I just installed my replacement RAM from OWC – the machine hasn’t blown up yet.
No more disk swapping every 5 seconds – it’s so good.
This time they sent TechWorks RAM instead of a ‘generic’ brand that I had the last 3 times, so perhaps that bodes well. Even though the RAM I bought from them has been a real hassle, I have little ill-will towards OWC because they are so fast at responding and their cross-ship policy is great. I’ve been ordering from them for years now; their customer service has never failed and this is really the only product failure (albeit a painful one).
