No. It is too thick. It is 15mm and you need 9.5mm

I didn't want to take the chance on it not fitting or putting all my eggs in a 2TB drive and opted for 2x 1TB drives.

 

However, i measured the ultrabay and the hdd bay clearance is around 15mm so it could work?

I will wait until i've got one physically available to test however.

That is true, but the normal hadr drive is 9.5mm. There are also 12.5mm drives, but I have not seen any of those for a few years
