Other World Computing has just launched an upgraded OWC “Data Doubler” Kit, which can now add a new 1.5 TB drive , and is compatible with 2011 and later Mac minis. Bare kits or additional capacity bundles are also available.
What it does: this DIY kit enables Mac mini owners to add a second internal hard drive and install up to two drives for up to 3.0 TB of storage, or add a high-performance solid-state drive (SSD) to complement (or fully replace) the existing internal factory drive.
Why it’s cool: this kit is ideal for Mac mini owners who are running out of storage space or want to improve performance with an OWC SSD. It lets you add a second 9.5mm or smaller 2.5″ SATA hard drive or solid-state drive (sold separately). Adding one of these drives to an internal bay also takes advantage of higher speeds and increased performance of the Mac mini internal storage connections. With this kit, users can enjoy almost instantaneous booting and application launches along with an incredible boost to overall system and application performance.
What it includes:
- All drive-mounting components (custom flex cable, screws, and grommets)
- All necessary tools
- Installation guide
- Step-by-step online installation video
- Or, customers can use our Apple Mac mini Installation Service and have OWC “Do It For You”
