Dear Zernager,
The item which I purchased is described as a "7mm 2.5 inch internal drive" and SanDisk include a thin plastic rectangular spacer "for larger (i.e thicker) drive bays" and if you, like me, are replacing a 7mm mechanical hard drive you will not need this spacer. Also I don't think you actually need to specify which "style" you are ordering from Amazon. I hope this answer is helpful?

I have never needed the 2mm spacer but some laptops have a 9mm high slot which is where the spacer is needed so the sockets on the drive align with the plus (pins) on the laptop. Need a 3.5" to 2.5" adaptor to fit into desktop PCs. Hope this helps.
