Am trying to find compatible hard drive caddy for HP ENVY M4-1015dx laptop to replace cd/dvd drive with 1TB 5400rpm WD drive.

Not sure the depth , width of CD/dvd drive , here is the model CDDVDW SU-208BB [Optical drive]

Bought a new laptop with I7 and 8GB ram. Ordered Samsung 840 pro 256GB to replace original 1TB hard disk, will need this 1TB in optical drive slot.

Sunny, I am about to do the same thing with my m4-1015dx. Did you ever find an appropriate product? The generic "9.5 mm 2nd HDD caddy" variety (Amazon) should work but I have read about issues using a drive over 500 GB. Please share your results.

Thanks! Ordered my Sammy 840 Pro today. Does it solve any lag that you experienced with the m4-1015dx prior to installation? Sometimes my mouse will hang while an app loads. Drives me insane.
