I have this almost 3yr old T43p thinkpad that came with a 60GB HDD of which only 51GB was usable space. This 2nd HDD adapter extended the lifespan of my PC by another 3yrs. Frankly I havent used the CD/DVD drive any more than 0.5% of the time since now a days everything is networked and with high speed internet and dirt cheap high capacity jumpdrives transferring data never nessecitates CD/DVD.
So replacing the DVD drive with another HDD is a no brainer. Installation took <2mins. I bought myself a 2.5" WD250GB Scorpio PATA drive that I had to slip into the adapter. Shove the thing in and viola you have additional 250GB. After booting up you will not see the HDD but it is there. Just right click on My computer>Manage>Storage>Disk Management>selected the newly installed HDD and format it NTFS (you can do a quick format since it is a brand new one, or else do a full format which takes little longer depending on the capacity). Also this is where you get the option to partion it if you so wish. Once formatted it is just like another HDD.
The WD250GB Scorpio PATA drive is really wishper quiet even in an empty room with no ambient noise.

One that concerened me a little is there is a very tiny gap between the drive and the plastic that fills the gap. But so far it is not rattling around. However make sure you are getting the right adapter for your system.. T4o series has the ultrabay slim , so make sure you get the "slim" version. R series use Ultrabay2000 so keep that in mind.

I am very very happy that IBM came up with this novel solution. Infact you can have multiple 2.5" HDDs which you can swap in an out and take instant backups. Dont know if putting IN and OUT HDDs too many times can wear out the contacts, so not highly advisable.

I THINK IT IS MUST FOR ALL AGING THINKPADS.

Excellent adapter for adding a 2nd internal hard drive to a Lenovo Laptop. If you are using Windows Vista or XP simply slip the drive into the adapter and slip into the Ultrabay. If the drive is new, you will need to initialize the drive and format it using XP administrative tools. There are plenty of instructions on the web and Lenovo website for doing this. No additional software is required.

The adapter comes with some additional software tools for copying disks and moving files, etc. This additional software can be downloaded from Lenovo's website contrary to what a previous reviewer indicates. This software is no substitute for NERO's or Roxio's disk tools.

I've been using the adapter with a 160GB 2.5 inch internal hard drive enclosed in it now for a few weeks and it works perfectly.

Look closely at the picture that shows the connector. It's not SATA and it's not typical IDE.
If you don't already have a PATA drive with this type of connector, you probably won't be able to find one.
If looking for standard SATA - THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.

This particular product has what looks like an IDE adapter. You will not be able to plug in any SATA drive into the provided electrical socket. The Ultrabay adapter itself will not plug into the slot of your CD drive . You will immediately see that when you remove your CD drive and compare the two adapters side by side. On further examination, I found that the soldering was also very unprofessional and done by someone very unskilled at this type of work. Save yourself the time and skip this product.

Perfect and on time Harddrive works great. Price good. Now my IBM T43 has a spare drive. Once main drive breaks it becomes a door stop. Original drive refuses to clone. Ultra bay is great.
