OWC Data Doubler Adds Up to 3.0TB of Hard Drive and/or SSD-Flash Storage to Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today the availability of new OWC Data Doubler DIY Bundles, available for up to 3.0TB of internal, RAID-able drive capacity for Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro models. The OWC Data Doubler gives MacBook/MacBook Pro owners the flexibility to configure their computer’s internal drive array to suit their needs: greater overall storage for up to 3.0 TB total capacity; greater data integrity by creating an internal back-up drive; or greater performance by creating a Striped RAID in Disk Utility.

This straight-forward, easy to follow DIY kit lets anybody take their existing MacBook or MacBook Pro, and install more and/or faster storage than factory stock. The Data Doubler mounting solution comes complete with the Data Doubler internal drive mount, a detailed step-by-step Mac notebook model-specific installation guide, and a five-piece toolkit. Special Bundles, that also include up to two drives and up to 3.0TB of capacity, are also available.

The OWC Data Doubler is available for Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro models, which include the following:

  • Apple MacBook 13″ 2008 to 2010
  • Apple MacBook Pro 13″ models 2009 and later (excluding 13” w/Retina)
  • Apple MacBook Pro 15″ models 2008 and later (excluding 15” w/Retina)
  • Apple MacBook Pro 17″ models 2009 and later

Here’s a sample of what thousands of OWC Data Doubler users have said:

“I’ve never found an adapter like the OWC Data Doubler that adds another hard drive to a laptop before. OWC has it going on! The OWC Data Doubler is awesome — easy to install with instructions and tools — a great product, and the only one on the market!” Robin D. – Union City, CA

“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.” Brock Rumer – Chicago, IL

Let nothing go to waste:

After purchasing a new OWC Data Doubler DIY Kit, the internal “SuperDrive” can be re-purposed as an external optical drive with the OWC SuperSlim USB 2.0 enclosure, available at a discounted price of $19.00 when purchased with Data Doubler. This lightweight, USB 2.0 bus-powered enclosure is the ideal solution for MacBook and MacBook Pro owners installing an OWC Data Doubler DIY Kit. At the same time, while enjoying up to an additional capacity in the re-purposed optical drive bay, users can install the replaced Apple SuperDrive into the OWC SuperSlim enclosure to create a fully bootable, external Plug and Play CD and DVD burning/playing solution.

Our Data Doubler Kits enable anyone to add new levels of storage capacity, performance and reliability that are simply unavailable from factory models,” said Larry O’Connor, founder and CEO of Other World Computing. “By adding a second hard drive and replacing your current internal drive you can now have up to 3.0TB (up to 3X Factory Option) of storage capacity for your MacBook or MacBook Pro.”

      I have a 13″ Late 2012 Macbook Pro Retina, I noticed after removing the bottom of the case that the SSD sits inside a small chassis that is removable. Is OWC thinking of making some form of data doubler for that as well? there is more than enough space to house a second SSD chip next to the first one. Or is there already something like that available?

    2. Vic says:

      What are the advantages of the OWC data doubler over the Opti-Bay or the various driver adapters that can be found on Amazon and eBay for much less money?

      • OWC Michael says:

        The Data Doubler is built from solid anodized aluminum, making it much sturdier (and, dare I say, is a much higher quality) than the sheet metal units that can be found elsewhere online. But don’t just take my word for it – read through a few of the customer reviews on the product. You’ll find some even went the cheap route first and came back for the quality.
