Almost perfect transaction June 19, 2015
Reviewer: Linda Guy from St. Petersburg, FL United States  
I purchased an Apple Mac Pro, early 2008 and it came as promised and worked well for 1 week. Then the signal to the monitor started making red/black checked patterns more and more until my monitor went black. Mac of all Trades technical support were helpful and finally took it back and replaced the video card. It is now working well again. In the future, I would save the packaging until the warranty is up, just in case it has to be returned.

Performance with great value January 2, 2015
Reviewer: LL from Irvine, CA United States  
With two quad-core processors, this Mac Pro provides significant improvement in performance compared to my other computers (MacBook, MacMini, iMac). This Mac Pro system has Apple's legendary case design with easy access to all relevant internal peripherals for easy upgrades and room for future expansion. This system is more than adequate for use as an engineering workstation.

The graphics card that came with my system went bad, consistently causing kernel panics (as shown in the kernel panic log). Contacted tech-support and was quickly sent a replacement card within a week, which solved the problem, and the system has been running reliably ever since.

One negative to this system is that it consistently uses around 300 Watts. When the system first starts, it causes the lights to momentarily flicker; the room that the system is in is always a few degrees warmer....

Fantastic Service! September 22, 2014
Reviewer: Alexander Edin from CA, United States  
This item arrived at my doorstep last week with the exact specs, as expected. The shipping speed was around normal time, although UPS delivered the package unusually late, at around 8:00pm, but that is the shipping carriers fault.  They way the item was packed in the box was done phenomenally well, so the computer was completely safe and not harmed at all during shipping.

Overall, the buying experience with this website has been fantastic and professional, and I will surely purchase from this website in the future.

Mac Pro dual 4 core August 26, 2014
Reviewer: D. T. Hardy from Tucson, AZ United States  
An excellent buy! It arrived on time, very securely packaged. I installed some extra RAM, pulled the hard drives from my old Mac Pro, applied the free Mac upgrade to OS 10.9, and had it running in under an hour.
