    I just read a blog post on OWC suggesting that even the 15" models with SATA 3 enabled in the optical bay do not work correctly with 6.0Gb SSD drives.

    Anyone with empirical evidence to the contrary? Or to confirm?

    The OWC Blog article referenced above. Depressing, I was planning to buy a newer 15" to get 6/6.

    The 15" has reliable 6G in the main bay. Even though OWC says they have yet to find a reliable 6G optibay, mine works while my main bay doesn't (I'm pretty sure I'm one of the first to be successful with it in a 17" or 15" model's optibay). It's very possible that you could find one, but the odds are stacked against you.

    So you have one working......
    I am putting a 6G in my main bay, and thinking of just putting a 3G in the optibay to avoid the headaches....
