ThinkPad P71 hard drive bay adapter

2017-05-21, 6:40 AM

I am planning to purchase the new ThinkPad P71, but I would like to replace the default optical drive with an extra HDD. Is the Ultrabay Drive Adapter III (P/N 43N3412) the correct accessory to do this? I cannot find mention to the exact part number to use in the user manual currently available from site.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Solved! See the solution

Hi Andrea,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding Hard Drive Adapter for ODD Bay for ThinkPad P71

This is P/N 4XH0L67917 used for ThinkPad P70 and I guess both system specifications & dimensions are almost identical so it should work fine.

You can also try with aftermarket Adapters which is much cheaper like this one

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Glad :smileyhappy: to hear that your query has been solved. Also while purchasing aftermarket parts keep in mind for good return policies & do visit Lenovo Forums for further queries.

 

Cheers,
