5.0 out of 5 stars Great kit and instructions
I had already done a good deal of research before embarking on this project. Fitting the disk doubler involves taking the Mac Mini to bits but all of the equipment, and instructions, needed is included in the kit so it is straightforward. Fitting a SSD as the primary drive has transformed the speed of operation of the Mac Mini.

Well worth the effort

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent little kit but way too expensive.
The kit does what it needs to do but this could be sold for £10.

You could probably build your own kit of screwdrivers for a third of the cost of this kit. You could fathom a spudger out of a number of different materials. Just google "make your own spudger".

I bought out of desperation. Wouldn't buy again.

When I bought my Mac Mini I was disappointed with the slow drive speed. Even compared to my old PC which had a SSD upgrade it was slow. Using this kit to install a SSD as the boot disk made a massive difference! It is not for the faint hearted though, as you have to take the entire contents of the Mac out and then reassemble it. A lot of the connectors are very small and fragile, so if you break anything Apple will not help you as this upgrade invalidates the warranty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, complete kit supplied with everything you need, 6 Jan. 2014

Kit is complete and works a treat. Instructions are clear and can be backed up with any of several video's available on YouTube.

Anyone with a little patience and a bit of technical/mechanical know-how can do this - just be delicate and remember that if you need to force anything then you are doing it wrong!!!

Used this quite a number of times over a year or so. Very useful and happy on the purchase. Just be prepared for a cheap plastic-feel ... this in no way affects their application or their usefulness, just makes them cheaper to purchase. So very happy with this kit.
