Far better than expectations – Designer's 2.5" SATA to SATA HDD / SSD Caddy for 12.7mm Optical Drive Reviews

posted by santyo on 05/10/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- easy to mount - work perfectly from the first start - works with almost every laptop - no need to adjust (perfect fit to CD-ROM bay)
Cons:
Only two small (really small) inconvenience: - 4 screws have a little problematic profile (the heads extend a little bit from bottom of case and can cause that whole caddy can't fit (solved with exchanging screws from laptop HHD they has flatter heads in my case) - at the back of the case are three holes for mounting "arm" (holder with screw that prevents CD-ROM to slide out from computer). They need to by slightly bigger, because the screw from original CD-ROM drive may not fit good.
Other:
The best for its price. Fits brilliantly. Works super. Actually Ubuntu on primary, Windows 8 on secondary in caddy bay - no problems at all:)
Bottomline:
After some work... It's fully useful drive that almost any laptop can handle. And for last word... Sorry for my bad English:)
