5 out of 5 eggs3.5" to 5" adapter

Pros: It's hard to go wrong with a simple bracket although it can be done. But not in this case. It has big holes to be able to reach screws further in. And it has the small holes on the outer braces to be able to take advantage of those cases that have push-button install of optical drives and such.

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: It's too bad it wasn't designed to be able to also adapt 2.5" hard drives and SSDs. But it wasn't advertised to be that so there's no egg-ding.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Bracket

Pros: Bought this for StarTech internal media card reader. Fits it's own product well, screws holes lined up perfectly with my case. Like brushed finish on front, matches my case exterior well.

Cons: Screw holes on bracket hold the reader were not made too well, be careful with too much force they will crack easily.
Screw holes to mount the bracket come with screws, holes are too small for usual PC screws as these are pre tapped
holes made for screws come with it to hold it in case, not machine screws, but would work if used. I did not made holes slightly bigger for machine screws.

Other Thoughts: All in all bracket works well for it's brand internal device, looks good!

5 out of 5 eggsWorked in my Mac Pro 1,1

Pros: Installed fine, everything lined up ok (which was a concern when I ordered it). Comes with the screws you will need to mount the adapter into the computer.

Cons: Does not come with the screws you will need to mount the drive into the adapter. Wasn't a problem for me tho, I had plenty laying around.

Other Thoughts: Used this adapter bracket to install a 5th hard drive into the empty IDE optical bay of my old Mac Pro 1,1. Worked like a champ!

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.
