Rating: 5/5 Works great in my 2008 imac March 25, 2018 This memory upgrade was a good match with the SSD I had previously installed. I was impressed with the service from OWC over shipping delay to Canada, which turned out not to be a problem in the end. Have been using the memory card for several weeks now without any issues , very stable. Most noticeable when having multiple tabs open in browser. Previously the computer would bog down or get close to it. Now there memory to spare and more speed. Also boots faster, loads apps faster.

Rating: 5/5 Upgraded my 2008 iMac to 6GB January 29, 2018 Despite all the misinformation stating a limit of 4gb ram, I was able to upgrade my early 2008 iMac to 6gb. Thank your the product, iMac performs as advertised. I also replaced my 320Gb hard drive with a 1 TB SSD drive, my iMac is a new speed demon which should last another 10 years. Thank you for a great quality product and service.

So I changed the 2GB with 4GB RAM and now iMovie works flawless. This iMac is still a good computer after 10 years with the new memory upgrade ;-)

Rating: 5/5 OWC to the rescue! September 13, 2017 I don't think I've ever had a bad experience with OWC. My mother's old iMac had become slow as sh...ugar. It had a total of 1GB of memory. After swapping out (a super easy 3 minute procedure) the two 512MB (1GB total) memory sticks for two 2GB (4GB total) sticks, the computer is now running smooth and fast. I went with 4GB instead of 8GB because the performance increase would have been negligible, especially when compared to the price difference. How do I know this? Because OWC has benchmark performance results for all different memory upgrades for all Mac models on their site. Kudos, OWC.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent August 22, 2017 I always order memory for my computers both at home and at work. I have ordered in the past from other large companies and even though the price may be nearly as good as at MacSales, the items don't come with the fabulous warranty that you get from MacSales. Just because this vendor caters to Mac does not mean that the memory won't work in, PC.

Rating: 5/5 New Life for an Old iMac June 6, 2017 My wife's Early 2008 iMac was running like a slug after updating to El Capitan. I discovered online that, in spite of the info at Apple that says the max RAM is 4GB, this iMac will actually accept 6GB. There was a noticeable speed improvement after I swapped in the new RAM from MacSales. Now I just need to save my nickels to get a SSD for her...

Rating: 5/5 Memory for Macs May 8, 2017 I have purchased memory for many, many Macs over the years. MacSales are the ones I love to work with because their documentation and customer service is exceptional. I was a tech for years, but software. Their document instructions are so simple anyone can change out memory and hard drives. Thank you for being there for us laymen who have stepped out of their box and learned to put in memory, etc. I have NEVER had a problem with memory, except one time (many years ago) the computer kept locking up after installing. They shipped me memory right away to replace the faulty. Thank you!

Rating: 5/5 Rock Solid Performance January 28, 2017 I purchased this memory for an older mac years ago and it has increased system performance since the day I installed it. Easy to install - my mac is old enough to still have an access panel for the memory :) Has not given us any trouble over the years and will probably be working great when we no longer have use for the old mac. But for today, and the foreseeable future - all systems GO.

Rating: 5/5 A smart choice January 10, 2017 I would say a great investment to breathe new life into an old iMac. I have had this iMac since its release, and since then have used it less and less. Since my newer MacBook has died, I have made the return to working on my old 2008 iMac. Of course it's pricey, but I wish I have made this upgrade sooner. The start time has doubled, and my iMac is maxed out. Now the next step is an ssd. Recommend this upgrade for anyone, who thinks their iMac has no future.

Rating: 4/5 Good product, even better service. December 12, 2016 I am pleased with the 4GB RAM stick I purchased. It worked perfectly upon installation. It did take a little longer to arrive than I initially expected, but part of that may have been due to living in South Korea and it being somewhat close to Christmas time. Most importantly, the customer service personnel stuck by me through all the hiccups in arranging for payment so that I could make sure I got the item I wanted. Clearly one 4GB sale is not a large buy, but I was pleased by the very personal and understanding level of assistance I received and would definitely buy future products if the need arises. Thank you for all of your assistance.
