T420s SSD and Ultra Bay Caddy

Does 9.3mm and 7mm SATA 3 SSD can fit into 9.5mm Ultra Bay Caddy for T420s..??

i am planning to buy an SSD.

My requirements : 80GB space, SATA III 6Gb/s (Sq.Read : >500MB/s & Sq.Write : >450MB/s)

it would be better if it is a 7mm thick..

So any better choices we had in SSD for T420s..??

Both the 7mm and 9.5 mm will fit in the Lenovo drive caddy - that is the tray with the soft rubber rails. Also, both will fit in the Ultrabay III adapter.

 

The caddy and the adapter are two different items, but the caddy, with drive, and rubber rails removed will also fit in the UB3 adapter.

 

If you add a SSD drive, it would be best in the regular drive bay with caddy, and then put your HDD in the Ultrabay 3 adapter.

Search in ebay - seller (or compny name) is Nimitz. I'm using it with T430s without any problems.

I don't know about India but if Hong Kong is OK I've had excellent resuts with eBay seller, parts-wholeseller, (http://myworld.ebay.ca/parts-wholeseller/) who sells Ultrabay Adapters for ~$10, shipping included.
