Are there adapters out there to fit this in?
Any adapter that can fit 2.5" drives into the Mac Pro will work.
the icy dock 3.5 to 2.5 adaptors are perfect, OWC have them, I have two, just waiting for my Gen2's to arrive on Sunday
Have they started selling the Gen2s again?
As far as I know the suppliers are supposed to be getting restocked next week. Which is kind of dumb considering the *bug* that caused the recall affected like 1% of users and was probably fixable via firmware update.
Reminds me of the Seagate 1.5TB issue which also only affected some of the people using RAID, and also fixable w/firmware.
People are still bashing Seagate for this, nearly a year later. Intel made a good choice avoiding a debacle.
Drives used in non-RAID setups were having problems, as was the ES.2 line (enterprise RAID models) did as well (search boot of death). It wasn't uncommon at all, unfortunately.
Seagate deserved the damage they got over that mess IMO. Perhaps it will motivate them to make sure they don't release such crap in the future.
Are brackets for the Early 09 model Mac Pro available?
When looking at OWC I see brackets for the 08 and earlier but not the 09 models. Apple changed the SATA connections with the update this year.
I used Maxupgrades' old version for the 2008 Mac Pro. They now have a bracket for the 2009 model:
What about putting the SSD in the 2nd optical drive bay. Lloyd Chambers (digglloyd) and MacPerformance Guide suggested that.
A lot of people stick a pair of them in the optical bay.
