HDD Caddy for the ThinkPad R400 R500 T400 T410 T420s T420si T430 T430s T500 W500 laptop. This HDD Caddy allows you to add a second hard drive or SSD to your laptop by replacing your optical drive. It supports 2.5 inch SATA hard drives or SSD
Are you looking for a way to add more storage capacity to your laptop while keeping your laptop mobile? Then HDD Caddy is your solution. This HDD Caddy replaces the optical drive from your laptop so you can insert an extra hard drive or SSD (Solid State Drive) in your laptop. Installing doesn’t require much effort and your 2nd drive should work out of the box, so no driver or software installation is needed to get it running.
How does it work?
The optical drive from ThinkPad R400 R500 T400 T410 T420s T420si T430 T430s T500 W500 can be easily removed. HDD Caddy has the same form and function as the optical drive but instead of cd or blu-ray discs the HDD Caddy can mount one single hard drive or SSD in your laptop. Thus HDD Caddy is a great solution if you want to keep your laptop mobile and you do not want to carry external USB hard drives or sticks anymore. HDD Caddy supports 2.5 inch hard drives or SSD and (depending on your laptop) it can support SATA1, SATA3 and SATA3 transfer speeds! It is also possible to boot from the secondary hard drive in the HDD Caddy. This allows you to easily have a multi-OS boot on your laptop. Read more about what HDD Caddy is.
