Re: Legion Y520, Does it come with HDD cable and bracket?

Hi All  , 

 

Greetings. 

 

To finalize an answer to the initial query. 

 

To those machines models ordered with just the SSD , hdd bracket may not be available from point of purchase.

As there was no HDD to hold similar to cases of y500 missing bracket and cable but port/cable connection is present for Y520.

Part number for the hdd bracket 5B40N00288 (HDD Bracket L 80WK W/Foil) 

For US Lenovo Encompass (parts retailer) this would be available for order. 

Else DIY customization for the frame maybe a simple option to simple secure the screws in place.

 

Regards

If you bought your set with an SSD bundle alone (same as me), the bracket is NOT included. You can DIY however or order the said part from Lenovo

Unbelivable, if that is the case.

How can they not include the casing for the HDD installation.

 

Aren't there other 2.5" brackets that would fit in?

The bracket is not instock in SG so I did DIY bracket cut from a biscuit tin just to screw the HD in place. I doubt if bracket from other makers will match the screw position.

Re: Legion Y520, Does it come with HDD cable and bracket?

Im on a trip right now. Here's a rough sketch of what I did. You can use a thin cardboard as mockup pattern. Wrap it an inch to the HD and fold to form an open-box.  Mark the screw holes then unfold. Now you have a pattern to follow.  Paste the cardboard to the biscuit tin then cut the outline using a kitchen scissors. Punch the holes using a nail then fisnish the sharp edges with a file. I got those 4-tiny screws from an ageing toys. Hope this helps

Re: Legion Y520, Does it come with HDD cable and bracket?

Thank you so much for the sketch.

 

On the other hand, what is going on with Lenovo?! This is a simple part that any machine shop can mass produce. How can it run out of stock for more than a few days? Is there _nobody_ from Lenovo taking care of part supplies?

 

As of today 06/03/2017,  on www.encompassparts.com, the official part supplier for Lenovo in US,

part #5B40N00288 shows

this item is currently out of stock. 08/10/2017 or 68 days.

And we're back...

Move delayed but still coming
