    I have the exact same issue,only I bought mine from another seller, which leads me to believe it may be a problem with the T410. See my post here: Re: T410 Ultrabay HDD Question - lenovo community .

    I bought the genuine Lenovo caddy and an exact hard drive for my w510. It is RAID1 now, The genuine caddy has a blue LED. It really is for the w500 so there is a gap at the top. The color and finish is identical to the laptop.

    I used a knockoff ebay caddy in my T400 with a 640gb WD Blue drive, and it worked superbly with excellent throughput and drive performance. Build quality was probably not as nice as the genuine part, but it is kind of hard to screw up manufacturing a simple SATA interface. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another cheap one.

    My guess is that most knock-offs will work well enough but there maybe some that dont work that well. The best thing is to get from a reliable seller with gd ratings esp when buying from ebay.
