1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit into case

Pros: It comes with screws that fit into the SSD. (Best to practice screwing in the screws before putting on the bracket, to get the threads to fit well, so it doesn't go in crooked later and strip out threads)

Cons: Doesn't work in Antec case. The Antec has many options for fitting almost any drive (best I've ever seen), however, the OCZ bracket does not line up with standard holes. I ended up using additional metal strips from a hardware store, drilling new holes, and taping in new threads (an hours work) to get this over-priced piece of junk to work.

Other Thoughts: As others mentioned, you can only hold it in by 2 screws (not 4), so one end flops around and blocks air flow. If OCZ would bother to look at a 3.5 inch Hard disk drive holes, they would understand that the HDD is longer than their bracket, and the holes in their bracket are much too close together to line up with the holes in a case.

5 out of 5 eggsfits fine

Pros: Fits fine. The screws are just long enough to mount the brackets on to rails that slide into antec case.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not adapt to 3.5" HDD standard

Pros: Price.

Cons: Does not work. The purpose of this bracket is to adapt to a 3.5" HDD cage. A 3.5" HDD uses #6-32 screws, and this "adapter"uses M3 (metric) screws, which are supplied with it. Problem is, if your case requires a longer screw (as many Antec cases do), you are out of luck, since the longer #6-32 (STANDARD 3.5" HDD) screws you have won't work with the M3 threads on the OCZ bracket.

Now, OCZ has replied to many complaints on here and will probably reply to this one as well with a generic "Hello! We are sorry you are experiencing problems! This should work with all standard cases!" Thanks, but no thanks... that statement helps very little. It's about like saying "We are sorry, this square peg should fit in that round hole!" It doesn't fix the problem. I design brackets for space vehicles for NASA for a living, and this bracket is about as simple as it gets... hard to believe they found a way to blow it. Try again OCZ, I will be RMA'ing this one.

Other Thoughts: Not a problem for me specifically, but in addition to using the wrong screw thread, they only have 4 of the 6 holes that ALL 3.5" HDD's have. If you have a case that needs access to the missing holes, you are out of luck.

Again, this is supposed to be an adapter to make this mount like a 3.5" HDD. In short:

3.5" HDD has: 6x #6-32 screwholes
This "adapter" has: 4x M3 screwholes

So they failed at both the number of screws and the type of screw. Poor form.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, longer screws are available at most home and hardware if they are required.

5 out of 5 eggsNo problems here

Pros: Fits perfectly

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I don't understand what people are talking about the screws holes getting stripped. If you install your drive properly there should be no need to remove the rails from the drive unless your putting it into something else. Just take your time, perform a dry run, check twice and screw once.
Recommended as an inexpensive alternative to other price solutions.

1 out of 5 eggsNo good

Pros: None

Cons: They don't work well, they are brackets, how difficult is it to make brackets

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you are having problems. These brackets have been designed to match our SSD drives and should fit standard ATX cases. If you have any questions, please visit our support forums at the link below.
Thank you

3 out of 5 eggsHey it's a bracket!

Pros: Works to adapt a 2.5" drive to a 3.5" bay.

Cons: Needs more holes! My case mount only allowed me to affix this bracket with two screws rather than the four I'd have like to have used. Needed some kind of instructions -- took a few minutes to figure out how it went in.

Other Thoughts: Maybe better if I'd not had to install it in a spare 3.5" floppy bay instead of a bay designed specifically for a 3.5" hard drive.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy something else

Pros: Black finish, that's why I bought them.

Cons: 1. Bracket's mounting holes do not match the drive cage. I ended up screwing two out of four.
2. Very soft metal. No matter how gentle you deal with this you WILL strip the treads when you want to mount it in the drive cage. If you've ever used a screw driver in your life you should have a pretty good idea about how to use it... buy these and prove yourselves wrong.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you had difficulties. This product should work in standard drive bays.
Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsNot Compatible with many computers

Pros: Well made.

Cons: Not sufficient length to mount in standard vertical bay, and some horizontal bay and tray arrangements.

Other Thoughts: These rails are only 4" in length, as opposed to the standard ones from other manufacturers that are 6" in length, the long dimension of a 3.5" internal hard drive. While these have different slots for mounting, they do not have any integral threads to receive screws, so while the 2.5" drive can mount to these with the included screws, the assembled unit needs to be mounted to a tray that contains the threads. Otherwise it will take an additional nut and bolt set to mount it to the bay or tray. And even then, this can only be accomplished in the horizontal configuration, and then only if there are mounting holes that span less than about 3 1/2". Not very user friendly, particularly for newer computer cases!
