I checked the forum and it seems Lenovo still does not have a 12.7mm caddy for the W510 so I can add a second HD. Or is there any news?
Also I see recommondations for the 'Chinese' caddies but it seems despite the fact that they are 12.7mm they might still be lose. Anyways, can somebody provide some experience with these.

I bought the official bay from Lenovo and was disappointed when I figured there is no way to set both hard drives in a RAID configuration? I might have completely ignored something but I couldn't find any other option other than IDE / AHCI in the BIOS and there is no Intel Storage Configuration Tool popping while booting either..

Unfortunately i bought the original Lenovo caddy and now i have a empty gap between the caddy and the ultrabay... (angry)
Well i think i will find a solution to build a cover to plug it...
Yeah, me too. I hate the gap it creates.
As a matter of fact, once I lifted my laptop and accidentally pulled up on the caddy. For a split second, it disconnected the drive and windows started throwing messages at me. I wish the description for the caddy would have been more detailed.

w510user, can you share where you bought your 3rd party caddy and what brand/model it was? I won't take it as a recommondation but just would like to know as I have only found one supplier so far.

I found hard drive caddies on eBay... the 12.7mm variety. LENOVO ships the 9.5mm caddy, and when installed they leave a huge gap at the top of the drive bay. I ordered two (2) of the 12.7mm caddies from eBay... but they haven't arrived yet.,
