Solid mount, bad screw spacing.

Pros: This is a very solid mount for 2.5" to 3.5" mounting.
Comes with a bunch of screws and a combo SATA cable.
Has bottom screw holes for the case.

Cons: The case-mounting screw holes are not spaced the same as they would be on a 3.5" hard drive. This made it so I could not securely fasten it to my case. This seems to be a common problem with a lot of these... I don't understand why it's so hard to space screw holes properly.

Close enough - Added word of caution in 2018

Pros: Added WORD OF CAUTION in 2018 - These brackets still work great but it appears that some of the drive manufacturers no longer isolate (or recess) wiring board connections in the drive chassis - so these brackets may now contact the surface of the boards. This can cause short circuits and trash your new drive. I suggest you also get some small plastic or nylon washers (#6 size works great) to put between the hard drive and this bracket. The screws that come with the bracket are long enough to go through the extra thickness and still fasten the drive in place.

Designed close enough to fit any laptop drive I've mounted in it. Sure, some drives are so thin that you have to shim under the screws to keep the drive from moving around, but that's not the fault of the adapter. The holes in the drive are just too shallow. This is a great answer for those of us who are tired of overheating desktop drives. Allows the use of a laptop drive in your desktop. They run cooler and their small size allows much more airflow around them.

Cons: None so far and I've used 4 of these. Still no Cons now that it is 2018

Other Thoughts: To those who want "big screw holes" like a 3-1/2 in drive...why? Are your laptop drives as heavy as a desktop drive? Not needed. This fits perfectly in a 3-1/2 inch drive bay and if you want to put it into a 5-1/2, that works too as long as you have adapters like you would use on a desktop hard drive. Those adapters fit just fine as long as you use a washer under the small screw heads so they don't go through the adapter mounting slots.

Workable, but a couple challenges from the Antec case.

Pros: I bought this because I needed the SATA cable anyway. Cable works fine.

Cons: The bend in the tray is a little sharper than the matching bend in the Antec case. This prevented the screw holes from lining up, However, it fit quite nicely upside down. Except for the face plate in the case. So it's held in with two screws and the drive hangs out from the shelf a little bit. However, it's perfectly workable and secure.

Other Thoughts: The tray is holding a 500 GB SSD, thin, light, and low power. Therefore the upside down mounting position works fine.

SSD/HDD drive bay adapter

Pros: Cheap, comes with enough screws and one piece data/power cable to connect an SATA drive up easily.

The SATA cable length is great for easy motherboard connections.

Cons: Not all four mounting screws, for the adapter into a drive bay, will line up. I was mounting an SSD and only needed two of the four to support the drive. The screws into the drive line up with the adapter and you can mount all four.

The SATA cable, on the motherboard end, does not have a latch like most cables.

Convenient!

Pros: These kinds of adapters can be difficult to find, but this one made my life much easier. Perfect for installing a SSD or laptop drive in your older machine without SATA power connectors.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if the SATA cable had the new-style lock on it. No big deal, it doesn't fall out or anything.
