Completely unusable 2/18/2020 2:53:21 PM

Overall Review: It does not hold drives in place at all. They pop out of place when you try to connect cables.
It place the drives too far back in the drive bay, making it nearly impossible to attach or remove cables.
It's mounting pegs are not long enough. If the drive bay has vibration dampers, the pegs will not reach through them.

OK, but lacking 12/27/2019 9:39:52 AM

Pros: Inexpensive, comes with cables and plenty of decent screws, simple.

Cons: OK, maybe I missed something, but I'm not sure I understand why this bracket is not as long as a 3.5" drive. The four mounting holes around the edges do not line up with the usual mounting holes that you might find in a Dell desktop drive caddy. I was able to use it by bolting it on to the drive cage itself, but it did not work with Dell's no-tools-required drive caddy at all, and I suspect that this might be the case with other brands.

Overall Review: If you know this is going to work with your computer drive tray, get it - it's cheap and cheerful. If you have any doubts, however, I'd look for a longer mounting bracket that is a little more universal.

Solid, secure mounting adapter. 10/8/2019 12:12:09 AM

Pros: Easily installed, good solid bracket. Comes with fasteners. Excellent quality.

Comes complete with 6-32 x 1/4 screws for the 3.5" HDD, and M3 x 1/4 screws to attach the bracket in the 5.25" bay (don't get them mixed up like I did!)

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Great product!

Cheaply made but works ok 9/7/2019 9:36:10 AM

Pros: There's not much to say about it. It does what it says it does.

Cons: -Kind of cheaply made. I bought two and one of them arrived with a crack in it, which is no big deal since it is in the very back and doesn't affect anything.

-Certain things don't quite fit. I bought a Vantec front panel USB 2.0 hub and even though it's supposedly 3.5" I had to file the side of this adapter down a bit to get it to fit. I'm not sure if it's the adapter or if the hub was made slightly too wide, though.

Overall Review: For the price I guess I can recommend it. It works, but it's cheap and plastic and you should know what to expect from that.

Solid mount, bad screw spacing. 3/14/2019 8:02:41 AM

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.
