Took about 40 mins to add an SSD to my Mac Mini 2012, used a Samsung 840. Definitely not for the faint hearted as there are a lot of delicate components and cables inside a Mac Mini, even the guide that comes with this has lots of 'be careful' and 'don't break it' comments inside.

It does work though, very well.

I bought this to install a Samsung 840evo into my Mac mini. Instructions were simple enough to follow but I am quite tech minded and have built several pc's. Screw drivers are obviously cheap but they work well enough. My only criticism would be the price....

Performance without the penalty. Having followed the instructions that are clear and well written, I had no problems in installing the second drive. It went stress free and had the system up and running in no time.
I searched for how to create a Fusion drive (Pair both together for both capacity and performance) followed the simple steps and then restored my time machine backup to the newly created volume and was running with fast boot times and application performance comparable to having just an SSD.

Kit does exactly what it says on the tin - took me about 30 minutes to install (following their online videos), with only 1 or 2 scary moments. Note - I work in IT for a living. I'm not sure this kit is for the feint of heart!

First off the instructions supplied with this package are impressive. They're clear and well written with good diagrams and more importantly printed and unlike certain competitors whose instructions simply say "to reassemble, reverse previous steps", there are step by step instructions for putting the device back together too.

The tools are good quality too, including the two flat blade screwdrivers you don't actually need. The "logic board removal tool" (a squared off u-shaped piece of metal) was a little too narrow for the holes in the logic board but a little effort sorted that issue out.

What let the package down however, was the quality of the data cable itself. The connectors on the hard disk end of the cable are so loose (at least in my experience) that they keep sliding off of the hard drive and while there is a piece of the plastic mounting that stops the connector coming off totally, there is enough of a gap that allows some pins to loose contact with the HDD.

After the first installation, my hard drive was not recognised at all and when I took the mini apart for the second time, the edge of the connector nearest the logic board had slipped off. After reassembly the drive was recognised but wouldn't partition or format and after a third disassembly I found the other end off the connector had slipped off.

And to add insult to injury, as part of the third disassembly i missed a step due to frustration and managed to pull the IR/Power LED connector off of the logic board so now they don't work. At least the rest of the machine still works.

In the end I bought a different data cable from that "reverse steps" competitor which was a noticeably tighter fit during installation and worked properly the first time.

This is a reasonably good package let down by, arguably, the most important component and i can't recommend anyone buys it.

Does exactly what it should. SSD installed and working (had previously been running from a USB caddy).
Instructions good and clear, additional BT shield (to deal with USB3/BT interference) fitted well and seems to have improved things.

The logic board removal tool needs a little tweaking to get it to sit correctly, but that's a finger squeeze on the ends, not excessive.

I'm sure if your not in the slightest bit saavy with IT then you wouldn't even be looking here so I'll assume you know what it's for :p

I upgraded my Mac mini (mid 2011) which now has a crucial 240GB SSD with windows 7/OSX mavericks and this cable does exactly what it advertises, fitting was a little heart wrenching but I did it, and with the tools provided, so for anyone looking to upgrade, this is a must by!

It came with a fantastic, easy to follow guide with detailed pictures. I'd never carried out a task as complex as this on a Mac before but it wasn't as complex I thought and I think the guide really helped that. The tools are of good quality too. Overall I'd highly recommend this very high quality product.
