Fits most PC laptops & also 2012 older gen Macbooks.

I upgraded my notebook HDD to an SSD and then used this item to add my original HDD back to my notebook in place of the DVD drive. It fitted into my Acer notebook perfectly. I removed the DVD drive bezel and it fitted onto this unit withno modification needed.

NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE!!!!!
This unit works great. IF YOU GET HIGH CPU USAGE AFTER INSTALL, it is because there is a very tiny switch you need to flick on the device to prevent Windows from thinking the optical drive bay is open. It is on the side of the device, in a little hole. I used a small flat screwdriver to flick the switch.
This is only in Windows 8/10 and was only introduced in laptops after around 2011 it seems. Sorry for the all caps, I wanted to catch your attention because I was surprised and actually spent some time before I figured this out. Read below link for more info.

Easy installation, perfect product and great price point. Same day delivery helped a lot for when I was in a pinch with my MacBook.

Getting over 30mbs over this interface
Using on a Lenovo W540 fits perfectly and having both SSD and SSHD working perfectly

Easy installation, works great. Highly recommended if you need to expand laptop storage. Who uses an optical drive in 2017 anyways?

Getting it to work is hard but when it finally works it does its job great.
If your laptop at first doesn't recognize the HDD in the bracket dont stress follow these steps.
AT YOUR OWN RISK
This is totally at your own risk and is specifically useful if you switched to SSD and the drive going into the caddy was your old "C:// DRIVE".
Reboot laptop and go into Bios. Confirm that the HDD is showing on there ( even if windows didnt see it, it should show on the Bios)
- If the HDD in the bracket has info on you want to keep backup everything first before continuing.
- Go into windows and press (WINDOWS BUTTON + R) and type Diskpart.exe.
- This will open a Command prompt window for Disk Part
- type in ( LIST DISK ) and identify the disk (be carefull tripple check that the disk is the right one they are usually labeled DISK 0, Disk 1, etc.
- *** Confirm stuff on disk is backed up and confirm that the RIGHT DISK IS CHOSEN
- in DiskPart type the following "select disk #" # being the disk you chose and press enter
- then type "clean" press enter
- then type "create partition primary" press enter
- then type "activate" press enter
- then type "format fs-ntfs quick" and press enter
- then type "assign letter=#" with # being the Drive letter you choose and press enter
And now restart your computer. Drive will now be in your windows view able and use full enjoy.

Excellent Quality, with windows 10, plug and play.
Orico Products are top quality at such competitive pricing

The bay works well and has a good build quality.
My only complaint would be that the screws to fasten the drive in place are very small and I struggled to find a screwdriver that would fit. Including a small disposable one would be great.
Warren, South Africa. 3 August 2017
Wow. This is the second product I have purchased from Orico and I am very impressed with there quality. The caddy's physical engineering is of high quality and precision including the screws. Product was well packaged and the instruction were easy to follow even though I did not need them. Plugged it in and had no issues. Great product from a great company.

works like a charm..no hassles
Erik, South Africa. 29 April 2017
Works like a charm! Recommended to my friends. I added an old 120GB laptop HDD. If at first your laptop does not pick it up (like mine did), make sure you completely wipe the HDD that you want to add and that the partition table is correct for your OS.

does its jib well and easy to install
Doep, South Africa. 27 February 2017
Works great now BUT: I had to do a modification for it to work in my HP ProBook.
Laptop would not shut down with the extra drive installed.
You can find the modification instructions here: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/hp-elitebook-8560p-wont-shutdown.655065/
It worked 100% to solve the shutdown problem.
David, South Africa. 14 March 2017
Does exactly what it says :) Also comes in with little built in screw driver. Doesn't have a DVD-Rom drive cover/front, but that's perfectly fine because you can use your existing one from your optical drive.
Conrad, South Africa. 6 October 2017
For other buyers, take note that older laptops require a 12.8mm cradle, which is hard to find, the 9mm won't go in as is (it is at a slight angle due to thickness variations so the connectors don't line up), I simply cut off the side 'wing', remounted the securing tab, installed a spacer and it went in nicely. I works perfectly! Having my old 1TB drive in my laptop far out weighs the bit of effort of doing this mod. If you have a newer laptop with 9mm slot it will slip straight in with no effort.

Fits in both my Dell laptops nicely.
