Re: Help,Bay Adapter of W530


Thanks Hiro!


Yes, that's the detailed specs on the support site for the Ultrabay III drive tray.  This fits W520 and W530, along with T420/T430 and T520/T530.    Looks like we just haven't updated that page to reflect the compatibility with the new models at time of this post.


Note: the T420s and T430s require a slimmer unit, and if you use the T420s or T430s bay or optical  in the other T and W's you will have a gap.
