    OWC is a well-respected name in RAM and other Mac components. They've been around 23 years.

    yea i have purchased from them before for hard drives and such and tried searching the forums for people who have used their brand not just the company and couldn't find any reviews.

    but i placed my order for the owc 8gb kit it will be here tomorrow and i picked up the 11 piece tool set as well i have some tools but last time i picked up a 00 philips from sears it did not fit. i usually do phone repairs and computer repairs in my office but so far nothing else uses the 00 size phone stuff is usually torx t5 and t6. :D

    Thanks for the help!

    I have OWC's 8GB on my 2011 mbp, their battery in my 2006 mbp and 2 of their wireless USB devices on older powerpc's.

    I would definitely recommend them to others

    I've used them both and they are both very reliable and work well. In fact, I'm using OWC's 8GB in my 2011 Macbook Pro 15 now with no issues at all.

    I ordered a SSD, took 4 days to get to the uk and that was over a weekend, i was impressed with the speed. Dont forget import tax, normally works out roughly the same price as stuff bought in the UK.
