Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Pac Pal, CA Age: Over 65 Experience Level: IT Professional Owned Product: over 6 months
Rating: 5/5 I do trust these people, esp. after this. January 30, 2015 I sent my 2006 MacBook to OWC IL from here in CA in 2010 so they could replace my failing optical drive. In all respects the experience was superb - service, elapsed time, product durability. This is one vendor who's earned my business as long as I own Macs. Tom, Pacific Palisades CA

I would recommend this item to a friend!
