The perils of buying a used computer – yes, I am too cheap or just not rich enough to buy a new Mac Pro – is that sometimes you find that you inherited “interesting” fixes.

Like this SSD mount:

mac-ssd-2 mac-ssd-1


Yes, that’s electrical tape and no, I don’t agree with this special mounting method. At least they did put some electrical tape between the case of the SSD and the case of the DVD drive.



I guess this is one way of saving $20, which is what the correct 2.5″ SSD mounting frame for a recent-ish (2009/2010) Mac Pro costs:

A 2.5" SSD in the correct mounting frame for a Mac Pro
SSD in the correct mounting frame

One thought on “I guess that’s one way of mounting an SSD”
