5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Adapter

Pros: Inexpensive with free shipping (probably cost a few cents to make in China). It's made of plastic so is very light and effective. You have to use a bit of elbow grease to insert the 3.5 inch device so it passes through and is flush with the front plate; if not the screw holes will not line up.

Cons: None if you don't manhandle it.

Other Thoughts: I used it to install a front panel USB3 adapter in an older Antec Case and a new motherboard. Works perfectly.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's a bracket

Pros: It certainly is.

Cons: Didn't give me a back massage

Other Thoughts: It's a fine, cheap bracket. No reason not to get it. It will fulfill all of your bracket-related, non-massage needs.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a plastic bracket to put a 3.5" drive into a 5.25" drive bay. Pretty simple.

Pros: It fits the devices and system I was using. It's black.

Cons: It's cheap plastic. The top part of mine was broken, but I used it anyway because it's not exactly complicated. I figured I would glue it later or something.

Other Thoughts: I might recommend looking into something more durable. Maybe in metal. Otherwise this is fine.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks but kind of flimsy.

Pros: Includes everything you need and works well for the price

Cons: Easy to break the front plate without knowing it by simply trying to take it out of the package. It's placed in the package so that the front cover is at the top, and, when you put a finger in to pull out the box cover it can easily also grab the plastic and snap it in the middle as it's only about a 1/4" wide at that spot. Could easily prevent this by facing the front cover toward the back of the box.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked well for me

Pros: - Inexpensive
- One piece design
- Comes with screws

Cons: - Doesn't seem to be very rugged, but better than another one I had that broke.

Other Thoughts: I had another brand in which the front bezel was a separate part that snapped onto the tray. The first time I removed the computer case front panel, to add a fan, the case caught on the front bezel of the adapter and the snaps broke off. This design is still a cheap piece of plastic, but the front bezel and the tray is molded in a single piece. No snaps to break makes this a better design. I used it to mount a 3.5" chassis that added 2 USB 3.0 ports. Everything lined up fine. I didn't get the Bytecc at Newegg; a local place had it and I didn't want to wait.

2 out of 5 eggsI mean you can use it...

Pros: Cheap, Simple

Cons: Low quality, Problems with fitting, Not very secure, Arrived broken

Other Thoughts: I guess I would say I got what I paid for. It came to me slightly broken, but I had already changed my build around this so I had to use it. Could not screw in my HDD like I wanted because it would not line up properly. I have already ordered a replacement and will be trashing this. I'm sure it may be better for someone with a different HDD (and a not broken one dock) but it feels flimsy and I don't fell comfortable traveling with my computer with this limited protection. I would suggest spending the extra cash and get one of the better ones (Icy dock has a really good one for $10 that I will now use)

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Did get it installed

Cons: Sloppy dimensions. Front width as others have noted is too narrow. Front height is too wide. This bracket installed in a Rosewill Challenger (Lian LI) case with some difficulty. It was very difficult to replace the case blank that goes under it to fill the third bay. The drive above it is standard width. Also the screws that secure the 3.5 inch device in it have heads that are too small resulting in broken plastic without over tightening. Screws may come loose and fall into the case during operation.

Other Thoughts: Hardest time I've had putting a device in a 5.5 inch bay.

5 out of 5 eggsIt does what it is designed to do

Pros: My card reader fits into perfectly, it came 2 sets of 4 screws, it has 3 side and 2 bottom mounts. the back side mounts are 1 inch from the center mounts and the center mounts are 2 1/2 inchs apart.
bottom mounts are 3 inches away from each other.

5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Holds the card reader in place. Pretty durable plastic. I'm not going to drop kick it or anything to see if it will break though. If you want a metal one buy a metal one. The price is right.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsFit the bill for a PC retrofit

Pros: Price is right.
Great for retrofitting new parts in an old case.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Built a new HTPC and media server, decided to save fifty bucks by using an old case I had lying around. This let me add some data drives into the old tower drive slots.
