This review is from: Rosewill RDRD-11003 2.5" SSD / HDD Mounting Kit for 3.5" Drive Bay with 60 mm Fan
Well-designed, with lots of thought gone into its construction. Fits well into 3.5in bay, proper holes drilled for 2.5in drive mounting, fan is not necessary for normal laptop drive but with a bit of remounting adds even more cooling for even the warmest 2.5in drive. Only mounted one but even with normal case airflow involved there were no overheating difficulties.
The material is not aluminum as far as can be determined, but I hesitate to label it as "mild steel", or even iron truth be told. The material is strong, not easily bendable but not brittle, with a firm basis for mounting at least a single 2.5in drive with no difficulties.
All the extra open area there that is not absolutely necessary for mounting fans or drives leaves lots of room for airflow while not detracting from the strength of the mounting points. I think the fan is a bit of overkill for most installations, but hey, cooler equipment is long-lived equipment. so kudos to Rosewill for this offering.
Just a suggestion: speaking as a computer upgrader, extra holes to mount in a floppy drive bay and a blank faceplate would have added even more to the attraction for this item, but even though Rosewill is normally in the forefront of options and usability for its offerings no one seemed to have thought of this possibility so just the HDD mounting options seem sufficient it appears.
