Rating: 5/5 Very pleased with my purchase August 14, 2015 My order arrived promptly, was very well packaged, so no problems whatsoever other than the challenge of unpacking. The MacPro looks brand new to me. No scratches, blemishes, or other defects that I can find. Was upgrading from a first generation MacPro so had hoped that I could just swap hard drives, but that proved not to be the case, so I had to do a migration. Good news is that all data, apps, and settings seem to have transferred without a hitch. One item was not as advertised. The description was with a 640Gb drive. Mine arrived with a 1.0Tb drive instead. I'm certainly not complaining there.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 An Amazing Price for Such a Great Product! March 31, 2015 I have ordered pre-owned and refurbished Macs for many years from many different retailers and this has been the best so far. I am glad that OWC has decided to sell used Macs as they are a reliable company with fast shipping. I was on the verge of purchasing a new late 2013 Mac Pro, but decided to save a lot of money and try purchasing this 2009 Mac Pro from OWC that I could upgrade. What a great choice! Upgraded the firmware, loaded OSX Yosemite and threw in a stock GTX 760 along with more memory and it's running better than I could have hoped. Wonderful machine for the price, even without the upgrades and it looked almost new even though the site said it was in "Good" condition and not in "Very Good" condition. It was a pleasant surprise to have the case look as good as it does and be considered only "Good" condition. Thank you OWC!

I would recommend this item to a friend!
