Answer:
Hello ORICO. What Virginia means is the drive bay MUST BE THE EXACT FORM FACTOR AS A 3.5 " drive. This means that the screws would be in the same position as a 3.5" drive and the connector would be in the same position as a 3.5" drive. Why would you want this? Because as Virginia stated some people have drive bays … see more Hello ORICO. What Virginia means is the drive bay MUST BE THE EXACT FORM FACTOR AS A 3.5 " drive.

Answer:
These are the first and only caddies I've used on mac pro towers that REALLY WORK. No issues. Once I screwed down a couple on the mac Pro disk "drawer" metal brackets, I can pull and pop SSDs in and out in seconds, something I can't say for the traditional duct tape technique.

Once I screwed down a couple on the mac Pro disk "drawer" metal brackets, I can pull and pop SSDs in and out in seconds, something I can't say for the traditional duct tape technique. I got a couple and regretted not buying more right away. One great thing is how quickly the SSD slides in and out of the Orico "nest". I only use one screw in a corner away from the connector end to hold the SSD in, that's plenty. Find a screw with that tiny threading that's easy to grab so you don't even need to use a screwdriver. Keep a couple of Oricos assembled to mac pro brackets, position the Orico just right tighten the screws and then never mess with that again. Just loosen the SSD fastening screw to change only the SSD. Granted, the mac Pro SATA is 3gb not 6, so for best performance you'd want a PCIe card SSD mount, but in most situations it doesn't really make much difference. see less These are the first and only caddies I've used on mac pro towers that REALLY WORK.

Answer:
Yes. There are four mounting screw holes on the bottom and three on each side just like an actual 3.5" HDD.

Answer:
happily, a spinning drive has screw holes placed just the same as the SSD cards that are shipped in a plastic shell mimicking a traditional drive...it all lines up the same, no problem.

Answer:
Fit a Samsung 2.5" 850 pro perfectly. Then fit in my 3.5" removable drive bay perfectly. It should work just fine.

Answer:
Your Macbook Pro uses a 2.5" drive so wouldn't need this adapter. You would buy a 2.5" SSD to replace the spinning disk, 2.5" hard drive currently in your computer.
This adapter is for desktop computers using a 3.5" hard drive.

They work wonderfully. Be sure to keep your original HDD after you cloned it for a few week just in case your SSD is defective, after that (assuming you have a DVD image of the OS) install the HDD as a secondary drive, format the old HDD and use it for data storage. That would allow you to use a lower capacity SSD (I use 240GB SSDs) and store your movies, music, etc. on the old HDD. All you should need is a SATA cable and possibly a power cable depending on your computer. A back-up of all of your files, OS installs and the like would be even better to have but that is beyond the scope of a comment here. see less I used these to convert two 3.5 inch HDD equipped HP SFF 6000 computers to 2.5 inch SSD.
