Rating: 5/5 My Grandmother could install these! November 30, 2016 Memory modules were easy to install thanks to your very helpful video. This has upgraded performance of my old MacBook substantially. The SSD was sightly more complicated, but still very easy, The video covers everything you need to know. There's literally no technical knowledge required -- emphasis on "no." Yes, you need a fine Phillips screwdriver and a small Torx screwdriver, but these are easily available at any hardware or crafts store, or OWC will sell them to you. I should have done this years ago!

Rating: 5/5 slam dunk for ancient iMac November 27, 2016 A small investment in my far too old iMac that I need to squeeze a little more life out of. Great price, fast shipping, quick install for noticeable increase in performance. Win all around.

Rating: 5/5 Great product and great service. October 23, 2016 OWC supplied me with an upgrade RAM package for my older iMac. As I am in South Australia(next stop Antarctica). I had to wait a while for the package to arrive. But, installing the modules was dead easy and the iMac immediately showed the benefits of the extra RAM. Several weeks later, everything is fine with the iMac and I am very pleased indeed.

Reviewer: Anonymous Location: New York, NY Experience Level: Hobbiest Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Fantastic April 10, 2016 Because of the limitations of the new imacs, I decided to update my buggy 2008 imac running 10.6.8 to 4GB RAM to see what difference it would make. Its startling. Imac runs twice as fast and is gremlin free. Switching memory wasn't quite so simple for this novice because the memory didn't just snap out, but one really has to pull very, very hard-- hard enough to make me wonder if I would break something, but so what... Once out however the new memory just slipped. I closed up, plugged the imac back in, turned it on and took a deep breath. The result was much more than expected.

Rating: 5/5 Great upgrade for my MAC!! December 13, 2015 Memory arrived well packaged and quickly after ordered. Easy to install and I immediately saw an increase in speed. Really woke up my 7 year old MAC. I am running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. The only negative is I waited too long too do the memory upgrade! Thanks to OWC for a good product and great experience!! I have saved OWC in my bookmarks and will definitely use you again for my MAC needs! Thanks again!

Rating: 5/5 Simple Upgrade Brings Big Improvement September 23, 2015 This memory upgrade was made to a base MacBook 5,2. The extra memory let me upgrade the Leopard OS to Snow Leopard and then straight to Yosemite. Coupled with a 120 GB SSD replacement for the standard 5400 rpm 120GB Hitachi drive, my 2009 MacBook performs like a brand new machine. The installation was a piece of cake. All I needed was a nickel to open the battery compartment and a small Phillips head screw driver to remove a bracket.

Rating: 5/5 Works as advertised! September 3, 2015 The problem with writing a review 6 years later is it's hard to remember what the product was used for. However, I'm almost 100% certain this went into (hold your breath) my Lenovo laptop, which also takes the same RAM that my Macs do. I've never had any problems with it, and it performs as advertised.
