5 out of 5 eggsHolds 2 Drives No Problem

Pros: It's a drive tray.

If mounting 2 drives you can install them facing the same direction or opposite directions to avoid cabling issues. I use straight-in SATA cables, but if must have the drive on top connected with a right-anfle SATA cable then simply have the lower drive face the other way.

Cons: Mounting holes aren't threaded so be sure to use a bit extra pressure when attaching the mounting screws.

Other Thoughts: Clearly this little bracket is up to the job of holding 2 laptop size drives without problems.

2 out of 5 eggsWish I paid a few dollars more for a metal one

Pros: Samsung 840 EVO 2.5" drive fits properly.
Enough screws to secure 2 drives and secure into case.
Plastic feels decently sturdy but cheap.

Cons: Screws to secure the kit to the case tear up the plastic on first thread.
The holes are not pre-threaded.
The holes do not line up well with my case.
I believe the depth of the device (long ways) is too long and wish there wasn't any wasted space.

Other Thoughts: This felt decently good as I was mounting the drive to the enclosure. But my opinion went way downhill went trying to mount it into my case. It sticks out into the case more than I would like and not deep enough into the 3.5" floppy drive slot while my Lian Li case's metal bay cover is still on. I would have to remove the front bay cover if I wanted the depth to fit properly, thus leaving a gaping hole in the front of my case. That's not going to happen.

I could live with the depth if it just fit, so I tried screwing in the screws. The holes didn't line up well even though my case has plenty of room to screw them in, and the opposite side screw hole didn't line up well at all. I had to cross-thread the screw into the hole, which tears up the plastic even more from the holes that weren't pre-threaded to begin with.

It is NOT worth the few dollars you might save buying this plastic product instead of a metal product.

3 out of 5 eggsIt didn't fit at all

Pros: for cheap Plastic, the plastic is good quality.

Cons: -The tray is 2.5" and did not fit into ANY of my case's 3.5" drive bay

-The tray was waaay too big for my 2.5" SSD

Other Thoughts: Ended up not using it as it would not fit into any of my 3.5" bays as it was advertised.

Couldn't get a refund for it since by the time i built my computer and realized that it didn't fit, the 30 day policy was up.

It only gets three eggs because it arrived fast, was a good price and was good quality plastic.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Holds two 2.5" HDDs
Fits decently without issue

Cons: Plastic

Other Thoughts: The screws to secure the entire HDD bay to the case are oversized coarse threaded screws, which bite into the plastic tray and hold it in place. It's not a bad design and does the job well, but it should be noted that you won't be working with a metal tray here.

Overall, I'm very satisfied. I had no idea this thing held two drives. It was a very nice surprise. That way whenever I get around to getting an SSD for my server, I can continue to utilize my 2.5" 500GB SATA HDD in the same tray without needing to get an additional adapter.

Very satisfied.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: It is supposed to be a cheap (as in not expensive) piece of plastic that holds a couple of your 2.5" disks and the goes into a 3.5" drive bay. It is exactly what it is supposed to be.

Cons: The upper disk is better ventilated than the lower (which sits directly on the plastic), but then both disks are certainly better ventilated than in a laptop.
