Very Good Mounting Bracket 9/14/2020 1:30:42 PM

Pros: Fair Price Point and sturdy being made from metal. StarTech is a brand name I've trusted over the years for finding hard to locate quality items.

It should take 2 2.5" SSDs and 1 3.5 Inch HDD (Hard Drive). The HDD (Hard Drive) would mount on the bottom side.

I hope that is clear enough. If not please do reply and let me know. I'm happy to help anyway I can. This should work well for most anyone I would imagine.

Cons: This does mount a little weird. The screw heads are a little thick on the back side so it doesn't sit flush against the drive bays on this particular older HP Pavilion Case. Still it mounts fine and is firmly seated with the SSD in place.

Overall Review: Yeah I would recommend this for purchase. Sure while you're at it get several especially if you do a lot of computer repair for people regular or run you're own business like I do.

Well, it works. 6/29/2020 4:57:10 PM

Pros: Fits my 3.5" floppy drive
Solid enough
Arrived quickly

Overall Review: If you need to mount a 3.5" floppy drive or some other device that uses a 3.5" front bay, this works. I got it so that I could mount an existing floppy drive to a case I had lying around, to use in my NuXT build, and it worked for what I wanted.

The people who think that this particular variant (the 3.5" to 5.25" adapter) is to mount SSD's or HDD's clearly have no idea what this item even is or what it's for. Its purpose is pretty much just to mount 3.5" front bay I/O devices, NOT to mount hard or solid state drives. And it works for its intended purpose.

Too tall for standard usage 4/3/2020 1:54:08 PM

Pros: Price was good. Nice that no tools were needed. Came promptly, considering what's happening in the world right now.

Cons: Does NOT fit into standard 1" high disk mounting hardware. This bracket is 1.25" high. Can only be used where the 3.5" disk was mounted by its sides only.

Overall Review: Very disappointed. If they had cost me more money, I would have returned them.

Manufacturer Response:
We're sorry to hear about the difficulties you experienced with our BRACKET225PT. This adapter is 1.2" tall and is designed to be installed in a standard HDD bay in a PC. If you are using a pre-built PC such as Dell or HP and require something that is compatible with their proprietary mounting brackets, we recommend an adapter such as our 25SAT35HDD which is specifically designed to convert a 2.5" drive into a 3.5" drive.
