so awesome

PostedJanuary 4, 2014
I installed this data doubler with an SSD I had laying around. It was a breeze. The hardest part was getting the dang putty knife in the tiny crack to get the case off. I do recommend watching the installation video that OWC has posted. Unless you're a pro and do this stuff for a living, the walk through is quite helpful.
My kit also came with a small tool set consisting of 4 screwdrivers (2 torx, 1 phillips, and 1 flat) and a pry tool. I didn't see this anywhere in the description, so I actually ordered the exact same set. No big deal though. Now I have spares, just in case. The screwdrivers are also lightly magnetized, which really helps out with these tiny screws.
Pros: Quality, easy installation
I would recommend this to a friend!

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

This product is the best way to expand your HD space in your mini. I used it for time machine. Installation was easy, if you know how to work inside your mini. If not check the videos here. Congratulations to OWC for this product.
