    G551 adding a SSD

    I have just ordered a G551JM. Since I don't need the optical drive I plan to swap it with a HDD caddy to add a SSD. Could someone tell me how thick the HDD caddy must be, since I saw some 9,5mm and some 12,7mm thick, so that I can order it without having to wait for the laptop to arrive.

    It is a 9,5mm optical drive so the caddy has to be the same.
