Rating: 5/5 SO HAPPY! December 14, 2016 I have a mid 2012 Macbook pro that has been very sluggish for the past few years. After finally getting frustrated to the point of considering just buying a new one I took it to the Apple store. It was there this website and product was suggested to me as a fix. I was advised to upgrade to 8 GB RAM and a SSD to fix my current issue but also "future proof" my machine since it was the last model that included the CD/DVD drive. Now that I have installed the new RAM my computer is running almost as if it were brand new. My next purchase will certainly be a SSD from here!

Rating: 5/5 Always Great December 5, 2016 I've ordered memory from these folks many times, and it is always a completely satisfying experience. The products are attractively priced, delivered quickly, and perform well. I had the opportunity to meet these folks at a MacWorld Expo a very long time ago. They impressed me then, and continue to impress me today.

Rating: 5/5 Practically perfect in every way September 28, 2016 I looked up add-on memory for my model of macbook pro, ordered the maximum listed (because that's the maximum my system will take) and got it quickly. Once I had it I had the chips swapped out and everything back in place within 5 minutes. What more could I ask for?

Rating: 5/5 Perfect! April 24, 2016 This was my first time ordering from OWC. I'm more than satisfied. One of the things I like the most is that you don't have to worry about compatibility issues. No need to guess. The website just tells exactly what you need for your Mac model. The package arrived in time and was packed very well. Installing RAM was a piece of cake thanks to the videos that explain the process in details. Everything works just fine. I would definitely buy from here again once I need anything else. Highly recommended. Thank you OWC!

Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Arkansas Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Home User Owned Product: over 6 months
Rating: 5/5 Easy and simple! January 21, 2016 As far as performance goes I think going to the SSD gave me super speed...but more RAM never hurts! OWC, from all my reading of reviews on Amazon, IS THE WAY TO GO for plug and play. It took me about 10 minutes start to finish to take out old and install these cards. It is so easy! And the price has come down so that its a cheap way to upgrade your MBP. I was careful to discharge static on an electrical outlet, run a humidifier, and do as Apple says on their RAM upgrade install to handle static. Very satisfied!
