This review is from: Rosewill RDRD-11006 3.5" HDD Mounting Kit for 5.25" Drive Bay
Pros: Works as advertised. I used these to add some 3.5" drives to my NZXT case. It is a little older and isn't particularly well designed given the fact that all drives have to fit in a 5.25" slot regardless of type. I had used up all the brackets that came with the case and needed more. These fit the bill well.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought two of these drives. One I put in a NAS server to function as a cache drive for my ZFS RaidZ configuration. The other I put in a HTPC to act as the OS drive (running Kubuntu 14.04). Since I'm using Linux exclusively, paired with the aforementioned NAS, I don't need much local space so these were perfect. They are super fast. Newegg got them to me real quick. You can't beat the price tag, plus there's a 3-year manufacturer's warranty which means the drives pay for themselves.
Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this drive based on performance, price, and superb warranty.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought this for a HTPC I recently got from a friend. The PSU was going bad and causing random shutdowns. It might have had to do with the fact that he put 5+ hard/dvd drives in it with only a stock 400W PSU! The Silent Pro has run very smoothly for two weeks now without any issues and it's so quiet that I don't even believe the PC is on!
Other Thoughts: The case I have is quite lacking in space (see above) so I couldn't take advantage of the rubber pads that go around it to reduce noise because it wouldn't fit with them on. Even so, there's still barely a whisper from it. Of course, that could be because it's packed so tightly in there that it doesn't have room to wiggle. YMMV.READ FULL REVIEW
