OWC Data Doubler Kit

Has anyone in the Uk ordered the OWC Data Doubler Kit and if so how long did it take to arrive. Ordered mine last Monday and i'm sitting here with a new SSD and itchy fingers waiting for it

Don't live in the UK but if you order free shipping from OWC it takes a long time here in the US. They probably sent it by boat.

You could've ordered it shipped from the UK instead.

It's a piece of flat wire with two plugs.

Yeah I noticed that, thanks for pointing out.
But, my real point was,
is this piece of flat wire capable to transfer 6Gbit/s or it is 3Gbit/s

Mine was shipped on Jan 13 and delivered to Australia on Feb 6. I selected a cheapest postage option. I think delivery in UK should be much faster.

Seriously? From OWC? I have purchased RAM previously from them with the cheapest option and it took about 2 weeks... I guess 3 weeks isn't THAT much of a difference, but still.

I bought one and installed it in my mac mini. It can be quite a pain to remove the IR sensor. I broke it and thought my mac mini was gone as i did not know i broke the IR sensor at point in time. I thought i had to get a refurbished set to replace my 'damaged' mac mini.

I looked around the forum and found out it's a common issue with people trying to install a ssd because the IR sensor cable is very fragile. You're suppose to lift it from under the wires and not under the socket which i did.

Anyway, i installed the ssd with the data doubler and the mac mini fired up just fine. Only problem is i don't get the white light at the front of the mac mini to tell you that the mac mini is turned on. A blessing in disguise as i tend to leave the mac mini on overnight and the light can be quite distracting in a darken room when i'm sleeping.

Hi sir, thanks for that feedback! Actually quite handy - especially as nobody would know about the hidden sleep light until they actually did it themselves! Cheers.
