Review 1 for OWC Data Doubler Optical Bay Hard Drive/SSD Mounting Solution for Mac Mini 2009.
Fits in iMac 2009 DVD Bay
PostedJanuary 5, 2013
I wanted to replace my DVD drive with an SSD to have a fusion drive in my 2009 iMac. This mount was a direct replacement for the DVD drive. Everything fit nicely inside the iMac. I had no problems with installation. Owc even included a toolkit with my purchase and all tools provided worked with the iMac. I was able to swap the drive by disconnecting two out of the 4 ca les hooded to the screen. Use needle nose pliers to get the temp sensor off the internal DVD drive and replace it on your ssd. Took only 25 minutes to do the swap thanks to this carrier. It is made out of metal and not plastic like other cheaper units. I used m4 SSD make sure you upgrade to latest firmware before trying to use drive for stable performance.
Pros: Quality, strong, drop in replacement, tool kit included
