The good news is that once you get it installed, the computer immediately recognizes the hard drive on boot up as an internal hard drive--no settings or drivers required. Since we can use USB sticks in place of CDs, this is a great way to add a second hard drive to your laptop. What I recommend is to replace your hard drive with an SSD as your C drive, then install your original HD as the D drive, and use it for storage. That's exactly what I'm doing with this laptop.
Also the face cover isn't able to fit flat on one side of the caddy so if I were to pull the caddy out the front plastic cover would pop out, so my optical drive face isn't sitting flat because the hole this piece needs to go into the hole is not close enough so yeah...
The caddy does detect the drive so that's good no problems with that.
Hopefully others won't run into the problem with the screw holes, would be nice if I could be sent a replacement for the trouble but I'm not wanting to deal with the having to return the old one sadly.
Now I can get back into doing my imaging of the planets and not worry about stressing the SSD and I'll be able to use my 500GB HDD now.
The caddy has sticker's on it that are supposed to be instructions. However, I noticed that they don't match my caddy. The stickers show clips that don't exist on my caddy. Also, the stickers on mine do not point out an important 3-position switch. This caddy (and many other cheap cd-rom bay caddies) has a 3-position switch in the hard drive slot, next to the SATA connectors. It is very easy to overlook. That switch is important because your drive might not work properly without being set in the correct position.... which is determined by trial and error. If it is in the wrong position, the computer might not find the hard drive or the laptop might have LEDs that never turn off when you try to shutdown the computer.
I had to disable fastboot on Windows 10 to get Windows to see my drive. Maybe changing the switch position again would have fixed that, but I didn't try it.
The caddy fits in my laptop well. It slides right into the bay without much effort. It fits the opening well, so it doesn't have extra space to move or bounce around. My laptop's frame doesn't have any screw holes that match the caddy's, so it is held in place by friction. However, because the caddy fits my cd-rom bay so well, he laptop's sata and power connectors provide enough friction that I don't have to worry about it working loose and falling out.
The face plate from my cdrom drive fits on the caddy perfectly. However, you should be very careful when removing the faceplate from the drive. If you damage the faceplate, it might not snap into the caddy correctly.
Removing the caddy isn't the easiest task. You have to try and pull it out using the cd-rom's face plate (if you attached it) and hope that it doesn't snap off. If it does, you have to use a screw driver to slowly pry it out.
I tried it on a few 2.5 inch drives and 2 of them fit perfectly. However one of them, a Kingston 120GB SSD, barely fit and I worry that it might damage the drive's sata connectors at some point.
Overall, I don't regret the purchase, but I would be shocked if there wasn't something better.
The problem is that the plastic is too thick on the inside portion where the metal tab is to be installed, such that the short screws from the laptop optical drive, aren't long enough to reach to the threads in the adapter module. This means that many users can slide this in and make it work, but won't be able to lock it in the laptop, allowing it to be slid out of the optical bay.
I was able to make it work by locating a longer screw that I had on hand, but many users won't have spare tiny screws laying around.
