The 25SATSAS35 2.5-inch SATA/SAS to 3.5-inch SATA Hard Drive Converter converts a 2.5-inch SATA or SAS hard drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) into a 3.5-inch form factor SATA Hard Drive. The converter provides a versatile solution for 2.5-inch drive installations, enabling you to install a 2.5-inch SATA/SAS drive in a 3.5-inch bay, drive drawer caddy/tray, or into a 3.5-inch drive enclosure.
Suitable for drives with a height of up to 15mm, virtually any 2.5-inch SATA or SAS hard drive can be made to look and function like a 3.5-inch hard drive - complete with standard mounting points along the sides and bottom (including 3 points along the sides for compatibility with some Dell systems).
The Drive Converter features a trayless design for simple drive installation and removal, and is constructed of durable, yet lightweight plastics, with ventilation openings to aid air flow and help keep hard drives running cooler.
Works, but mounting holes are wrong
Pros: Proper size, SATA connectors are in correct position - same as a real 3.5 inch hard drive. Price is reasonable, but not what you would call cheap
Cons: Side mounting holes are completely wrong when compared to a real 3.5 inch hard drive. I asked Startech support about this - they say that since many drive mounting positions allow for non-standard mounting holes, this is not a defect. Why not move the holes a couple of mm and allow the thing to fit in ALL drive mount positions??! This converter will not fit in hot-swap drive carriers common in rack mount servers.
Other Thoughts: Major design flaw in an otherwise good product.
