Just to make sure I'm getting this right -- is this thing supposed to fit in the taller bays without the dreaded 3mm gap? In other words, does this mean that I won't need to buy a 3rd party thing or the insanely expensive one that comes with RAID-enabled systems? :)

$12 beats $60+

 

You might want to have a look at the other thread on the topic of Ultrabay disk caddys. As I mention there, I have the original Lenovo caddy, and just got this 12.7mm in. It is better that the Lenovo for 1/5th the price, but hey, it's your money.

Took them long enough to get one that fits properly. I wonder how many sales they lost to people buying properly fitting ones from elsewhere (which is what I did)?
