Rating: 5/5 Essential for Late 2011 MacBook Pro Dual Drive March 11, 2017 I recently upgraded my late 2011 15" MacBook Pro with two hard drives, a 1TB SSD in the main hard drive bay and a 1TB 7200 HGST Travelstar in the optical drive bay. Some of you probably know what happened next: I began experiencing I/O errors (the dreaded "Error -36" to be precise) with the Travelstar almost immediately. I tested the drive, my optical drive caddy and even the cables, but could not solve the problem. Fortunately, I stumbled across OWC's site and, after a live chat with a technician, determined that three models of late 2011 MacBook Pros could not utilize SATA III hard drives in the optical drive bay, and I would need a replacement SATA II drive in that spot. Needless to say, this product, almost identical to the drive I was replacing, except with proprietary OWC SATA II firmware installed, was a huge life-saver. The new drive works great!

Rating: 5/5 There's no such thing as "too much storage"! :-) February 4, 2016 On my early-2011 MacBook Pro 15"er (also bought from OWC! :-), I eplaced its 500GB internal disk - that was starting to get occasionally flaky after half a decade running 24/7 - with this new 1TB disk 1. Prior to swapping the disks, I made two clones of the internal disk, using excellent CarbonCopyCloner. (What? ... me? ... paranoid? You BETCHA!) 2. VERY easy to swap the disks (PROVIDED one has the proper weirdo screwdrivers, which I had - thanks to getting a kit thereof from OWC :-). 3. After swapping the disks, I CAREFULLY SAVING all the yummy software goodies that OWC kindly includes on their disks. 4. Then I used Disk Utility to partition, format-if-needed, and name the partitions as I desired. (NICE to have that "extra" 500GB!) 5. Next, I put the "tiny old" 500GB disk into one of OWC's On-the-Go enclosures [also excellent!], bought at the same time. 6. Then rebooted from that previously-internal now-external disk ... and had CarbonCopyCloner clone all of the old partitions from the old disk, into/onto the new partitions on the new [now-internal] disk. Took HOURS (but - hey! - CCC had to copy ~450GB's of files!), but once done, I restarted from my primary-used partition on the new disk, and everything worked great. Including right now - weeks after the swap. 7. Also, when I had the "spare" time, I DID reboot from each ot the other partitions that had different OS-X versions on 'em, just to make sure that everything in all the partitions worked as it should. It/they did. :-)

Rating: 5/5 Biggest available for my macbook pro December 21, 2015 I first bought a 2TB to upgrade the 750GB in my optical bay. It is not officially supported and indeed it did not work in my 2011 mac-book pro. It was returned without a problem though and I got this one instead. I was hoping for the 2TB but this gives me some more space until they hopefully make a bigger drive that is supported. The 6gb/s doesn't like the optical bay spot but I have a factory installed SSD in the OS and I want to leave it there. Support and instructions are the best at OWC. It's been in a few weeks and so far so good. The 750GB was used about 3 years in the optical bay without issue so I feel confident this one will too.

It was a step up from the 160 GB 5400 RPM that was factory installed. There's not much a hard drive has to do well to be a good one.

Used for a couple years now and have not had a single problem, and the drive is used for daily backups. I simply clone my SSDs to different partitions on this drive. Can't comment on the speed since I rarely have to boot from it, but it seems fast enough for a Winchester.

Rating: 5/5 Great storage drive September 8, 2015 I was looking for an inexpensive way to add storage in my 2012 MacBook Pro. I used the optical drive expansion kit to add this as storage for all of my media and documents. I am using a solid-state drive for all of my programs. I've been very happy with the performance of this drive.

I did have to call and get some help because the drive would randomly unmount. I found out from Macsales support that it can happen with and unshielded cable. I took some leftover shielding, wrapped the wire, and the issue was gone. It has performed flawlessly ever since.
