I'm looking closer at the specs of the laptop caddies, and it doesn't look like it's going to be faster than SATA I. It says it is fit for SATA to SATA, and it can bear SATA I, II, III, but it does not say anything about the transfer speeds being up to SATA III transfer speeds. 

Does anyone see this like more or anything differently? 

Thanks

This is a link to one of them. They're only $10.

The CD bay is only SATA!

 

If you want USB connectivity by an enclosure.

Which means 1GB per second, right?  How do I get a SATA III on that spare SSD caddy?  Keep in mind I'm pulling out the DVD, and I'm putting in the caddy with an SSD in it.  
 

Thanks

The connections are the same for SATA gen I, II and III.  If the laptop is SATA III compatible, and the device your connecting to it is SATA III compatible, then the link will be at 6 Gb/s.  If the laptop chipset only supports SATA II, then nothing you do will bring it up to SATA III speeds - the link will be at 3 Gb/s.  The caddy doesn't matter really, it's just a pass thru.
