Mounting issues 04/09/2010
This review is from: iStarUSA DIY-RP-HDD2.5 2.5" to 3.5" Hard Drive Mounting Bracket
Fits my X-25M 160GB SSD perfect. Solid construction.
Did not fit the mounts (screws) on my Antec Sonata Elite case. The exterior holes for the 3.5" mounting were too small. This angered me, because all the screws and mounting kits fit my standard 3.5" drives for referencing. Luckily, my dad was able to help me drill and re-thread the holes with proper tools, but not everyone will be that lucky.
Most people shouldn't have an issue with this, but if your case has proprietary mounts and screws, be warned that the exterior 3.5" holes may be too small on these mounts. Go to your local hardware store and pickup a "tap and die" kit to fix the issue like I did. A high powered drill may be needed.
