Reviewer: Aloha Location: Honolulu. HI. Age: 55-65 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 4/5 It works! October 25, 2016 Bought a 2007 lower priced unit and it would shut down. Ran some diagnostics and it would have taken a deeper look than I wanted to do and possibly void any warranty. I was disappointed for sure but, OWC was great for the return process. Got this unit as a replacement and it's still going after two months. Make sure you keep the original shipping box, you'll need it for a proper return and run your unit continuously to hopefully reveal any problems before the warranty period ends i.e. don't keep it in the box and wait to set it up.

Reviewer: Bgibson Age: 35-44 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: less than a month
Rating: 5/5 First Mac September 29, 2016 The item came as described and was shipped quickly as well. The tower had a few minor scratches on it but it doesn't affect the Mac at all. Even the inside of the Mac was extremely clean. I've had the Mac running all day long since I received it on Tuesday. I already upgraded the CPU from a quad core 2.66 single CPU to a 3.33 hex core and this bad boy running smooth. I wasn't a little afraid that I didn't put the thermal paste on good enough but I haven't had any problems at all. I will definitely be ordering from here again and also plan on purchasing an SSD soon. Thanks guys!

Rating: 5/5 Great Value June 29, 2015 This was a great value and works "like new." I was able to transfer my hard drives from my original dual-core duo MacPro to this quad-core model (which is upgradeable to Yosemite) with only minor issues. I am now able to access iCloud and run newer Mac software.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
