ASUS G53 hard drive cage?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an ASUS G53 and was wondering where I can get a cage to use two drives, preferably a SSD.

I just got one of these laptops yesterday, so I too am interested in this. Well, I read on one of the reviews @ Newegg that the G53SW-XN1 came with an extra cage, which is the model that I bought.. but I don't see one in the box unless it can actually hold 2 HD's + the cd drive.

If I don't get an answer to this in a few days, I will take it apart and find out.

G73 cages will work as well, they won't fit 100%, but they will mount. Also make sure you get a tutorial, or you will literally **** up the G53, the back plate doesn't simply come off.
