What our customers are saying about the MPG Pro Workstation
The Mac Photo Workstation you configured for our company is doing great. Aptly, we named her "Godzilla." Our clients are very impressed and pleased with this mega computer for photo shoots. Everything is running smoothly and lighting fast. The speed shows especially in Capture One Pro 5 for rendering incoming capture files, from the Canon 1ds Mark III to the Phase P45+ digital back. There are no lags in processing out files either. Even within CS5, batch processing of files is remarkably fast along with any rendering of high-rez PSD files (i.e. 100-200MB).
Godzilla has already caught the eye of some image retouchers we work with. It's a great system and I'm looking forward to building up a few more of these as we expand into more video, and maybe even tinkering with our Macbook Pros (MPG Pro Laptop) for raid stripe inside to enhance performance for our location photographers. — Jacob Drezdner, CSI Rentals, New York & Brooklyn
I just wanted to drop an email to say thank you for all of your help in configuring my MPG Mac Pro. It has arrived, set up and is working as designed. Thank you as well for all of the information you have put together in your web sites . . . I find it very practical, tangible to real world experience, and just appreciate the whole thought process that you are able to communicate. — Marvin Wicker
I want to thank you for your help, and tell you that your people did an outstanding job assembling, testing, packing and shipping my Mac Pro system. I got it Thursday and set it up over the weekend. The instructions included with the system were very clear and worked perfectly. You guys rock!!! —Peter Raulerson, Architect, Bellevue WA
"Worth every penny to get a 75% productivity gain! On a 78 image 12MP/images project file resulting in >2GB final image tiff." — Battle Brown, panoramic photographer, Pittsburgh, PA.
[Editor's note: this was a specialized situation with both hardware and software changes, most users will not see this amazing level of improvement].
I've finally got my workstation set up exactly like I want it. As you advised, I did a complete manual migration of s tuff from my old PB G4, and it went without a single hiccup. As for the workstation itself, I could not be happier. This thing simply hums. Programs load so fast that when I recall working on my old PB, it's like I went from a horse and buggy to the space shuttle. So thanks once more for steering me to the MPG Pro Workstation, and for the all the superb advice I've gotten from your Mac Performance Guide. And please pass my appreciation to the guys at OWC. They did a great job in putting it all together, and it was a pleasure dealing with them. — Joe R
"We received our MPG system on Friday… Everything about it is outstanding as expected, and I was particularly pleased with the absolutely perfect packaging considering that everything had been removed from and then replaced in the shipping containers after setup and burn in. … Thanks very much for your efficient and professional handling of our order." — Don

It's WICKED FAST! I'm so glad I chose to order it with you guys. I couldn't be happier. Anyway, that's a minor thing we can solve later. The computer itself is gorgeous and just what I was hoping for. Thanks again guys! — Paul B
