Rating: 4/5 Good machine but some trouble with Big Sur September 15, 2021 It seems that the installers for some software don't work too well with Big Sur, and sometimes the machine is slow.

Reviewer: HilariousCheetah-1408
Rating: 5/5 Great computer, great price September 8, 2021 This was top of the line in 2014. Old, yes, but still very capable and upgradable to Monterey. I have been using it for about a month now and have had no problems with it hardware-wise. I intend to squeeze a few more years out of it until moving to the Apple silicon Mini version.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from Apple Mac mini (2014) 3GHz Dual Core i7 - Used, Excellent condition.

Response from OWC, Support September 9, 2021 Amazing idea! We cannot agree more with your plan and hope the 2014 serves well until the Mchips are really ready to rock out! Look forward to see you again soon!

Reviewer: ShyBird-46120
Rating: 4/5 A little elbow grease to Catalina, great buy. September 6, 2021 Be sure to also buy a Thunderbolt 2 cable from OWC. Also DO NOT format the SSD as AFP (at first), let the Catalina installer “convert” it. Then plug in your old Mac (mine was an i5 2012), migration took just over an hour instead of 8x as long.

Downside of this Mac is Tim Cook made them *much* harder to get into plus soldered RAM, so consider maxing out what you need.

For an i7 this rig runs cooler than I thought it would.

Rating: 5/5 Exactly what I was looking for July 3, 2020 I was shopping for a 2014 Mac Mini to use as a high-resolution music server. I prefer the upgradabilty of this older platform.
