My iMac has been slow for a long time but the introduction of Catalina seemed to kill it. A week of recovery mode, disk utility, OS reinstalls, white screens, frozen boot ups and screaming brought me to the Flexx Memory website. Next day delivery - fantastic. Online support - amazing; exchanged messages with Marian. Very helpful; checked I’d ordered the correct kit, gave me a link to a very useful video guide and gave me some pointers on reinstalling the OS (Mojave for the moment). Wow! I’ve upgraded many PCs to SSDs and seen a marked improvement but this was my first iMac and it is truly remarkable! The kit had everything I needed. Apple don’t make it straightforward but the screen removal tools do the trick and from then on it’s just a case of being careful. (New HP laptops are worse) Anyway, the performance improvement is definitely worth the effort.. Wish I’d done it years ago.
