2nd HDD/SSD Caddy to replace Macbook Unibody superdrive /optical


The fit of this caddy is indeed identical to the standard superdrive in my 2012 MacBook Pro 15 inch. I have near 0 experience with laptop internals, but figuring out what to do was a breeze. The person who made my computer stripped a screw on my airport card, so that was a pain to get off - as well as using T6's to hold down the superdrive rather than the 00's they're supposed to have - but other than that, installation was awesome and takes no longer than 10-15 minutes for the equipped novice.

The only thing I have to comment on (why I chose 4 stars rather than 5) is that the Western Digital Black Scorpio 7200rpm I installed makes a sort of hiss that would be similar to a macbook air's exhaust when it gets hot. When I'm not listening to music it's a bit annoying. I assume that is because its screwed down to thin sheet metal that's causing a vibration noise or something rather than floating like the OWC solution.

I chose this over the data doubler because the data doubler is more expensive and tends to pull the ribbon down at an uncomfortable angle. I've been told by friends with the doubler that it doesn't make any hissing noises though.

Overall great product for the money. Local company so it didn't have to ship from HK so that's a plus!
