Rating: 5/5 Should've added this memory a long time ago October 21, 2016 My 2010 iMac had begun shutting programs down so I added 16 GB of memory in place of the original 4 GB. Now I'm not getting any unexpected shutdowns, my computer starts up much faster. It spends less time opening or closing Music or Photos. Undeniable improvement. OWC's memory selection guidance was invaluable, and installation was straightforward.

Rating: 5/5 MAXed out RAM with OWC! October 16, 2016 2010 iMacs have an easy access RAM door on the bottom of the case, very simple swap out process documented in the instructional video from OWC. I returned the original 8GB RAM to OWC for a small rebate. I bought two sets of this RAM for my 21.5" and a 27" iMac 2010 vintage, both are humming along nicely. With 16GB you can have multiple apps running and spread those windows around on the desktop of these big widescreen iMacs.

Rating: 4/5 So Far Okay... May 16, 2016 I installed the RAM myself as per the instructions. It looks fragile and the part where you have to hear the click after fitting it on the slot, is tricky. But you have to hear the "click" sound. Just apply a reasonable force in fitting it. So far everything is going well with the iMac.

Rating: 5/5 Great price, super fast delivery April 22, 2016 Apple service diagnosed a bad RAM stick, probably installed by the previous owner of my used iMac. Even Apple suggested I buy 3rd party RAM to save money, so for a little more than Apple would have charged for one RAM stick, I jumped to 16 GB with an OWC kit of 4 matched RAM sticks. I've had excellent results with OWC RAM in the past, so I am confident this upgrade will also perform perfectly. Ordering on a Monday afternoon, I had the RAM in my hand 48 hours later via US Postal Service. Thanks to very clear instructional video by OWC, installation was a breeze. The iMac is noticeably quicker and now trouble-free.

Rating: 5/5 Will definitely buy more products from this place! April 18, 2016 Just installed these on my Mid 2011 iMac and it is so much faster. Went from 4GB to 16GB memory. I chose the free shipping that takes up to a week to deliver, but it got here in just a few days! I was worried about possible damage during delivery, but the packaging was very secure. I will definitely be buying more from this website. I'm thinking of upgrading my MacBook Pro now!

Rating: 5/5 OWC RAM sticks trump other brand September 19, 2015 For my mid-2010 iMac, I went through two (2) different sets of RAM sticks purchased from a competitor - and each time was greeted with kernel panic reports from my iMac and system crashes. Apple recommended using a different brand - OWC to be specific - and I ordered 16 GB of RAM for next-day delivery. The package arrived the next morning, the RAM was installed that afternoon, and my Apple Hardware Test passed with flying colors. Thank you!

Rating: 5/5 Perfect Solution for My Windows Virtual Machine Slow-Down Issues June 29, 2015 I upgraded the memory on my iMac (3.6GHz Intel Core i5) and it fully resolved slowness issues I was having running a Windows virtual machine on my iMac. With the memory that came with my iMac (2x2GB), I would have to wait up to 10 minutes for an Excel file to open up. Often, Windows doing updates would make the rest of my iMac almost unusable (very, very slow).

With this memory kit installed, Windows files open almost instantly and I never experience slowdowns during Windows updates.

What a great solution!

Rating: 5/5 Memory Upgrade Kit June 22, 2015 I received the memory upgrade kit for my Mac , then checked the installation video, prior to attempting the install. i must admit it took three attempts before I got the Mac working correctly, but once installed everything worked fine, and I no longer get warning messages that my memory is getting critical! So thanks OWC for your supply and support.

Rating: 5/5 First time buyer June 1, 2015 I do not know much about computer hardware, but after doing my due diligence; I decided on OWC RAM to upgrade my iMac. I could not be happier with the enhanced performance. I use Adobe Suites for media production and web design (Adobe Premier, Audition, PS, and Muse). Increasing my RAM cut the rendering time on videos from over 2-hours to about 30-40mins. I would strongly suggest this product works great - performance is outstanding - made my mid-2010 iMac run as fast a brand new one.
