You can but not out of the box. In order to put a SSD into an iMac that isn't a 27" or a 2011 21.5" then you need a optibay. This replaces your super drive with a SSD so you loose the use of the drive but you get a SSD. This allows you to have your standard HD with an SSD. If you want to find on here is a link to one that OWC sells that is relatively easy to install.

I disagree. I have put a few SSDs into iMacs of various years, 2009s are pretty easy. What you need is a 2.5->3.5 adapter. I'd recommend the Icy Dock, others may not line up correctly. Later models may have issues with the fans and sensors, but not the 2009s.

maccentric - Did you look at the date of this question and its answer? This is a very old entry and things have changed. I would recommend going with a SSDH (hybrid HD) vs a straight swap out of the HD to a SSD. Thats not to say SSD's are bad (far from it!) its a matter of costs and what most people want is to have all of their files internal to the system so they need deep storage too.

Good catch, looks like I misread the original post. I was responding to the sentence "In order to put a SSD into an iMac that isn't a 27" or a 2011 21.5" then you need a optibay." This is true only if you wish to retain the original HDD, which was the case, but as I said, I misread the somewhat awkwardly worded original post.

That said, prices for 512GB SSDs are getting near $200 these days and will continue to fall. Considering the speed increase and reliabilty of SSDs vs HDDs, I am finding it harder to justify the cost savings of HDDs lately.

I'm saying SSHD is the way to go getting a SSD TB drive is still too expensive. Most people go for a 1TB as a baseline today. Frankly, a SSHD is dam close to the same speed of a straight up SSD.

Guy, just found this thread today. SSDs are pretty cheap now. I've got a Sammy 850 EVO I'd like to get into my 2009 24" iMac. What is the best 2/5"-3.5" adaptor to use?

Thanks!
