Re: P50 Hard disk drive cable

2016-02-29, 16:39 PM

Any updates in terms of an FRU for the HDD cage or possibly a HDD cage + cable kit yet? Thanks to some helpful information from several users here, we've arrived at a point where we know exactly WHAT is needed, but still no word from Lenovo on how to actually obtain said parts.

 

The 00UR835 cable is still listed by IBM Parts Europe with a 6 week delivery time.

Is there any update when we can expect the cables to be available? Four weeks ago, I've ordered a cable from a German web shop called „ok1“. At that time, they claimed 2–4 weeks delivery time, but that was obviously too optimistic. Now their website list the delivery estimate as mid of April. Is this a realistic estimate backed by someone at Lenovo?

Same here, in Europe the cable is still listed as 3-6 weeks delivery time with IBM Parts Services, no word on an FRU for the HDD bracket. 

 

Currently using my Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD in a cheapo USB enclosure...

The update I heard from the team is that the kit is still in process at this point.  I know it seems easy, but there's a tremendous amount of legwork that goes into putting an option kit like this together.  I don't have any official target dates yet.

I understand that you're just the messenger here psuturtle and appreciate your updates, but I don't get why there needs to be a "tremendous amount" of legwork.

 

The P50 is in production, the parts exist and I've yet to see someone here requesting a specific kit. Most of us just need FRU 00UR835 and an FRU for the accompanying bracket, which I'm sure exists already.

 

I know for a fact IBM Parts Benelux has the hdd cable listed in their database ready to order, but they keep quoting a 6 week delivery time. 

 

There have to be people at Lenovo whose responsibility it is to take care of these basic supply chain issues and can at least shed some light on the vague 6 week delivery time? Are those people even aware this issue exists?

Oh they are certainly aware, and I agree this could/should have absolutely been handled better up front.  As I understand it, there are quite a few safety/certification issues that are being chased at this point.  It's not an issue with creating parts, but rather getting everything lined up to be able to sell them together as options, and to do so in all necessary geographies.  As I said, there's a lot of gruntwork that goes on behind the scenes to make this happen that most people aren't aware of.

WIthout these cables no P50 fulfills its own specifications so it should be included when you buy P50 same way as for example battery or power adapter...
