I also purchased a keyboard and mouse set which was also a great deal, and a 50Gb drive. I have no issues with any of my purchases. I will be shopping here again for my future Mac needs.

I would also like to thank MacSales for caring about the planet. Thank You for investing the time, money, and effort to save our environment.

Rating: 5/5 Great machine November 13, 2017 I was fearful of getting another refurb to replace the refurb iMac I got from Apple 5 years back but those fears were allied when I got this new 5,1 cheesegrater. Booted right up and is fairly quiet - can hear the fans when the room is quiet but even then they're not all that loud. My cat meows louder than those fans!

It came with Sierra on it and was easy to backdate to Yosemite 10.10.5 because all the audio software I use isn't ready for Sierra.

I really love how I can update things in this machine h/w wise unlike my old iMac. Have several upgrades in the planning like replacing the system drive with an ssd and adding other drives inside.

There are a couple of small scrapes and a small divot in the case but nothing I can't live with. Overall for a machine that has been around since at least 2012 and seen use I can't complain about the quality. When OWC gives an estimate/description of the quality you can trust them on that.

Rating: 5/5 Nice upgrade July 10, 2017 I bought this to replace a 4-core Mac Pro from 2009. I've only had it for a few weeks so far, but it's definitely faster and I'm quite happy with it. I did upgrade it from 8-GB to 48-GB of memory, which probably helps a lot! (especially since I run multiple virtual machines on this Mac). I considered this a much more cost-effective upgrade than buying the most recent models of Mac Pro.

I was a little surprised this is listed as a "Mac Pro (Mid 2010)". I had the impression that there weren't any 3.33 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon Mac Pro's until 2012!

Rating: 5/5 The new Mothership January 19, 2017 My MacPro1,1 was getting long in tooth and beginning to have PMU issues, and I needed that form factor for the expandability and legacy ports, so having ordered many parts from Other World Computing (MacSales) in the past, I ventured into the Refurb area and ordered a Mac Pro 5,1. Though it was the holidays, and processing was due to take 10 days, I received the Mac Pro in only 2! (my living in Chicagoland probably helped). I did notice, to my expectation, that the casing had be “previously loved”, but I wanted what was inside. Installed a 2TB SSD for the boot drive, transferred the three remaining drives and video card from the old machine, hooked the RAID-5 (Elite Pro Qx2 from you guys as well) through eSATA, and it fired right up - OS X 10.12.2 Sierra installed right away and migration was a snap. I was fully operational in 2 hours. Very well done! One further note: I delayed this review as I wanted to give it a workout in the warranty period, so I left it on for 3 weeks running a few things.

Flawless - it’s now my home’s new Mother Ship.

You guys never disappoint.

Rating: 5/5 My second one in three months July 21, 2016 I bought one of these a few months back to replace my wife’s old iMac, but I had so much fun setting it up and using it I decided to keep it for myself. So, I needed to buy another for her ;^)

This one came with an SSD so I didn’t need to add much to make it fly like the other one. She is amazed at the difference in performance from her old 6 GB iMac.

I added a couple of HGST internal disks to replace the two external ones we used for backup: one uses CCC and the other uses Time Machine.

Like the other used Pro I bought, this one was easy to setup (add disks) and very, very fast.

Did I mention the free shipping?

Rating: 5/5 Used Mac Pro = Like new and a real screamer! July 15, 2016 I needed more power than I could get from my maxed out MacBookPro but didn't have the money to spend on a new machine with the power I wanted. The used MacPro I bought a month ago from OWC is an outstanding choice!

I got a quad-core zeon @ 3.2-ghz with 32-gb RAM and a 1-TB SSD. I am running three 27" monitors and my workflow has probably doubled. As a small biz owner I can't begin to put a price on that improvement. Besides the price advantage, I love the expandability of the older 2010-2012 big aluminum case. I added a USB-3 card and a 2-TB SSHD as a second drive.

Although they advertised the computer as "good condition" it looked almost new to me. Runs perfect. And things like rendering a video that used to take a couple hours now flies by in about 10% of the time it took before. In a word... a used MacPro in perfect condition at a fraction of the new price is a huge bargain.

Rating: 5/5 Low Cost Replacement July 11, 2016 When my Mac Pro desktop developed a hardware problem, the simplest solution for me was a used on into which I added the four hard drives, updated video processors and ram from the defective chassis. Being state of the art is not important. The used unit from OWC worked perfectly and the processor was a step better than what I had, so I actually marched ahead a little but within the range of all the software I am using. The unit was in excellent shape cosmetically as well. It got me going quickly and at a low cost. I am glass OWC offered these sorts of deals!

Rating: 5/5 Fast, expandable and lots of fun June 28, 2016 Executive summary - bought to replace wife’s aging iMac, which was limited by its 6 GB memory maximum. Cheaper than a new iMac. With an SSD & 32 MB memory, it is extremely fast and easily expandable. I also had a lot of fun setting it up ;^)

Did I mention the free shipping?

Pros: very, very fast & expandable Cons: 90 day warranty (it’s used) and 3GB SATA

Details:

With the SSD and 32 MB memory, it’s very, very fast.

At the end are the other items I bought to install on the Mac Pro. I have separate reviews for each.

I added two new HDDs to take the place of the external backup drives we now use (one for CCC and one for Time Machine) and a PCI card for attaching the USB3 external offsite backup drive.

The multi-mount let me put the SSD in the lower “CDROM” tray which allowed me to use all four bays for HDDs. I had two other older drives which I am using as a level 1 RAID. SoftRAID is very handy for setting up RAIDs and it lets me “validate” drives beforehand and monitor them afterwards, even if they are not part of a RAID.

Interestingly, a RAID 0 approaches SDD-3G speeds. If you want to use four drives and create two RAID1s, you can combine them into a RAID0 and get both speed and redundancy. I used Black Magic to check the various disk speeds — USB 3 was third behind the SSD and RAID 0.

The Pro also has two ethernet ports, which can act as a “switch” for another device (ethernet port sharing). This was handy when transferring files from the original iMac.

Cosmetically, it looks pretty good — a few rubs on the edges is all.

Conclusions:

The only downside might be the 3GB/s SATA speed limitation. If I was buying this for what Mac Pro users usually buy one, it might not perform at the highest levels. But for an iMac replacement, it’s wonderful.

Here’s what else I bought:

1.0TB Mercury Electra 3G SSD

SoftRAID v5.5 2 x 1.0TB WD Black Hard Disk Drive OWC Multi-Mount - 2.5" to 3.5" and 3.5" to 5.25" bracket set for 2009-2012 Mac Pro. NewerTech MAXPower USB/eSATA 2x2 Host Adapter

Rating: 5/5 No more spinning pizza of death April 9, 2016 This purchase solved a number of problems at once- I was able to stash all my external hard drives inside the tower, add two USB PCIe cards so that I could get rid of my USB hubs, and I was able to add a third monitor in the form of a Wacom Cintiq tablet monitor. The particular Mac Pro I bought came with 32GB RAM, which I'm happy with, and a 1 TB SSD as a boot drive. The only thing it doesn't do that an iMac does without alterations is sound. iMacs have a surprisingly good internal sound system. A Mac Pro has analog sound in and out, USB in and out, and SPIDF digital in and out, but the internal speaker doesn't amount to much. OTOH, anybody who can justify getting one of these either has enough money to cover a sound system, or plenty of old-but-serviceable audio components to do fine. Oh, and it's real fast.
