Plug and play, and great value. I’d picked up a Apple IIgs to play with, as I’ve never seen one before. I added a BOOTI to quickly load from USB, and once I added this card I was able to run GS/OS. Nice ;-)
I ordered my first GW 8MB module last month for my Apple IIGS. Over time I noticed that the machine would crash on a regular basis. I was able to perform a RAM test and determined that the module had several RAM errors. I sent a note to Garrett's Workshop and they straight away sent me a replacement memory module, which has worked flawlessly. My IIGS is rock solid stable now! GW has amazing customer service and stand behind their product. Buy with confidence!
I have an existing, fully working vintage 8MB card, but - man, it's huge, and I'm sure draws a lot of power. After a recent rebuild of my IIgs power supply (X1 safety cap's blew and filled the room with foul-smelling smoke), it made sense to do what I could to reduce the power load. This card is perfect for that - low power draw, modern components, smaller footprint - it checks all the boxes and then some. I've had zero issues with it to date, and you just can't beat it for the price and features!
The process to order was easy and the goods were shipped quickly and arrived in a very reasonable time frame given the current international circumstances. The Memory expansion card came with a slip of paper with very clear instructions on how to install it. The installation was a breeze and my Apple IIGS now has just over 4MB of RAM and boots GS/OS 6.0.1 without any issues at all.
Thank you for providing these products to keep retro computing alive!
I got this to replace original Apple 1MB board. The board works as advertised. Just plug and play. Takes very little space and allows easy access to the board in neighboring slot for HW debugging, which was previously obscured by large Apple board.
The quality of board is good, as shown on pictures. It was shipped fast, and packed well. The seller provided dedicated email for technical support, which I did not need to use, since everything was working.
I would recommend the seller and would likely buy again from them if they will come up with some other interesting gismos
