    If you drop it from the right height, and get it to land right on the corner of the chassis, it will disassemble itself.

    Wait...


    Good luck if you need to reassemble that one.

    Yeah, I guess I left out the last step, some assembly required. Maybe some duct tape too.

    Wait a sec... Depending on model this might look better than factory design.

    It's a pain...

    I remember I had to hunt for the caddy itself, with or without screws I would have got the first good deal.
    My first HP laptop came without a second caddy all along. There was a lot of empty space.

    Now with the current (smaller) single-drive lappy, the DVD bay made room for a second disk drive: I'm still happy with this upgrade.
    IF I'll ever need a DVD again it can be added via external drive...

    I don't game on my laptop so its optical drive has seen very limited use. I might have put one DVD disk in it just to make sure it actually worked and that's about it. Other than that its been idle. I do my installs from USB thumb drives. My father has an HP with dual drive bays. It has the second caddy, but its missing the custom SATA/power cable for the second drive? WTF? Why add one but not the other?

    Many laptops now come with the M2SSD drives that look like a memory module. Still replaceable, just a different style/package.

    If this one had an SSD of any type, I'd be happy with it. For now, it's a tad bit slow compared to my desktop. Not good.

    A lot of laptop drives are 5400 RPM which makes them even slower than a stock 7200 RPM desktop spinner drive. It saves battery power and reduces heat, but you trade some performance in the process. Non of my laptops came with SSD drives. The cost of SSD drives was still on the expensive side when I bought my laptop. I put the original laptop drives in enclosures and use them for external storage and backup now.
