Optical Bay Hard Drive Caddy(p/n OBHD-SATA-SATA-B) Black, 12.7mm


Add a Second Hard Drive to your laptop using your laptop's optical drive bay.  This is a great solution for those that want to add a second hard drive in their laptop in lieu of a SATA Optical drive.  This device/caddy will fit in a "standard 12.7mm-high" SATA CD/DVD/Optical drive bay found in laptop computers.  Please note that this will fit in notebooks with a SATA Optical Drive Bay.  Most laptops today have a  PATA Optical drive bay (despite having a SATA Primary Hard Drive).   Please see photos below comparing the external interfaces of the OBHD.
