    For those of you using an optibay caddy from eBay, what link speeds are you getting?

    I ordered this one, but read that another eBay brand is linking at 1.5 gigabit - which I don't want, as my SSD will be hooked up to it.

    If this appears to be common, I'll save myself the trouble and will order another brand now in advance.

    Thanks, that gives me some hope that mine might be too. Although it would be great if someone else also happened to have the same one to confirm.

    Optibays link at whatever speed the optical bus is. They are nothing more then an extension cable.
