Rating: 5/5 Resurrected my 2009 iMac March 11, 2018 The internal drive in my 2009 iMac failed - it had done its job well for almost 9 years. After a little thought, replacing the drive with an SSD seemed to be the best option. The kit supplied by OWC was ideal and by carefully following their video instructions I was able to install the new SSD with no drama at all. Prior to installing the drive in the iMac I had connected it to another machine and installed all data and operating system (El Capitan) from a backup. On powering up the iMac for the first time after SSD installation it found the SSD and booted from the system that I had installed. A very rewarding experience.

Booted the SSD up from a Snow Leopard disc and then updated to El Capitan with no issues; the old Mac runs like a champ now!

Rating: 5/5 Went with SSD Drive December 16, 2017 I received my 2 products quickly and installed them right away. The SSD drive was very different in size from the old drives already in my Mac. It came with a mount which the drive screwed into and then the mount and drive together slide into the bay to connect to the computer. Relatively simple process but new for me and it worked without any problems. The drive is quiet and fast and so far has really sped up the computers functioning.

Rating: 5/5 New Life in a 2008 iMac 20" December 10, 2017 Sluggish and trapped behind OS 10.6.8 this iMac was loosing touch with the outside world.

With the video to replace the hard drive and basic skills to attach the SSD to the "Adaptadrive" it was accomplished without complication.

This kit and a RAM upgrade and in no time was ready for new software.10.7.5 was the starting point. 10.11 was where I left off. All seems to be running better than I had hoped for!

Rating: 5/5 New Life for 2007 iMac October 19, 2017 When the hard disk drive failed on our 2007 iMac (that we're using for some limited, but important file sharing tasks) I thought it was the end of this machine. Instead I ordered this SSD, followed the video to install it, and after a bit of an issue, it's like a new machine! Speedy!

I had a problem with my Snow Leopard Disk Utilities, but one call to OWC with a very helpful and patient support representative and my problem was fixed.

So, I highly recommend this product and the support from OWC.

Thanks!

Rating: 5/5 Just the upgrade needed for older I Mac's and Mac Books August 3, 2017 My MacBook and my I Mac are pre 2011, and both were showing there age, particularly my Mac book pro. I decided that I really did not want to invest in new computers and carried out some research on possible upgrades to improve the performance of my existing computers, which is where I discovered OWC. Both machines have now received 480GB SSD's, and the improvement in performance is brilliant! Although I'm a relatively technical individual, I've never tackled any work on computers before, Thanks to OWC's video presentations, the task of replacing the HDD's with SSD's was a "walk in the park"

Rating: 5/5 Great upgrade for older mac July 25, 2017 While waiting for the new Macs to come out I decided to increase my disk space with this solid-state drive. The website led me directly to what I wanted with no ambiguity. Installation was as easy as the videos suggest. The only minor sticking point was how to move all my files over to the new drive, but Disk Utility Restore did the job. Some guidance for that would be useful in the videos. My machine now runs faster and smoother.

Rating: 5/5 SSD drive for 2007 iMac. July 25, 2017 I received my new SSD drive with everything I needed to install it in my iMac. The video instructions were very good and walked me through the process. The only area I had an issue with was unplugging the cable on the back side of the LCD display so I had my wife hold up the display while I swapped out my old 250 GB hard drive for my new 1T SSD. The entire swap took me about an hour but I also went at a very cautious pace.

After the installation the formatting instructions were very helpful. My iMac started right up and has been running like new since. I am very happy with my purchase.

Rating: 4/5 This product performs well after trouble loading OS June 19, 2017 Our organization is a small, under-funded non-profit. I installed this drive in our six 2007 iMac computers, trying to squeeze some more life out of them. Overall, these drives have performed very well with no problems, once installed. The reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is that I could not get OS X 10.11.6 to install on the drive if it was installed in the machine (tried w/3 different drives). The OS would install just fine if the drive was in an external case. Huh??? So we set up an assembly line loading of the OS. After that, the actual installation was a breeze as the drive fits perfectly & was easy to install. In the month since installation we have not experienced any problems with any of the 6 drives.

Rating: 5/5 Early 2009 iMac SSD Upgrade kit February 24, 2017 My decision to purchase and install an SSD drive was a selfish one: my hard drive from 2009 was at the end of it's life and I'm at an age when I know what it means to not address a problem like that sooner than later.

In searching the Google I discovered that MacSales had everything I needed for hardware at a better price then I was finding on Amazon (the place where we all go to do price comparisons). However, the overwhelming reason to go with MacSales for me was the step by step installation video specifically for my version of iMac and the step by step written instructions for imaging and reloading the new SSD to be identical to the original. This is the epitome of one stop shopping.

Plus, if I totally pooched the job, I could get technical assistance from MacSales, something Amazon just didn't offer. Good news: all went well and my iMac is now faster then the day it was born.

Last thought: I ordered the kit online knowing that I had the correct size torx screwdrivers to do the job. I was wrong. I chatted with sales support and they had already processed the order and could not add the required tools to that box, and we both agreed that buying them and paying additional shipping was too expensive (shipping was twice the cost of the tools!). So they gave me the tools at no charge and shipped them for free. Wow. Now that is world class customer service.

Rating: 5/5 Wow, What An Upgrade! November 24, 2016 Our church school received a donation of a 2006 Mac Pro 1,1, the very first Mac Pro made in a huge aluminum case. It hadn't been used in a while but had been nicely maintained. It had 3GB of RAM and 4 hard drives. I do a bit of support work for the school, especially for their Apple products. A little bit of investigation showed that with a bit of hacking of the efi boot file, this computer could be made to run OS X El Capitan. Otherwise it was limited to OS X Lion. But memory had to be increased to at least 12GB and the early Mac Pros' memory modules had to have special heat sinks on them to avoid overheating. MacSales was the best source I found for the required memory and while on their site I was surprised to find out how the price of SSD drives had come down since the last time I looked a year or two ago. So I bought 16GB of memory and a 120GB SSD drive to use as a boot drive and for applications. I applied the efi boot hack I found on the Mac rumors web site and "Bob's your uncle!" I had an old, powerful and upgradeable Mac Pro about to run El Capitan and able to survive updates to El Capitan.

I was stunned at how much faster the computer was after installing the SSD. Using the DIY NewerTech AdaptaDrive made replacing the original rotational boot drive a snap. With memory and SSD prices at an all time low, if you want to do something relatively inexpensive compared to buying a new computer, jazz up your old computer with some additional memory and a SSD. You'll wonder why you waited so long.

Since I made this change on the old Mac Pro, I've added an SSD to my Mac mini server at home and to two Mac minis a the church school. Huge difference in speed of booting up and accessing applications.
