    Kinda scared...

    Very nice! I've been toying with the idea on and off for a while now...the one thing that scares me is honestly the speeds of the two bays. I was under the impression the main HDD bay ran on SATA III while the optical bay was limited to II.

    Let me know if you have any insight to this as I have a 13" 2012 MBP that I would love to do this with (along with 16 GB of RAM).

    Both bays run on SATA 2 (3Gbps)

    400-500-ish. Pretty god for a four year old machine.

    Sounds good!

    I did some digging and it appears my mid 2012 MacBook Pro supports SATA 3 in both bays! Definitely going to try this.

    Definitely worth it if you really want to keep the machine. I want to future proof it as much as I can because I'm not upgrading until it turns unusable. Threw in 8GB ram too. Gonna go up to 16 once ram prices go down.
