Z400/P400 SSD Drive Caddy?

2013-06-21, 22:13 PM

I'm looking to replace the optical drive with a caddy to fit the current hard drive alongside a new SSD for boot: does anyone know if this exists, or if one made for a different model will work? I can easily find ones for Y series Ideapads on ebay, but none for the z or p (which I believe are virtually identical in chassis? correct me if I'm wrong).

 

Any insight would be appreciated!

hi albertchang

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

This is what I would suggest, This has same dimension of your ODD which is 2.5/9.5mm

http://www.amazon.com/Universal-9-5mm-Drive-Caddy-lenovo/dp/B009RNP6RI

 

You can refer to your System maintenance manual for replacing the ODD

 

Hope this helps,

The Z400 has a SATA III port (at least in the original HDD bay, not sure
about the cd drive). Any SSD you buy will work, just pick one that best
fits your budget. Keep in mind that the hard drive bay is a 9.5mm slot, so
if you buy a 7.5mm drive, be sure that it also includes a spacer to
properly fit the bay.
