Rating: 5/5 Great Product and Great Service! September 10, 2018 I bought 16GB upgrade memory for my mid 2012 13 inch MacBook Pro. My computer was extremely slow, and very frustrating to use. After the easy self-install, my computer works better than new! The ordering process was easy, the product came within days, and the installation videos on the website were great! After my installation, my computer was only recognizing 8GB of memory, but after a call to tech support, I was walked through the easy fix! I couldn't be happier!

Rating: 5/5 Worked September 4, 2018 Mac never advertised that these would work until long after the laptop came out and new operating system software came through. I appreciate that these were also pre-tested and confirmed to work on the same model of Mac. It wasn’t guess work buying and hoping it works.

Reviewer: SmartPenwin Location: Mexico
Rating: 5/5 Great upgrade for an aging iMac July 16, 2018 Bought the upgrade as from time to time large excel sheets did hurt my 2012 iMac performance. This still a very good computer, and even when not retina I love the display. So I reviewed that memory was reason behind slowdowns. $150 was a very good deal even paying the local tax and import (I'm in Mexico) so went for it and have to tell I am very happy with the difference. iMac is snappy again even when 2 or 3 large excel sheets (over 32k rows) Great product at very good price point.

Rating: 5/5 More Ram For Older iMac June 24, 2018 When I upgraded to High Sierra I needed more Ram in my wife's 2011 iMac. I ordered on line and received the memory in qick time. I looked at the videos on utube and installation only took a few moments. The computer fired right up and recognized the new ram. Great job and far cheaper that a new computer. We are good until the next upgrade by Apple.

Rating: 5/5 I hate myself for not buying this sooner!! June 18, 2018 My Macbook Pro Mid 2012 is SO much more responsive since I installed this 2 x 4gb RAM kit. I can't believe I sat looking at that dumb spinning beachball icon for SO long.... it's been 5 years... ew... BEST NEWS: I haven't seen it since installing the new RAM :)

OWC - thank you for a well packaged item, quick delivery time and an extremely competitively priced product that works GREAT.

Rating: 5/5 Easy to Install and Works Great! June 18, 2018 This was really easy to install — so easy, in fact, that I didn't even use the directions.

The upgrade gave my poor old little Mac Mini a significant performance boost for very little cost. (I went from 4GB to 16GB.)

There were no issues with the product whatsoever, and worked out of the package.

I would recommend this product to anyone in a similar situation as me, where you are suffering performance issues, but don't really want to buy a new system.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect Solution for my iMac! June 4, 2018 This site came highly recommended and I can see why. The RAM chips were the perfect solution and were a no brainer to install. Other providers seemed to have issues.

The communication here was excellent, the shipment arrived sooner than expected and the follow up was on point.

I will not hesitate to purchase from OWC in the future!
