Very impressed with this product and even more so, Micro Sata Cables' customer service. I received this product on Monday after a quick mail turnaround. Used it to make the SSD switch & second HDD in the optical bay changeover. This is the correct caddy for non-unibody, Pre-2008 MacBook Pros (3,1 / Santa Rosa / A1226). Converts the PATA connection from the optical drive to SATA for your HDD.
Fit is great, use the superdrive's mounting brackets, pull of the black bevel on the bottom, & the HDD is held pretty firmly in place. A little tight around the SATA connection, but manageable.
Had problems getting it to work at first (ATA wouldn't recognize caddy) and was convinced that the SATA connection was bad. Anyways, filed for return last night and MicroSataCables contacted me this morning, offering refund or replacement, refunding shipping costs to and back of the defective caddy. I tried to install the caddy one more time this evening, realized that I didn't have the ribbon cable fully seated in the logic board connection (I'm an idiot....), and cancelled the return request. I ordered a second one last night to try and expedite the process as I was trying to get this installed before I left for the holidays. I'm going to go ahead and keep it though and give it to a friend for his MBP.
Long story short, amazing customer service, great product, great price (screw paying $70 for the optibay or OWC's or any other name brand caddy). Thank you Micro SATA Cables, I am one happy customer!!

Decided to squeeze another year or so out of our trusty Early 2008 Macbook Pro (the last pre-unibody model). Unlike the data doubler from OWC, this caddy fit right in without any trouble at all. Once you have the hard drive installed (takes about 30 seconds), the installation is exactly the same as for a regular superdrive - lots of how-to videos available on the web for that.

When I installed this in my computer I quickly noticed that the little tiny screw holes that you are sopposed to screw the brackets on with from your old optical drive, were not actually threaded, and were too small to screw into. I had to force the screws into the holes with much effort. If I had more time and didn't mind taking my computer all apart multiple times I would have returned it for a replacement. Also one side of the adaptor was kinda bent, most likely from lightweight packaging along with the Item being shipped in just a padded envelope instead of a box.

All said and done, it is in my computer and working, but it took much longer than it should have and a great deal of effort. I am guessing the average person would not have been able to use the item I received.

The manufacture needs to step up their game on quality control.

WARNING TO BUYERS: You may receive wrong part!
Description States: "Apple Models: non-unibody models- Before Late 2008 Unibody". I purchased based on the positive reviews from users specifically using this with the Early 2008 Macbook Pro, and also based on the CORRECT image that is advertised. The component I received was NOT the same as in the advertised image or the item description.

I bought this for my Early 2008 Macbook Pro, and the part that I received did not have the correct adapter connection for between the caddy and motherboard.

On the other hand, the caddy shipped on time and physically fit very well in the laptop case (other than not being able to connect it).

This is the 2nd drive bay I ordered from Amazon, the first one was a SATA to SATA and I found out later that the older generation MacBook Pro's (non unibody) had IDE superdrives. This drive bay worked just great I used my 500gb Western Digital drive in this bay adapter that way I could have my smaller Solid State Drive in place as well. The install was really strait forward, iFixit has great tear down guides if you have never taken apart your laptop before. Overall if you are looking to add new life to an older MacBoo Pro, or just want a little more storage, this will do exactly what you need for very cheap.

Like many potential buyers, I wanted to convert my optical bay drive in my Early 2008 White Macbook (Core 2 Duo) with a hard drive. I connected my current 160 gb HDD to this adapter and placed a shiny new intel SSD into the default slot. The mac picked up the two drives (initially loading up the 160 gb HDD). Did an install of Lion onto the SSD and boom I was good to go.

Only thing thats need to be done to get this to fit was to remove the black plastic cover (honestly, you just pull it off in less than 2 sec).

I replaced my old drive with an SDD in the main bay, and added a 1TB drive using this caddy, and it is working perfectly! I see that the price has dropped about $5 since I ordered last week, but fewer are left. Well worth the few $$ (don't pay $99 for these adapters!).

I ordered this 9.5mm IDE Optical Bay Hard Drive Adapter Caddy for my non-unibody black macbook. Instead, I received a Micro SATA Cables - 12.7mm SATA Optical Bay Hard Drive Adapter Caddy in the mail. Although very similar, definitely not compatible with my macbook as the optical bay cable does not fit into that caddy. Unfortunately I didn't realize this until I disassembled my macbook to install it. And I'm unable to exchange it thru Amazon.com and they can only offer me a full refund to try to order from Micro SATA Cables again. But since they can't seem to process orders correctly, Amazon recommends I order from another website to ensure I get the correct one...
Back to searching the internet to find a caddy again for me.
