5 out of 5 eggs4 drives in a cd bay? Epic!

Pros: fits 4x 2.5" drives, awesome for ssd raids! I consider optical media dead, so this is atleast 4x better than a dvd drive for me! Fits nicely and can remove the front plate on it so that you can keep the same cover on your case's cd bay. Wasn't too finicky to assemble with the drives.

Cons: would be a nice bonus to come with some screws to attach the drives, but that's probably better purchased separately.

Other Thoughts: Epic ssd raid0 time!

5 out of 5 eggsThese things are great!

Pros: I am very happy with myself for finding these things. I needed a way to stuff a 2.5" drive in a couple Dell T320's without taking up one of the main drive bays and these are perfect. There's even some room for growth if I need it down the road.

Cons: Watch your fingers, the top panel has a sharp edge where it curves down

5 out of 5 eggsGreat way to add more storage

Pros: These adapters are excellent. I purchased one several months ago to be able to add some 2.5" hard drives to my HP ProLiant ML10. Upon installing it, I realized with thin 2.5" drives it's possible add a second tray (a 3rd level) and actually put 6 drives in the adapter. This requires purchasing two and using the tray from the 2nd unit. This works perfectly and is still pretty cheap.

You can additionally add one 3.5 drive and 2 2.5s if you so desire. I have 4 320GB 2.5" drives and 2 120gb SSDs in a Server 2012 R2 mirrored Storage Space.

Cons: Does not include screws for the drives.hope you have plenty laying around. I am not having any heat problems 2 40MM fans are not a lot of cooling if you are in a hot environment.

Other Thoughts: Great product. Even as a single 3.5" adapter it's nearly as cheap as the simple metal brackets and lets you add fans for cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple and wellmade

Pros: Does what it claims to do -- fits four 2.5in drives in a 5.25in drive slot.

Cons: Doesn't come with mounting hardware for the drives or actually securing it to the 5.25in drive slot, but it's no great bother.

4 out of 5 eggslove this adapter

Pros: works great!

Cons: my 2.5" drives were a bit too tall to safely mount on top of the 3.5" drive I had in the bottom bay.

Luckily though due to the way my case was setup I was able to mount the 3.5" drive on the bottom rail of a single 5.25" bay, and slide the 2.5" drives on the top rail of the same bay.

I'm deducting an egg because the drive heights weren't specified. So I got lucky on this one, but another might not be so fortunate

4 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed

Pros: I didn't want an expensive RAID solution as I'm doing Linux RAID for boot. I just wanted a way to mount 2.5" device in a 5.25" drive bay. This was perfect and lets me have room for two more devices later on.

Cons: A little tight sliding it in to the drive bay. You have to push it a little bit. I was worried about doing that with my SSD's already installed but it seems OK.

3 out of 5 eggsNo screws included; tight fit if mounting drives on bottom shelf

Pros: Solid.

Has 2 40mm fan mounts on the front.

Cons: No screws included.

If you need to mount a drive or two on the bottom shelf, and the drive bay you intend to insert this into has a bottom surface, you better find flat-head screws to attach your drives with, otherwise it won't fit in your bay. I couldn't find such screws, so this won't fit in the ODD bay of the ProLiant Microserver N54L (without hacking/dremeling it, as "lostass" seems to have done to it).

Can only fit a 20mm thick 3.5" drive (have to unscrew the top shelf, attach the drive, then reattach the top shelf if the drive is thicker than 16mm or so), and only on the bottom shelf.

Other Thoughts: It's relatively expensive for what it is, a couple of machined pieces of steel and plastic. I'd be happier and glad to pay the price if it was a little better thought out, and included flat-head screws for mounting drives on the bottom shelf so that the bottom of the unit is flush and can slide right into the intended drive bay.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for Mac Pro Mod

Pros: This adapter allows for a 3.5" drive to be used alongside 2x 2.5" drives. The 3 drives only take up the space of a 5.25" CD/DVD drive bay, which is what I needed. You can also use the adapter with 4x 2.5".

I'm using 2 of these adapters in my Mac Pro mod. The Mac Pro's CD/DVD Sled can only hold 2x 5.25" drives so with 2 of these adapter's I've been able to stick a couple SSD's in there along with my two 2TB WD Black drives. I have a 120mm fan custom mounted at the top to blow air across the WD blacks since they get so hot.

These adapter's worked out great considering I didn't really have anywhere else to mount an HDD rack in this case due to my water cooling setup.

Cons: None
