Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"I had no problem mounting my Samsung EVO drive to this adapter and the adapter went easily into the drive slot."
_
"Sadly the partner ide 2 sata adapter from Sabrent didnt work out @ all ... Great drive chassis ... Crappy sata adapter ..."
_
"This adapter and the identical Newer Technology adapter solve that problem and put the SATA plug exactly where it would be on a 3.5 drive."
_
"No bottom mounting holes - that's a big drawback for this adapter bracket without those holes."
_
"I had no problem mounting my Samsung EVO drive to this adapter and the adapter went easily into the drive slot."
_
"Great adapter."
_

Bracket

Bracket:
"The other disapointment is as another reviewer complained about, is the sensless degradation of the sturdy bracket with Sabrent's silly Logos punched everywhere that would otherwise lend usefulness in drilling and tapping ones own mounting holes in their place! "
_
"Computers that use these holes, like Dells, located on the bottom of the drive, to mount the hard drive will not be able to mount this bracket without some creative mounting techniques."
_
"No bottom mounting holes - that's a big drawback for this adapter bracket without those holes."
_
"Unfortunately for me, this bracket can only be side mounted."
_
"In any application in a case that requires use of case-specific screws designed to retain a hard disk, this bracket will not work well."
_
"This shouldn't be difficult, but I'm always amazed at how many other brackets get the hole locations wrong."
_
"The bracket is of good quality."
_
"Then you need this bracket - installs quickly and easily and makes installing the SSD much easier."
_
"I had no problems with the HDD bracket being tapped for metric."
_
"Very nicely made mounting bracket for an SSD drive."
_
"This is a really nice quality bracket."

Case

Case:
"Good product, but one downside: no holes for mounting from bottom as some cases do."
_
"But if you're running a single power cable with two plugs - like those in the Dell case - this is not a good choice."
_
"It comes complete with mounting screws, and it fit my case and drives with no problem."
_
"a necessary addition as my case did not have 2.5 slots, the mounting holes did not line up very well on my case, but i didnt expect them to line up perfectly, it holds my drive more securely than it dangling mounted by a single screw."
_
"Bought this because of the great reviews...unfortunately it was a pain to install my ssd into my pc case."
_
"It could only be installed using side screws, therefore it will not work in any decent case with a 3.5 tray that has rubber dampers, bottom mounted."
_
"Fit well in my computer case"
_
"I had a small hard drive from a laptop, instead of buying another hard drive decided to buy this and it fits in the PC case very easily."
_
"Works perfect for installing 2.5 SSD into 3.5 HD cage in computer case"
_
"It was really easy to screw the SSD into place and put it into the case."
_
"Fit in my case perfectly."

Installation

Installation:

_
"Works perfect for installing 2.5 SSD into 3.5 HD cage in computer case"

Screw

Screw:
"It comes complete with mounting screws, and it fit my case and drives with no problem."
_
"Holes for the drive were not perfectly patterned but were just close enough for the mounting screws to thread in with a little force."
_
"The problem is the screws included with the mounting kit were too short to go through the caddy and into the sabrent bracket."
_
"It could only be installed using side screws, therefore it will not work in any decent case with a 3.5 tray that has rubber dampers, bottom mounted."
_
"Bought three of these even though some people made complaints about standard screws not working and the holes were not positioned correctly."
_
"If you're up to it, you can force standard 3.5 drive mount screws into the holes - but this isn't pleasant and shouldn't be necessary."
_
"The adapter is made very well: heavy steel, not plastic and the screw holes lined up perfectly with the drive."
_
