Rating: 4/5 Quick and Awesome January 25, 2017 The kit was deliver very fast and I was working on updating my memory on my iMac in no-time. I'm glad a place like this exist. I saved over $100.00 with MacSales. I'm also glad that there is a tutorial video for switching the memory on the computer. The only detail about all this is that, now, after switching the memory in my computer, I do not know what to do with this kit... I don't think I will open the computer again, that was a big challenge. What about the old memory? Somebody wants it? I don't know. Anyway, other than those two details, the product, delivery and reliability of MacSales beat all the expectations.

Rating: 4/5 Excellent kit for iMac repair May 20, 2015 I bought this to replace a hard drive in an iMac. Pros: has all the special Torx wrenches, plus very useful tweezers and forceps. The suction cups worked perfectly to remove the screen glass. Only the spungers seemed a bit too thick to fit between some of the connectors, so weren't very useful.

Rating: 5/5 Needed tool kit for Late 2006 iMac 24" install. April 10, 2015 I used this tool kit to install a new 2.0TB Toshiba (by Hitachi) 7200RPM SATA 3.0 6Gb/s HDD with 64MB Cache hard drive in a iMac 24" late 2006 model with OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard) operating system. It was my first time ever to install a hard drive! I learned by watching a few "how to" videos on U-tube. I used several of the screw divers in the kit, the tape, and soft mat.

Rating: 5/5 Get this toolkit. February 5, 2015 The hard drive on my wife's iMac (2007) crashed. I went to the OWC website and ordered a replacement drive. After looking at the OWC video on how to replace a hard drive in an iMac, I decided it was something I could do. That would save some money taking it to the Apple Store for repair. The video recommended the "OWC General Servicing Kit for Apple iMac 2007 and later Models." It has everything you need to get the job done. My dad always told me that having the right tools made the difference between an easy and a difficult job. He was right and this toolkit was exactly what I needed. I watched the OWC video as I took the iMac apart, cleaned it, replaced the hard drive, and reassembled it. The video was incredibly helpful and the toolkit made the job easy. Get this toolkit. It is well worth the money.
