1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for me

Pros: -Its an adapter.

Cons: -The front panel is held to the tray with 4 barbed snaps. The front panel is a tight fit into the case front panel. First time I had to pop the panel off, 3 of the 4 barbs snapped off. Not a lot of force involved - the plastic is hard and brittle. I'll repair it with epoxy, which will be a big improvement.

Other Thoughts: If you get this thing, either epoxy the panel to the tray before you install it, or be very, very careful. The tabs are super fragile.

5 out of 5 eggsWhen you need an adapter....

Pros: Solid construction.
Well-known Vantec name.
Necessary screws included.

Cons: Slightly pricy for a plastic bracket.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to match up with a Vantec USB 3.0 port adapter (my Antec 300 case has no 3.5" bays on the front).
It blends in nicely with the black case.
The port panel fit the adapter perfectly (one would hope, they are from the same manufacturer).
Highly recommended if you need to mount a 3.5" device and only have 5.25" bays available.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks and looks great

Pros: The finish on the plastic doesn't look out of place on my system
It came with all the appropriate mounting screws I needed
Pretty easy to use
There is a very nice subtle tapered edge that is difficult to see in the pictures, which makes whatever you put there look far less conspicious

Cons: The placement of the screws on the inside track, and the holes to get a screwdriver to them, makes it difficult to impossible to adjust the screws while this adapter is in your system. A very minor problem but still I found it inconvenient during my assembly to need to take the entire converter out of my system to tighten a screw or two

Other Thoughts: Overall I was very satisfied with the amount of quality I got for the price and I will happily buy another if the need arises

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy - poor fit to device

Pros: It's black.....

Cons: Vantech 3.5 faceplate adapter amazingly doesn't fit tightly to it's own brand (Vantec) card reader.... gaps on all edges that you can easily see through. I did not even put it in the case... the card reader fit so poorly in the faceplate adapter, that I got on NewEgg and ordered two different brands to see which ones would fit best. Will update.... but I wouldn't recommend this Vantec unit.

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.
