T440p adapter for 2nd hard drive?

I have a T440p with an optical drive.  Will a hard drive installed in an adapter in that bay perform at the same rate as the primary internal hdd?

 

Thanks!

Yes, but think carefully before you commit to that, especially if you want to use a platter drive and not an SSD.

 

HDD in the optical bay have two downsides:

1.  They make noise.

2.  They make heat.

 

There's no efficient way to exhaust waste heat from that bay and it will come up through the keyboard.

 

Better idea:  get a large SSD and keep the optical drive.

Thanks for the info - in my case I already have a primary SSD I will be installing a secondary SSD.
