5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with an N550JK

Pros: Fits nicely in my new N550JK laptop from Asus. The front faceplate that used to be a part of the former DVD drive fits fine and the laptop still looks normal.

Cons: None yet. Hopefully it will continue to work well so I can forget that I have it.

Other Thoughts: None

3 out of 5 eggsGot the job done!

Pros: -Plastic can be easily modified with a blade if you need to make something fit.

I had to cut off two small parts to make my optical drive cover fit on it properly.

Cons: -The plastic is not THAT BAD. It is sturdy enough as long as you are reasonably careful when handling it.

-Definitely overpriced! (But then again, what isn't...)

-My package came with two missing screws and one completely useless screw.... I am in a freaking computer screw deficit because this always happens to me for some reason! But I managed to figure that out no problem.

-The Slim SATA side of the "Slim-SATA-to-SATA-Adapter" was a bit strained, it was twisted out of position, so I had to snap it back into place.Everything worked fine.

Other Thoughts: -I am just happy I everything worked and that this thing didn't fall apart on my hands.

Definately not worth 20 dollars but I would have felt much worse if it had fallen apart on me and I would have had to pay some other guy 20 dollars to go through the same thing again.

5 out of 5 eggsNeed to be inventive and modify it yourself.

Pros: I've got a sleekbook, and the best thing about this is that it supports almost ever bezel. I thought oh crud these plastic tabs are in the way, so I removed them with cable cutters and a filer. BLAM! PERFECT! Almost flush like the burner! :) It's perfect.

Cons: Average Joe would probably get fed up with it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HDDs, Not for SSDs

Pros: -Works on my Toshiba S50 (with slight modification; see below).
-No problem with connectivity.
-HDD activity LED

Cons: -Had to cut-off a piece to fit the laptop tray cover (in which from the looks of it, is by design).
-Drives on the tray cannot be boot from (which make sense for it's purpose; see below).

Other Thoughts: You'll see a lot of reviews of this caddy in which people complain that the drives on it are slow and cannot be booted from.

-For starters, any drive on this caddy will only run on SATA revision 1 - 1.5 Gbit/s. I repeat, ONLY SATA rev. 1!!! This is a huge bottleneck for all SSDs and should not be used on such drives. Why only SATA 1 - 1.5 Gbit/s? It's because the port on your laptop's ODD was designed to, you know, run optical drives. SATA 3 will be unnecessary for such drives.

-The reason why it can't be booted from is that most laptop BIOS only recognize the ODD port specifically just for optical drives. This may not apply to laptops with unlocked BIOS. This isn't a major downside as you should only use this caddy for secondary drives.

-The best option is to put your SSD on your primary drive bay (which will almost always SATA 2 or SATA 3 nowadays) to leverage its speeds and put a secondary hard drive (preferably a 5400 RPM drive; 7200 RPM drives will run very hot as most laptops don't have ventilation on optical drive bays) on the caddy.

-As mentioned before, I did cut of a piece of plastic (there's two of them) to get my drive cover on the caddy. I only had to remove one but it seems like it is by design as the pieces were thinned out as if they were meant to be removed for some laptop models.

-One last note, make sure your laptop optical drive's height is ~9.5 mm as there's another version for older laptops which contain ODDs with the height of ~12.7 mm.

1 out of 5 eggsthe worst product i have ever purchased from NEWEGG!!!!!!!!!

Pros: None

Cons: The quality is so cheap, made of plastic and costs $20, half the price than OWC but 1/10 of the quality!!

I hope i can rate zero eggs!!!

Other Thoughts: I have ordered two of this, and i put a 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD into it and put them into my Late 2011 MBP. The laptop does recognize the drive but I was not able to format or partition the drive using this tray.

HOWEVER, when i take the SSD out of this tray, and put it into one of my hard drive enclosure, then i can format and partition the drive!

And also the green light is so annoying it makes your MBP looks like a PC, so i have to disconnect the light and pull it out in order to make my MBP looks like a normal MBP.

So don't waste your money on this if you want to add a second drive to your MBP.

This HDD tray is the WORST product I have ever purchased on NEWEGG!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: This fit great in my Acer Aspire Timeline M5-481TG. Other places sell these for $40+ so when I found this on Newegg I bought it. Windows recognized the SSD without any problem and install was a breeze. Would definitely recommend. Great having a second SSD in my laptop!

Cons: Putting the cd-rom end plate on to this wasn't to bad, but it kind of sticks down below the laptop a bit now. Not a big con though, just not the greatest fit. I'm not complaining though, got my second SSD now and it works :)

Other Thoughts: If you know how to tear apart your laptop and want some extra space this is a worth while part. I never used the cd rom once on my laptop so it was easy to swap that out.
