Ultrabay Hard Drive caddy Y500

Well, I noticed the price, 189.99...I talked to a sales rep on chat and said I could not buy just the hard drive caddy. Lenovo, I am very dissapointed in you. How dare you sell the caddy and the HD at that price. You claim we could buy the accessories, yet we can not purchase a caddy seperately. Way to go...I hope there are plans to change this, extremely dissapointed. Mis-leading your customers like this, we should have had more information.

Re: Ultrabay Hard Drive caddy Y500

hi iamtheecho,

 

Sorry to hear that you were not able to buy that product directly from Lenovo. My guess is that the HDD and the HDD caddy are bundled and are not sold separately.

 

But since you have a 9.5mm tray-in Ultrabay ODD, you can buy this HDD caddy as an alternative:

 

LotFancy New 2.5" /9.5mm (SATA) 2ND HDD HARD DISK DRIVE Caddy/Adapter

 

 

Hope this helps.

I ordered this caddy based on your recommendation, from the link you provided.

 

It does not work. The connector is not compatible with the internal connector of the laptop (Y500). Please stop recommending this product to people.

Re: Ultrabay Hard Drive caddy Y500

Will this ultrabay work on the Lenovo IdeaPad Y500?

Re: Ultrabay Hard Drive caddy Y500

I know it's a really long time since you posted your question, but I have used this caddy for a long time already:

It works fine, just be really really carefull switching the front around from your DVD/BR drive to the caddy.
