5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive bay adapter

Pros: Fits any 3.5" bay device, exactly as said

Cons: Have to use a screw driver to pop out the front panel, black face assembly does not attach to the metal bay insert itself so you have to guess-and-check where you're positioning the 3.5" bay peripheral you're installing a few times to get it right.

Other Thoughts: I own two of these specific Antec 30300 5.25" to 3.5" adapters. They're the ONLY ones on the market with a pseudo "honeycomb" look to the front which matches the honeycombing of the metal grating on my NZXT Phantom full tower case--so naturally it's what I'd buy. Overall it's a great deal. Be careful not to cut yourself when you pop the front metal plate off of the aluminum drive bay insert. Also--be ready to guess-and-check the inner 3.5" device's position...a lot... It's worth it for the look of this, but annoying if you're sober or tired.

1 out of 5 eggsit just didn't fit

Pros: I'm sure it works for some?

Cons: It didn't fit in my bay, , and I'm sure it wouldn't have properly fit no matter how I put it in. The front plate for one wouldn't even fit in my 5.25" bay.

It came with no instructions.

It doesn't state that it doesn't fit certain front bays on the store page.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes not fit the Antec 302 case without modification

Pros: -Sturdy
-I'm sure it fits the 300 fine

Cons: -Does not fit the 302
-Really hard to install a device in it using the side screw holes, unless you have a magnetic screwdriver

Other Thoughts: I had to cut off one of the pins from the case's drive lock mechanism to get it to fit, but I'm not taking off any eggs since it's not made for the 302.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great, Looks Great, Does what it's supposed to

Pros: Fits great, looks great, easy enough to install, does what it's supposed to. Not much else to say.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used to install a StarTech 35FCREADBK3 internal card reader (Item# N82E16820130013) in an Antec Three Hundred Illusion Computer Case (Item# N82E16811129066). The included face plate blended perfectly with the case.

5 out of 5 eggsFits perfectly

Pros: Matches the Antec 300 series computer cases perfectly! I don't get what the complaints are, except people are putting them in cases that are NOT 300 series...
I have installed these in at least 10 different 300 and Illusion cases for card readers without a single glitch...perfect!

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: These seem to be out of stock everywhere, even at the Antec store online. Bummer, had to go with another brand...it looks nice, but doesn't match the grill pattern like this one does.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Adapter

Pros: The speed of shipping was the first Pro. The adapter was exactly what I needed. It fit perfectly and looks great. There are a lot of places for screws for your item. BTW, screws were included.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsDon't assume Antec implies cross case compatibility

Pros: It has a good look, solid metal build and has several screw hole options. I was able to use this with my Antec 280 case with some alteration. 3.5" items fit very nicely in the caddy.

Cons: The description reads Antec 300 so this is only a con if you don't have the right Antec case. The holes are not exactly standard. Two holes found on a 5.25" DVD are offset on this item. Also, the front face metal grill is larger than standard so it will not fit in a standard 5.25" drive bay.

Other Thoughts: I chose to "adapt" this to my Antec 280 case. Armed with a small grinder, it was easy to cut the metal grill that wraps around the sides without damaging the underlying plastic. With a drill I added back the 4 holes on the sides. Now it slides easily, and snugly, into my P280 case. It even clips into the toolless drive holders integrated into the drive bay.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Matches my Antec 300 case perfectly.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This adapter allowed me to mount the USB 3.0 adapter that came with my motherboard perfectly. Keep in mind, it's made for the Antec 300 case specifically, so if you're using it with another case, caveat emptor. How it installs will be dependent on what you're mounting with it. There are 2 sets of screw holes in the case mount, an upper and a lower. They are offset depending on how far into or out of the case you need to be. I needed it out farther so the USB adapter lined up with my case front, so I used the lower holes. It comes with 4 screws to mount to the case, so you'll need screws for the item you're mounting. Again, it's made specifically for the Antec 300 case, it is NOT a generic, so if you're not sure it'll fit your case, you may want to get a generic.
