T43 with Thinkpad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter 40Y8725

2009-02-18, 9:37 AM

Hello, I woud like to know if T43 is compatible with Thinkpad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter (40Y8725), a re-seller told me that it is, but in Lenovo specifications can't find this statement.

 

Anyone can help me?

 

If so,  anyone with this configuration can share above all performance?

After my coriuos was driving me #$%&@...........

 

I decided to buy the Thinkpad Serial ATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter 40Y8725 put a 320G western digital scorpio black sata drive and try to install it in my T43.

 

It works like a charm, the only thing is that the 40Y872 comes with a plastic edge,  which makes the adapter don't fit in the ultrabay. After removing it with a plane knife fits well. Good news is that i dont have to reboot my T43 to swap to my media device.I think it should work on every TXX series model.

 

Hope this helps for anyone who wants more storage capacity in a T series model.
