optical drive caddy Customers Reviews

  • Does what it says on the tin

    posted by tuomashamalain

    Installing the hard drive to the chassis was a snap and the IDE-SATA interface works very reliably. Very affordable price must also be considered a pro.
    There isn't much to say about a device this simple. However, I saved a lot of money compared to some other solutions on the market.
    If you're in the market for a hard drive chassis that fits in place of your IDE optical drive, this is highly recommended. Even with the issue mentioned, the usability value is far higher than the money it costs.
  • Great revival for old notebook

    posted by smotleycrew

    This replaces PATA interface CD\DVD Rom with SATA hard disk. Useful to use cheaper in nowadays SATA HDDs(including SSDs) to provide storage for older laptops. Great build. Came a bit twisted from mail delivery. Overall no problems with installation and recognizing by the system bios and OS.
    If you plan to use it as primary, have in mind that it will be easy to fix MBR related problems, if you connect it to a desktop system and then put it back into the laptop enclosure.
    Great adapter to extend your current storage capacity, move on to SSD(do not expect big increase in performance due to bus speed limitations) or replace current old cracky PATA HDD with quiet SATA HDD drive for primary. Draws less power for twice bigger capacity than my old PATA HDD. Fan almost is not turning now after I removed the old drive and running with the enclosured drive only.
  • cheap and very useful

    fit perfect in blueray bay on notebook samsung NP550P5C, led activity is red and produces a great effect with the hole that had in the front (was blue), the faceplate fit perfect too!I put the disc inside (HDD seagate/samsung ST1000LM024) runs smooth, no problem with the speed or transfer.Build quality is adequate for the price that have.
    Not a big problem but the package also includes 6 screws. 4 of them are typical screws that are used to attach a 2.5'' disk. Those I didn't use. However, there are also 2 other screws with slim heads, which are used to better attach the HDD/SSD to the case. For this purpose there are two holes on the bottom of the case (you can see them on the second photo). When installing the drive you will have to use exactly those two screws, because the heads of the others are too large and may prevent the case from fitting in the laptop.
    Is perfect and does the job. Now I have one SSD and one HDD in my laptop and it's very fast yeah!.
  • Works on a ASUS A52J

    posted by aupovi

    Everything.For the ASUS A52:Just remove the screws (one is accesible right from the bottom of the computer, the other is hidden behind a lid in the bottom, you will have to unscrew 6+ screws) and remove the optical drive. insert the 2.5" disk and just slip everything in the hole. I just used one screw to secure the caddy, the one accessible right from the bottom, and that's enough.
    It has a blue led always on, and slightly brighter wne accessing the drive.
    Very good buy, I already ordered another one for another computer.
  • CHEAP

    posted by raislasher

    Affordable (compared to 3-5x the price elsewhere!) Easy to open package.Used it to add more storage capacity on a sony vaio laptop that has an ssd drive
    If you want to add another harddrive or SSD to your laptop with a 9.5mm optical bay, this caddy is that you need. Be sure to check the measurements before ordering!would buy many more when neededyou have to know about computers to instal it
    good and has been working for over a year
