"First of all, if you are thinking of doing a swap to an SSD... stop thinking and do it. The performance gains are awesome. I've used other converters as well, but the OWC kit is a step above. More care went into the engineering and the fit in the computer and for the drive are more precise. Plus having the right tools included is great."
