    Asus G750JZ & Samsung EVO 840 Upgrade, Second HD Caddy Included?

    Hey guys,

    Hey guys, i have a simple question.

    I have purchased Asus G750JZ but only with 1 HDD without any SSD... However i have purchased SSD Samsung EVO 840 and i would like to know, if is "HDD FRAME" ( propably HDD Caddy, i don´t know the name of it in english ) included in the laptop or not. The reason why i´m asking is, that i will have only 1 HDD inside, and the second HDD slot will be free and i don´t know if there will be the "HDD FRAME/HDD Caddy", or not.

    If not, what "HDD FRAME/HDD Caddy" should i buy for G750JZ?

    I would suggest this is a question for ausu support. I have no idea if they supply empty drive caddys inside the laptop. I would also suggest buying the asus caddy as it will be required for the right mounting points.

    Theodore, my JW/JX came with an empty caddy in the 2nd bay, the JH had a 1TB already in the 2nd bay. I think all the G750's come with an empty caddy in the 2nd bay if there aren't 2 drives.

    You can buy extras from the Asus estore, here is the link to the offering in the US Asus estore.

    Hard Drive Caddy
    SKU: 13GNY81AM020-1
    Your Price: $22.50
    http://us.estore.asus.com/index.php?..._detail&p=3018

    If your G750 comes with an empty caddy in the 2nd bay, the drive screws are in a little plastic baggy taped inside the box - or in the paperwork baggy. Don't accidentally throw it away - some people have

    If you do accidentally throw away the baggy with the screws, you can take half the drive screws from the Bay1 caddy to use in the Bay2 caddy.

    BTW, I thought all configurations of the JZ came with a 2nd Bay drive...
