    I ordered both because I wasn't sure which one to keep, I still don't. I love the look and design of the Maxconnect but it seems a few people have had some issues with holes lining up. The NewmodeUS is simplistic and just fits right in but only has one screw to secure it, the rest is done with pressure. The reviews on that have been fantastic. Since I'm putting an SSD in the bay, weight is not really going to be an issue. I have the optical bay removed and I ready to do the install but I want to do it once and not open it up again. Any suggestions?

    -no problems with the newmodeus in my 2011 17" CTO MBP

    -i find it does fit snugly and for my needs (as i do not take my laptop out much) it works absolutely fine

    try both and see which config. you are happier with

    I'd suggest doing a dry run to see which you prefer. If it's too close to call, go with the cheaper one.

    No experience with the Maxconnect, but the newmodeus caddy works perfectly. Don't worry about the screws - even with no screws, once the notebook is closed it won't move at all.
