W520 Compatible OEM Raid Caddy FRU(s)?

#1 Post by Carthik » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:09 am

Only looking for the OEM Lenovo one. My research has indicated there may be more modern Lenovo offerings that are not listed in the W520 HMM that work with the W520 (fully, including having the spacer for the gap). Perhaps one of them is from the W530 as they share similar chassis designs? Haven't found any concrete information yet.

1: Why do you need OEM? A piece of stamped sheet metal is a piece of stamped sheet metal.

2: Pretty much any 9mm drive caddy from 2006-2011 will work in the W520
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
