    I was talking about the caddy that you can install instead of the optical unit.

    I have 2 HDDs inside the laptop and i'd like to remove the DVD-RW...don't use it anyway.

    Surprisingly, a google search for 'inspiron 7720 hdd caddy' revealed some results:

    i had my 7720 (se spec below) for nearly 2 years now and its one of the best laptop i had

    the only thing i wish is that the laptop sometimes would run more stable on battery (especially when i stream videos).........but again, very good model :)

    If anyone is still looking for a 9 cell battery for their 7720, look for DL6420LP Bay Valley Parts 9-Cell 11.1V 7800mAh on amazon. They are all currently sold out on ebay. (ebay was cheaper) This battery will raise the rear of the laptop about 1/2 inch, so it won't lay flat anymore. Just got one and so far it works well.

    Even cheaper ($49.99 + Free Shipping) on Rakuten.com (Buy.com). How much were they on ebay? I did an advanced search and could not find the item.

    You're sure they fit the 7720? Only reason I ask is because a while back I bought a Latitude battery that looked like it would fit FOR SURE, and guess what? It didn't. Almost, but would not lock down into the 7720 fully.

    So, since the title doesn't reference the 7720, I wanted to be sure that you ordered one and that it does, indeed, fit and work.

    Good deal if it does. Thanks!

    This is the one I received. I also wasn't sure it would work but took a shot at it.. Sorry about the pics but I only have a nintendo 3ds to take pictures with. The product description on amazon has a big list of pc's and the 7720 is listed but you have to look at the list carefully to not miss it.

    Thanks for the pics. I like batteries that raise the back of the notebook as it helps with cooling.
    What I meant about the title not showing 7720 was the ebay listing. I found the (now expired) original listing and it didn't list the 7720 in the title. I contacted the seller to see if they would be getting more. I like $35 more than over $60 on Amazon!
