  1. I've always wondered. why use the OWC Data doubler? instead of a cheaper solution from Amazon? Does it have something to do with the open back? The HD being completely exposed?

  2. Hey wait, here you guys say 2012 macbook pros, even the 15", wont handle SATA 3, but at the blog you say that happens only with the 13". I thought the blog was more up to date than this video but apparently not, as my HGST SATA 3 is occasionally crashing on my 15" mid 2012 mbp.
