1 out of 5 eggs NON-STANDARD SIDE SCREW HOLES!! 05/05/2014

This review is from: VANTEC HDA-250M 2.5" to 3.5" Mounting Kit

Pros:

- nice black, solid metal item

Cons:

- I should've seen the other reviews for this product when I bought it but didn't. As everyone else noticed, the side screw holes which are used to mount this inside the 3.5" drive bay are not standard size. My screws didn't work. Normally, this would not have been an issue as I could have used the included screws. Alas, my case requires the use of ridiculously long screws to secure anything in a bay. The included screws were to short while the screws included with my case would not work as this adapter used non standard thread screws.

STANDARDS EXIST FOR A REASON!!!

Other Thoughts:

Some products, if you are concerned about them, you can give a 4 or 3 stars to. This type of product either works or it doesn't. Since it didn't use standards threads in the holes, this product simply didn't work making this the first time I've given a product a 1 star on newegg.

It is a shame. This product is very well built and solid. It just simply didn't work.

You've been warned.
