  1. Agree with Studio8h. OWC has always had the best products, prices, support and service. And a totally Green, environmentally conscious facility. Worth checking out their building on the website.
    I’ve got no connection, I just admire them.

  2. OWC has been great. So has NewEgg. You can get some pretty good deals if you are on their mailing lists, too. Sometimes a special discount comes along at just the right time.
