Optical drive caddy/bezel for use with Panasonic (Matshita) or Hitachi.LG optical drives in all late-2009 and 2010 and 2011 models of the 21.5" & 27" aluminium Intel iMac. There are small, manufacturer-specific tabs along the front edge of the bezel slot. This bezel can be used with other drive brands by trimming these off though we cannot recommend this.
This bezel screws onto the chassis and holds the optical drive in place. The unusually large distance between the edge of the optical drive slot and the iMac casing means that the iMac requires an optical drive that grabs the disk at least 25mm out from the drive. Most optical drives do not (typically 20-22mm) and so only a very few models of drive will function in the aluminium iMacs and Apple had modified versions of some drive models produced for them to allow for this.
