3 out of 5 eggsDecent, but could be a lot better.

Pros: There are tons of holes on the bottom that provide ventilation. It does hold a pair of 2.5 inch HDDs/SSDs.

Cons: The metal is fairly thin and you want to watch that you don't bend the tabs onto which the 2.5 inch drives mount.

As is VERY typical with these "two 2.5 inch drives into the space of a 3.5 inch drive" adapters you'll have a tough time actually getting the 2.5 inch drives mounted properly. A magnetic screwdriver REALLY helps with this predicament.

The adapter that was sent to me is the one that is pictured on the Newegg website (as of late 2015). For me only two of the 3.5 inch drive mounting holes (the rear ones) lined up and were usable. Where the front holes would be is empty space, but there's metal within spitting distance ... so it works OK, but not nearly perfectly. I hold the front down even more securely with one of those "box triangle binder clips" (paper clip).

Other Thoughts: If you want a "built like a brick shirtt house" adapter for two 2.5 inch drives then try one of the Silverstone offerings. Those don't have much in the way of ventilation, but with SSDs you don't need much. I guess you could drill the ventilation holes yourself. You'll still run into the "difficult to mount the 2.5 inch drives" problem. Again, a magnetic screwdriver REALLY helps with that predicament.

1 out of 5 eggsNot well desgined

Pros: None

Cons: My case mounts the 3 1/2 inch drives from the bottom mounting holes. This adapter only has holes for the side mounts.

If you're going to make a 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inch adapter it might be a good idea to look at a 3 1/2 inch drive and duplicate the standard mounting points and put ALL of them on your adapter.

1 out of 5 eggsNot as pictured or described

Pros: Solid material.

Cons: The product seen on the page is not the product received. I received a single 2.5 to 3.5 mount Model# HDA 250M

The packaging shows the HDA 259A but contained a HDA 250M.

Seems some one in packaging needs to pay attention or vantecusa needs to step up their entire operation. This is unacceptable.

3 out of 5 eggsVantec HDA-259A is very thin.

Pros: It works. A fan can be mounted for cooling a traditional laptop drive.

Cons: It is extremely thin and the tabs that hold the drive bend easily.

Other Thoughts: I bought 4 differnt ssd adapters to try different options. The Vantec HDA-250M is more solid and I would buy that version again.

3 out of 5 eggsBarely there

Pros: Clever and functional design engineered to serve it's purpose. One of few options for solving the problem of SSD manufacturers not including a mounting bracket, ala OCZ Agility.

Cons: Don't get me wrong, I appreciate a manufacturer streamling material costs but this bracket probably floats on water. Beer can thinness of metal and poly-bag packaging make for damaged shipments; I had to repair one of the four drive-mount tabs with JB Weld. Supports SSDs fine but I don't know if I'd trust it to support the weight of a mechanical drive. When mounting your drive in the bay, as soon as the bolt seats itself STOP TORQUING or you will strip the bracket's nearly imperceptible threads. Tray length allows for optional mounting of an 80 mm cooling fan but disallows use of a 90 degree SATA plug unless you turn the SSD upside down.

Other Thoughts: Unique twist on a simple need, the mounting bracket. Newegg should throw in missing mounting brackets for SSDs, by the way, to keep up the customer morale. Thank you in advance.

4 out of 5 eggsNot a strong mounting kit

Pros: Space for 2 ssd. Place for mounting fan.

Cons: The metal is too thin, a little force will bend it.

Other Thoughts: other than the metal, Everything is good and functional
