works as expected but have to modified – 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:
cheap and work as expected. ship no issue simple to use
Cons:
original product has an issue, when used in ASUS laptop it couldn't go to sleep or shutdown. Always hung while try to turn off. After disconnected "Manufacturer diagnostic pin" (3rd left pin on the connector to motherboard when look from outside) from ground, no more issue. The modification needs skill, not recommended for normal user but if you know soldering that's easy.
Other:
build quality just soso, metal is too thin
Bottomline:
it works as expected (after modification)
