This review is from: VANTEC HDA-259A Dual 2.5" to 3.5" Hard Drive Mounting Kit
Pros: Clever and functional design engineered to serve it's purpose. One of few options for solving the problem of SSD manufacturers not including a mounting bracket, ala OCZ Agility.
Cons: Don't get me wrong, I appreciate a manufacturer streamling material costs but this bracket probably floats on water. Beer can thinness of metal and poly-bag packaging make for damaged shipments; I had to repair one of the four drive-mount tabs with JB Weld. Supports SSDs fine but I don't know if I'd trust it to support the weight of a mechanical drive. When mounting your drive in the bay, as soon as the bolt seats itself STOP TORQUING or you will strip the bracket's nearly imperceptible threads. Tray length allows for optional mounting of an 80 mm cooling fan but disallows use of a 90 degree SATA plug unless you turn the SSD upside down.
Other Thoughts: Unique twist on a simple need, the mounting bracket. Newegg should throw in missing mounting brackets for SSDs, by the way, to keep up the customer morale. Thank you in advance.READ FULL REVIEW
