T61: Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter II

The product page for this does not list the T6x series...however the 2 customer reviews are from people claiming to use it with a T61.

 

Now either the product page isn't listing all the models, or the 2 customer reviews are misplaced.

 

From another page at Lenova list to T61 accessories I see a product listed that sounds pretty much the same but without the "II" part. Is that a different product, one that does the same thing but for the T61's bay vs a T400 etc bay?

 

Can someone clarify this?

 

Frankly I wish the pages on the Lenovo site were clearer / organized with regard to product compatibility. It doesn't need to be this hard! I wonder how many sales Lenovo has lost due to customers who can't figure out if a given accessory will work on their model.

Re: ThinkPad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter II with T61

I best guess would that the T61 doesn't support the Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter II  but only the Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter (mark I basically)

the T61 is probably still based on the PATA/IDE interface and not serial ata.

I could be wrong, though.

If i'm right, then make sure you buy the correct 2.5" hard disk.

The thinkpad Serial ATA hdd adapter is for the newer thinkpad, T400, T500, W500, R400, R500, etc.

 

It uses a serial interface to connect to the thinkpad ultrabay, rather than the PATA interface that the T61, T60, T4x, R6x, etc uses.
