Getting a hard drive adapter kit for the A515-51-88NY?

Expo67Expo67 Posts: 2Member New User
I just bought a A515-51-88NY and have read the many challenges that owners have experienced getting an adapter kit for their A515-51 laptops.

Some members have contacted their regional technical support representatives and received mixed answers. Others have found the parts from a third party but paid some high prices for a bracket, a ribbon cable, and eight screws.

There seems to be a kit on the US Acer site here that might contain the parts for a A515-51-88NY, but this cannot be shipped to Canada.

I am located in Canada. Who should I contact to get the parts that I need to add a HDD into my new A515-51-88NY laptop?

    It should work. I have an A515-51-86AQ and I bought and installed that exact kit. I have a Corsair Force LE 2.5" 480GB SATA III running right now using that cable and bracket.

    My laptop is a refurb from Newegg (out of warranty), and whatever technical support I called redirected me to some third party seller trying to get me to pay $30 + $7 shipping for the same thing. Shady. Just buy it directly from Acer.
