5 out of 5 eggsWorked out nicely

Pros: I used this with a NZXT 210 case so I could mount my old 2.5 card reader. I'm very happy with it. Works as expected.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as intended

Pros: Solid construction. No warping. Stuff almost fit perfect.

Cons: The opening for the 3.5 was maybe .5 mm too small. The plastics like this can only be within a certain tolerance. If you just take a razor blade and drag it across the plastic with slight pressure it'll shave very slightly. Do that a couple times until your device fits perfect. Don't take off too much. Shave, test, repeat.

Other Thoughts: All these adapters are in the same price range. I tried this one and it was acceptable even with the modification required. They're all 4/5 eggs so someone always has something to deal with. Also the tapping plastic screws must be used, don't try and use something else because it must tap new threads into the plastic on the 5.25" mount.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to

Pros: It can hold a 3.5" device in a 5.25" bay
Didn't have any issues making it fit

Cons: Surprisingly it didn't make my computer any faster

Other Thoughts: Worked perfectly to fit a media card reader in my case that didn't have a 3.5" slot. Seems good enough quality for something like this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat adapter

Pros: I bought this adapter to adapt the Vantec dual USB port front panel from a 3.5 inch drive to a 5.25 inch drive. I was skeptical about the quality of the part at first since it was made of plastic, but after putting it in, it was flawless and adapted to my case very well as well as it looks nice because it is black and it blends in with my all black case.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsokay

Pros: It works, with a tweak on some cases.

Cons: Had to drill my own holes for a case the ones on it didn't match up. But it does do what it is intended to do.

Other Thoughts: One egg off just for the fact I had to make my own holes for a case. Other then that it works well.

5 out of 5 eggsCard Reader Mount

Pros: -Clean look
-Sturdy
-Opening is perfect size

Cons: -Sidemount openings are tough for big fingers

Other Thoughts: This thing worked great for mounting a card reader in one of the 5.25" slots. The black matched perfectly and the opening was the perfect size to give that clean look.
