Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"for an adapter that means it is 100% useless."
_
"This seems to be a fairly common problem--I've seen it with another 2.5 to 3.5 adapter."
_
"Good product but not recommended for imac 2007 and you need other adapter."
_
"It worked with the screws included with the adapter, but that didn't do me any good because those screws were too short to reach the adapter through the rubbery buffers."
_
"com gp product B002Z2QDNE Worked straight away after 2-3 normal adapters including the Kingwin failed to work in this particular application."
_
"Great little adapter (especially for the price)...Only issue is that some cases use the larger threads on thumb screws to mount hard drives and the 'outer' screw holes are threaded for the smaller, notebook style screws."
_
"this adapter worked pretty well."
_
"This metal adapter fits perfectly, and the metal provides a good heatsink for the drives."
_
"Since these are meant to be used as an adapter to put a 2.5 drive into a 3.5 drive bay it would be nice if the bottom was designed a little more like a 3.5 drive with holes where mounting holes on 3.5 drives would be."
_
"Easier to just order the OCZ adapter (which is only a couple bucks more) than spend time tracking down screws that fit."

Bracket

Bracket:
"The problem I had is that the mount is made so that the 2.5 drive is in the middle of the bracket."
_
"(The 3.5 mounting bracket included with the SSD wasn't compatible with my caddy or trays either."
_
"Unfortunately when you mount the 2.5 drive into the bracket it doesn't put the connections in the same location as they would be if it actually were a 3.5 drive."
_
"Came with screws - the solid state drive fit in it and it fit in the computer - hard to love (5 Star) a bracket"
_
"its a metal bracket, it did a good job"
_
"It is shorter than a 3.5, but matches the width (so cases will work well with this).For the money, this is an excellent mounting bracket."
_
"The loaded bracket fit into my case perfectly: it wasn't too big or too small."
_
"The quality of the bracket was very good."
_
"This is a good bracket that allows flexibility in installing a SSD in the 3.5 bay."

Cable

Cable:
"This same design makes it hard to use the standard power cables, especially if it in the middle connection on the cable."
_
"works as stated, note that if you mount 2 drives the top one will not be able to take a 90 SATA cable."
_
"Oh, it say you can put two, but if you have power that is serialized in the same cable you might have problems connecting 2 drives because they are too close, for two power connectors that are not at the tip or end of a cable."
_
"This adapter fits the 2.5 SSD with no problem, but you won't be able to connect it since the cables are too short."
_
"I love this traynow I don't feel like i am wasting a hard drive bay for that tiny SSD because i get to fit 2 in itthe only thing that sucks is I think the drives should mount closer to the rear but it works just fine, just a little effort needed to make the cables look pretty"
_
"I'm sure this would work great if I was using loose cables to connect my hard drive to the computer."
_
"By using 1 right angle SATA cable, I was able to get 2 SSDs *2nd is a cache drive for a 3TB HDD* in it, so it worked out very well on this build."
_
"3 stars because although it says it fits two drives, it would be near impossible for the cables to fit nicely right next to each other."
_
"I had to get creative to find a way to mount it and cable it without disassembling everything."
_

Case

Case:
"Overall, it's fine, considering the cost, but the placement of the holes isn't compatible with a variety of case requirements."
_
"but my problem hit when i tried putting it in my case."
_
"i have an antec 900 so i pretty much HAVE to use the screws that came with the case... WRONG!"
_
"IT FIT PERFECT ,NO PROBLEM WITH THE INSTALATION ,EXTRA HARDWARE ( SCREWS) IN CASE YOU NEED THEM ,GOOD MANUFACTURE STRONG ,I'LL BUY AGAIN."
_
"So basically you may or may not be able to secure this into your case depending on the screws you have available and your computer case."
_
"Some small screws were supplied, but the sort length make them incompatible with my case and hard drive mounting system."
_
"Works fine, but would have been nice if it came with something to clip it onto the case."
_
"It is shorter than a 3.5, but matches the width (so cases will work well with this).For the money, this is an excellent mounting bracket."
_
"Some others may complain about screw holes not lining up, but I did not have any problems in three different cases."
_
"I might as well have just left it dangling in the case."
_
"The loaded bracket fit into my case perfectly: it wasn't too big or too small."

Price

Price:
"A cheap solution to a simple problem, but you can likely do much better, with far less risk of hurting yourself during the install."
_
"It is shorter than a 3.5, but matches the width (so cases will work well with this).For the money, this is an excellent mounting bracket."
_
"nice idea and dirt cheap but poorly made so that it in fact won't fit in a standard 3.5 slot."
_
"Great little adapter (especially for the price)...Only issue is that some cases use the larger threads on thumb screws to mount hard drives and the 'outer' screw holes are threaded for the smaller, notebook style screws."
_
"It would be nice if they were sanded to smooth edges but I can understand at these prices they can't afford a Chinese to hand sand them and I don't know if a tumbler type device would work without damaging the screw holes."
_
"You want this one best price on 2.5 to 3.5 HDD bay, here there or elsewhere .. period."

Screw

Screw:
"Using the spot to mount a drive on the side near the 3.5 inch rails can be a challenge in terms of positioning the screws around the rails and getting them started."
_
"It worked with the screws included with the adapter, but that didn't do me any good because those screws were too short to reach the adapter through the rubbery buffers."
_
"i dont recommend this thing unless you have cd-drive screws and a direct hole to the bracket."
_
"i have an antec 900 so i pretty much HAVE to use the screws that came with the case... WRONG!"
_
"Finally, the screw sockets for the bottom drive are hard to use."
_
"It comes with screws and everything you need to install this, and is very well made and stays put when you are finished."
_
"Some others may complain about screw holes not lining up, but I did not have any problems in three different cases."
_
"Came with screws and well made."
_
"The bracket has eight holes to hold the 2 drives from the side, and there are access ports to allow you to install the lower screws without trouble, although I do recommend a magnetized #1 or #0 Phillips screwdriver!"
_
"While this is a perfectly serviceable product, which fit the standard slots well enough, inserting the screws to hold the drive in place is quite an ordeal."
