5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Corsair 650D

Pros: Perfect fit and look for anyone with the brushed aluminum face like the Corsair 650D has. Matches perfectly.

Cons: Kinda hard to get the screws in place, but with a little work its not a problem

Other Thoughts: I looked around for a front panel bay converter. After seeing a bunch of cheap black plastic ones, I decided to go with this one. Its quality Silverstone brand, brushed aluminum look that fits my cases appearance perfectly. Ya, its not the easiest to install an internal card reader, but if you have a long magnetic screwdriver, it can be done without too many issues. Oh ya, comes with a bunch of extra stuff that you may not need, so its just extra stuff to use elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for CC600T

Pros: Well constructed and made out of metal instead of plastic like the less expensive alternatives. As other reviewers have stated, you can remove the black front panel as I did.

Cons: Not tool-less for 3.5" HDD.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 4 of these adapters to fit additional 3.5" HDD into the 5.25" bays of my Corsair CC600T.

I was initially concerned that this adapter would not cooperate with the case's tool-free design. To my surprise, this adapter worked flawlessly with it and fit perfectly. Removing the adapter's black front panel allowed me to slide it in far enough so that I could reuse the case's existing mesh covers.

Although the adapter fits snug, you can use additional screws (which are included) for extra security.

It is important to note that although the adapter to case is tool-free, the 3.5" HDD to the adapter is not. To install HDD to the adapter, you will need to use the included screws.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well.

Pros: Flexible mounting options, excellent choice for relocating multiple drives out of the 3.5" slots.

Cons: None really. It isn't perfect, but caters to quite a bit of different mounting schemes. No problem here with the included hardware or getting screws installed.

Other Thoughts: Depending on your case design, you can mount the bracket upside down, which solves the problem of the cable/orientation mismatch of the SSD and HDD (both are right-side-up), at the expense of obstructing an extra bay.

4 out of 5 eggsLet down by cheap screws

Pros: These are nice chunky all-metal adapters. The front textured metal face-plate is secured by screws so you can easily remove it for fitment, since it protrudes beyond the sides slightly. It's also great to have the option of using it for both 2.5" and 3.5" drives. I'm using a pair of these in the optical bays of a Mac Pro and they work great.

Cons: The screws. Really. These come with the cheapest screws I've ever come across for anything. They take the form of a screw, they will fit on the end of a screwdriver, they are even a bit shiny like a screw. But just using my finger-tip and thumb-tip on the screwdriver to tighten them and they strip out. It also seems like an oversight to not have a rubber grommet system for vibration dampening when the rest is so nice.

Other Thoughts: Like others have mentioned applying the screws for a 3.5" drive is a bit tricky. I found it pretty easy to do once I dipped the tip of my screwdriver into some rubber cement to hold the screw on, then navigate Operation-like into the adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsFits nicely in a Corsair 600t.

Pros: Perfect for 2 SSD's & a single 3.5 inch. It goes into the front side of the case with the open side facing down. You can push it all the way back into the 5.25 drive bay & replace any mesh grill on the front of the case.

It's metal. All the other ones are cheap plastic. Best 5.25 inch adapter on NewEgg at the moment & it fits 3 drives!

My build: Corsair 600t, 128GB Crucial M4, ASRock Extreme 6, 16GB of Corsair Vengance & an i7 3770k.

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsIt Worked!

Pros: I got this bay converter because my case lacked a 3.5" bay to put my Intel 3.5" bay usb 3.0 panel that came with my motherboard and this did the trick! The other great thing is that if I decide to do another build I can always use this to mount 2 extra SSD's in a 5.25" bay if need be.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: It just works and is constructed great! I mean it's metal which is obviously better than the fall apart plastic options out there so I know I can use this into the future with other builds.
