Common Encounter: Hard Drive in Optical Bay - Good or Bad?

Text:

The question I get all the time, that I don't know the answer to, is whether or not it's a good idea to insert a hard drive into an optical drive bay to achieve more space, using an optical drive bay adapter from NewerTech.

I'm Seeking feedback: is it a good good idea? Bad idea? Slower than the drive bay? Same speed?

Why not just toss a Samsung 1TB drive in your Mac and rejoice? :)
