OWC Mercury Elite Pro Qx2

"I bought this because I believe that it should fit the OWC PCIe SSD card that I bought earlier, this is to replace my existing eSATa hard drive bay connecting to the PCIe card, which has been causing me feel problem (sometime can't find the card after reboot).
I have a chat with your online help desk, and they replied me promptly and told me it should not have incompatible issue with the card.
It arrived one day late against the estimated delivery date stated on the DHL tracking website.
I have opened the box, and installed accordingly to the manual, however, after an hour work, the "OWC HD" (OWC Drive Guide formatting utility) failed to show up on my Mac Pro 2008, therefore, I needed to use Mac 10.10 disk utility to do the format instead.
Where can I get this OWC Drive Guide formatting utility ?

Thank you for OWC - You saved my MacBook from death!

"Crash! Death! OMG! If you are feeling this (or felt this before), you know what it's like to realize that your hard drive on your precious MacBook is no longer working. After contacting Apple (warranty has expired), and getting no help from them, I knew I was in trouble. Thank goodness for OWC - not only did they have the drive I needed to replace my MacBook Retina Display, but they answered so many of my questions. I chatted numerous times with representatives...just to make sure that I was ordering the right thing and that I could actually do this.

Once it arrived, I had my computer working again within 20 minutes. It probably took me longer than the normal person, but I watched the video again and again to make sure I was doing everything correctly.

Now my OMG! is replaced with Thank you OWC for reviving my MacBook.

No More Beach Balls

"I upgraded my MacBook Pro from 4 GB RAM to 8 GB and immediately noticed a great improvement in performance. I almost never see a "beach ball" now!

The packaging for the RAM was excellent. The tools I ordered to help me open and install the RAM worked perfectly. Since this purchase, I ordered more RAM to upgrade my daughter's MacBook Pro.

Don't worry about doing the installation. The OWC videos make it so easy to do yourself!

I'm very glad I found OWC to purchase my RAM!

OWC does it again

"Purchased a used mac mini core i7 and OWC memory upgrade, system arrived in perfect condition, installed the RAM upgrade and moved my SSD from my old core 2 duo mac mini using their helpful video instructions, up and running super fast without having to buy the current non upgradeable mac mini. As with all my dealings to date with OWC great product and service."
