I just installed a SATA III SSD (Samsung EVO 850 1 TB) into my MBP late 2011 17” optical drive bay with the Highfine data doubler ($8.99 on Amazon). It works like a clock so far - it’s been a week of booting from the optical drive at SATA III speeds. All discussions say this is impossible. It’s not! I’m getting 450 MB/s write and 500 MB/s read. The word on the street (which is apparently not correct in my case or the Highfine case) is that the optical drive bay can only handle SATA II (3 Gb/s = 375 GB/s). Obviously with my read/write speeds above, I'm connected at SATA III speeds.

Here's the link to the Amazon Caddy:
