I was told they were shipping mine but it just updated and said it
It depends on which L340-15 (L340-15API Type 81LW, L340-15API Touch Type 81LX, L340-15IRH Gaming Type 81LK, L340-15IRH Gaming Type 81TR, L340-15IWL Type 81LG or L340-15IWL Touch Type 81LH), and which L340-17 (L340-17API Type 81LY, L340-17IRH Gaming Type 81LL or L340-17IWL Type 81MO).
was on back order

Sorry. Optical Disk Drive or DVD Drive. I believe one version of the non-gaming models can have an optical disk drive. This makes a difference in the position of the hard disk drive.

Are you looking at the “Sata HDD Cable Connector Adapter for Lenovo Ideapad L340-15API L340-15IWL” on eBay? As far as I can see, the L340-15API and L340-15IWL both have Optical Disk Drives so I think this adapter wouldn't work in a model which doesn't have an ODD. Here is an image of this adapter:
Here is an image of the adapter for the L340-15IRH (which has no ODD):
Here is an image of the adapter for the L340-17IRH (which has no ODD):
The adapter on eBay doesn't match either of these.
I should mention I am not an expert. I am a new owner learning about the L340 just the same as everyone else.

Based on message 34 from Thaposto, there should be some news soon but one can always expect some delays around this holiday season. Early to mid January seems realistic.
