Re:ST50 hard drive install

It is proprietary design, only purpose to force purchase of inflated hard drives.  They did the same thing for the SATA power for those drives.  You need a proprietary cable. and Lenovo refuses to sell either of them.    Like you said, a $100 identical hard drive is $450 from Lenovo and includes the $10 bracket available from Ebay, AND  YOU WILL ALSO NEED a $3 power cable , search amazon or Ebay for "Lenovo 4 pin to sata power cable".     

 

BTW, I've never seen a Dell server that comes with drive carriages, but they do use standard SATA power connectors on the power supply, they use the same tactics to sell regular hard drives for 3 or 4 X the MSRP.  Unethical, but not Illegal.
