Re: x220/x230 FHD/ WQHD 2K mSATA/USB3.0

Re: non lenovo hard drive bay adaptor in ultrabase3

You are talking about hdd/sdd 9.5mm caddy for dvd bay ? or i got something wrong

My 2euros plastic caddy from aliexpress Works great in ultrabase3 with X220

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I ordered from him spb4, 4 days ago. I wrote to him in message, that i want exactly spb4.

I think he means do you want spb4 or spb3

Re: X220 FHD Upgrade?

I know display port on the left side keeps working after doing this mod; but
Does display port on dock station/connector work if laptop lid is closed.
