Pros: It would work if they hadn't sent me two of the same side brakets as they are asymetrical.

Other Thoughts: Did not return first request for rma

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Good Use of Space: Four SSDs in one slot.
Works with the Antec p180
Well-made

Cons: You have to take the two drive brackets off and mount them to the SSD since the screw holes are difficult to access when the brackets are attached.

Other Thoughts: After fiddling around with various solutions for the Antec p180 drive bays, I finally found one that really works. If you plan to upgrade to a larger SSD but you want to keep your old ones, this is a great solution.

5 out of 5 eggs5.25" Bay Solution for SSDs

Pros: Multiple size options and includes a fan. Great choice for the limited 5.25" options available. Can use for multiple drive sizes.

Cons: None for me, but maybe a little fan noise for others.

Other Thoughts: Added a Solid State Drive (SSD) to my tower, but only wanted to use an available 5.25" bay. My searches found lots and lots of 3.5" bay solutions, but hardly any for 5.25. In fact, I think this is the only one. But it's just what I wanted. And I can add another (I think you can stack 4 of the 2.75" wide drives on top of each other, but that would probably trap heat).
My 5.25" bay has a mesh screen, which will help with air flow and any heat issues, and the fan on this kit was bonus.
The kit comes with screws for its features such as adjusting positions of the brackets for different drive sizes, but doesn't come with screws for mounting drives. I've purchased two brands of excellent SSDs. One came with its own 3.5" bay bracket, screws, and cables (Intel). But the other came with only the drive - no additional hardware (Samsung Pro). So depending on the drive, you may need to provide your own screws to mount the drive in the bracket.
Tip: You will probably need to mount the internal brackets first to the drive (one on each side), then mount that assembly to the bay bracket. Just be sure to line up the side drive brackets evenly before tightening and attaching to the bay bracket.
It's not a con to me, but I will add that the little fan adds a little noise.... a slightly high-freq hum. I notice it because it's right at the front just behind a mesh screen. Because of my other fans, I could just disconnect it because I think I have good enough air flow. But the new hum in my rig doesn't bother me.... you may not even notice it.
Bottom line, the 5.25" bay choices are very limited, but this was perfect (for me anyway) and may have picked it over several others anyway. Very pleased with it. May buy another just to have in reserve since the choices are few.
