5 out of 5 eggsClose enough

This review is from: StarTech.com 2.5 Inch SATA Hard Drive to 3.5 Inch Drive Bay Mounting Kit (BRACKET25SAT)

Pros: Designed close enough to fit any laptop drive I've mounted in it. Sure, some drives are so thin that you have to shim under the screws to keep the drive from moving around, but that's not the fault of the adapter. The holes in the drive are just too shallow. This is a great answer for those of us who are tired of overheating desktop drives. Allows the use of a laptop drive in your desktop. They run cooler and their small size allows much more airflow around them.

Cons: None so far and I've used 4 of these.

Other Thoughts: To those who want "big screw holes" like a 3-1/2 in drive...why? Are your laptop drives as heavy as a desktop drive? Not needed. This fits perfectly in a 3-1/2 inch drive bay and if you want to put it into a 5-1/2, that works too as long as you have adapters like you would use on a desktop hard drive. Those adapters fit just fine as long as you use a washer under the small screw heads so they don't go through the adapter mounting slots.

3 out of 5 eggsSSD/HDD drive bay adapter

This review is from: StarTech.com 2.5 Inch SATA Hard Drive to 3.5 Inch Drive Bay Mounting Kit (BRACKET25SAT)

Pros: Cheap, comes with enough screws and one piece data/power cable to connect an SATA drive up easily.

The SATA cable length is great for easy motherboard connections.

Cons: Not all four mounting screws, for the adapter into a drive bay, will line up. I was mounting an SSD and only needed two of the four to support the drive. The screws into the drive line up with the adapter and you can mount all four.

The SATA cable, on the motherboard end, does not have a latch like most cables.

5 out of 5 eggsConvenient!

This review is from: StarTech.com 2.5 Inch SATA Hard Drive to 3.5 Inch Drive Bay Mounting Kit (BRACKET25SAT)

Pros: These kinds of adapters can be difficult to find, but this one made my life much easier. Perfect for installing a SSD or laptop drive in your older machine without SATA power connectors.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if the SATA cable had the new-style lock on it. No big deal, it doesn't fall out or anything.

This review is from: StarTech.com 2.5 Inch SATA Hard Drive to 3.5 Inch Drive Bay Mounting Kit (BRACKET25SAT)

4 out of 5 eggsgood stuff

This review is from: StarTech.com 2.5 Inch SATA Hard Drive to 3.5 Inch Drive Bay Mounting Kit (BRACKET25SAT)

Pros: sturdy metal, comes with screws and even the pictured cable. what they don't tell you is; you can actually mount two drives on one bracket. one using the side screw holes the other using the floor panel screw holes and then mount both 2.5" drives into one 3.5" drive bay. i mounted an ssd on one side and a hybrid drive on the other....

Cons: one egg ding for price (cheaper elsewhere btw) but even the lower price seems about 10-15% higher than it should be.

Other Thoughts: should last for ever if careful not to strip the threads.....

1 out of 5 eggsHole pattern is for 3.5 floppy bay

This review is from: StarTech.com 2.5 Inch SATA Hard Drive to 3.5 Inch Drive Bay Mounting Kit (BRACKET25SAT)

Pros: Included cable is great.

Cons: To clarify previous review, hole pattern is for a 3.5 floppy bay - not for a 3.5 hard-drive bay as one would expect, nor as is implied. Regardless the holes do not line up nearly well as they should. This floppy-bay adapter is also the reason for some of the confusion from other reviewers with the included screws.

Other Thoughts: StarTech was not paying attention when they packaged this product.

2 out of 5 eggsMounting Screws aren't standard

This review is from: StarTech.com 2.5 Inch SATA Hard Drive to 3.5 Inch Drive Bay Mounting Kit (BRACKET25SAT)

Pros: I can mount my drive to it, and in general there is not much to it.

Cons: The screw holes for the bracket that mounts to the case are not standard 6-32 screws. This makes the bracket useless if you have a case that requires that you mount all 3.5" devices with standard 6-32 screws.

Other Thoughts: None
