Just bought a new z51 last month and I'd like to replace my Disc drive with a hard drive but I'm not sure which Caddy to get. There are several on Amazon for pretty cheap. Anyone successfully do this?

My Z51-70 works perfectly with a caddy purchased from hddcaddy.com . The drive I put in is a HGSF 1TB HTS721012A9E630 SATA3.
hddcaddy.com offer caddies meant for specific models of laptops, lenovo and others. I do not know what these special settings are, nor do i even know whether there is any real reason why they are this specific.
But it works. Installing was straightforward and everything was detected immediately. Without a Bios update.

Thank you for replying.
As it turns out, mine started working as well, after I replaced my internal hdd with the ssd I had purchased, and placed the ex-internal hdd in the caddy.
