    Hello everyone,

    After reading about SSD's the past few months I've decide to take the plunge and purchase one for my 15" MacBook Pro 2010. I've also read a little about using an Optibay in place of the SuperDrive for extra storage. I found the Optibay below on eBay and was wondering if its okay to purchase from eBay or if I should be looking else where?

    Any help or advice would be really appreciated.

    Cheers! :)

    It would only cost you £11.45 to find out... :D

    Thats exactly what I figured, the price tag is small so its worth chancing it! I've ordered it, £11.45 plus shipping (which will take 2-3 weeks)! I'll report back on the Optibay once its arrived!

    Cheers! :)

    Fair enough, I guess. When I looked at the listing is showed a free shipping to my location and I did not specifically check if that would be different for Denmark. And I am, unfortunately, unfamiliar with the tax laws there; here there would be no tax on ordering/receiving the device.
