This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5" HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Pros: Easy to put together; comes with all of the screws you need; cheap.
Cons: The dimensions of this device are such that the SATA connectors on your 2.5" drive will be in a different location than on a real 3.5" drive. It will not work in a hot-plug tray and may require a little creativity.
Other Thoughts: To clarify NewEgg's extremely muddled description: This is a kit that lets you mount a 2.5" hard drive in a 3.5" hard drive bay (not a floppy drive bay). I mounted it in a Dell Precision T3610 hard drive tray, but the odd dimensions of the kit made the connectors recessed, so that Dell's 90 degree cables wouldn't reach. A quick mod of the tray resolved that problem, though I won't be able to mount a second hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingston 8GB ECC Registered DDR3 1866 System Specific Memory Model KTD-PE318/8G
Pros: As indicated by Kingston's memory search tool, this part (rather, a pair of these parts) works well with a Dell Precision T3610.
Other Thoughts: I always order Dell computers with minimal RAM, then order the capacity I want from NewEgg using Kingston modules. I have never encountered a compatibility problem when I follow Kingston's recommendation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC BRACKET - 125 HDD / SSD 1 x 2.5" Drive to 3.5" Bay Metal Mounting Kit – OEM
Pros: Simple and solid. Comes with mounting screws for the HDD and the tray.
Cons: The product description says that this tray mount in a hard drive bay. That is incorrect. It has the screw placement and pitch to mount in a floppy drive bay.
Other Thoughts: I wanted to mount my SSD in a hard drive bay, but it's not like anyone has a floppy drive these days, so I mounted it there.
I suspect half of the reviewers have never built a computer with a floppy drive, so their confusion at the funny screw hole placement is understandable. :)
