Pros: Screws work, Solid fit all around, All holes align properly
Cons: None that I can see.
Other Thoughts: Wound up using this one at work to swap out a hard drive and keep a computer up and running. Worked perfectly when using a normal 2.5'' non-SSD, SATA drive. Was pleasantly surprised that all the holes aligned properly, both to the hard drive itself and to the computer's hard drive bay without any machinations.

Pros: The slot doors seem alright, the outside build doesn't seem flimsy.
Cons: Cases come with slots for mounting 5.25" drives, and have rail tabs between the slots. Other ICY products seem to have depressions in their case design to account for this--but not this model. As such, I'm having to bend the tabs in my case which is very difficult.
The slots / bays seem to be flimsy on the inside, the backplane and SATA connectors do not appear to be high quality. I doubt this will support much insertion and removal.
Other Thoughts: The LED/light buttons seem totally unnecessary. I got two of these before checking reviews, would not recommend. Still have yet to functionally test due to design flaw with case compatibility in the market.
ICYDOCK Customer support here, with a few questions for you. First of all, I'm sorry to hear you have been had trouble installing this into your system. Can I ask which case you are using? We design our products to fit the majority of cases, ones that follow the standardized sizes. Some cases may have slight oddities to their mounting system, and it's hard to account for the different ones. Which tabs on the case are you referring to, the ones that separate the 5.25" bays?
Have you had any specific problems with the back-plane or any of the connections? We try to use the highest quality manufacturing methods and materials available, and we would like to know if this unit has any shortcomings. If you do have any problems, remember that all our products are backed by a full 3-year warranty against all defects.
Please do get back to us, either here on Newegg, or through our customer support line. We have support available during the week, with options for phone support, email, or a live-chat system. Links to all our support methods can be found here: http://www.icydock.com/contact_info.php

Pros: This is my first SSD mounting bracket I have ever purchased as I have just bought my first SSD a few weeks ago. I picked this one because it just looks plain. Others look more complex and bulky. This also came with screws to screw both the SSD into the bracket and also the bracket into the computer case. I however didn't need the case screws as I have tool free drive installs. All in all it looks great and makes my SSD look great through the window of my side panel. Also sets my SSD perfectly inline with the fan to stay cool(if it even gets hot?? lol)
Other Thoughts: I recommend this to everyone looking for an SSD bracket. May be a few extra dollars than some others, but its a 1 time buy. Doesn't go out of date like a processor or GPU or any other component on a PC. Can buy this today and be using it in 10 years still.

Pros: Purchase this think it would be a better investment and more affordable than external hard drives. I absolutely love it. Does exactly what I needed to do. Data transfer is so much faster. Then try to use an external hard drive.
Cons: The ejection button sometimes it is hard to push down. Concerning that the arm could fail over time.
