HDD Caddy for HDD in Z50-70?

Hi everyone, I recently purchased the Z50-70 laptop and so far I love it! I feel it could be a little bit faster with a solid state drive, however.  I have a 250GB 840 Evo I can throw in (with a caddy for the 1TB HDD that's already installed), but from what I've researched I can't have a 1TB HDD in the CD drive slot, but I'd rather not put the SSD there, because it wouldn't perform at full speed and would completely defeat the purpose of that drive.  I guess what I'm asking for is the maximum capacity the CD drive slot will allow for a HDD caddy?

 

Thanks!

Gage Henry

I just put the sshhd in the caddy and the SSD on it's place. All works great and very fast. No problems.

The SSHD was a 1TB at least? I'm looking to try and get the full speeds from the SSD in the main hard drive slot.

Re: HDD Caddy for HDD in Z50-70?

hi Gage,

 

cici2 from this thread has a working 256GB SSD and 1TB+8GB SSHD in his Z50-70 after BIOS update so it's possible that the ODD can take up to 1TB by using an HDD caddy.

 

Here's the link to the BIOS:

BIOS UPDATE FOR WINDOWS  LENOVO Z40-70, Z50-70
