Rating: 5/5Works great!March 21, 2015I expanded my '08 iMac from 4gig to 6 gig and it made a world of difference. I would definitely recommend it for anyone with a similar machine - especially if they are suffering from overall system slowness. I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5FantasticMarch 19, 2015I like OWC. These guys test each and every product they sell pretty thoroughly. They make sure that the RAMs they are selling for a particular version of mac is indeed compatible. I have used their product thrice and every time I have had the best experience. My mac had become pathetically slow and needed a RAM upgrade. Apple's site did not do a good job in telling which particular type of RAM should I buy. OWC, however, had all the necessary details (including how-to video). My machine is working much much faster now and I am enjoying the product very much. I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5Worth EVERY penny - TOP NOTCH ram!March 5, 2015After much research and the temptation to save a few bucks, I decided to go with OWC. First, the customer service was perfect and the shipping...ULTRA fast! Receiving the 6gb ddr2 ram for my iMac 8,1, I gleefully installed the ram expecting a great performance boost. I was not prepared for the speed that my old 2008 machine roared back to life with! The performance is such that I darn near cried with joy! Thank you OWC for an amazing American Made product, and you have gained yet another faithful customer!

Rating: 5/5Works Great, Amazing DeliveryFebruary 19, 2015Ordered this 4GB RAM module about 8:30PM, and my wife texted the next day at Noon to say it had arrived already! Admittedly I'm already in Illinois, but I didn't pay any extra for express shipping, but was amazed at the 16hr door-to-door. Easy installation (I did watch the video, which was all the info needed), and product is working great. Should have done this long ago.

Rating: 5/5Increasing iMac RAM beyond Apple's specsJanuary 29, 2015As usual, OWC provides quality and service beyond the norm. According to Apple the maximum RAM that can be used in my wife's mid-2009 iMac is 4GB. Not true! OWC offers a 4 GB RAM module that allowed me to increase the iMac's memory to 6GB (2GB + 4GB). As far as I can determine no one else offers this upgrade.
Upgrading the iMac's RAM is easy to do. I took me all of ten minutes (I move slowly) and the installation went without a hitch.

Rating: 5/5No sweatJanuary 15, 2015My experience with OWC can be summed up in two words, No Sweat. First I checked the website for availability of the additional memory that I thought my computer needed and found out that not only did they have it but that I could add more than I thought because OWC had the Apple stats that applied to my iMac. I bought the memory at at a most reasonable price, free shipping and OWC included very helpful instructions for putting the chips in myself. Done. In 3 days I had my iMac going from slow to insane! Love it! I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5Upgraded iMac from 4GB to 6GB - works greatJanuary 7, 2015I have an early 2008 iMac (3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo) that Apple says can only support 4GB memory. I bought this 4GB module and used it to replace one of the two 2GB modules that my iMac came with. The machine now has a total of 6GB and works great. It has made an incredible difference to the performance of OSX Mavericks and extended the lifetime of the machine significantly. The only drawback is I felt the module is a little on the expensive side. It is worth it, though.

Rating: 5/5Great ExperienceJanuary 5, 2015OWC made it clear which memory to buy for my iMac early 2008 computer. The price was comparable to what I found on Amazon for same specs. The memory came superfast and in excellent packaging (easy to open, well protected). No problems with installation.
Great Experience! I highly recommend OWC for people who want a hassle free computer memory purchase.

Rating: 5/5Upgrade Ram MemoryDecember 19, 2014I'm extremely happy with the service and product operation that OWC had to upgrade my RAM memory. While it has improved the operation of my iMAC, I think I should have gone to 6.0GB instead of 4.0 even if Apple doesn't recommend it. And returning my old memory chips was easy and I was quite welcome with the outcome.

Rating: 5/5It's like having a new computer again.November 23, 2014My old macbook from 2009 was getting pretty slow. I was worried that I would need to buy a new one. Then I discovered how easy it was to upgrade the ram, and started researching how much ram I could add. The official word from Apple was 4 gigabytes, but OWC said differently. Taking my Mac from 2 gigs to 6 gigs made it run like a new computer again. This is easily the best investment I've made in my computer since the initial purchase. I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5Makes OS-X 10.9 Mavericks flyOctober 30, 2014I installed this 4GB RAM module to upgrade my iMac to 6GB, from an original 2x2GB.
Prior to this memory upgrade OS-X 10.9 was very slow and user switching took 30-90 seconds and was always painfully slow. BTW, OS-X 10.7 was very fast on this iMac with no performance issues at all. I tried to speed up the computer by turning off many programs running in the background and even disabled memory compression but all of this had minimal impact upon the sluggish painful performance of my once fast iMac. My only resort was to reboot every time I wanted to use the iMac and then after about 30 minutes of use it was running very slow once again.
I figured I needed to install an SSD (expensive) or more memory but was concerned that I could only max out at 6GB. After installing the 4GB module I now have 6GB of RAM and am shocked at how much faster the iMac is and user switching is now very fast once again. OS-X 10.9 does not work well in only 4GB it needs 6GB or more. Interestingly, when I cold boot into OS-X 10.9 the RAM usage wants to be near 3-4GB even with very few programs running so the OS really wants more than 4GB of RAM.
If you have a slow 2008 iMac with only 4GB then spend the ~$100 and buy the 4GB module it will revitalize your iMac.

Rating: 5/5Fast Service and a Great ProductOctober 17, 2014I recently upgraded the RAM in my Mac. It was running slow due to a software upgrade. Thanks to OWC for the information I found online and the 6.0GB Kit (2.0GB+4.0GB) PC2-6400 DDR2 800MHz SO-DIMM 200 Pin Memory Upgrade Kit. My Mac runs like it's brand-new with ALL the newest software. It was a lot better than buying a new computer. I would recommend this item to a friend!
