WTB [EU] Hard drive ultrabay adapter, genuine, for W520

#1 Post by Ole » Mon Aug 13, 2018 6:05 am

I'm looking for a genuine hard drive ultrabay adapter for a W520 (should be the same for all x20-series). It's getting hard to find one online these days, as it's flooded with chinese knock offs. Any suggestions as to where to locate any is also welcome.

Believe it or not, the Chinese knock off's work just fine.

It's not rocket science. It just has to hold the drive in position to mate with the connector and not fall out of the machine.

Just saw some horror stories of hard drives rattling around with the Chinese ones. I might have a seller though, will update post if it's confirmed.
