New Power2U Video Helps Answer Questions

Friday, March 9th, 2012 | Author:

It’s pretty safe to say that, since its introduction, Newer Technology’s Power2U USB/AC Wall Outlet has been insanely popular. Tens of thousands of Power2Us have been sold, and only a very small percentage of people have had questions during the installation process.

Fortunately, though, most of the questions boil down to a few cases which can be easily remedied. While the FAQ tab on the appropriate product page(s) should suffice, these topics are actually easier to understand when presented visually. After all, they say “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

Well, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth 30,000 words per second, and that’s just what we’ve done. We hope by illustrating answers to common questions that you’ll be able understand the solutions more easily.

You can find the video in our Tech Center if you want, but we’ve also embedded it after the break… Article Continues…

New Instructional Videos!

Friday, August 12th, 2011 | Author:

It’s been a while since we really drew attention to new additions to our Instructional Series of videos, but considering the requests we’ve been getting lately, we figured you may be interested.

We’ve added a total of six new videos to our DIY section, showing you how to upgrade the memory and storage on the 2011 mini and mini Server, as well as showing you how to install the Mercury Aura Pro Express in the 2011 MacBook Airs.

You can check out these new videos (and all out other ones, too) in our Tech Center, on our YouTube Channel, or in iTunes.


OWC YouTube Channel Reaches 1 Million Views

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011 | Author:

The OWC YouTube channel, where you can find all our instructional videos, SSD shootouts, promotional pieces and other bits of video goodness, topped over one million views late Monday. Of course, that number doesn’t include views from our Tech Center or from iTunes. If you take those two into account as well, we’re probably already closing in on the two million mark.

Our Instructional Series shows you, step-by-step, how to install the most popular upgrades in most modern Macs. Also popular are our SSD shootouts where we show how much an OWC SSD can improve your computer’s performance. They’re just one way we try to make upgrading with OWC the best experience possible.

We’re not resting on our laurels, though. We’ve got more great content in the pipeline, including:

  • in-depth looks at some of our products
  • more shootouts showing performance gains from upgrading
  • more of our highly-acclaimed Instructional Series of videos
  • various other fun little tidbits from the OWC Video Staff

To get the latest, join the over 1000 subscribers to our YouTube channel and keep an eye here on the OWC Blog!
