Used for mid 2011 iMac SSD upgrade
Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2020
Using this converter bracket, I was able to securely install a 2.5 SSD in a 3.5 HDD bay on my mid 2011 Apple iMac. I am not that computer savvy but after watching a couple youtube videos and sleeping at a Holiday Inn Express, I decided I could take hard drive upgrade installation on myself.
This bracket is needed or not needed depending on which DIY video you watch. Some people were just using two sided tape or velcro to hold their new SSD drives where the old HDD was. While I feel those are decent solutions, I just wanted to do it right the first time with something that was made to securely hold my new Samsung SSD in place and never fall out. This is a well made and inexpensive solution to making your 2.5 SSD fit where your old 3.5 HDD was.
Along with this bracket and a Samsung SSD, I upgraded to 32GB of RAM that I purchased here on Amazon as well. The SSD and RAM upgrades have restored speed and added several years of life to my iMac for a couple hundred bucks. I think it's always nice when you can find ways to add new life or performance to older things. This bracket helped make that happen for me and my mac.
