And that's not to imply that Crucial memory isn't good, though what I am saying is that do you really need the most expensive memory you can find, especially since OWC memory is as good (my computer works just fine) and its not only cheaper, but comes with a LIFETIME guarantee!
In fact, why would you use anyone else's?I would recommend this item to a friend!
OWC is the perfect supplier to any Mac products. Thanks for the services including shipping, quality, etc.
Thanks again.I would recommend this item to a friend!
Upgrading the iMac's RAM is easy to do. I took me all of ten minutes (I move slowly) and the installation went without a hitch.I would recommend this item to a friend!
Prior to this memory upgrade OS-X 10.9 was very slow and user switching took 30-90 seconds and was always painfully slow. BTW, OS-X 10.7 was very fast on this iMac with no performance issues at all. I tried to speed up the computer by turning off many programs running in the background and even disabled memory compression but all of this had minimal impact upon the sluggish painful performance of my once fast iMac. My only resort was to reboot every time I wanted to use the iMac and then after about 30 minutes of use it was running very slow once again.
I figured I needed to install an SSD (expensive) or more memory but was concerned that I could only max out at 6GB. After installing the 4GB module I now have 6GB of RAM and am shocked at how much faster the iMac is and user switching is now very fast once again. OS-X 10.9 does not work well in only 4GB it needs 6GB or more. Interestingly, when I cold boot into OS-X 10.9 the RAM usage wants to be near 3-4GB even with very few programs running so the OS really wants more than 4GB of RAM.
If you have a slow 2008 iMac with only 4GB then spend the ~$100 and buy the 4GB module it will revitalize your iMac.I would recommend this item to a friend!
I've never had trouble from OWC RAM, but Apple should know what is electrically-compatible with their systems. To exceed those limits should be dangerous.
The machine has performed beautifully with the extra RAM and I've not seen one glitch because of it. My skepticism was changed to confidence in OWC's testing.I would recommend this item to a friend!
