Gets the job done – Designer's 2.5" SATA to SATA HDD / SSD Caddy for 12.7mm Optical Drive Reviews

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

Pros:
It's cheap and pretty easy to install. The only difficulty that I've faced was taking off my optical drive's front panel without breaking it.
Cons:
The screw holes might not perfectly match your laptop's layout. The build quality could be better but it shouldn't break easy given that you'll most likely not have to tinker with this item for years after it has been installed.
Other:
This is a great alternative to carrying an external HDD and all it's cables. On the other hand if you have to use an optical drive often then an external one will be needed.
Bottomline:
Great product for a great price.
