Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
It allows you to replace odd ODD of your laptop to something more practical: SDD or HDD. Decent build quality Ships with screws Usage instructions are on item itself
Cons:
HDD fixing might be insufficient. Screws hold only one side of HDD. You will need to cover backside of laptop with something.
Other:
On my HP Pavilion dv6 ODD SATA port was only 3Gbit/s. So I have to put SSD in place of HDD which uses 6Gbit/s port. Adds flexibility to your laptop.
Bottomline:
This is nice alternative to having HDD in external enclosures. It allows greater mobility and performance.
