1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit

Pros: Rubber grommets, cheap

Cons: The bracket doesn't fit in narrow 5.25" bays like that of the Foxconn R30-D4. If you're trying to fit it in a tight 5.25" bay, try a different one.

Also, one of the screws was machined incorrectly (too wide).

Other Thoughts: I managed to fashion it on using 3/4 of the bracket parts, but it doesn't look too secure...

5 out of 5 eggsJust What The Doctor Ordered

Pros: Heavy duty, perfect fit, provides vibration isolation

Cons: No instructions. Thanks goes to previous poster, saved me about an hour of head scratching.

Other Thoughts: I experienced trials and tribulations attempting to get a 2 TB hard drive to run externally via eSATA with my old Shuttle XPC Glamor that is banished to serverville. I tried using both the onboard ports and a separate internal drive card with a Rosewill RX358 V2 external case, using every bios setting known to man, but got a weird rolling color screen error (not BSOD) and Windows crash every time within 15 minutes. Using this bracket I installed the drive in the optical bay with perfect results. Would purchase again if needed.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the trick!

3 out of 5 eggsSo-So

Pros: Alright

Cons: No instructions & the screw holes are not standard screws. You will regret it, if you lose the original screws and try to use other hard drive screws.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: For as simple of a design as these things are they work great...the way the brackets are fitted together using the rubber grommets is so simple yet so effective.

Cons: No instructions included, but you should be able to figure out how they're supposed to go together, and if not just read the reviews here to find out.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, if you can figure it out.

Pros: Allows me to fit my HD up into a 5.25", and I'd like to think it will reduce vibrations and extend the life of the drive.

Cons: Comes packaged NOTHING like how it gets installed. If you look at the pictures here on Newegg, and try to figure it out, it's not that hard. Just be sure to make sure the 2 main pieces never have any metal-to-metal contact, and that the rubber grommet is completely inside the mounting hole.

Other Thoughts: Is it holding my HD in a 5.25" bay? Yes.

Is it protecting my HD from vibrations? I'm not so sure, but I'd like to think so.

I think my case fans cause more vibrations than the HD, but any little bit counts.

3 out of 5 eggsNot the most self-explanitory

Pros: They fit.. eventually. Brackets are pretty solid.

Cons: I spend a lot of time working on computers, and these could really benefit from a small instruction card or something. They aren't self-explanitory at all. In fact i'm still not sure i have them in right, but they fit... so good enough. Did not fit very well with the toolless mounts in my case, actually had to remove the mounting mechanism and replace with screws.

The brackets themselves are solid, but the screws are made of very cheap material, and the screw holes on the brackets are pretty meh.

One of the screws got so stuck and stripped trying to get it out that it had to be drilled entirely through to get it out.

4 out of 5 eggsNicely designed, but has rough edges

Pros: Works well, and has nice-looking shock suspension.

Cons: An assembly diagram would be appreciated, though the procedure is simple to deduce. Please handle with care, as the internal cutouts have rough edges

Other Thoughts: Would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Bracket

Pros: Bracket works well...although it took me about 10 min to get it together properly. I followed directions in a previous review.

Cons: No mounting holes on the bottom.

Other Thoughts: I ordered these not realizing that they didn't have the mounting holes for a bottom mount drive bay....other than that, they look/feel solid
