Useful if you need a 2nd HDD in your laptop – 2.5" SATA to SATA HDD / SSD Caddy for 12.7mm Optical Drive Reviews

Pros:
Cheap, does what it should, clean-looking, running fine. I currently have no problems running a 1tb HDD in this along with my SSD. Similar products elsewhere are extremely overpriced.
Cons:
The only problem I had was when I messed up on removing the DVD drive cover and I ended up gluing the cover on so it would stay on. Otherwise, all I could say is that the price could possibly be lower - it's only a few pieces of thin metal and plastic, and a small circuit to manage the connectors.
Other:
It is much lighter than I thought it would be, but it doesn't really matter as it does what it should - mount a second drive safely and neatly in the DVD drive slot.
Bottomline:
Buy it if you want to mount a second HDD on your laptop - it's by far the cheapest anywhere online.
