What are the dimmensions of external HDD ultrabay T410

#1 Post by radiator » Fri Feb 08, 2019 6:03 am

I want to buy external HDD ultra bay for t410 not t410s, but fail to find the dimmension of the ultra bay drive. Will 12,7 mm fit to my model? Some web auction portals say it should be les that 10mm. No clue where the truth is.

The T410 Ultrabay is 9.5mm high.
The perfect internal caddy can be found here: https://www.newmodeus.com/shop/index.ph ... cts_id=483

But if you want an external enclosure, these are connected through the regular USB port.
In that case you need to find an enclosure that matches the height of your caddy, which can be 7, 9.5 or 12.7 mm.
If you use the above caddy, this 9.5mm enclosure would do fine: https://www.ebay.com/itm/253901504546
Please note that these enclosures come in USB2.0 and USB3.0.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly! :mrgreen:

I need ultrabay in place of dvd rom. Found info that 12.7 (wikihow) should work.Strange, isn't it?

What's strange? That somewhere on the internet there is erroneous information? Surely it has never happened before! :lol:

Sorry for belated reply, just came back from New Year holidays, and still down with the flu...

1. We have both a working T410 and the original Lenovo/ThinkPad SATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter III (P/N 43N3412).

2. We confirm that Lenovo/ThinkPad SATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter III (P/N 43N3412) is 9.5mm in height, and obviously it would fit into our T410 UltraBay.
If you fit in a blank 2.5" SATA SSD or HDD, it would be a great additional storage solution!

3. FYI, our Lenovo/ThinkPad SATA Hard Drive Bay Adapter III (P/N 43N3412) unit remain unused after all these years, and we still have the original Lenovo/ThinkPad box/packaging that it came with,because we have never used it (only opened it up to test to confirm that it works).

Both T410 and T410s have 9.5mm height Ultrabay.

12.7mm vs 9.5mm divergence only occurs in subsequent T420 and T420s, T430 and T430s models.
