3 out of 5 eggsStarTech BRACKETFDBK 3.5in Hard Drive to 5.25in Front Bay Bracket Adapter

Pros: It's a bracket.

Cons: It's plastic, screw holes are un-tapped, makes installing a pain. My recommendation, pre-tap your holes if you can. It did work but it's kind of flimsy.

Other Thoughts: In a pinch it worked ok but would opt for something better if I had more time..

4 out of 5 eggsGood bracket

Pros: Solid bracket and a nice black color. Entire bracket is black plastic, so scratches won't turn the bracket white.

Cons: The mounting points are thicker than than they should be. Likely to compensate for being plastic instead of metal. Your standard fine machine screws for PC cases may not be long enough. (They are not included)

I needed to hit up Lowes to mount a Rosewill and Vantec Card Readers securely.

Other Thoughts: The bracket mounts using self tapping screws, which are included. They are silver, so if care about what the inside of your case looks like, get some paint.

3 out of 5 eggsCheap Plastic

Pros: Inexpensive, it works

Cons: Thick plastic so the standard drive screws were not long enough to use. Luckily, I had some longer ones.

Other Thoughts: You do not use standard screws to mount, you need to use a screw closer to a wood screw (pointy end to go into the plastic). Luckily, they include these screws.

In retrospect, I should have purchased something made of metal because the plastic is an insulator so that heat can not be conducted away from a drive.

3 out of 5 eggsYou already know what you are buying.

Pros: It fits like it is supposed to...it does what it claims. It comes with 4 mounting screws for the 5.25" side.

Cons: It doesn't come with mounting screws for the 3.5" side. The problem is, the plastic is kind of thick, and the ones that come with your 3.5" device are probably not long enough.

Plastic is cheap and will split easily if you choose the wrong screws.

Other Thoughts: You are buying this because you need it. It is a utilitarian device, and it does what it was designed to do...just be gentle with it.
