Is this upgrade compatible with my computer?

We guarantee our memory is 100% compatible with your computer. How can we make such a bold claim? It is combination of quality product, vast industry knowledge and experience and the Upgradeable system we built to help customers find an upgrade for their specific computer.

You may have noticed our website is different from any other. It is not your typical eCommerce web shop. We do not get a list of products and categorise them, making you do all the work = which is the best upgrade? Our website is a configurator. We have taken all guess work out of buying an upgrade. Our technicians and engineers match the right memory upgrade to every computer we list. We do this in a unique way, which is the Upgradeable secret sauce. Our history and experience is in designing and manufacturing of computer components. In fact, in 1990's we were the first company to make a third party memory module in Australia at The Research Park, Bond University in Queensland. We have condensed all that experience into a system that rates a components quality. If it meets Upgradeable's stringent quality guidelines, then we list it as an available upgrade. That is why we can offer a lifetime warranty, and fast delivery. Who loses if it is not compatible? We do because we pay for the shipping charges and you get a full refund or advanced replacement!

Our goal is to delivery the right upgrade the first time. Look at our reviews, they say we deliver on what we promise.

You have saved me a ridiculous $500 in fees that a local IT store was going to charge me on top of the price of the hardware, and added to that, I feel a sense of achievement that I was able to do something I thought I couldn't manage on my own because of the step by step instructions you provided. Better still, my Mac is working better than it did when I bought it 10 years ago. Thank you very much for giving me the confidence to have a go :)

Nice touch being able to buy spare screw set for my Macbook Pro, which luckily I did not need.

Hey guys, I just wanted to share my upgradeable story with you… So firstly, customer service - if I’ve had a better customer service experience I can’t remember it - I spoke with two techs and the lady who answered the phone and you were all patient, friendly and really helpful! The drive and bracket arrived the day after I ordered it, around 11am. That was brilliant. The gear itself is all up and running. I ran some comparative time tests pre and post installation and here are the results: My system is a MBP 15” 8,2 running Yosemite. I keep it clean, regularly back up to time machine and get rid of unwanted stuff all the time. I’m fastidious with keeping my hard drive in good order. Over the past year the computer had slowed down to snail’s pace. Pro Tools was crashing and freezing regularly, Indesign was as slow as all get out and boot up times were astronomical. Turning on computer to password screen: Old Drive: 1m.46s SSD Drive: 11 seconds Password Screen to desktop: Old drive: 24 seconds SSD: 3 seconds Opening Pro Tools and opening an existing 23 track mix session with plugins: Old Drive: 2m.38s SSD: 29 seconds Opening InDesign CS6: Old Drive: 58 seconds SSD: 6 seconds I’m no statistician, but them’s good numbers in anyone’s language! Just a couple of minor things in relation to the installation process: 1) There’s an extra screw holding the optical drive on that wasn’t mentioned in the instructions. On the left hand side under a wire as you look at it per photo. Potential trap for young players 2) There was mention of a small silver cable in between the two ribbon cables - my mbp didn’t have this… 3) the screws included to mount the SSD into the bracket weren’t quite long enough. I had a couple of spares so no big deal. That’s it, thought you might like the feedback.Thanks again for all your help. This machine is integral to my livelihood so doing this was a big decision for me - thanks to you guys it was painless, easy and quick!

I keep it clean, regularly back up to time machine and get rid of unwanted stuff all the time. I’m fastidious with keeping my hard drive in good order. Over the past year the computer had slowed down to snail’s pace. Pro Tools was crashing and freezing regularly, Indesign was as slow as all get out and boot up times were astronomical. Turning on computer to password screen: Old Drive: 1m.46s SSD Drive: 11 seconds Password Screen to desktop: Old drive: 24 seconds SSD: 3 seconds Opening Pro Tools and opening an existing 23 track mix session with plugins: Old Drive: 2m.38s SSD: 29 seconds Opening InDesign CS6: Old Drive: 58 seconds SSD: 6 seconds I’m no statistician, but them’s good numbers in anyone’s language! Just a couple of minor things in relation to the installation process: 1) There’s an extra screw holding the optical drive on that wasn’t mentioned in the instructions. On the left hand side under a wire as you look at it per photo. Potential trap for young players 2) There was mention of a small silver cable in between the two ribbon cables - my mbp didn’t have this… 3) the screws included to mount the SSD into the bracket weren’t quite long enough. I had a couple of spares so no big deal. That’s it, thought you might like the feedback.Thanks again for all your help. This machine is integral to my livelihood so doing this was a big decision for me - thanks to you guys it was painless, easy and quick!

Great service from the guys in the office. Only issue I had was calling for help on a Saturday. The lady I spoke to said she had no one who could help me right then but would get me help when they returned to their desk. I was pretty sure she was actually a remote answering service and asked her directly of that was the case or if she was actually in the office and it was true that no one was there. She insisted she was in the office, despite me challenging her on that, and would get someone to call me as soon as they returned. I got my callback on Monday and it was confirmed she was not in the office and was just a remote answering service. Absolutely no problem with that service being used, but they should just be honest and tell a customer the situation, not try and make them believe that someone will be calling them back that day. Quite frustrating needing help on a Saturday and having someone tell you they are actually working but just not available. Much better to set the expectation of teh client that the reality is no one will be helping you until Monday

Good service but the steps to complete the upgrade were not great. I had to ring your office and get some advice and also cheat a bit by going to an oppositions website. Easy in the end when I knew how and and I am very happy with the improvement in my Mac's performance with an SDD drive.

I purchased the wrong SDD so was unable to use the product. My MBP was not listed (it is 'late 2012') and I therefore selected 'mid-2012' or something like that - unfortunately I was wrong so blew my investment.

Being in a wheelchair I was a little nervous getting my Mac to you guys. However, Alex made the whole process not just seamless but easy and indeed enjoyable.

the photos on the instructions for my macbook pro were not entirely accurate (i.e., position of components once i removed rear lid). also my recovery partition on osx was blown away by the superduper copy. i had to recreate it by reinstalling mavericks. this took time and download gb and required significant tech knowhow.

Lifetime Warranty

All RAM upgrades supplied by Upgradeable have a lifetime warranty.
Our definition of lifetime warranty is: If the product ceases to work at anytime, you can return it for a replacement. Simple. No if's, no but's. Our RAM will out last your computer. We have had the same warranty since year 2000. It has never varied or been modified. Our competitors have played catch up and matched our warranty but they can never match our service. We don't provide a lifetime warranty as a gimmick, it is a statement on the values of our company, our goal of exceptional customer service and the quality of the products we supply.

Five year SSD warranty (3 year OWC Aura)
Unlike RAM, an SSD has limited write cycles, so it will eventually wear out. The Crucial MX500 is rated to last 360TB of write cycles. You would have to write 200GB every day for five years to wear it out! The new warranty for the MX500 SSD is five years. Our faulty SSD return policy is to make it as simple as possible for the customer. We will replace faulty drives as soon as they are returned. Please note older Crucial drives have a 3 year warranty and some OWC Aura SSD drives we sell have a 3 year warranty. The new Aura Pro X has a 5 year warranty.

14 Day Money Back Guarantee
When we started Upgradeable, we needed to assure customers our RAM would make a difference. What if the RAM upgrade did not speed up your computer? The answer is you can return the memory for a full refund. We chose 14 days because we thought that was a reasonable time frame. We have never refused a refund that has been a reasonable time past 14 days, such as 21 days or 30 days. If you are not happy with the RAM upgrade, we don't want to make your day worse by saying no to a refund. In fact, everything we list we stock, so if you dont want it, we restock it. This is a point in difference to most Kingston resellers. They don't stock the product, they are selling from someone else's warehouse. Which is why they don't like refunds.

Our money back guarantee is about your assurance that the RAM will make a difference. If is not about how many days, it is about customer service and trust. We have had the same guarantees for 18 years because they are sustainable. We plan to be here servicing our customers for more than the next 18 years!
