    it's been a while since I ordered this one. I find it a little expensive but it sure is useful to revive an old 2007 mbp with secondary hard disk space. I would recommend you this to upgrade your old mbp's

    Pros: works out of the box. now my laptop has an ssd and a hard disk in it. Cons: none at the moment, still working as this review is written. Buy this if you need to expand the capacity of your laptop.

    Fits my laptop (old Acer 2920Z) perfectly. Screws included to secure SSD in caddy, plus a plastic bumper also to ensure it won't move. None (apart from slightly difficult to remove), but plan to keep installed so not an issue :) After purchasing an SSD this is a cheap and effective way to add to... Read more

    - works - fits even 7mm slim hard drives - the hard drive fits really good, there is nearly no moving or shacking parts Cheap (as it is, but i knew i was buying a cheap item) build quality: - the metal bends easily - the front bezel of my old DVD wouldn't fit caddy (esthetic issue) - easily but a...

    Unfortunately, after serving me for more than 8 years, my Fujitsu-Siemens S7010's IDE HDD finnaly cracked. There were many solution to my problem: IDE to SD-card, IDE to CF-card, SDD, USB flash, etc. But by far the ceapest (for me) was this: a SATA caddy! By chance I had a SATA HDD to spare, a is...

    This replaces PATA interface CD\DVD Rom with SATA hard disk. Useful to use cheaper in nowadays SATA HDDs(including SSDs) to provide storage for older laptops. Great build. Came a bit twisted from mail delivery. Overall no problems with installation and recognizing by the system bios and OS. Hard... Read more

    Best investment I've made for my laptop so far. It fits perfectly in my Toshiba A200. I have a 160 GB HDD that I'm using with it, but I'm sure that it supports larger drives.

If you are buying this for you SSD drive take in to account that basically this caddy have ATA speed (as -... Read more

    Cheap, easy way to upgrade with a fast SATA SSD/HDD your old-fashioned (equipped with PATA/IDE drives) laptop computer. SATA/PATA converter is onboard and native, so just plug it in to the ODD bay and use. This way you can't use your ODD, not really a cons if you don't need it. My sister's old up... Read more
