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!!
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.
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).
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).
Back to searching the internet to find a caddy again for me.
