    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Works perfectly for adding a second HDD in the BD bay on an Asus N53SV laptop. Has a nice blue stand by led and it turns red when there is disk activity (Although the blue one doesn't ever turn off). The included screw driver coms in handy.
    Cons:
    When you attach the front panel of the optical drive to the HDD case it does get loose easily. I had to tape it to the HDD case...

    posted by dragongbr on 11/21/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Fits perfectly Dell Inspirion 15R Special Edition (7520). Easy to install. The 4 screws keeps the HDD in place without move, even if you just use 2 screws.
    Cons:
    Didn't come with the soft part do put between the HDD and the case. The screwdriver that came with the Caddy is not good, I adv...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It fits perfect in the DVD-RW Slot. You have 4 side screws, and another 4 to fix the HDD very good. You have to take out the front panel from the DVD if you don't want to looks a little bit worse. The acces time is very fast, only at the first acces it's a ...
    Cons:
    My product didn't come with a plastic or something to fill up the emty space between de HDD and the Caddy, but it comes with sc...

    Perfect. Easy to use.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The faceplate is removable and easy to change from your laptop but it seems to be difficult to remove the faceplate again. It has the screws included. It fits perfectly.
    Cons:
    Maybe if you have to change the faceplate again it is going to be difficult and maybe you have to disassembly the whole unit to...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    A very good price/quality ratio for this useful caddy. I added a second HDD on my Toshiba Satellite laptop. Just unscruwed the 4 integrated screws on the caddy self and inserted my second HDD, screwed in back. Plug and play (had to reboot my computer, howev...
    Cons:
    I just installed it, so I don't have any cons for the moment.

    Super good!

    posted by absinthertp on 03/14/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Super cheap, it works as well as the more expensive one you can buy on ebay or in-store locally. The good point is that it is exactly the same thing! It is well built, it has the status led builted in, which is a good feature.
    Cons:
    None at all, I cannot think of a con or a bad point for this product, except maybe the fact that it could have been even cheape...

    Good quality, fits correctly and works :-)

    posted by asemerdjiev on 01/25/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I bought two of these cases. Both were of good quality. I used them to install HDDs in the place of the optical drive of a laptop, but they should also fit a SSD drive. The HDD fits nicely in the case. The packaging also includes some screws and a small pl...
    Cons:
    When you attach the front panel of the optical drive to the HDD case there are no problems. However, if you later decide to rem...

    Pros:
    Nice plactic blister package, anti-scratch protective film for the device which is easy to remove... Fits perfectly and functions well. Great build quality and affordable price. All 4 screws fit my SSD like a charm! Lightning read-write speed (no difference...
    Cons:
    For some reasons the blue activity LED doesn't turn off. It doesn't distract but seems strange. No front panel included (not ac...
