That being said, tool failure and/or missing equipment can certainly slow the process down.
First failure occurred when one of the suction cups failed. No matter what I did, the cup would eventually fall off. As I was transporting the 27" iMac glass to the old iMac box, the cup failed and I wound up carrying the glass with one cup. I am just thankful the second cup didn't fail.
Second issue was missing tools. In the video, it stated that the kit included tweezers to facillitate the removal of the 8 panel screws. There were no tweezers included. You also need a Torx T-6 driver to remove the Airport card. The T-6 was not included. Luckily, I had a kit with every type of small Torx driver you could imagine. But most people would not and they would need to run to the local Radio Shack in order to remove the Torx screw (or use a very small screwdriver which could lead to damage to the computer).
Overall, despite these issues, I am quite satisfied with the product. It was worth the time and trouble! The video is thorough and clear. I highly recommend this and any other product from OWC. This is my third upgrade purchase from OWC and I know it won't be my last!I would recommend this item to a friend!
Along with the helpful installation video to reference back to, the upgrade was seamless and straight forward. If you've got some technical skills and want to save yourself a bucket load of money and end up with a super fast machine, this kit is well worth every cent you pay for it.
Highly, highly recommend purchasing this kit!I would recommend this item to a friend!
Please note that the only 'consumables' in this kit are the double sided adhesive pads and the special SATA cable. Everything else is reusable if you need to help someone perform a similar operation or if you just need a set of Torx screwdrivers.
Small tip: have someone help you by holding the LCD when disconnecting/connecting its 4 cables. The rest is somewhat trivial.I would recommend this item to a friend!
