server. Simple restored from a Time Machine backup and I was up and running. Much more responsive with full compliment of memory. It has been humming along delivering mail and calendar services like a champ.

Rating: 5/5 Great product delivered as promised January 29, 2017 Small footprint with big power (memory & processor) is what I found in this unit at a very competitive price. Ordering and response to questions on O/S configuration were handled swiftly. Two week in use without issue.

Rating: 5/5 Stellar condition "used" mini July 30, 2016 If the condition of this mac Mini I purchased from OWC is "very good," I'd love to see what "excellent" looks like. Good grief!!! Not one single scratch or dent on the aluminum case-- Not a one. Works as expected-- Came upgraded with Yosemite (and I was thinking that I'd have to install it myself).

A word of caution: the only problem I had (which has nothing to do with OWC) is my upgraded wireless Magic mouse 2.0 and keyboard were not recognized because they require El Capitan (not the pre-installed Yosemite to function... I had to purchase a wired mouse to perform the setup tasks).

All in all, I'm overjoyed with my upgrade from my 2009 mini to this 2012. My only wish is that I had gotten the 16GB one, but with OWC I can always opt to upgrade it on my own, if I choose to. For now, I'm beyond content with my purchase, and will continue to use them for my Mac needs. Thanks

FYI: I recommended the miniStack max as a great compliment to the minis that don't come standard with the DVD drive. Great for additional storage/back up purposes

Rating: 5/5 I LOVE THIS MAC MINI!!! June 11, 2016 I am so please with this product. I was going to buy new but then realized I could get more bang for my buck and customize my MacMini more to my liking by putting it together with OWC parts. And evre thing is so well built. MacMinis are more delicate than other Macs and even though I did manage to get every thing the way I want, I think I would rather have OWC put it together next time. I dont mind working on a large Power G5 but like I said the Minis are more delicate. i have shaking hands form arthritis so it was a little nerve wracking but its humming along!
