    So I've held off on updating to High Sierra due due to all the negative reviews and issues I've read about. I decided today to do the install with 10.13.1 on a 2017 27" iMac, i7, 24GB RAM and a 512 SSD.

    I'm happy to say I've been running it for a few hours now with zero issues. Basic rundown:

    - Downloaded from the App Store and saved locally
    - Rebooted system for good measure
    - Ran installer. Install time was exactly 36 minutes
    - Finalized install on reboot
    - Verified apps, backups and other odds and ends

    Overall? Happy I did the update. Whole system is "snappier", yeah, even Safari, and I have zero complaints so far. I haven't timed a reboot per say, but honestly, it's as fast, if not faster than previously.

    I'll report back if I see any issues over the next couple of days, but at this point, things look pretty darn good!

    How long did it take to download? I tired today and it kept saying 18-20 hrs. Had to cancel. I have very good and stable internet so dunno. Will try again tonight.

    Took me maybe 30 minutes or so? I stepped away for a while but it was fairly quick.
