Works perfectly, comes with a small philips screw driver and 2 little screws along with screw threads to secure the drive. If you are trying to add a second hard drive to your mac I would recommend this product even if you have no experience. All you have to do is remove the bottom panel of your macbook pro, lift off a few of the connectors that pass over the cd drive and remove the 3 screws that secure it to the case. Following that you should be able to swap out the cd drive with this nifty little gadget just pop in the hard drive, click it into the socket and add the plastic tab which holds the hard drive secure. (I haven't found any other hard disk caddys that use this so this one is worth it) Then tighten down the 2 side screws, all the back from your old cd drive and fasten it into place with the connector attached and you are pretty much good to go.

I would recommend watching some online videos if you haven't done it before as you could break something if you are careless. I would also point out that if you are adding an SSD, put the HDD into this caddy and replace your HDD with the SSD, thats because on a macbook pro the cd drive only uses a 3gb/s bus rather than a 6gb/s.

Reasonable quality for the price, aluminium not silvered plastic, fits ex- iMac DVD drive well and works just using supplied usb cable, BUT.... The supplied bezel is only good for blanking off the opening, won't fit DVD drive leaving mechanism exposed: looks shoddy.
Shame.

The caddy does the job. Screws were a bit awkward, but fine. Just to let everyone know, it comes with a screw driver to tighten in the screws on it. It works fine for that. But when you go taking out screws on your MacBook do not use it. I used it because it was in my hand at the time (even though i had my good screw driver kit beside me). I ended up ringing a screw with it and i spent 4 hours trying to get the ringed screw out. It is a very cheep little screw driver. Use good tools doing any operation

I bought this product 3.5 months ago. I used it twice and it was ok at the beginning. Two weeks later I tried to play dvd through it but the dvd couldn't start and I got the message on my computer that my device is not recognised or malfunctioned. I tried to use it with both cables, inserted different dvd drives with no difference. When I insert dvd drive directly into my laptop it plays perfectly. I will try to get the refund or replacement just to see what the seller has to say.

Although this caddy is very high quality,the casing is of aluminium construction,and strangely its listed as a MAC accessory,the caddy holds the drive fine etc,however be aware you are left with a ugly hole at the front with no trim plate,the trim plate provided does not work.

Does exactly what it is supposed to. Even works in a regular laptop. Since my Macbook died, I placed it in my spare Dell and it does a super job. just a shame the faceplate from my dell optical drive doesn't fit onto it to close the hole that now exists in my laptop.

Fitted well in my late 2006 15" Macbook Pro. Installed a SSD in the place of the HDD, and placed the HDD in the new bay. Now i have a faster computer and more HD space in the laptop.
