    There's a photo when I kept it in the HDD bay to update the firmware first.

    Used the $20 2.5" caddy instead of Optibay, works great!

    Re-routed the home folder in advanced User settings, copied all the data using Carbon Copy Cloner.

    Also got a $13 sata external for the SuperDrive, works well too.

    Man this computer flies, and it is whisper quiet. LOVE IT!

    If you have any questions, ask away!

    So you currently have the SSD in the optibay with a regular HD in the main Hard drive bay?

    That's what I'm planning on doing. =]

    Yep it's fantastic! Recommend it over the Momentus XT (I had that too, read that thread) .

    Good for you! I'm sure there is no contest between the X25 and Momentus XT. Personally I'm holding out for a reasonable priced 200GB+ X25 then I'm dumping platters completely.

    I've got the Intel X-25M 160 GB G1 in my i7 but if this OWC SSD drive works properly I'll be swapping it out for that and it may return in the form of a bay instead of the Optical drive.
