Rating: 5/5 Couldn't Be Happier!! November 23, 2016 DIdn't know anything about upgrading memory on my iMac before I started this process. Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop were bogging down my one year old 27"iMac. I upgraded the memory through MacSales and couldn't be happier with the 1) Timeliness of shipping: rec'd order the next day, 2) ease of installing: literally took 5 minutes, 3) Performance: night and day difference upgrading from the OEM 8 GB to 32 GB and finally 4) customer service: even though I didn't really need it, Customer service emailed me to make sure everything was rec'd and working ok. Also followed up with a 2nd email and had a nice personal touch. All of these things add up to wanting to do business with MacSales again for sure. If they have anything you are thinking about buying do not hesitate to give them your business!

Rating: 5/5 What an excellent upgrade August 22, 2016 My only regret is I didn't upgrade to 32GB sooner. Five minutes, no tools, no problems, and no more swapping even despite the depredations of Safari and Chrome on my iMac's RAM.

Rating: 5/5 Just what my iMac needed! June 19, 2016 Having already been through the kernel panic nightmare when trying another "popular" brand of memory in my 2013 iMac I was hesitant to try yet again. No worries with OWC, my 32GB upgrade has yet to have a single issue!

Rating: 5/5 Triple A service December 21, 2015 When I needed to expand the memory on my iMac, the OWC website made it very easy to determine what I needed, and the very useful installation videos made it a breeze to install the memory when it arrived. The price was reasonable, the service exemplary, and the delivery to Japan was surprisingly quick. It was only a matter of days from the time I ordered until my iMac was upgraded. All in all an ideal transaction. I won't hesitate to order from OWC again and I'll certainly recommend OWC to my friends. Kudos for providing such top notch service.

Rating: 5/5 Very cool upgrade for any 2014/2015 iMac November 15, 2015 Get your new iMac upgraded to 32GB instead of ordering from Apple, pay fair market for memory and let it fly! Kit comes on a small, resistant less resource consuming box and it is easy to install. For customers in US you might be able to get rebate for the original Apple cards!

Rating: 5/5 Works great for less than half the price of Apple's upgrade. October 24, 2015 Bought this for my New 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display 3.5 Hz Processor, and it works great! Apple was going to charge me $600 for this same upgrade.

Rating: 5/5 32 GB Ram Memory October 20, 2015 the 32 GB of Ram came in a clean package with installation instructions. After completing this installation the ram work as it should. Met all my expectations, but if you decide to buy this ram, as I did, to fix the "application out of memory" problem I suggest you look up a video on why your applications run out of memory.

Rating: 5/5 SUPER FAST DELIVERY - WORKS WITHOUT ANY ISSUES! October 8, 2015 I had read recommendations in the Apple Forums concerning the great quality of the OWC RAM and so far everything they said was correct. My new iMac is lightning fast and the installation went without any issues. The OWC installation video which is a great feature to have on their website made the process "idiot proof"! It took me about 90 seconds and the RAM was immediately recognized when I rebooted my new 5k Retina iMac.

The delivery to me was super fast which is important when ordering anything related to a computer. Also I love the rebate program that OWC offers for the RAM that was originally installed in the iMac and I received a check in about 2 weeks. It was a simple process and saved me the work of listing it on eBay.

Rating: 5/5 Worked Perfectly October 2, 2015 I ordered this because from OWC because they had the only memory selector that gave my full confidence that I was buying the right memory for my Retina 27" Late 2014.

I was also very please how easy it was to send the original 8Gb memory back to them for a cash trade in.

The memory installed without issue and was immediately visiible.

Rating: 5/5 Fabulous Product & Great Service June 23, 2015 I bought these memory modules for a new 27" iMac retina display. To save on the initial investment cost, I ordered the iMac with the minimum 8GB and then quickly upgraded to 32GB. The ease of installation is just great! No problems. Did the install in matter of minutes. The iMac speed is blazing fast - yes, I know it is not a scientific basis - but the overall performance is better than with the original 8GB installed. Would highly recommend these memory modules.

Rating: 5/5 Easy to install,works well May 3, 2015 I've installed quite a few memory DIMMS in my time. In a previous job I was in charge of hardware for a workstation manufacturer. My wife just purchased a Retina 5K iMac. Turns out that installing memory is one of the few things that a user can do. And it it is very easy to do. There is little reason not to max out the memory as we will use the iMac for Photoshop duties for the foreseeable future.

Rating: 5/5 It all just worked March 5, 2015 I bought my new iMac 5K with the standard 8GB of RAM, and ordered the OWC 32GB upgrade kit at the same time. The memory upgrade arrived first; the iMac a few days later. Switching out the memory took maybe 2 minutes at most. The iMac works great and the OWC rebate program (sending in the 8GB of RAM I removed from the iMac) also went without a snag.

What can I say? It just all worked.
