iMac 27” i7 (Late 2009) External eSata port mod
To add to and old yet informative thread…
I know there are many methods people have used to get more performance and connectivity out these iMacs so I thought I’d contribute and share what I ended up doing.
Since my apple care is expired I decided to go ahead and do this mod. My main use is studio / audio production so this mod was geared towards those needs. (I need a dedicated Audio Drive for recording and the FW port for dedicated audio interface without daisy chaining)
I sacrificed the optical drive to gain the Sata port as others have though I decided to locate my eSata port on the rear of the iMac instead of on the bottom or having a cable protruding from the CD slot. So far it works great and total cost was around $10. Here are a few pics of the mod.
Cheers and many thanks for all the great info and tips shared here!
