Hi everyone,

I recently installed an SSD into my 2011 21.5" iMac and I am really happy with the speeds. I kept the original HDD in the iMac and installed the SSD behind the optical drive. Now I am hoping to install a second SSD by removing the optical drive as I never use it. I was taking a look at the OWC Data Doubler product

Does anyone know if it is compatible with the 2011 iMac as well? The product page states compatibility with 2009 and 2010 iMacs. Also I contacted OWC and they stated it would not be compatible but the representative could not give me a reason why. Im not sure why it wouldn't be compatible. Are the optical disk drives the same size in both systems?
