NewerTech Data Doubler bracket for Mac optical bay

 



Replace your optical drive with a second drive or Solid State Drive (SSD) for 2008 to Mid 2012 Macbook, Macbook Pro

Configuration flexibility is yours when you replace your MacBook or MacBook Pro's internal SuperDrive with the OWC Data Doubler. This custom engineered blue anodized aluminum bracket with attached PCB circuit board comes ready to mount any 9.5mm tall 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drive and even Solid State Drives. Then, just install the entire assembly into a MacBook or MacBook Pro 5.25-inch optical drive bay. OWC Data Doubler makes it easy to custom design how you want your internal storage to perform. Installed drives are recognized like any other high speed SATA storage device and can be setup and partitioned using the Apple Disk Utility Program.

Our most popular upgrade using the Datadoubler is to replace the Macbook hard drive with a SSD and then use the datadoubler to reuse the old hard drive as a backup or storage device.

Please note the datadoubler is bracket only. Does not ship with the screwdriver set or an HDD or SSD. All these are sold separately.

Is this upgrade compatible with my computer?

We guarantee our memory is 100% compatible with your computer. How can we make such a bold claim? It is combination of quality product, vast industry knowledge and experience and the Upgradeable system we built to help customers find an upgrade for their specific computer.

You may have noticed our website is different from any other. It is not your typical eCommerce web shop. We do not get a list of products and categorise them, making you do all the work = which is the best upgrade? Our website is a configurator. We have taken all guess work out of buying an upgrade. Our technicians and engineers match the right memory upgrade to every computer we list. We do this in a unique way, which is the Upgradeable secret sauce. Our history and experience is in designing and manufacturing of computer components. In fact, in 1990's we were the first company to make a third party memory module in Australia at The Research Park, Bond University in Queensland. We have condensed all that experience into a system that rates a components quality. If it meets Upgradeable's stringent quality guidelines, then we list it as an available upgrade. That is why we can offer a lifetime warranty, and fast delivery. Who loses if it is not compatible? We do because we pay for the shipping charges and you get a full refund or advanced replacement!

Our goal is to delivery the right upgrade the first time. Look at our reviews, they say we deliver on what we promise.

Excellent feedback and prompt service.


Hey guys, I just wanted to share my upgradeable story with you… So firstly, customer service - if I’ve had a better customer service experience I can’t remember it - I spoke with two techs and the lady who answered the phone and you were all patient, friendly and really helpful! The drive and bracket arrived the day after I ordered it, around 11am. That was brilliant. The gear itself is all up and running. I ran some comparative time tests pre and post installation and here are the results: My system is a MBP 15” 8,2 running Yosemite. I keep it clean, regularly back up to time machine and get rid of unwanted stuff all the time. I’m fastidious with keeping my hard drive in good order. Over the past year the computer had slowed down to snail’s pace. Pro Tools was crashing and freezing regularly, Indesign was as slow as all get out and boot up times were astronomical. Turning on computer to password screen: Old Drive: 1m.46s SSD Drive: 11 seconds Password Screen to desktop: Old drive: 24 seconds SSD: 3 seconds Opening Pro Tools and opening an existing 23 track mix session with plugins: Old Drive: 2m.38s SSD: 29 seconds Opening InDesign CS6: Old Drive: 58 seconds SSD: 6 seconds I’m no statistician, but them’s good numbers in anyone’s language! Just a couple of minor things in relation to the installation process: 1) There’s an extra screw holding the optical drive on that wasn’t mentioned in the instructions. On the left hand side under a wire as you look at it per photo. Potential trap for young players 2) There was mention of a small silver cable in between the two ribbon cables - my mbp didn’t have this… 3) the screws included to mount the SSD into the bracket weren’t quite long enough. I had a couple of spares so no big deal. That’s it, thought you might like the feedback.Thanks again for all your help. This machine is integral to my livelihood so doing this was a big decision for me - thanks to you guys it was painless, easy and quick!

Lifetime Warranty

All RAM upgrades supplied by Upgradeable have a lifetime warranty.
Our definition of lifetime warranty is: If the product ceases to work at anytime, you can return it for a replacement. Simple. No if's, no but's. Our RAM will out last your computer. We have had the same warranty since year 2000. It has never varied or been modified. Our competitors have played catch up and matched our warranty but they can never match our service. We don't provide a lifetime warranty as a gimmick, it is a statement on the values of our company, our goal of exceptional customer service and the quality of the products we supply.

Five year SSD warranty (3 year OWC Aura)
Unlike RAM, an SSD has limited write cycles, so it will eventually wear out. The Crucial MX500 is rated to last 360TB of write cycles. You would have to write 200GB every day for five years to wear it out! The new warranty for the MX500 SSD is five years. Our faulty SSD return policy is to make it as simple as possible for the customer. We will replace faulty drives as soon as they are returned. Please note older Crucial drives have a 3 year warranty and some OWC Aura SSD drives we sell have a 3 year warranty. The new Aura Pro X has a 5 year warranty.

14 Day Money Back Guarantee
When we started Upgradeable, we needed to assure customers our RAM would make a difference. What if the RAM upgrade did not speed up your computer? The answer is you can return the memory for a full refund. We chose 14 days because we thought that was a reasonable time frame. We have never refused a refund that has been a reasonable time past 14 days, such as 21 days or 30 days. If you are not happy with the RAM upgrade, we don't want to make your day worse by saying no to a refund. In fact, everything we list we stock, so if you dont want it, we restock it. This is a point in difference to most Kingston resellers. They don't stock the product, they are selling from someone else's warehouse. Which is why they don't like refunds.

Our money back guarantee is about your assurance that the RAM will make a difference. If is not about how many days, it is about customer service and trust. We have had the same guarantees for 18 years because they are sustainable. We plan to be here servicing our customers for more than the next 18 years!
