Rating: 5/5 Great Machine for Pro Tools August 29, 2018 Got this as a dedicated Pro Tools machine. I love the construction and the fan is whisper quiet. Perfect for recording situations.

Rating: 5/5 How can you go wrong? May 30, 2018 Arrived in the mint condition as advertised. If you are holding out for the next generation of Mac Pros, don't hold your breath. Those will be delayed to post 2018. This machine is a beast! Up close the fan is barely audible, and inaudible 3 feet away. More than adequate for Photoshop and other heavy lifting processing chores. Near instantaneous response with most apps. You will get spoiled pretty quickly. I saved a fortune on this machine. No regrets!

Rating: 5/5 Mint means mint May 20, 2018 I could only tell this had been used previously by the fact the cylinder wasn't covered with Apple shrink wrap. This rig replaced my aging Mid-2010 MacBook Pro, which even with maxed out RAM and an SSD couldn't quite keep up with High Sierra and demanding apps like Xcode. I love how I can get a beefed up rig from OWC for less than the price of a brand new one with inferior specs from Apple. The 10 core is in the Goldilocks zone for single core vs. multicore performance.

Reviewer: MagicMatt Experience Level: Power User
Rating: 5/5 Really like new April 19, 2018 Was refurbished by OWC and described as mint, which it truly was. I really can’t tell if this Mac was actually used or not as it looks and feels brand new. Even had that typical new Mac smell out of the box.

My only issue has been all the USB ports are finicky. They won’t seem to mount USB drives unless they were plugged in before boot up, so I guess hot swapping drives is not gonna happen. Not a big enough problem to send it back as I can live with the finicky USB but everything else has been flawless.

Rating: 5/5 Awesome system for a great price December 10, 2017 Just finished setting up this bad boy and could not be happier. Excellent value for a Mac Pro. Tired of waiting for Apple to come out with a new Pro so I decided to buy one from OWC.

My only issue setting it up was that I use lots of external hard drives. I didn't realize that with High Sierra, I would need to change the drives to APFS. This has been an issue and took me a few days to figure out. I couldn't save files to these drives until I did. One drive (out of four) is still not working right and I'm waiting for more Apple updates to fix these issues.

The Mac Pro rocks and is so fast that I find myself smiling all the time.
