Install of a 7mm thick ssd in a 9.5 mm hdd bay ?

Hi,

I will receive my Plextor M5P in a couple of days! It will replace my laptop 500 GB hdd!
I've a Toshiba Tecra R840 that uses a 9.5 mm thick, not screwed hdd! The M5P is only 7mm thick! Has anyone install one 7mm Plextor drive in a laptop?
Need advice please!

Regards,
paulo

I believe the width is the same, and the thickness will not matter unless it were too thick, the opposite of what you are going to do.
