Looks like it would go right in there with no issue

Cool!

 

Tiger Direct seems to have it a little cheaper http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7756554&SRCCODE=WEBGOOPA&cm_mmc_o=mH4CjC7BBTkwCjCV1-CjCE&gclid=CP2g9re82LgCFe1DMgodDkEATA

 

Noticed on Amazon the Silverstone Tek 12.7mm Height 2.5-inch SATA HDD/SSD Caddy Conversion Tray for Laptop (TS09) for on $12!  It has a regular SATA power connector though ............

The only issue with these that I can see is they are 12.5 mm tall. I think the opening on the new MS Gen 8 is for the smaller 9.5 mm ODD.

(blush) I knew I should have read thru the Service Guide a "little" closer -- 9.5 vs 12.5 -- might require a dremel  :wacko:

And designed for the Lenovo T400.

 

Doesn't matter, its still SATA and 9.5mm and has all the standard screw holes. The only addition is the small plastic nub on the back that's attached with 2 screws
