Reviewer: sarahcatt-90539
Rating: 5/5 Quick service and excellent Mac Mini February 18, 2024 As is typical with OWC/Mac Sales, service was super fast and the product was exactly as advertised. I upgraded the os to MacOS 12 and put it into service as a dedicated video teleconference server, utilizing our TV as monitor and a Logitech web cam for video. I have an Apple TV connected to the same TV, but trying to rig up my iPhone as a video input device is a pain. I spent less than $200 on a good used MinI, webcam and wall mount for the mini. I previously tried ‘fanless’ micro PCs, but they were slow and, unfortunately, PCs running Windows 10.

Rating: 5/5 OWC/MacSales.com January 26, 2024 Never had a bad experience. Always friendly helpful on phone advice from person speaking perfect English. Products are accurately described and arrive in the condition stated. Bought 2 used Mac Mini's in the past 3 years for around 100 bucks each to be used to stream music and video from synology server. Both arrived in excellent condition and with the latest software for their vintage. Bought the second one because the original would not handle 4k and had another use for the first one. Highly recommended company. Too bad they are Mac only.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect for my Young kid... December 20, 2023 Arrived earlier than I had thought. Well packed and in very good condition. After the obligatory setup and updates performed well for my 7-year-olds. They fight over the base M1 Mac mini I got a while ago. I know it's not the same class of Mac, but for their use case its perfect. and for under 100$ unbeatable...

Rating: 5/5 Great Service! December 18, 2023 I got this Mac Mini and immediately started to upgrade the OS. Unfortunately it wouldn't upgrade to Monterey because of a firmware issue. I contacted support and they had me ship it back (they provided shipping). Once received - they fixed the issue and sent it right back, All is well now - I've got it upgraded to Monterey! Great Service! P.S. Not the first time I've gotten equipment from OWC - they have been great each and every time.

Rating: 5/5 Great Value October 25, 2023 Great value. Mac Mini arrived rapidly, product description was spot on, great condition, almost like new. Set up was easy and it works great. I would definitely consider OWC first when buying Apple products. I've been using iPad and iOS Garageband for music production as a hobby but wanted to migrate to a Mac OS due to limitation of the iOS platform but couldn't justify buying new. But this fit right in my budget. Planning on now migrating from Garageband to Logic Pro in the near future

Rating: 5/5 Better Than Expected August 21, 2023 I have bought parts from OWC in the past and have always been blown away by their service and value. I normally do not buy used equipment but decided to take a chance and OWC knocked it out of the park. Not only did the mac mini work exactly as it should it was in better condition than OWC's rating system stated. I cannot find a physical flaw on the mac.
