MCE OptiBay for Unibody Kit Review

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2012-10-01

MCE OptiBay is an adapter that allows us to replace the SuperDrive with an extra storage drive like a HDD up to 1TB or a high performance SSD. The necessary tools are supplied inside the box and if the installation steps are followed correctly, users shouldn't encounter any difficulties when performing the transplant.
